eSIM Activation & Provisioning

The process of activating an eSIM can touch many back-end systems for mobile operators, creating hurdles and roadblocks along the way. Ensure a seamless eSIM activation experience with remote SIM provisioning flows and activation across connected platforms.

Remote SIM provisioning flows

Remote SIM provisioning is the essence of eSIM technology, enabling subscribers to connect their devices to a network immediately and remotely. Ensure your provisioning processes are reliable and seamless.

eSIM Orchestration

Coordinate eSIM activation and provisioning processes across back-end systems including multiple SM-DP+ vendors, BSS/OSS platforms, Device Entitlement Servers, and more.

Choose our zero integration path to launch eSIM in a matter of weeks (no, really!), or full integration for real-time profile ordering and fulfillment.


What is eSIM orchestration

In technology, the term Orchestration refers to the coordination of processes across a number of different systems. eSIM Orchestration refers to the coordination of activation and provisioning of an eSIM Profile across numerous different systems that may belong to the mobile operator, the SM-DP+ vendor, BSS/OSS vendor, MDM (Mobile Device Management) vendor, and more. eSIM Orchestration ensure a seamless and error-free activation process for all customers.

Why is provisioning eSIM different from regular SIM?

Although there are similarities in the way SIM and eSIM function - that is identifying and connecting a device to a cellular network - the provisioning processes are not the same. To start, eSIM brings with it a new unique identifier called an eID. Operators' back-end provisioning systems may not be configured to accept this new parameter. Likewise, some new components unique to the eSIM architecture (such as the SM-DP+ or Subscription Manager) may need to be integrated and factored into the process. For these reasons and more, provisioning an eSIM can be quite different from physical SIM.

Is full integration required for remote SIM provisioning?

Not necessarily. It is possible to launch support for eSIM using a zero integation model. In other words, by using QR codes as the primary activation method and batch loading eSIM Profiles onto the SM-DP+ (or Subscription Manager), operators are able to launch eSIM support in less than 8 weeks. More integration is required to support other activation methods or to do dynamic configuration of eSIM Profiles. Consult with our solution experts to find out what level of integration is needed for your project.

How quickly can you launch eSIM for my subscribers?

Project timelines can vary greatly depending on many different factors, but we are able to launch eSIM support for our clients under 8 weeks. This assumes zero integration with back-end systems and using only the QR code activation method for eSIM devices. To get a more precise timeline for your project, contact us today.
