Forget physical sim cards, eSIM looks set to transform the way the world connects to mobile networks. Since 2011, Sim Local has made it its mission to keep people connected, seamlessly, wherever they are. I learn more about their mission and how eSIM will transform the way the world connects to a mobile network.
Mobile connectivity has long relied on physical SIM cards. However, as eSIM technology revolutionizes mobile, the need for physical SIM cards is declining rapidly and digitally disrupting traditional notions of phone usage. eSIM brings wide-ranging benefits to consumers, enterprises, and IoT solutions.
Mobile phone users can switch carriers instantly connecting their devices digitally without physically locating and changing the SIM in their device when traveling or on home soil. It has also enabled new smaller device categories, such as smart-watches and fitness trackers. It is opening up avenues of universal connectivity for laptops, raising the bar on IoT’s potential.
So what’s the barrier for consumer and operator adoption? Gary Waite, Head of eSIM Strategy, discusses everything eSIM, from what it is, the technology behind it to the benefits for both consumers and mobile operators alike and its expected rise in the coming years.
Gary has 30 years’ experience across the telecommunications and mobile sector and has been key to the success of SIM technology ever since its inception. He has worked for companies including Telefonica and is considered a world expert on eSIM, NFC, Mobile Wallet and M2M/IoT.
