An IoT SIM card is a variation of traditional SIM cards used in personal mobile devices like smartphones with additional features designed for IoT devices. This includes things like being more durable, secure, and flexible.

SIM Management is the ability to manage the profile and a subscription of a SIM card, as well as the ability to store confidential information in the SIM’s secure client. This includes user identity, payment credentials, biometrics for authentication, and other personal information, such as health or other records.

Basically, any business that relies upon SIM-connected devices. From logistics and fleet enterprises to security and industry. Whether you use SIM to track assets or collect data, SIM management can help you stay in control of your devices and your data.

Benefits of SIM Management

Extended Lifespan

The lifespan of your IoT devices’ SIMs is an important factor to keep in mind. Replacing a SIM card can be difficult, sometimes even impossible depending on the device.
Traditional SIMs typically have a lifespan of about three years. IoT SIMs come in various form factors, each with a different lifespan. They are extremely durable, and most can last up to ten years before needing to be replaced making them a great choice.

Maximize Productivity

Advantages of automated processes allow companies to use machines that are much more accurate than employees when it comes to completing a task. When something does go wrong the IoT enabled device can notify an engineer that it isn’t working properly. This allows engineers to identify exactly where a problem lies and fix it in order to save time.


Deploy IoT devices into harsh environments without worrying about losing your SIM to the elements. SIMs are built using industrial-grade SIM techniques as IoT devices might have to survive in harsh conditions such as strong winds, high or low temperatures, water, and excessive movement.
