Lithuanian regulator orders study on fostering eSIM use

Lithuanian telecommunications regulator RRT has signed a contract with the company Ernst & Young Baltic. The company will prepare a study proposing a model to support implementation of eSIMs in the country. More about eSIM Lithuania find out below.

The aim of the study is to develop a model for promoting the use of Integrated Subscriber Identification Modules (eSIM) in Lithuania, based on a detailed analysis of international practice and the current situation.

In Lithuania, mobile communication services are usually still provided using traditional physical SIM cards inserted in communication devices. Using such a technological solution, in order to start using the services, it is necessary to contact e. contact your service provider and physically obtain a SIM card. service provider, even if you keep your current phone number, you need to change your existing SIM card to a SIM card issued by your new service provider. When mobile services are used for personal needs, a subscriber wishing to change operator must contact the new operator to issue a new SIM card, insert it into the existing communication device, and in some cases reboot or reconfigure the communication device. And in business, communication devices can number in the hundreds or thousands,. Internet of Things (IoT ) solutions. These devices can be remote, even used in foreign countries, making the replacement of a physical SIM card on each device extremely time-consuming and costly. This creates the preconditions for restrictions in the provision of services to both consumers and businesses developing IoT solutions.

The eSIM solution enables over-the-air provisioning). In Lithuania, solutions are already emerging that offer the use of e. communication services, implementing them in the modules integrated in the devices, but in the absence of clear criteria and practices for the provision of services based on eSIM technology, the eSIM solution in Lithuania still does not fully function. There is a visible interest, need and anticipated concrete benefits for certain sectors and companies in providing end-users with innovative e-services. eSIM-based communication services, on the other hand, are hampered by the lack of uniform and universally accepted, practical, standards, mechanisms defining technological and organizational processes, unclear implementation costs, and a lack of clear “use cases” to ensure a return on investment.

This study will help you find detailed, comprehensive and reasoned answers to the questions that arise. The competent team of Lithuanian and foreign experts led by UAB Ernst & Young Baltic, which won the public tender, will perform an analysis of international practice, including the experience of at least 9 foreign countries most advanced in this field, international standards and recommendations, good project examples and Lithuanian situation. , all stakeholders – e. assessment of readiness, barriers, needs and prospects of communication service providers, businesses planning to deploy eSIM-based IoT solutions, and end-users.

Thales & G+D maintain leadership in Global eSIM market

On the basis of the analysis, a model for promoting the use of eSIM and its implementation tools will be developed – technical, cyber and information security, legal and organizational, which should be implemented by the responsible authorities, e. communication service providers and economic operators interested in the use of these services. At each stage of the study preparation, it is planned to closely cooperate with all interested parties, refining and finding optimal solutions for Lithuania.

The preparation of the study is provided for in the DNA Plan of the Future Economy and entrusted to the Communications Regulatory Authority as e. the regulator of the communications sector, one of whose tasks is to promote efficient long-term investment and innovation in electronic communications. The study is planned to be prepared by this year. December. esim lithuania
