Frequently asked questions about M2M

What is M2M?

M2M (Machine-to-Machine) communication enables remote monitoring and management of installations, equipment, and sensors. In order to communicate, these devices are equipped with an M2M simcard or also called an IoT simcard. The data is then read out via 4/3/2G and routed to the cloud. With M2M simcards you can make business processes and services more efficiënt, save costs and create new business models.

How does it exactly works?

With M2M communication, data is accessed from a device. A secured M2M simcard is placed in a device. The APN provided by us must be configured in the device settings. The intelligent M2M simcard then has access to the 4/3/2G radio network of several networks. The device can then establish a successful connection and is assigned an IP address.

What can I do with a sim management system?

A sim management system is a web-based environment in which all M2M simcards are clearly arranged. M2M applications often involve monitoring and managing several tens to thousands of M2M simcards. Specific management platforms have been designed for this where you have full control, which offer our customers the possibility to apply inventory management, real-time insight and lifecycle management.
