Everything you need to know about IoT SIMs: A Quick Guide
An IoT SIM card is a variation of traditional SIM cards, used in personal mobile devices like smartphones, that have additional features designed for IoT devices. This includes things like being more durable, secure, and flexible.
SIM cards work by establishing a connection to your host network and transferring data between your device and the rest of your IoT platform. While you could technically use traditional
SIM cards for this purpose, it’s not recommended as they are not equipped to meet the needs of most IoT projects.
IoT devices have unique needs from other smart devices like phones and tablets. They need to
be able to maintain a secure connection at nearly all times, survive in harsher conditions, and meet the specific needs of your IoT project’s goals.
