How Entitlement Server Revolutionises eSIM Migration

With the rise of eSIM-only smartphones, transferring personal data and SIM cards becomes effortless. NetLync's EaaS exemplified by Apple's eSIM Quick Transfer, seamlessly manages authentication, profile delivery, and SIM swaps, simplifying the process to just a few clicks, almost magically.


As the landscape of mobile technology continues to evolve, the integration of Entitlements and eSIM technologies emerges as a pivotal gateway to seamless connectivity. In this article, we delve into the symbiotic relationship between these two innovations and how they are reshaping the landscape of device migration and data transfer.

Consider the common scenario of upgrading your mobile device today. Traditionally, transferring personal data such as photos, videos, and applications from one device to another, along with a physical SIM card, involves a cumbersome process. From locating specialised tools to resorting to makeshift solutions like a paperclip, the transition is often riddled with complexities.

However, with the escalating adoption of eSIM technology, exemplified by the emergence of eSIM-only smartphones in the market, the traditional SIM card is gradually becoming obsolete. This prompts a pertinent question: How does one seamlessly transfer an eSIM stored in the current device to a new one?

While carriers may offer guides involving QR code scanning and authentication via SMS codes, device OEMs have pioneered a more streamlined solution leveraging Entitlements technology.

Take, for instance, Apple's eSIM Quick Transfer feature on the iPhone. By simply bringing two iPhones together and following on-device instructions, users can seamlessly transfer their eSIM profiles. This process, facilitated by Entitlement Server, orchestrates authentication, profile delivery, and SIM swap operations effortlessly. From the user's perspective, it's akin to magic – a few clicks result in the transfer of eSIM, alongside all other personal data.

Furthermore, in instances requiring additional steps such as signing terms and conditions or carrying out KYC procedures, Entitlement Server seamlessly interacts with users, ensuring a hassle-free experience.
