Indonesia Explores Implementation of e-SIM Technology

Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) cards from mobile operators in cell phones are becoming more advanced, and their sizes are getting smaller, making it easier for humans to be more efficient. The SIM card size, which initially started as a mini SIM, evolved into micro SIM and nano SIM, and the latest one is e-SIM or electronic SIM. Owners will no longer need to physically remove and insert SIM cards to connect to the network.

The Ministry of Communication and Information Technology (Kominfo) has announced that it will conduct a study to test the implementation of the Embedded Subscriber Identity Module (eSIM) in Indonesia. This step is part of the government’s efforts to anticipate and leverage the latest telecommunications technology developments. The study aims to comprehensively understand eSIM technology and explore the best ways to implement it effectively in Indonesia.

“The Public Testing Draft for the implementation study of eSIM is intended to gather responses and input from stakeholders involved in the eSIM implementation to improve the study material, thus producing a comprehensive and accurate study to support the eSIM ecosystem in Indonesia,” wrote Kominfo in a written statement.

Kominfo explains that eSIM technology is a promising solution to replace conventional physical SIM cards, enhancing security. By using eSIM, customer identity information is no longer stored in physical form on a card but integrated directly into the electronic device itself. It allows users to easily manage and access various communication services without physically changing SIM cards. Instead, users only need to scan a barcode to activate the eSIM.

The eSIM is embedded within a device and can be remotely activated with a local operator for use in a specific region. Owners of devices with embedded eSIM can also use mobile services from one country to another by activating the card in the destination country. This technology enables individuals to use a single phone with eSIM in multiple countries worldwide, eliminating the need to switch SIM cards for different local mobile operators.

Another advantage of eSIM technology is its larger capacity than conventional physical SIM cards. Users can simultaneously load up to eight different e-SIMs in a single smartphone. Therefore, the larger capacity of e-SIM opens new opportunities and provides greater flexibility in managing communication services. For example, users can have one eSIM for personal use, one eSIM for work, and several additional eSIMs for particular purposes, such as travelling abroad or using different networks.

Users no longer need to physically change SIM cards when switching operators or activating new services. Users can easily activate, deactivate, or switch between registered eSIMs on their devices through software settings. It saves time and provides convenience for users who frequently switch between operators or require access to different types of networks.

Additionally, multiple eSIMs in a single device provide an ideal solution for users with complex communication needs. For example, business owners with various phone numbers or professionals who frequently travel and require connectivity in different countries can easily manage and organise all their services through a single device.

Through this study, the government hopes to understand better the potential and challenges associated with eSIM implementation in Indonesia. It includes evaluating the regulatory and infrastructure needs required to support eSIM adoption and determining the appropriate policy measures to ensure adequate security, privacy, and consumer protection.

By adopting eSIM technology, in the future, Indonesian society can enjoy the benefits and conveniences offered by the latest communication technology while ensuring the protection of data and user security remains intact.
