Technical questions

What are M2M and IoT?

M2M (Machine To Machine) and IoT (Internet of Things) both refer to devices communicating with each other by exchanging data over the internet. M2M refers to isolated instances of device-to-device communication, and IoT refers to a grander scale of communication between multiple devices via the cloud.

What are the advantages of an IoT SIM versus a consumer SIM?

There are five principal benefits of using an IoT product, which are:

  • A tariff which is created specifically to suit your business needs

  • A higher quality of connectivity ensuring 24/7 internet access anywhere in the world

  • Real-time control and visibility of every SIM card   

  • Multiple SIM type available e.g. an industrial SIM for extreme conditions

  • Infrastructure available to provide enhanced data security

Why is multi-Network availability important?

In every country consumer SIM cards only work on a single Network, which often provides patchy and inconsistent coverage resulting in unreliable service. Whereas, our IoT SIM cardprovide non-steered Multi-Network roaming in all countries resulting in a superior level of connectivity    

Can you have voice and/or SMS on an IoT SIM?

Yes, both SMS and voice are available. However, if you would like these services blocked, this is also possible on an IoT SIM card. Any SMS or voice requirements will be discussed as part of the tariff building process
