The objective of this document is to define the technical specification of a standard format to be used for the loading and installation of an interoperable Profile Package in any compliant eUICC.
The latest version of the specification includes major updates to support the remote loading of eSIM profiles onto network-constrained IoT devices, as well as full alignment with 3GPP Release 17 to enable enhanced 5G functionality and emerging use-cases. It also includes clarifications and guidance to further promote eSIM interoperability.This latest updates to the profile package include support for SCP11 and DNS Configuration.
A key update in Version 3.3 is the definition of a ‘lightweight’ IoT minimal profile to address the growing challenge of remotely managing network-constrained IoT devices. This makes it possible to provision a profile even when bandwidth is very limited, which is crucial to supporting the growing use of eSIM technology to enable various IoT use-cases and connectivity services.
The embedded UICC (eUICC), and the subsequent requirement for remote provisioning, has introduced the need for a number of operations, previously carried out in personalisation centres by individual UICC vendors, to be performed remotely in an open ecosystem.
This document specifies the structure and coding required to build, remotely load and install a profile in an eUICC.
It is intended primarily for Profile Creator providers, Profile Creator users (i.e. Mobile Network Operators or MNOs) and eUICC vendors in order for them to elaborate and exchange profiles with guaranteed interoperability.
The Profile Package, as technically specified in this document, represents the structure of data to be built by the Profile Creator and to be loaded in the eUICC in order for the eUICC to be personalised according to the content of the Profile Package.
