Microsoft has partnered with IDEMIA to bring eSIM technology to Windows 10 Enterprise devices. IDEMIA has agreed to work with Microsoft to utilize the eSIM Orchestration Hub as a means of simplifying the integration with each MNO network.
IDEMIA has been the first supplier to make possible eSIM integration in Microsoft devices, and we are now extremely pleased to keep partnering with Microsoft to bring eSIM support to Windows 10 Enterprise devices. Our eSIM Orchestration Hub was purpose-built to handle any eSIM provisioning task and quickly integrate with MNO networks. This partnership will help scale the growth of eSIM devices in the Enterprise domain, providing significant value to operators.
– Emir Aboulhosn, VP Digital Domains Connectivity and IoT Security, IDEMIA
The use of eSIMs has increased in the last couple of years and ABI Research predicted that eSIM-enabled device shipments will grow from 224 million in 2018 to nearly 700 million in 2022. With the help of IDEMIA, Microsoft plans to make MNO switch easier for its enterprise customers.
IDEMIA’s eSIM Orchestration Hub is an excellent solution for MNOs looking to support Windows Enterprise eSIM devices without having to undergo significant upgrades to their network. That’s why we partnered with the IDEMIA team to enable faster and easier adoption of eSIM technology in Enterprises worldwide.
– David Lemson, Director of Program Management for Windows IoT and Networking, Microsoft
None of the companies commented on when the technology will be available but this does open doors for future Windows 10 devices with eSIM option.
