What is an eSIM card?
The latest version of all SIM card types. Expressed, eSIM means "embedded SIM". It is the most innovative of all SIM card solutions. An e-Sim is permanently built into an end device such as a mobile phone, tablet or smartwatch. This has the advantage that the card itself does not have to be replaced. This brings considerable advantages, especially when concluding a mobile phone contract. All the necessary information is stored on the eSIM. The data is updated, for example, when a provider or tariff is changed.

esim and standard SIM: the differences
The main difference is that the eSIM is already integrated in the fixed device. It can neither be removed nor exchanged. As the name suggests, the e in front of SIM stands for "embedded", which in German means integrated. Functionally, the eSIM has the same capabilities as the common one. This has the advantage that they are compatible with each other and the difference is not noticeable in use. Therefore, the question arises, why should one choose an eSim at all?

What is a convenient advantage for standard mobile phone contracts or devices is mandatory for IoT devices. With industrial plants, household appliances or motor vehicles, it is difficult to simply remove the SIM card. So the eSIM not only enables automated processes without anyone having to be on site, but is also a compelling step into the future.
It is not for nothing that the eSIM for IoT is already widespread and the market is growing steadily. More and more devices are using a connection via the internet - IoT and M2M are becoming more and more prevalent in our everyday lives.

Why an eSIM?
Technology continues to develop, but changes do not always seem pleasant. In this case, however, it is the other way round - the eSIM makes many things easier. Here we explain the advantages of using an eSIM card, or whether you are already using one and don't know it.
The most important advantage is that the SIM card can be "programmed" by the provider. So if you have contractual changes made, it is possible that the provider simply activates the device with eSIM and waiting for the new card becomes unnecessary. In this way, the activation of new devices is much quicker and the user has no extra work.
But the advantage is not only one-sided! The manufacturer also benefits from eSIMs. Due to the fixed integration in the device, errors are minimised and installation errors are almost completely excluded.
The trend is towards eSIM. Current devices such as the new IPhone from Apple or the leading series from Samsung, from Samsung GalaxyS20 onwards, already work only with an integrated eSIM. Google has also joined this trend.
But not only smartphones, but also more and more wearables such as smartwatches operate with the eSIM. Oppo, Xiamoi and Huawei have not let themselves be left behind by the market giants Apple and Google.
