Steered sim
• Have a list of primary roaming networks that dictate which network the SIM connects while roaming in any given country. Therefore, Steered SIMs connect to the predefined networks even if stronger and better quality networks are available. • Can only change the network when the signal drops below a certain threshold. • Devices are more likely to remain on its preferred network even when that one is not available due to a local outage or one in its core network.

Non-Steered sim
• Do not have any predefined preference on their networks list. Instead, these SIMs automatically arrange a list of all the available networks and are free to connect to the strongest and best possible network in any given area. • Priorities connectivity, this means that the roaming SIM will always connect to the strongest signal available, no matter what network is it. • Devices can select their preferred network based on measured data throughput.

Very! You just have to enter the APN name. No username and password is required. The APN name will be advised at the time of order; or you can ask our support team. Some devices require to set the roaming and automatic network selection option to on.

Multi-network SIM cards automatically compile a list of available networks, then connect to the one with the strongest signal. You don’t need to do anything like switch the device off and on or reconfigure its settings.

If your Multi-network SIM loses signal, the device will immediately search for a new network to connect to. Some devices use extra logic, like pinging a certain IP address, to determine if connectivity is lost and to reconnect.

When switching, the device has to re-register on another network, so there may be a brief 30-60 second delay in re-connecting.

The standard SIM cards we use in our cell phones today were designed and manufactured for use in cell phones. As a result, mobile SIM plans are usage-focused and designed around consumer needs. M2M SIMs behave much like standard SIMs, but specifically designed for use in machine-to-machine and IoT applications and durable than consumer SIMs. They often need to be used in commercial or harsh environments, so they can withstand significantly higher and lower temperatures. The resistance range is typically -40°C to 105°C. They are corrosion-resistant, and commercial advantages include the flexibility to share data between devices.

Yes, you can set the SIM to prefer a specific network but this should be for troubleshooting only, as locking it to a single network removes the Multi-network capability!.

Unlike their single-network counterparts, an intelligent Multi-network SIM card is one that’s able to access many or all of the networks in a given location.

Yes. This can be done for all our Multi-network SIMs, as well as most of our managed SIM cards.

Yes, We absolutely can apply those required rules for you.

Our flexible and adaptable solutions allow you to connect your networks via direct interconnect physically or via IPsec, extending your network right down to the device itself.

Yes, there is an API for management which replicates all features available in the portal interface. Instead of using the portal, you can use the API to build the management functionality of the SIM cards directly into your own portal. This makes it easier for your users because they can use an interface they are already familiar with.

M2M traffic generally uses what is called a “private APN”, which is configured on the device. The APN is a configuration context in the mobile network which gives different resources to the M2M traffic. This generally means that the bandwidth is not shared with consumer bandwidth, so there is no risk of congestion in peak periods, and service levels for that APN are higher than a standard consumer type SIM card.

A private APN allows you to use a mobile network operator’s infrastructure as your own private network for connectivity directly into the organisation’s private network. We utilise APN technology as one of the many network stack layers to create fully secure private mobile connected networks from the endpoint directly into the secure network.
