Connect to the Cloud

IoT SIM Cards

Any property or equipment used by a company to make money, is known as an asset. On the other hand, ‘IoT devices’ are any pieces of apparatus containing IoT SIMs – which are used to connect an asset to the cloud.

As we just mentioned, automatic devices known as IoT SIM cards are typically deployed on these assets. For example, let’s consider a vending machine. The vending machine itself is the asset in this scenario and the IoT gateway is the device (or ‘thing’). Why would we even connect the vending machine to the cloud? Well, there are many pros, like inventory management, customer analytics, transaction management, operations and software management, and digital advertising.

So, how do we connect the vending machine to the cloud? The answer to that question is by using IoT SIM cards. There are many advantages with these cards – IoT SIMs stay connected pretty much anywhere in the world, as mobile networks in 200-plus countries can be accessed with even fairly standard IoT SIMs.

IoT SIM Cards

Software Support & Set-Up

With your IoT SIM cards you will get access to a SIM management platform – so that you have full control over each and every one of your IoT SIM cards no matter where in the world they are. What’s more, the charges for global IoT SIMs are very low compared to a standard mobile SIM. You only have to pay for what you use.

Setting up Luner IoT SIMs is very easy: You just have to configure the APN name given by your provider and your device. This means that with a global IoT SIM card you can have your device operate pretty much anywhere in the world at a very low cost.

The Next Step

Connecting to a Network

Let’s go back to our vending machine example. We will use the global IoT SIM card with the asset’s IoT device to access a mobile network. And if you don’t know how global M2M IoT SIMs work – you’re about to find out, as once the initial set-up work is done, it’s time to find out if our vending machine (and the IoT SIM card within it) can access a mobile network.

The vending machine should connect to the preferred network of the SIM provider if the coverage is good. If not, it should try to connect to the next best allowed network, as both national and Internet roaming connections are possible.

Why Should Your Business be Embracing IoT?

The Advantages of IoT SIM Cards

So yes, in today’s world and with the help of global IoT SIM cards, your business can have a global presence. That possibility leads us to the question of why we need to connect such devices to the cloud. Well, there are many advantages… Using IoT SIM cards to connect to the cloud will make it possible for you to analyse your device’s data. It grants you the ability to manage your IoT SIM cards (and the devices they are in) centrally, it gives higher data security, and you can also easily scale your processing resources up and down based on your current requirements, AWS, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud are the most widely-used cloud computing platforms. And now that you know that, you now know about all of the aspects of cellular IoT.
