Abstract

This paper illustrates the different approaches to commercialize M2M eSIM networks. It will first highlight cellular telecommunication position in the IOT connectivity landscape and SIM evolution to the digital eSIM form, with basic information about architecture, interfaces, and operations; the paper illustrates the three main variances of M2M eSIM networks based on the ownership of the secure route element of the subscription manager: Operator controlled variance (in which the OEM outsources the secure route to a network operator), OEM controlled variance (in which the OEM acquires and operates the secure route), and M2M service provider controlled variance (in which the OEM outsources the secure route to a M2M service provider). Mobile telecommunication regulations and business conditions led to emergence of two approaches: lent eSIM and eSIM ownership transfer. Ecosystem players should consider available resources, limitations, advantages, and disadvantages of each variance before selecting the commercialization approach. The complex mesh network and long list of standardized and non-standardized interfaces among ecosystem building blocks present a challenge to M2M eSIM technology adoption. The idea of having independent hub entities to interconnect subscription manager platforms and connectivity managers from the different players in the globe presents future research, standardization, and business opportunity that can address M2M eSIM network complexity and time-to-market.
