The SORACOM eSIM provides all of the capability of the standard SORACOM Air SIM, mounted on an IC chip compliant with the MFF2 standard. Thanks to its greatly reduced size and permanent location on the circuit board, the eSIM supports a wide variety of compact form factors, streamlines manufacturing and distribution processes, and improves reliability and durability thanks to enhanced resistance to environmental factors such as vibration and temperature fluctuation. These advantages make the eSIM ideal for a wide range of applications, from consumer products to automotive and industrial use.

Working with new APIs for device state management and subscriber authentication, Soracom’s independent subscriber management and authentication infrastructure (HLR) provides a wide range of options for remote device management, including delivery of SMS between devices and servers and placement in STANDBY state to minimize costs when devices are in transit or storage.

The Soracom eSIM chip measures 5x6mm and offers advanced heat, moisture, and vibration resistance, with tolerances of -40°C to +125°C in storage and -40°C to +105°C in operation, a memory cycle of 500K at 105°C, and data retention of 15 years at 85°C.

SORACOM will continue to develop new services and expand existing functions to provide IOT developers with the greatest possible range of options to support creation and deployment of new IoT solutions. Soracom is committed to creating a more connected world, and will contribute to the development of the IoT industry through the SORACOM platform.

Endorsement from our customer

“ADXNET has extensive experience delivering products across global markets, but when we were ready to release our latest smartwatch we found it challenging to negotiate separate operator agreements and verify successful operation in every region. The industrial-grade SORACOM Global eSIM lets us connect to networks across multiple regions at a reasonable cost, with a single operator agreement and a single device-side configuration. The features and timing of SORACOM’s eSIM solution worked perfectly for our worldwide smartwatch release, and we look forward to a successful partnership.”
