Over the last twelve months there has been a substantial increase in focus from MNOs on embedded SIM and the associated issue of remote provisioning. This Research Note examines the main drivers for eUICC/IMSI swapping, and some of the strategies of MNOs towards this subject. A subsequent Research Note “Use of remote provisioning in M2M will focus on late binding of long life-span high bandwidth applications” (September 2013) further examines the use of IMSI swapping and the impact on different M2M applications.
