Let us help solve your technical challenges with our static\fixed IP M2M SIMs
What is M2M?
M2M is driven by IoT (Internet of Things). It basically is the process in which two ‘things’ (connected devices) transmit data between them, allowing automation across most of your processes and removing the need for any human intervention. M2M is widely renown across a broad range of industries as having the ability to increase productivity and promote efficiencies.
What is IoT?
Simply put, IoT is a network of everyday devices/appliances that connect to the internet and is designed to make processes much more accurate and efficient.
Why an M2M SIM rather than a standard SIM card?
To connect our devices to the internet a fixed internet connection is not always the most reliable, and a standard mobile SIM will not offer the same features and functionality of an M2M SIM.
An M2M SIM card is mainly used for sending and receiving data; and not for voice and texts. These SIMs can provide you with GPRS, 2G, 3G and 4G connectivity, depending on your chosen tariff.
M2M SIM cards also allow you to aggregate data across your SIM estate. This gives you the flexibility to share data across all your connected devices. If one of your devices is overusing data and another is under-using, they’ll both take data from the same pot. Therefore, you can rest knowing that overspending is far less likely.
What are the Benefits?
Reduce costs – M2M is all about efficiency and the automation of tasks. It will optimise many of your processes for faster working.
Continuous communication – Your data is always available in real-time, and because information is stored in the cloud, you can access it from anywhere via a smartphone, tablet or computer.
Scalable –M2M is completely scalable, so it can grow with your business.
Reporting – The tools we have allow us to monitor data usage closely and always ensure you are made aware of any high/excess usage before any overspend can occur.
Improved quality – with this level of control you can attend to any issues as and when they arise with the ability to carry out the work remotely.
Focus on priorities – with M2M bearing the weight, and automating your processes it allows you to focus your time and energy on more profitable activities.
Security – M2M management platforms and data transfers use encryption and authentication to ensure your information is always completely secure.
Instant alerts – whatever your business, M2M can alert you to any issue in an instant.
