The ESIM session at MWC23’s Partner Programmes, titled “ESIM: A Hands-On Lab and Beyond,” has exceeded the expectations of its host, RedteaMobile and Counterpoint, with an overwhelming demand for conference reservations. The program aims to provide a comprehensive user experience of using eSIMs, particularly for generic users, and inspire innovative ideas for implementing fully digital transformation on top of eSIM.
The live demos and hands-on tutorials provide insight into the adoption of eSIMs in various devices, including iPhones, iPads, and other eSIM-enabled devices, and highlight some of the hidden benefits of eSIM adoption. Additionally, the session will feature a demonstration of how eSIM is adopted to disrupt international roaming, making it possible to win subscriber loyalty and favor Generation Z.
eSIM is becoming an increasingly essential technology in the US and global markets. According to a 2021 Juniper Research study, the number of eSIMs installed in connected devices is expected to grow from 1.2 billion in 2021 to 3.4 billion in 2025, representing a growth of 180%. However, the technology may still need refinement before it becomes comfortable for regular mobile customers.
Despite this, most operators see eSIM as an enabler of new revenue and further digitization for consumers, according to the GSMA. The organization’s 2021 report on eSIM states that the most important benefit of eSIMs is linking other devices to a primary subscription plan, which is typically a smartphone plan. The report also notes that eSIMs present new opportunities for product/service innovation and new thinking on how mobile tariffs should be designed in a 5G and eSIM world.
Redtea Mobile, which has a strong end-to-end portfolio from firmware to its management platform to connectivity, is well positioned for expansion beyond the Asian markets. Counterpoint Technology Market Research is a global research firm specializing in products in the technology, media, and telecom industry. Its seasoned experts in the high-tech industry service major technology and financial firms with a mix of monthly reports, customized projects, and detailed analyses of the mobile and technology markets.
Looking forward, the eSIM ecosystem is set to continue its momentum in 2023, with new devices, technology and innovation, and more widespread adoption. This is supported by the increased interest in eSIM by consumers and the fact that over 260 MNOs/MVNOs now support eSIM, with the average device support by carriers being more than 30.
In addition to its participation in the MWC23 Partner Programmes, RedteaMobile is also the creator of the popular eSIM app RedteaGO, which has gained a strong following in Asia and is rapidly expanding globally. This app enables users to easily download and manage eSIMs for their mobile devices, without the need for physical SIM cards.

RedteaGO also offers competitive pricing and flexible data plans, giving users more control over their mobile data usage and costs. With RedteaGO, users can easily top up their data allowances or adjust their plans to meet their changing needs.
To use RedteaGO, simply download the app from the App Store or Google Play, create an account, and follow the prompts to add and activate your eSIMs. The app offers support for a wide range of devices, including iPhones, iPads, and Android smartphones and tablets.
Overall, RedteaGO is a powerful and user-friendly app that offers a new level of flexibility and convenience for mobile users, and is a great example of how eSIM technology is transforming the mobile industry.
