A multi-network data SIM card is different to a typical consumer SIM in multiple ways, the most obvious being that the SIM can connect to more than one mobile network at any one time, seamlessly switching between the strongest signal being presented in the SIMs location. This unique capability has driven a large growth in demand for multi-network SIMs, as the SIMs have a large number of benefits being realised by businesses.

What are they used for?

We’ve seen a real boom in multi-network SIMs being used in security and surveillance, retail, healthcare and renewable energy. The SIMs allow businesses to communicate remotely with their assets and installations, as well as providing remote workers ‘always on’ connectivity as the SIMs have a more than 99.99% uptime in being connected to the internet.

We’re also seeing businesses use the SIMs for failover and increasing their business resilience to internet outages. The SIMs can be bonded to create enhanced connectivity, or simply placed as a back up into devices to be used should a fixed line connection become unavailable.

Who should use a multi-network data SIM?

Businesses who rely on connectivity to operate their businesses. This could be those with remote or roaming workers, companies that have machinery and installations, those that require POS connectivity and much more. Due to their usefulness and reliability, multi-network data SIMs are increasingly being sued in M2M applications and IoT deployments.
