Part 1 – eSIM involving in Massive IoT 

11.00 – 11.20

Can eSIM be the Linchpin of Massive IoT?

Key network technologies are creating simpler, more accessible pathways to realizing the true potential of IoT. The ability to transform enterprise operations across a wide ecosystem of connected devices is the heart of Massive IoT. One of the next-generation connectivity technologies that might hold the key to accelerate this segment of IoT is eSIM. KORE discusses where this technology fits in opening the globe to extensive IoT enablement, and how to optimize a technology that is rapidly developing in a competitive market.

Panel Discussion:

eSIM in Action: How to accelerate and keep Massive IoT SAFE?

Adoption of eSIM heralds a new way to address how data from IoT is secured at source, in transit and integrated with zero-touch into big data insights. These are critical success factors for anyone addressing cost and reliability of scalable IoT. This relaxed “fireside chat” will spotlight case studies and learnings from pragmatic pathways available to adoption and acceleration of eSIM and how to make most of the security that comes with standards-based security schemes such as IoT SAFE. Further, a glance in what some leading-edge developments in key industrial markets and a chance to ask your questions!
