This step-by-step guide is for testing your hardware and 1oT eSIM to ensure that your larger deployments with 1oT eSIM go smoothly and successfully.
Follow these steps with one eSIM to ensure that all settings on the hardware and Terminal side are correct. Once all the steps are complete, you can start using the 1oT eSIM.
If you've any problems during the test or anything is unclear, don't hesitate to contact us.
Let’s get started.
Before you activate your 1oT eSIM in Terminal, please keep in mind the following:
For hardware compatibility, please consult with your hardware manufacturer or check the list of hardware that supports eSIM with 1oT eSIM Test reports.
There are 2 variants of the 1oT eSIM card. Please follow the guide on how to find an EID number depending on which one you have ordered from us.
Option 1 - Plastic eSIM:
Option 2 - Embedded eSIM:
Once you have been able to find your EID number, please mark it down. Continue to the next section of testing if your eSIM card is attached to the device.
Your 1oT eSIM is now live and active!
1oT eSIM comes with a Default Carrier profile, which enables connectivity globally.
The ICCID you see attached to an EID is the default carrier profile that’s active on the 1oT eSIM card.
Make sure you can establish a data session and have Internet connectivity.
The following section describes a quick and basic test for making sure that the 1oT eSIM profile's management works as expected.
This test consists of three steps involving:
Keep your device powered on and connected to the network during the process.
From the 1oT Terminal eSIM Management Tool’s Carrier Comparison section, choose a profile most suitable for you and click “Continue with the carrier”.
Choose your eSIM in question by copy-pasting its EID number
Note! If you receive an error message here, then you’ve done something wrong in the previous 2 steps. Make sure again that your eSIM is set LIVE and the device is powered on.
Next up, choose the Data Package. As you’re performing a test right now, choose the “Pay-As-You-Go” option and you’re ready to proceed.
The overall download process can take up to 5 minutes.
The Terminal will notify you of a successful profile download, and the new profile will be available under your eSIM view.
Note! If Terminal notifies you that the download has failed, please proceed to troubleshoot eSIM compatibility on your device.
At this point, your eSIM is still connected with the default carrier profile.
You will not be able to delete a currently active or a default carrier profile.
Switch back to the default carrier profile to test the Delete Operation.
In the EID view, select a profile of choice from the "Downloaded carriers" section, and click the trash can icon to delete the profile.
Terminal will notify you of a successful profile deletion, and the deleted profile will disappear from your eSIM view.
Note! If Terminal notifies you that the delete has failed, please proceed to troubleshoot eSIM compatibility on your device.
Time to celebrate!
Once all three transactions are successfully tested and confirmed, you can be assured that your device and 1oT eSIMs are fully functional and compatible with remote SIM provisioning.
The most common cause of remote provisioning issues is non-compatible devices.
Please make sure your device supports, and you have enabled, STK and BIP functionality.You can check compatibility with your device manufacturer or check the 1oT eSIM-supported hardware list. Please refer to the device specification/manual or check 1oT eSIM test reports for any configuration help.
