GSMA eSA certified 5G M2M embedded SIMs for IIOT systems

There are some disadvantages in using a physical SIM card in cellular network dependent IOT based smart factories and any such automation applications. Maintenance and operating staff of such systems need to change the SIM card, if they change service provider. To ensure more effectiveness of automation in machine-to-machine communications, embedded SIM is a better choice. Since 5G offers irresistible benefits, the industry will migrate to 5G networks as fast as they are available. Keeping this in mind security/identification semiconductor vendor
 STMicroelectronics has made available a new  ST4SIM-201 embedded eSIM for industrial IOT systems with ability to connect with 5G networks.

ST4SIM-201 supports 5G standalone (SA) networks, 3G and 4G networks and low-power wide-area (LPWA) technologies such as long-term evolution for machines (LTE-M) and narrowband Internet of Things (NB-IoT).

ETSI/3GPP release 16 compliant ST4SIM-201 is certified according to the latest GSMA eUICC M2M specification, SGP.02 version 4.2, which allows remote personalization to simplify provisioning and maintenance.

Below are some more details shared by STMicroelectronics:
It is the first device to achieve GSMA eUICC security assurance (eSA), using the SGP.05 eUICC Protection Profile Version 1.1. With this, users can select the desired carrier that can be changed remotely without physical access to the device. This simplifies logistics, enhances flexibility, and helps reduce lifetime ownership costs. In addition, users can take advantage of test profiles and emergency profiles as specified in SGP.02 version 4.2.

Available in the industrial grade, the ST4SIM-201 is ideal for IoT applications and any equipment that requires a cellular connection. These include smart meters, asset trackers, health monitors, security devices, telemetry equipment, safety systems, and other connected, smart “things”.

Complying with the ETSI specifications ensures support for features that boost efficiency in M2M applications. These include power-saving mode (PSM) and extended discontinuous reception (eDRX), which maximizes use of idle modes. The ST4SIM-201 also supports ETSI-specified suspend/resume commands that facilitate power management.

The ST4SIM-201 is available in various form factors to meet differing customer requirements, including a 5mm x 6mm DFN8 dual flat no-lead package and wafer-level chip-scale package (WLCSP), as well as standard 2FF, 3FF, and 4FF plug-in cards.
