NTT DOCOMO announced Friday last week that it will offer Embedded Subscription Identity Module (eSIM), a new type of SIM that works on mobile networks of various international operators, for M2M devices.

A single eSIM is able to load subscriber identities issued by multiple mobile operators, simplifying manufacturing and inventory-management tasks over operator-specific SIMs for transnational M2M enterprises and solution providers.

  • The first of its kind being offered in Japan, the eSIM is able to register phone numbers and other subscription-identity data of DOCOMO and other international operators in machine-to-machine (M2M) devices, such as connected automobiles, industrial equipment and many more, said DOCOMO. The new eSIM will be available to business customers from June 30 2014.
