Roaming SIM Card

Renewable Energy Solutions Use of Roaming SIM Card

Renewable Energy Solutions are using the M2M Data Connect roaming SIM card for extensive IoT connectivity coverage for all key areas of electricity generation, air and water heating or cooling and solar. Renewable Energy Solutions get transformed by Roaming SIM card Renewable energy mainly provides energy in the key areas of electricity generation, air and water heating or cooling and solar. These then feed into the national grid, and off-grid energy services. The industry is increasing massively in size in the United Kingdom and internationally. One of the major requirements is to have very secure remote connectivity to monitor and control the assets on a daily basis, especially due to the environments in which the expensive renewable energy assets are located. Using the Multi-network, roaming SIM card enables remote asset management, which results in thousands of pounds on human labour costs incurred from frequent site visits. These assets include Solar Farms, Wind Turbines and Hydroelectric generators. Which can sometimes operate in harsh environments and remote locations. As a result, this makes them ideal assets to utilise the Multi-network, roaming SIM card. Assets can be connected to over the internet with a click of a mouse button via a secure connection using the M2M Data Connect private APN. Whether you monitor energy production from a solar farm, or the CCTV footage of a camera on a solar site, an M2M Data Connect roaming SIM card allows you to do it all remotely. Intelligent Smart Grid utilise M2M solutions A smart grid is an “intelligent” electricity distribution network that uses M2M solutions to enable the automated interaction of intelligent devices to react to critical events helping to improve efficiency and reliability in energy distribution and optimize the allocation of resources and the usage of assets. Energy efficiency is becoming a factor in business success, as is planned energy management in the public and private sectors, allowing to reduced energy consumption. M2M technology can help improve energy efficiency by remotely monitoring and controlling the consumption of powered devices and tracking usage for billing and reporting. Automated meter readers (AMR) are innovative and advanced utility meter that records a business or consumers energy, water or gas usage in real-time. M2M technology enables customer relationship management, demand-side management and value-added services, helping to provide a more reliable and sustainable supply. Managing solar and wind farms that are sited offshore or in remote locations is a challenge. M2M technologies provide a simple, cost-effective solution for retrieving assessment and monitoring data to maximize energy production and reduce the need of other sources by enabling real-time response to output changes caused by changing weather, failure or maintenance issues. In the oil, gas and petroleum industry, production and distribution systems can span hundreds of kilometres and suffer inclement weather. M2M solutions allow centralizing monitoring and access, helping controllers to communicate with instrumentation at wellheads, pipelines and other remote sites.

eSIM Connectivity

eSIMs the Missing Link in the Internet of Things

eSIMs are already rapidly gaining traction within the Internet of Things industry.  For instance, they are creating new opportunities for mobile network operators and manufacturers of connected IoT devices for consumers. We have seen machine to machine communications develop and enhance numerous IoT device to be connected. However, with the growing demand for smart connectivity for energy meters to connected cars, we have seen limitations to the standard SIM card. The environments that SIM cards have to endure, such as extreme temperatures or shocks, along with its size has resulted in limitations to applications. eSIM is the key to the future growth of the M2M market The embedded eSIM is the missing link to the Internet of Things. It solves all these problems and creates new opportunities for manufacturers and mobile network operators (MNOs). We will now discuss the features and benefits of the eSIM and how it is the next set up in the evolution of the M2M market. Designed to be rugged and robust The eSIM has been designed to be rugged, it is soldered in place inside a device and then sealed. As a result, this makes it water and temperature-resistant. This makes it more robust and ideal for use in connected cars, which may well be driven in extreme heat and on bumpy roads. They can be connected remotely Remote SIM Provisioning specifications have been built into each eSIM. This enables multiple mobile operators’ profiles to be generated and securely downloaded and provisioned over the air onto an eSIM. Small but powerful The space saved by embedding a SIM can be as much as 90% on a physical card. As a result, the reach of the eSIM extends to new consumer devices like smartwatches, wristbands and rings, increasing the number of mobile connections, and dramatically increases the size of the potential market for MNOs. Always stay connected with eSIM Roaming eSIMs are interoperable which means users can easily switch between any available network. You can host multiple SIM profiles, with software updating all the devices for you as you switch carriers. In addition, the main strength of an eSIM sim is the ability to streamline and amplify. As a result, your devices will always stay connected to the strongest mobile signal, saving you money, time and stress. They are secure An eSIM uses the latest secure encryption and transportation of operator credentials. They come with full compliance with the stringent security requirements of the GSMA’s Security Accreditation Scheme for eSIM remote provisioning. Streamline logistics for MNOs MNOs can now develop truly digital experiences for their subscribers while reducing the burden on their supply chain and gaining customer loyalty. eSIM will power the future The eSIM is soon to play an integral role with the rollout of 5G connectivity. When 5G becomes standard, devices containing eSIMs will possess processing power that is incredibly robust and will rely on them to manage their connection.​ The future will be powered by connectivity, especially in the upcoming rise of the 5G network.

Our 4G Fixed IP SIM Cards with public IP address assignments give you a connection to the mobile Internet with a public IP address enabling you to connect directly to your 4G router. As a result, this gives you the ultimate connectivity for your business, the fastest internet available on 4G and the ability to connect anytime, anywhere, choose an M2M Data Connect fixed IP SIM card. Why Do I Need A Fixed IP SIM Card with Public IP Address? If you want to remotely access your 4G router over the mobile broadband Internet then a Fixed IP SIM card is needed.  A fixed IP SIM card with Public IP address is the most convenient way to ensure reliable connectivity because you always know what your 4G router IP address is.  As a result, when your router reboots it will always have the same IP address and you manage your SIMs using our M2M SIM management. Fixed IP SIM Cards supplied with a choice of Public or Private IP address assignments Watch our Fixed IP SIM Card video to find out more.  And to get a free quote please visit our Fixed IP SIM Cards product range. What’s the difference between a standard data SIM and a Fixed IP SIM Card with Public IP Address? If you use a standard Data SIM card to connect to the internet over the 4G network and visit www.showmyip.co.uk then the IP address it shows is the public IP address for the mobile network.   The mobile network IP address is shared over many other different user devices.  As a result, you will be unable to connect to your router and connected devices because your normal data SIM has a private IP address. To get a standard Data SIM card obtained directly from the mobile network then you would probably need to have a VPN server at your head office and configure each of your 4G routers as VPN clients to connect to your head office server. As a result, the IP address allocated to your SIM connection will be a private IP on the mobile network. This means that you can’t use Dynamic DNS / DDNS because the IP address that the router reports to your DYNDNS service will be the private one which is behind the actual public IP address on the mobile provider’s network. To use Dynamic DNS / DDNS you will require a Fixed IP SIM Card with Public IP Address.  This allows you to connect to a router and connected IoT devices from any computer connected to the internet.  After inserting the SIM, you have to configure the M2M APN with inbound port filtering.  As a result, you get a fixed public IP connection to allow remote access to your devices. Fixed IP SIM Cards with Public IP address M2M Data Connect offers mobile data SIM cards with a public IP address.  This means that once you insert your SIM card into your 4G router and have correctly configured your SIM Card APN settings the router will connect to the 4G network.   This gives you a publicly available IP address that never changes. Your router will then connect to the  Internet connection with a fixed, public IP address you can communicate to the router directly from anywhere on the Internet and then use port forwarding to connect to your devices on the LAN.  When using a fixed IP SIM card with a public IP address ensure that your 4G router firewall settings are correctly configured because your router will be exposed to the internet.  Many routers will have advanced features and restrict inbound connections to a single IP address or IP address range. Fixed IP SIM Applications Fixed IP SIM applications for business-critical requirements depend on secure remote management and resilient communication.  There are many applications that need fixed IP, there are just some of them: IP CCTV cameras Mobile POS Digital signage Site to site 4G connections Vending machines Tracking devices Secure remote management Smart meters Fleet management systems Remote media Wind turbines Wireless internet mobile workforces At M2M Data Connect, we offer a selection of connectivity services IoT Connectivity from our fixed IP SIM packages, so you can be certain to get the complete M2M data connectivity solution to suit your business, at competitive prices.
