STMicroelectronics has introduced the first embedded SIM (eSIM) in the industry to meet the incoming SGP.32 GSMA standard for eSIM IoT deployment.

The ST4SIM-300 introduces special features to manage the mass rollout of IoT devices connected to cellular networks.

Unlike existing eSIM, machine-to-machine (M2M) and eSIM Consumer specifications, the SGP.32 eSIM for IoT was created for the needs of today’s IoT deployments. The features in the ST4SIM-300 support greater automation of remote SIM provisioning (RSP), easily managing SIM profiles for large fleets of devices, and remote switching between network providers that eliminates physical SIM card swaps.

The eSIM conforms to the latest 5G standard and facilitates deploying devices that have a limited user interface and deploying low-power wide-area network (LPWAN) devices.

Tool boosts interoperability of eSIM, iSIM services

ST is sampling ST4SIM-300 eSIMs in various form factors, including wafer-level chip-scale packages (WLCSP) suitable for smart meters, GPS trackers, asset monitors, remote sensors, medical wearables, and similar devices.

“Leveraging the incoming GSMA specification, our embedded SIM for IoT solution, ST4SIM-300, enhances flexibility, eases network provider switching, and simplifies managing large numbers of connected devices,” said Agostino Vanore, Edge Authentication and M2M Cellular Marketing Manager at STMicroelectronics. “In a more connected and secured world, it will enable seamlessly track assets across the globe, connect smart devices to the cloud, and securely handle data from billions of devices, supporting our healthcare and smart infrastructures, cities, factories, and homes.”

The eSIM is built with an EAL6+ certified ST secure microcontroller and architected for security from the ground up. It is compatible with GSMA IoT SAFE applet to add secure element features for end-to-end communication and supports scalable security by design for creators of IoT devices.
