Moving Beyond Consumer SIMs for IoT
A Sierra Wireless Whitepaper
How Choosing a SIM Designed for the IoT Delivers Maximum Coverage, Performance and Ultimate Flexibility
In the Internet of Things (IoT), cellular-based deployments typically connect to the network using a Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) originally designed for mobile phones and other consumer devices. Unfortunately, IoT devices behave differently, have different technical requirements and use different business models than consumer devices. Using traditional SIMs for IoT applications increases complexity and is not an effective long-term solution to connecting billions of IoT devices.
