What is an eSIM Card?

You might have heard about eSIM card recently but you don’t know what this technology means?  Let us find out and explain this technology.

What is an eSIM card?

eSIM card as its name suggests is an Embedded SIM card. eSIM card is directly embedded on the phone chip instead of adding it as a separate removable component to the phone. To make you more clear, the user should not go through the hassle of inserting physical SIM card after the introduction of eSIM card.

Let us take a mobile phone as an example. Before you can use telephony services on a mobile phone, you must insert a physical SIM card. Finding or ejecting the SIM card slot, and placing the SIM card can be confusing at times. There are even occasions where you have to go to a mobile shop for the same purpose. The eSIM card is a virtual card that can be written directly to a mobile phone. Apple Watch Series 3, Huawei’s HUAWEI Watch 2 Pro, and Lenovo’s Miix 630 supports eSIM card currently.

The advantages of Using eSIM

One of the advantages of eSIM is that removes the hassle of removing and replacing SIM card on the part of users. It is worth mentioning that the traditional SIM cards are attached to a certain mobile network. If you want to change your mobile network, you have to replace the SIM card. With the help of eSIM card, you are free to switch between different operators at any time.

The use the eSIM card will remove the sim card slot, which means that mobile phone manufacturers can save some space with eSIM card option and we might eventually see even thinner mobile phones.

The advantage of eSIM for Mobile phone operators is that they can eliminate the cost of manufacturing SIM cards. They can use this cost to improve their service. So, a mobile phone providing better quality service can get more customers as users will want to switch them and they can easily switch between different operators with eSIM.

What next, Will eSIM cards replace traditional SIM cards?

With the advancement of technology in mobile phones, we can expect that more and more mobile manufacturers will start using eSIM. However, the good news is that eSIM cards may be used on smartphones from 2019 onwards. We believe that eSIM technology will gradually enter cellular mobile phone this year and popular mobile phones like Samsung, Apple, and Huawei might start implementing eSIM cards by 2019.

Will 5G replace home Wifi or cable internet?

With the development of technology, the 5G era is getting closer to us. At the recently concluded MWC of 2019, the GSMA released the “2019 Mobile Economy” report. It predicts that at least 18 Countries will have commercial 5G networks by the end of this year.

At the same time as MWC, US operator Verizon announced plans to launch 5G home Internet in more than 30 cities in the US in the first half of 2019, and the promotion of 5G home Internet will continue to expand in the second half of 2019. It’s worth noting that Verizon’s 5G home Internet service has no restrictions on data usage and comes with 3 months of Youtube TV. Mobile manufacturers like Samsung, Huawei, ZTE, OPPO Xiaomi, and other brands have also already started releasing 5G mobile phones.

The data tariffs are no more expensive as of a few years back. In this context, the use of 5G can become a reality. There is an ongoing debate on whether 5G can replace the traditional home Wifi or cable internet? Many people believe that the main advantage of WIFI lies in its unlimited use. So, once the 5G network starts providing unlimited internet, Home Wifi or cable internet is likely to be replaced by 5G.

Actually, 5G replacing Home Wifi and Cable internet is a false proposition because 5G and WIFI are not things on one level. 5G refers to the fifth-generation standard of wireless access networks. The main features are wavelengths of millimeters, ultra-wideband, ultra-high speed, and ultra-low latency. WIFI is a wireless LAN protocol created in the IEEE802.11 standard.

5G has the characteristics of low delay, high reliability, and large concurrent access. Therefore, theoretically, it can replace WIFI. However, 5G uses millimeter waves with weak penetration and rapid attenuation. With modern buildings and infrastructures, the concrete material will obviously block the strength of signal limiting the coverage area of 5G.

The current mainstream of WIFI is 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz, which has more strength than the 5G millimeter wave and is more suitable for indoor LAN layout. At the same time, for individuals and families, although WIFI is not as portable as 5G, it is easier to install. It only needs to be installed through broadband and wireless routers. 5G requires the intervention of the operators and the establishment of base stations.

5G and WIFI are not mutually competing for relationships but are complementary to each other. In the outdoor, the portability of mobile networks makes 5G more flexible than WIFI. Signal strength makes WIFI more suitable for Indoor User. Therefore, WIFI will be used as a means to convert 5G networks into local area networks in the future. In other words, WIFI will be incorporated into the 5G architecture instead of being replaced.
