eSIM’s silent revolution on track with 3.4 billion users by 2025, report finds

Inside Telecom

Inside Telecom

The number of eSIMs installed in connected devices globally will increase from 1.2 billion to 3.4 billion in 2025, representing a growth of 180 percent.

LONDON, ENGLAND, UNITED KINGDOM, April 19, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The number of eSIMs installed in connected devices globally will increase from 1.2 billion to 3.4 billion in 2025, representing a growth of 180 percent, mainly driven by adoption from tech powerhouses such as Apple and Google, reported a new study by UK-based market research company Juniper Research.

According to the forecast, independently assessed eSIM adoption and demand in the consumer sector, industrial sector, and public sector predict that the consumer sector will account for 94 percent of global eSIM installations by 2025.

The report anticipates established adoption of eSIM frameworks from consumer device vendors, such as Apple and Google, will accelerate growth of eSIMs in consumer devices ahead of the industrial and public sectors.

“[The forecast] anticipates that established adoption of eSIM frameworks from consumer device vendors, such as Apple and Google, will accelerate the growth of eSIMs in consumer devices ahead of the industrial and public sectors,” Juniper Research said.
According to the report, Global eSIM deployments across all consumer verticals will increase by 170 percent over the next four years, with widespread adoption reliant on backing from network operators.

“Juniper Research urges manufacturers to place pressure on operators to support eSIM frameworks and accelerate market maturation,” the study stressed.

However, according to Farouk Tabbal, eSIM product manager at Monty Mobile, a leading VAS & telecom solutions provider, and an international SMS wholesale intermediary hub, in order for eSIM technology to boom, three main entities should work together, starting with OEMs.

OEMs, DP+ providers have been long adopters of eSIM technology, and consistently calling for telecom providers to make the switch from physical to eSIM,” Tabbal told Inside Telecom, highlighting that OEMs (original equipment manufacturer) launched many devices that are eSIM supported yet kept the physical slot to leave end users to make the choice themselves.

But there’s also another issue.

“Operators are still stuck to their traditional business models of relying on physical SIMs, since the change would translate into an impact on both their frontend and backend network infrastructures, which would require resources and time for the switch to happen,” Tabbal explained.

From a commercial perspective, telcos are still hesitant to make the switch to the technology since the cost of setting eSIM profiles is relatively similar to the actual physical card, in addition, “telcos have fears over increased churn which in my opinion it is an unjustified fear.”

This paves the way for the third player to step in, remote SIM provisionary providers, such as Monty Mobile, who are looking to provide operators with eSIM services in the form of Software-as-a-service (SaaS) for a yearly fee.

“It is these businesses that will surely help telcos to push for the rise of eSIMs at a much more cohesive rate,” Tabbal told Inside Telecom. He later highlighted that there are almost 200 out 1,000 operators around the world who have fully integrated the technology within their offerings, which is considered a very low number.

“At the end of the day, this is a technological advancement which will inevitably grow at a rapid rate, thus, forcing telcos to either move now and become an early beneficiary of their foresight or later and play catch-up,” he noted.
“This technology is having a silent revolution and quickly, yet subtly creating momentum,” Tabbal added.

Tabbal explained that telcos need to consider that eSIMS completely removes the logistical costs of manufacturing physical SIMS, which would later allow operators a sea of profitable possibilities to use this technology for.

Juniper highlighted, however, that fragmentation of hardware vendors in the cellular Internet of Things (IoT) device market will necessitate each vertical to adopt a combination of wireless technologies, hardware, and management tools. “In turn, specialist vendors will emerge that provide robust eSIM form factors for industrial environments,” the research firm added.

Three key areas of focus for eSIM adoption in the industrial sector will arise: oil and gas, manufacturing, and logistics. “The development of rugged form factors will position vendors well to capitalize on the market, as eSIM installations in these verticals grows from 28 million units in 2021, to 116 million by 2025,” the report said.

From a telco perspective, Tabbal considers that provider should be the main players spearheading IoT and M2M efforts since they have the potential to unlock various revenue streams across the board.

“Think of it this way, faster network connection, more IoT and M2M integration, more data being used to run everything smoothly, which would subsequently translate into more revenue to providers; however, this definitely requires carriers to beef up their network infrastructure,” he highlighted.

Ultimately, ensuring convenience for the end user must remain the top priority for eSIM management platform providers. To do so, platform providers must provide a level of service comparable to that found with traditional SIM deployments.

Several operators have taken note of this and have already started to change their business strategies to meet the ongoing tide of eSIMs, especially within the IoT space. Earlier last week, Norwegian telecoms provider Telenor Group announced that it will be unifying its IoT services across the Nordic region and internationally, placing them under one large portfolio.

“Effective immediately, Telenor IoT will be offered from all Telenor business channels in the Nordics, and internationally by Telenor Connexion and through selected partners,” the provider said in a statement.

As a part of introducing Telenor IoT, a new operating model is being launched to leverage on Telenor’s global competency, synchronize product development, accelerate the customer facing business and improve technical support.

International airlines can now meet carbon neutral growth targets with ICAO’s CORSIA-approved Global Carbon Council

Dr. Yousef Alhorr, President of Global Carbon Council.

Dr. Yousef Alhorr, President of Global Carbon Council, says, “Sustainable development and do-no-harm to society and environment are the core principles of GCC in issuing CORSIA-eligible carbon credits.”

Global Carbon Council has been added to the list of programs fully approved under CORSIA to supply carbon credits and help airlines meet carbon neutral growth.

CORSIA’s approval demonstrates that within short time since its launch, Global Carbon Council has been able to reach the mark of quality and environmental integrity.”

— Dr. Yousef Alhorr, President of Global Carbon Council

DOHA, QATAR, April 18, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — International aviation industry now has increased platforms to offset their unavoidable carbon emissions as Global Carbon Council (GCC) has been added to the list of programs fully approved under UN’s ICAO initiative “CORSIA” to supply carbon credits and help airlines meet their carbon neutral growth. With GCC approved, there are now eight international programs eligible to facilitate the aviation industry in meeting their carbon neutral growth targets.
Qatar-headquartered Global Carbon Council (GCC) has been recognized and approved by Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA) of United Nation’s International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) to supply carbon credits to international airlines to meet their carbon neutral growth. By issuing carbon credits, carbon markets like GCC are assisting international organizations to offset unavoidable carbon emissions while also supporting the development of emission reduction projects and catalyzing climate actions. GCC – an initiative of Gulf Organisation for Research & Development (GORD) – is the first and only global voluntary GHG Offsetting Program of MENA region. Established in 2016 and operational since 2019, GCC has now received full approval under CORSIA of United Nation’s ICAO on 19 March 2021.
This approval is the recognition that GCC’s regulatory framework has all elements in place that assure real, additional and permanent emission reductions resulting from the projects registered by it and the Approved Carbon Credits (ACCs) issued by GCC are indeed highly credible and environmentally integral. It also assures that ACCs can be safely used by international airlines to meet their commitment of carbon neutral growth under CORSIA and by other organizations to meet their commitment for carbon neutrality of their products, services, events and activities. With full approval, GCC is listed among eight international programs that are eligible to supply carbon credits to international airlines to meet their carbon neutral growth. It is important to note that GCC, based in Qatar, is one of the two CORSIA-eligible international GHG programs that are headquartered in developing countries.
Speaking about this recent development, Dr. Yousef Alhorr, President of GCC, said, “Global Carbon Council, originated from MENA region, aims to provide carbon market instrument to serve global stakeholders in meeting their commitment for the zero-carbon world. Sustainable development and do-no-harm to society and environment are the core principles of GCC in issuing CORSIA-eligible carbon credits, with equal focus on avoidance of any overlap with national mitigation efforts to meet Paris agreement targets. CORSIA’s approval demonstrates that within short time since its launch, GCC has been able to reach the mark of quality and environmental integrity expected from offsets to aid the efforts of carbon neutrality around the world.”
GCC Program not only recognizes the projects for their contribution to mitigate climate change through the issuance of carbon credits, but also provides labels for their contribution to sustainable development goals and no harm to society and environment.
GCC Program has a complete regulatory framework in place and has already received submission of several GHG reduction projects from Turkey, India and Jamaica, which, if registered, will be collectively capable of reducing 28 million tons of CO2 in 10 years. There are several projects considering submission from several other countries including Qatar, Oman, Serbia and Pakistan, etc. Interest has been expressed by project developers from Saudi Arabia, UAE, Egypt, Jordan, Spain, China, Belgium, Canada and USA, etc. Several corporates and airlines are eying upon GCC projects to procure carbon credits from, to achieve their carbon neutrality goals. Carbon credits issued by GCC Program will be used for carbon neutrality of FIFA World Cup 2022. These credits will come from Qatari as well as international projects submitted to GCC. GCC expects to issue more than 10 Million carbon credits in 2021.
It is important to note that in the spirit of contributing to the cause of accurate global accounting of emission reductions and avoidance of double counting and double claiming of emission reductions, GCC has taken part in the implementation of World Bank’s Climate Warehouse and IHS Markit’s Meta Carbon Registry. GCC is also on the Advisory Board of IHS Markit’s Meta Carbon Registry that is under development. World Bank and IHS Markit are developing meta carbon registries to be able to keep accurate accounting of emission reductions due to implementation of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) by countries including the use of carbon market instruments, whether voluntary or compliance based.

COVID-19 vaccines boost consumer confidence across the board, IBM study finds

IBM’s consumer survey adds to the growing amount of data showing optimism as the world slowly emerges from the pandemic.

LONDON, ENGLAND, UNITED KINGDOM, April 16, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — IBM’s consumer survey released Thursday adds to the growing amount of data showing optimism as the world slowly emerges from the pandemic. The study shows that global consumer confidence is high, “with more than half of respondents surveyed saying that they expect COVID-19 vaccines to keep them protected,” the company said.

According to IBM’s study findings prepared by the company’s Institute for Business Value (IBV), respondents surveyed are mostly assured in the safety, effectiveness, and distribution of the COVID-19 vaccines and indicate a desire to return to ‘normalcy’ after being vaccinated.

But different quarantine and masking rules, personal preferences, and social norms formed during the last year means that key industries like retail, travel and transportation may need to provide more seamless, personalized marketing and client experiences, to help remain competitive and successfully engage customers, the company noted.

“Habits formed during the COVID-19 pandemic have raised consumers’ expectations of digital engagement, especially in service industries like retail, travel & transportation,” said Jesus Mantas, senior managing partner, IBM Global Business Services.

“As we anticipate the ‘post-COVID-19 pandemic normal,’ businesses should accelerate their digital evolution with AI and Cloud-based solutions to help remain competitive. Investing in hybrid physical and digital experiences can help provide a more personalized experience.”

The study of more than 15,000 adults surveyed globally, found most people are confident in the safety, effectiveness, and distribution of COVID-19 vaccines, and more than half expect the vaccine to keep them protected.

Economic progress can happen gradually, however, as most respondents surveyed indicated that vaccination levels will need to exceed 70 percent for them to feel comfortable returning to life as it was before the pandemic, the study cautioned.

If current vaccine rollout rates continue – which have been highly flawed in some regions – the study purports that most people may not regain pre-pandemic comfort levels until well into 2022. Amidst this uncertainty, consumers are rethinking the way they want to work, socialize, travel, and shop, according to the study.

Most global consumers surveyed are ready to return to in-store shopping once vaccinated
According to the study, the tides may be turning for the ailing retail industry, with global consumers surveyed indicating a strong desire, once they are vaccinated, to return to malls and shopping centers.

While many surveyed consumers may not abandon the online shopping options, they have become accustomed to using during the COVID-19 pandemic – with at least one in five respondents surveyed stating that they plan to continue shopping primarily online – once vaccinated, they expect to buy items in-store much more often.

With convenience indicated as the main reason global consumers surveyed continue to shop online, followed by value and the wide variety of products available online, to lure consumers back to physical stores, retailers can look to in-store promotions and local products.

In-store promotions were the top factor that could drive consumers to shop in a physical store, especially for Gen X (54 percent surveyed) and Boomers (52 percent surveyed). Additionally, local products that are not available online, such as small batch food products and hand-made apparel, may attract nearly 50 percent of surveyed Millennials, Gen X and Boomers, to shop in person.

Potential Recovery of the Travel Industry
While consumer travel has yet to rebound, there are promising signs on the horizon.

The study showed plane travel may see an uptick in demand, with 30 percent of people planning to fly more often—though this is offset by the 23 percent of respondents surveyed that plan to fly less.

The study found that roughly 1.5 times more vaccinated consumers surveyed expect to take an overnight trip in the next six months. Still, a sizeable subset of the population plans to stay home indefinitely, with roughly one in four surveyed consumers saying that they do not plan to travel in 2021, even after they receive the COVID-19 vaccines.

The vaccine may also reinvigorate professional travel, increasing the number of respondents comfortable travelling for business two to four times in most countries.

However, older business travelers surveyed are less confident.

Only eight percent of respondents surveyed over 55 are comfortable traveling for business without a COVID-19 vaccine, and just 25 percent are comfortable after they are vaccinated.

The study showed personal automobile usage continues its prominence, both during the pandemic period and after people receive the vaccination. While 10 percent of respondents surveyed plan to use a personal vehicle less often after getting the shot, 47 percent surveyed say they will use it more.

Generation Z respondents surveyed are exceptions to the findings
Post-COVID-19 vaccine outlook varies widely across surveyed consumers by generation, but in several categories, Generation Z respondents surveyed (people aged 18-24), especially hard hit by the COVID-19 pandemic, tended to be outliers.

Most Gen Z respondents surveyed want to spend time with people outside of their households once they get the shot. 27 percent of Gen Z surveyed said they will increase outside interaction, compared to 19 percent of Gen X surveyed and only 16 percent of those surveyed over 55 years of age.

On average, 60 percent of Gen Z respondents surveyed plan to visit venues such as restaurants and bars and salons once vaccinated, compared with 71 percent of Millennials surveyed and 69 percent of Gen X respondents surveyed.

This appears to be the continuation of a trend, as Gen Z surveyed also reported visiting venues less frequently than those in other age groups during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Risk of Skipping Model Calibration White Paper is available for download. With the Initial deployment of 5G networks at mmWave bands showed promising indications in some aspects while experienced coverage gaps and dead spots in some scenarios. This is not something than can be adequately predicted nor quantified without the aid of real field testing to tune coverage simulations to each venue specifics or different morphologies. Else, this will lead eventually to either extra infrastructure cost or bad user experience -vs. the 5G promise-.

Model calibration has been the safety net of coverage simulation, and hence a standard function in any reliable indoor or outdoor planning software. However, in mmWave case it is becoming a more critical step in order to achieve reliable coverage and decent KPI’s. Propagation studies of sub-6 GHz bands are quite mature however, less knowledge has been obtained yet regarding mmWave propagation particularly inside buildings. So, this article sheds light and analyzes case studies that depict the technical & business impact of skipping this step.

MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE, UNITED STATES, April 15, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — All In Compliance has announced the rollout of the very first Compliance Certification Program for consumer reporting agencies to include Background Screeners.

The screening industry is highly regulated and continues to remain on the radar of regulators, and litigators. FCRA lawsuits surrounding background screening issues have increased each year for the last ten years and compliance is at the center of helping CRAs avoid lawsuits and achieve success in today's marketplace. Every CRA has a story of its commitment to compliance and this brand-new certification offers this market a unique way to demonstrate that commitment. This program is quickly becoming a must have for all background screening firms.

The program utilizes a fully innovative Learner Management System (LMS) that features a self-paced, interactive way for CRA compliance personnel and management to earn a Compliance Certification.

“This type of consistent compliance training is a great way to demonstrate that as an industry, background screeners appreciate their responsibilities to consumers, to integrity, to maximum accuracy and to safeguarding data,” says Jackie Drziak, EVP of All In Compliance, and founder of the program.
The program is comprised of 13 interactive modules with intermittent quizzes designed to measure student progress. Among the modules included are regulatory responsibilities, consumer complaint management, information security, consumer disputes, auditing and more.

Upon conclusion of the course, students are directed to a comprehensive assessment to test their knowledge and are presented with a certification subject to an 80% passing grade. CRAs may choose to pursue certifications for individual employees, or an enterprise compliance certification, which can be obtained through course completion by all compliance and management staff.

Obtaining the highly coveted PBSA Accreditation requires a strong commitment to compliance, and this program serves as a great training resource for CRAs who are focused on achieving this accreditation. “It’s more important than ever for CRAs to prove compliance with industry requirements, regulations, and data safeguarding. The goal of the Compliance Certification Program is to provide them the tools to master these critical functions.” says Drziak.

The Compliance Certification is available now, and organizations can enroll at academyaic.com.
