Benefits for Mobile Operators


GSMA eSIM Discovery is the first digital solution for both eSIM consumer and consumer IoT profile activation. Also, it and provides the cleanest in and out of store experience. Since it does not require the print and distribution costs associated with the barcode methodology. For instance, there’s no need for plastic or paper at point of sale, as activation can happen from home.

MNOs who are early adopters understand the benefits eSIMs bring. Chiefly, seeing their deployment as helping to drive the growth of customer ARPU (Average Revenue Per User). Through multiple device subscription plans per user, as well as a reduction in the cost of physical SIM supply and management.

This industry-specified remote provisioning service is now available, via our SM-DP+ service provider partners. Furthermore, they’re already providing the highly secure subscription management services necessary, to safely manage your customers’ eSIM profile activations.
