“Our Smart SIM technology allows us to provide our customers with a connectivity service designed for the coverage and quality of service that their IoT use cases require,” said Emmanuel Walckenaer, Senior Vice President, Cloud and Connectivity Services at Sierra Wireless. “When combined with our IoT Acceleration Platform, this unique, fully integrated device-to-cloud service accelerates our customers’ time-to-market.”

There are three unique benefits to the Sierra Wireless Smart SIM:

  • Extensive coverage – the Smart SIM automatically selects networks based on the best service available in any given location. It comes with multiple operator profiles already installed, effectively combining several MNO roaming SIMs into one physical Smart SIM. The on-board patented applet then intelligently selects the best available regional network operator at any given time. This results in better coverage and service up-time.
  • Smart network connectivity and superior Quality of Service (QoS) – Sierra Wireless’ fully redundant core network is designed and built for IoT connectivity and applications. The multi-operator Smart SIM selects the best available cellular network in any given location, ensuring the best possible data connection at all times. In the event a device loses network signal, whether in-transit or otherwise, the Smart SIM will detect this and re-establish the connection with another network automatically.
  • Cost-effective simplicity – with a single Smart SIM and unified IoT Acceleration platform, Sierra Wireless vastly simplifies global IoT deployments, saving customers the time and expense of having to arrange multiple service agreements, SIMs and platforms, and the management of disparate vendors (see white paper for more information).

“The QoS capability of Sierra Wireless’ innovative Smart SIM technology was a key factor in our vendor selection process because we needed to maximize coverage across multiple network operators,” said Chris Gnanakone, Founder and Co-CEO for Nube, an energy management company based in Latin America. “It was important for us to choose a partner that could eliminate much of the technical risk in our solution. We were able to get to market faster because Sierra Wireless’ hardware is pre-integrated with the cloud platform.”

“In the payments industry it is crucial that our terminals are connected at all times, allowing our customers to transact business,” said Daniel Nordholm, CTO for Bambora, a global payments company headquartered in Sweden. “The broader coverage benefits of the Sierra Wireless Smart SIM ensure we can deliver service to our customers at all times. We were also looking for a single SIM solution to serve all of our terminals regardless of geography in order to drive down the complexity and cost of deploying and supporting our global customers."

Sierra Wireless has more than 700,000 SIM subscribers globally that count on its connectivity offering to power their IoT deployments. Customers manage and automate all aspects of the Sierra Wireless Smart SIM using the IoT Acceleration Platform, providing a simple way to integrate SIM logistics into their connected product or service. The IoT Acceleration Platform is unique in the industry in that it can also manage third-party network operator SIMs, providing customers a single unified connectivity management platform for all deployed SIMs.

The addition of the Smart SIM and Connectivity service to the broader Sierra Wireless portfolio now provides customers with all of the service infrastructure they require to create, deploy and manage their IoT applications. By integrating connectivity management, operations management and application enablement services into one unique platform, customers spend less time integrating multiple platforms, allowing them to accelerate their deployment of connected products and services.

Sierra Wireless’ connectivity service operates on 2G and 3G today, and LTE will be available in Q2 2016 on a worldwide basis. The Smart SIM is already LTE-ready and available today. For more information about Smart SIM, please visit http://www.sierrawireless.com/SIM.
