What is a multi-network IoT SIM card?

Unlike traditional SIM cards, Cellhire’s multi-network IoT SIM card is not tied to a single mobile network operator and instead can connect to multiple mobile networks.

In the world of IoT, multi-network SIM cards provide unmatched flexibility and reliability, serving as the backbone for seamless and uninterrupted connectivity.

What's the difference between a single network and a multi-network IoT SIM card?

FeatureSingle network IoT SIM cardMulti-network IoT SIM card
Network coverageLimited to a single networkRoaming across multiple networks
Global reachLimited to specific regionsGlobal coverage in multiple countries
ReliabilityHigh, within the designated networkHigh, with seamless network switching
CostTypically lower due to more limited coverageTypical more expensive due additional coverage
FlexibilityLimited to one network providerFlexible, can switch networks based on signal strength and cost
RedundancyLimited, if the network fails, the device might lose connectionHigh, if one network fails, the SIM card allows the device to select an alternative network
Use caseSuitable for fixed-location IoT devicesIdeal for mobile devices that need to operate in multiple locations
Network downtime impactSignificant impact if the network experiences downtimeMinimal impact, as the device can switch the SIM to another available network
ScalabilityLimited scalability, may require changing SIM cards if expanding to new regionsHighly scalable, suitable for IoT deployments in various regions

Our permanent roaming solution has all the correct permissions to operate on foreign networks, eliminating the risk of disruptions caused by unforeseen roaming partner changes.

What are the benefits of Cellhire’s unsteered multi-network IoT SIM cards?

Coverage nodes surrounding person
Enhanced coverage

IoT devices can maintain their connectivity in areas where the signal strength of a single network is weak or unavailable by using multi-network SIM cards. These SIM cards can move between multiple MNOs, providing them access to a wider range of cellular networks.

Reinforced by Cellhire's permanent roaming IoT connectivity

Permanent roaming is where a traditional data SIM card is used outside of its home network for an extended period.

Although it may seem convenient, network operators are becoming increasingly alarmed due to the sustained costs they incur when foreign SIMs are operating on their network.

As a result, the network operators are implementing abrupt SIM disconnections, rendering your IoT devices inoperable & disrupting vital services without any prior warning!

Our permanent roaming solution has all the correct permissions to operate on foreign networks, eliminating the risk of disruptions caused by unforeseen roaming partner changes.
