This eSIM IoT standard combines the best of two IoT worlds:  

  • The simplicity of the consumer approach (e.g., wearables) 
  • The large-scale machine-to-machine (M2M) approach (e.g., fleet management) 

The SGP.32 specification provides the basis for global interoperability for IoT deployments.  

The Benefits of GSMA SGP.32 for IoT Vendors

The GSMA SGP.32 creates opportunities for IoT vendors to optimize their services, including: 

  • Optimized stock-keeping unit (SKU) management 
  • Better connectivity resilience and coverage 
  • Fewer on-site maintenance trips 
  • Long-term business continuity and cost-efficiency 

IoT stakeholders can leverage this standard to navigate constrained devices and streamline operations easily. 

One key advantage of adopting GSMA SGP.32 is how it complements managed connectivity offerings. When combined with multi-IMSI approaches, it offers enhanced flexibility and adaptability to the IoT ecosystem. This standard can also be a stand-alone tool to simplify IoT device life cycles, from manufacturing to installation.
