With the rollout of 4G, 5G and embedded-SIMs (eSIMs), the key technical enablers are now in place for integrating cellular communication modules directly into products during the manufacturing process.

GSMA Intelligence anticipates the number of cellular IoT connections will almost triple this decade from 1.9 billion in 2020 to 5.3 billion by 2030.

But the rate of adoption will depend on the extent to which businesses can resolve the commercial and operational challenges around employing embedded connectivity at scale.

This paper explores how multinational companies, in particular, can harness the flexibility to tailor cellular connectivity to the specific requirements of their use cases and the distinct regulatory and operational constraints of the markets in which they operate.

Rather than having to work with a one-size-fits all solution, device makers should be able to configure their connectivity, both to keep costs down and satisfy the needs of their customers.
