What happens if your global tracking device uses a M2M SIM that’s out in the field, it has network connection, albeit a weak one. GPRS attachment is not being maintained – despite your M2M operator promising multiple network options in that country. The SIM will not switch networks as it is already successfully connected to a mobile network. This leaves you in a difficult position and renders your GPS tracking device totally inactive.

With M2M Resilience when data connectivity falls below a given threshold it will automatically activate an internal matrix is cross referenced with the available networks of not only M2M, but of 2 other global MNOs.
