Understanding IoT SIMs and Data Plans

JT IoT SIMsIoT-enabled devices will typically connect to the network using a Subscriber Identity Module, or SIM.  IoT SIMs are designed for use with IoT devices, with industrial-grade SIM cards that can withstand tough environments such as those that experience fluctuating temperatures, constant movement, or a considerable amount of dust and dirt.

Understand what IoT Data plans are available.

There are many options available when it comes to data plans for your IoT deployments.  It is important to work with a provider that can offer flexible data plans that can meet your requirements.

  • 2G, 3G & 4G LTE data plans and SMS
  • Pay-as-you-go data plans
  • Pay-if-use data plan
  • PrePaid data plans
  • Pooled data plans available to help control costs
  • Fixed IP data plans
  • Global data plans

If you anticipate that your monthly data usage will vary each month, look for an IoT data plan that provides a pay-if-use data plan model that only charges you when the deployment uses data. These options will enable your organization to save money.
