IoT solutions have always been constrained by the limitations of physical SIM cards.

That’s all changing as SIM technology comes of age.

IoT innovation unbound

Embedded SIM (eSIM) technology is a game-changer for IoT. It simplifies the manufacture, deployment and in-life management of IoT devices and solutions. And it opens up new ways to enable IoT connectivity. Why? Because you no longer need to install traditional SIMs in IoT devices. 

eSIMs are a step-change in IoT connectivity because they physically integrate UICC functionality into devices during the manufacturing process. By breaking the decades-old practice of embedding mobile subscriptions onto the SIM card, eSIM lets you securely deliver O2 SIM profiles even after your devices have shipped. 

With industry adoption of the GSMA Embedded SIM and Remote SIM Provisioning specifications, you can benefit from eSIM as a fully viable commercial proposition. So you and your customers will now be free to choose any eSIM-capable device, confident it will operate regardless of provider. 

Talk to us about the potential of eSIM. We’ll help you explore fast, hassle-free ways to take advantage of future-proof eSIM technology – either on its own or as part of your complete O2 IoT service.

Explore the new IoT use cases

 Looking for some inspiration on what eSIM could make possible in your own organisation?


The first eSIMs were deployed in business to business markets like automotive healthcare, transport and utilities. They helped these businesses to streamline manufacturing and simplify management. eSIMs mean there’s no need to physically insert SIMs into IoT devices – a big plus when you’re shipping and deploying connected devices in lots of regional markets.


New eSIM applications are focusing on the consumer companion market. Devices with small form factors, like smart watches and other wearables, are increasingly incorporating eSIMs as a core feature.
