How to manage eSIM Profiles for IoT & M2M Devices

 

The SM-DP prepares and manages all M2M eSIM profiles of the MNO. The remote provisioning of the encrypted profile is performed through a secure tunnel between SM-SR and eSIM.

The SM-SR is used by the IoT Service Provider to manage the connectivity lifecycle of its fleet of eSIM capable M2M devices (profile activation, deactivation, deletion).
