Infineon`s new OPTIGA™ Connect IoT eSIM solution

August 30, 2020 by Infineon Technologies

Learn more about our new eSIM turnkey solution with pre-integrated connectivity for cellular-connected IoT devices.

OPTIGA™ Connect is a ready-to-connect embedded SIM (eSIM) solution for cellular IoT devices. This turnkey solution allows easy, secured, and cost-optimized deployment and management of cellular-enabled IoT devices at scale. It comes with a pre-installed GSMA-compliant operating system and pre-integrated connectivity capabilities. Supported by our partner Tata Communications, this eSIM offers global cellular network coverage (2G, 3G, 4G, CATM, and other LTE services) spanning 640+ networks across 200 countries and territories.



It addresses today's key pain points in connectivity management, namely interoperability across different vendors' GSMA subscription management platforms, local service deployment options, technical support, cost and coverage.

OPTIGA™ Connect IoT is based on Infineon's best-in-class Common Criteria EAL5+ certified eSIM hardware, which is designed to exceed the securitystandards typically required by industry today. This adds an additional level of tamper resistance to these solutions, hardening them against physical attacks - which is especially important for devices that remain in the field for long periods of time.

Infineon’s embedded SIM solutions are available in different quality grades and form factors to meet individual deployment requirements.
