Today we're pleased to announce the second version of the eSIM management tool. It's probably the most important element for easy management of global IoT deployments.
When we started the redesign of eSIM management, we'd 3 main goals:
- give a better overview of eSIMs and telecom profiles;
- extend the functionality of the comparison tool to find the most suitable telecom profile faster;
- simplify the eSIM transaction flow and the number of successful deployments.
Let's look at the upgrades step by step.
Overview of eSIMs
We've improved the eSIM overview table to provide a better overview of your eSIM deployments. The overview cards are now even more informative. They serve as a quick filter to show only eSIMs with activated telecom profiles.
Previously, the table was fixed with columns and information. We've added a feature that allows you to change the preferences of the columns. So you can see exactly what you need for your work, similar to the SIM view table.
If you hover the number of telecom profiles in the overview table, you can see which profiles are available on the eSIM card.
The eSIM comparison table will help you find the most suitable telecom profile for your SIMs. We've made some improvements to help you find the right profile faster. First, for each telecom profile there's now a longer description of the benefits and the most suitable use case. Secondly, each profile now has soft aspects for comparison to better understand the shortcomings or opportunities of each telecom profile, in addition to comparing the price of data or SMS.
After finding a suitable telecom profile, it's time to complete the eSIM transaction. The main updates have been in the background, meaning we've introduced more guardrails for a successful transaction and are able to catch errors before they occur.
One new update is that you can move eSIMs with a new profile into an existing data package, rather than having to create a new one for each transaction.
