Reports & Data
At CES 2019, wearable device vendors showcased their latest products, which offer a greater number of features than the original smartwatches and fitness trackers, allowing them to also be used as medical devices. Obstacles to deploying these devices will include obtaining medical clearance, ensuring adequate battery life, and cost considerations, among others.
The eSIM remains a hot topic and one which original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), mobile network operators (MNOs), smart card and secure IC vendors continue to explore, prepare and strategize. Today, the handset market has begun to move, driven by Google’s recently launched Pixel 2 handsets with eSIM inclusion, raising expectations that other OEMs will follow suit. In addition, the rise of the eSIM has raised fears that it may be used as a platform for OEMs to directly compete with its current MNO customer base, using the eSIM as a platform from which to launch MVNO services.
