Cellular IoT Provision

IoT SIM Cards

Naturally, IoT gateways routers have a much more demanding role to play, given the scale of connectivity that is required for industrial-sized IoT projects. Not every device can be connected to the internet, it would not be a feasible option to have IoT SIM cards in every single one.

Therefore, the IoT gateways allow these devices to utilise their cellular WAN connection to access the internet, enabling a seamless infrastructure that doesn’t require a wired connection or a great deal of IoT SIM cards. They have been developed to provide internet access in remote locations and can handle the large amounts of data created by potentially thousands of IoT devices.

 So now instead of having to deploy individual IoT SIM cards into each device, the user can simply use one of these IoT SIM cards within their gateway router for cellular connectivity.

IoT SIM Cards

Different Sizes

It is important however that proper IoT SIM cards are used within IoT and IIoT devices and applications. Regular smartphone or cell phone SIM cards, for instance, are not going to have the same functionality as IoT SIM cards. Even though the two may essentially look exactly the same, there are some very important differences that users must take into consideration.

IoT SIM Cards

What's Important?

IoT SIM cards have been designed to withstand much harsher conditions than their consumer-friendly counterparts. Sure, a phone may get thrown around in a bag or bumped around in a pocket but that’s not a patch on the harsh conditions that IoT SIM cards may have to live through. They are able to survive wider-ranging temperatures, both hot and cold, and can operate throughout constant vibrations or movements.

IoT SIMs

Save Time And Money

IoT SIM cards also come in a wide range of sizes, which users are able to select to complement their IoT devices. They have also been designed to prevail against a higher level of moisture than a regular SIM card. All of these factors ensure that the IoT SIM cards have a longer life span in accordance with their industrial requirements.

Coverage

IoT SIM Cards

One of the biggest, and indeed most important, factors that differ IoT SIM cards from their ordinary counterparts is the connectivity and networking options. A standard SIM card, such as that supplied with a mobile phone, is designed to provide local coverage and connectivity within a pre-determined area with one specified network provider. A contract is provided by the supplier which the consumer usually pays for monthly as standard. If users stray out of the pre-designated area, then they are likely to be subjected to high penalty charges.

On the other hand, Luner IoT SIM cards operate in a way that saves time and money for the business. They have the ability to connect to multiple network providers on a global scale with much more flexible payment plans that can be paused or cancelled at any time. The IoT SIM cards also come with the ability to access control over a user interface so that they may be remotely controlled and configured, unlike regular SIMs which the user is not able to manage independently.
