Internet of Things providers who offer a thing and a thing service will often deploy their globally delivered or traveling smart devices with a standard or “roaming-only” global SIM capability. With a roaming-only global SIM, data must originate and terminate from the network of the “home” mobile network operator. This can result in significant device data delay or a poor user experience. With the next generation SIM capability, the GSMA standards based eUICC or “eSIM”, the credentials of a mobile network operator in the country or region, is remotely programmed on the smart device. The eSIM allows for data access in the local area providing for a lower latency and therefore improved user experience.
