Overview According to GSMA Intelligence research , the total number of eSIM smartphones, tablets and smartwatches commercially available for purchase reached 127 in June 2022 – a fivefold increase on December 2018. Despite this, consumer awareness of eSIM technology remains low. The GSMA Intelligence Consumers in Focus Survey 2021 shows that less than 30% of consumers (on average across eight major countries analysed) are aware of eSIM – a clear barrier to adoption. This eSIM Summit during the Mobile World Congress in Shanghai will be focus on the promising eSIM technology in Asia. This eSIM Seminar will stream focused speeches and sessions to help you discover how eSIM is reaching its full potential and what a bright journey is still to come. In addition, we would share our thoughts around the future of eSIM in Asia. ································ Key Items - eSIM Market in Asia - GSMA eSIM Services - eSIM Opportunities for Operators - Global connectivity on a single eSIM - Real-world eSIM deployments - Reliable eSIM connectivity service. - The best eSIM experience ································ Agenda eSIM Summit Introduction Time: 10:00 eSIM Summit – Welcome Chris Li, Product Director, GSMA Time: 10:00 – 10:10 eSIM Market in Asia Pablo Iacopino, Head of Research and Commercial Content at GSMA Intelligence, GSMA Time: 10:10 – 10:20 GSMA eSIM Service Chris Li, Product Director, GSMA Part 1 – Gold Sponsors Time: 10:20 – 10:40 Empowering IoT: Made in Asia for Deployment Worldwide, Powered by eSIM The cellular IoT market is challenged by fragmentation in the following areas: device prototyping, manufacturing, shipment, ownership, and operation. Given the enormous growth of M2M devices in the market, cellular connectivity in IoT is predicted to be the next big wave of technological revolution. In addition, on-demand connectivity and interoperability will be essential for driving this industry ahead given the diverse range of applications that these devices encompass. This makes connectivity management incredibly tough. With connectivity orchestration and eSIM architecture (in compliance with the latest SGP.31 specification), it’s now possible to streamline the value chain. The keynote will address important issues in the global IoT deployment area as well as opportunities for OEMs and device owners as a result of eSIM technology. Speaker: Hui Jin, Ph.D, Founder & CEO, Redtea Mobile Time: 10:40 – 11:00 How to solve the interoperability challenges to tackle mobility for PoS devices in global markets with eSIMs In this session, we will be discussing how we have been helping OEMs and MNOs to tackle any obstacles they might face related to interoperability issues while adding secure connectivity into their eSIM-enabled devices beyond handsets and wearables, such as PoS, when deploying them globally. Join our expert Christian Fernandez, Product Marketing Manager, and John Zou ,Executive Vice President at TongxinMicro, in our joint pitch to get ready to deploy globally your eSIM-enabled devices.
