eSIM solution offers pre-integrated cellular IoT network coverage
Infineon Technologies AG has partnered with Tata Communications to offer its customers unparalleled global reach, leveraging the Tata Communications MOVE mobility and IoT platform.
By implementing eSIM, device manufacturers can deliver products capable of worldwide use, instead of having to deliver specific versions for particular markets. This results in economies of scale, cuts costs through simplified product management, and reduces time to market significantly.
Infineon’s solution is pre-integrated with a bootstrap Tata Communications MOVE eSIM profile, allowing manufacturers to capture, move and manage IoT data seamlessly, reliably and securely across the globe. Additionally, thanks to Tata Communications’ relationships with more than 640 mobile network operators (MNO) worldwide, manufacturers can overcome the complexities of managing potentially hundreds of local connectivity agreements with MNOs in different countries, and instead connect their devices with a single global connectivity agreement with Tata Communications.
The eSIM conforms to the Remote SIM Provision specification from the GSMA. Connecting a device or even a fleet of devices to the internet can be entirely managed remotely via an online portal. This remote activation and configuration of IoT devices over the air enables a more automated, secured approach to bringing large numbers of devices online. Furthermore, manufacturers can select connectivity providers after production, shipment and deployment of the device and change them throughout its lifecycle, increasing ease of use as well as flexibility regarding selecting MNOs and data plans.
At the core of the new eSIM solution is Infineon’s SLM97 security controller. It provides a high-performance and GSMA eSIM M2M V3.2 compliant operating system, as well as worldwide coverage of 2G, 3G, 4G, 5G, LTE-M and NB-IoT. The new Optiga Connect eSIM IoT is available in a VQFN-8 (MFF2) package and industrial quality grade.
