With all set to begin from February 25, both enterprises and mobile phone fans are expecting MWC 2019 to bring latest innovations and trends in the mobile world. For technology like eSIM, 2018 was a pivotal moment. An eSIM functions like a normal Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) but it gets built into phone itself. It’s a small chip that’s used to authenticate identity of user with carrier.

With Apple using in the iPhone X, and a growing number of mobile operators across the globe supporting the technology, it’s only a matter of time before eSIM-only becomes the standard in devices, says expert.

“At MWC this year, we can expect to see discussions focused on how operators can offer eSIM technology to the enterprise. For example, eSIM technology can be used by enterprises that use machine-to-machine technology,” said , Division President, Caribbean and Latin America, Amdocs.

“eSIM enables remote provisioning, so a company would not need to install a physical SIM card into each piece of hardware, which can be a painstaking task. This can make areas like public utility (like water and gas meters) much easier to manage and gives communication providers a new revenue opportunity by providing the connectivity,” said Zepeda.

“By working closely with device manufacturers, communication providers can guarantee that they are creating a smooth onboarding process for eSIM technology in the enterprise. Mobile World Congress will be a hot bed of discussions about how eSIM can be used across a broad range of vertical sectors,” Zepeda said.
