The new Optiga Connect eSIM IoT solution from Infineon is based on the chipmaker‘s in-house security hardware and enables network access in more than 200 countries and territories - it is pre-integrated and operator-independent. This is made possible by the cooperation with Tata Communications. Infineon is using Tata's MOVE mobility and IoT platform to offer its customers the highest global reach.
According to ABI Research, the number of eSIM deliveries for networked machine-to-machine applications is growing at an average annual rate of 18 percent, from 101 million units in 2019 to 232 million in 2024. Application areas include the localization of goods in logistics, energy management and mobile healthcare applications.
With the solution presented, IoT devices can be easily connected and managed on a large scale to mobile networks. Device manufacturers no longer have to provide different variants for special markets - thanks to the eSIM, their products can be used worldwide ex works. This enables economies of scale, reduces costs through simplified product management and significantly shortens time-to-market.
