Ericsson enables eSIM activation for smartphones


Ericsson is introducing an entitlement server solution for on-device eSIM subscription activation without QR-codes for smartphones, enabling consumers to remotely activate and manage their eSIM-enabled smartphone.

Claiming an “industry first”, Ericsson says its solution enables consumers to remotely activate and manage their smartphone with “just a few clicks” has introduced its solution first up with Samsung Galaxy S20 and Galaxy Z Flip smartphones.

“Together with the Ericsson eSIM solution, launched in January 2020, service providers can enhance their customers’ digital experience through fully automated eSIM subscription management,” says Ericsson.

Ericsson’s eSIM solution is comprised of the Ericsson Secure Entitlement Server and the Ericsson eSIM manager (SM-DP+ server, Subscription Management Data Provisioning).

The Ericsson Secure Entitlement Server enables on-device eSIM subscription activation for smartphones without using QR codes while the Ericsson eSIM Manager, provides fully automated device and subscription orchestration - with the solution interoperable with smartphones and other devices.

Ericsson says it is in the process of deploying the solution with several service providers.

“Together with Samsung, we are introducing a unique and easy on-device subscription activation solution for smartphones,” said Monica Zethzon, Head of Solution Area Communication Services at Ericsson.

“This industry first, based on the Ericsson Secure Entitlement Server and Ericsson eSIM manager, is verified with Samsung Galaxy S20 and Galaxy Z Flip. This brings a superior digital experience for consumers and new business opportunities and operational cost savings for our customers.”

According to Zethzon, a major shift is taking place in the telecommunications industry, as physical SIM cards are being replaced by embedded SIMs (eSIMs) in mobile devices.

“With eSIM, consumers will be able to manage new subscriptions – or transfer existing ones – to eSIM-enabled devices in seconds, without having to visit a retail store. It’s predicted that the number of eSIM devices will increase rapidly, reaching billions of users in the next few years.”

Zethzon cites a recent report from Ericsson ConsumerLab which shows strong consumer demand for eSIM services, with 94% of respondents willing to pay extra to connect more devices to their current subscription plan, and 86% hoping for “try and buy” offerings.
