Global Roaming vs. eUICC: Is Global Roaming Still Relevant?

The IoT marketplace is buzzing about whether global roaming is losing relevance. Global roaming entails agreements between mobile network operators (MNOs). In addition, it enables a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) to use an MNO’s roaming agreement for a global IoT deployment.  

Meanwhile, the embedded Universal Integrated Circuit Card (eUICC) standard enables localization. It is future-proof and allows connectivity provisioning in several markets with one SIM as well as enhanced flexibility, redundancy, and optimization. Localization is accomplished via agreements signed with local MNOs in relevant markets. 

Some view eUICC as a competitor to global roaming. Both technologies have pros and cons. However, global roaming and eUICC can complement each other to enhance business models, challenging use cases and avoid roaming restrictions.  

Join us for a webinar about global roaming vs. eUICC technology. We will discuss the differences between them so that you can see how they work better together. 

Attendees will learn: 

  • The advantages and drawbacks of global roaming vs. eUICC 
  • Why and how global roaming will continue to be relevant in the future 
  • How global roaming and eUICC can work together
