An eSIM Router can provide a mobile broadband Internet connection using the mobile phone networks but does not require a physical SIM card to be inserted into the router. This is really useful if you are buying an eSIM 4G Router or eSIM 5G Router for remote access and monitoring such as a CCTV or security monitoring solution because when you need to change your Fixed IP SIM service provider you do not need to visit site to swap out a physical SIM Card. Your eSIM Fixed IP SIM provider can use the eSIM capabilities to switch to their new service. This will provide enhanced competition and more choice in the Fixed IP SIM Card marketplace which will hopefully lead to better cost management and ease of use for 4G router and 5G router users for M2M applications. There will be a new breed of eSIM router for both 4G and 5G networks and whilst the initial cost of a 4G eSIM router will be more than a standard M2M 4G router, the long term cost benefits achieved by the ease in which you can switch SIM card providers will easily compensate for the higher initial cost.
