Overcoming Challenges with Embedded SIMs in IoT Devices

This episode of 'What to Expect When You're Connecting,' hosted by Ryan Carlson, features Titu Botush from Neuronic Works discussing the benefits of embedding SIM cards directly into IoT devices. The conversation covers the technical, manufacturing, and operational advantages of using embedded SIMs (eSIMs), such as improved environmental resistance, higher security, and reduced assembly errors. Challenges like the initial technological adoption barrier and the necessity for infrastructure to manage eSIMs are addressed. The discussion also explores the impact of eSIM technology on device form factor, certification ease, and the future predictions for integrated SIMs (iSIMs). Furthermore, it touches on the importance of carrier relationships for successful IoT deployments and the potential of eSIMs to facilitate easier, more flexible connectivity solutions for IoT devices.
