The discontinuation of AT&T’s 2G services had severe implications for several companies that depended on its 2G network for M2M connectivity. Consequently, these companies needed to undertake expensive hardware upgrades to 3G or LTE devices to continue using AT&T’s network. In most cases, the cost of upgrading proved to be unfeasible and for devices designed to operate on 2G networks, the faster speeds of LTE were not essential. OneSimCard offers its M2M SIM card, which operates on T-Mobile’s 2G networks via the OneSimCard platform, an alternative for companies that intend to continue using their 2G devices. “We offer virtual private network, private application performance management, and static IP addresses for enhanced security along with custom SIM management platform and billing system,” adds Filippov.
OneSimCard provides global roaming services and coverage through its agreement with network operators worldwide. Traditionally, roaming involves registering SIM cards on the network with the least cost operator, neglecting network quality; but M2M devices require consistent network coverage, especially for fleet management and tracking.
We leverage over four hundred different networks around the world to provide better coverage
“We decided to remove steering of roaming altogether to ensure best possible coverage,” remarks Filippov. Devices with OneSimCard M2M will register on the network with the best signal strength in an area. When existing network coverage becomes unavailable, the handover to a new network happens instantly, resulting in seamless, uninterrupted connectivity.
For enterprise users, device manufacturers, and distributors, OneSimCard M2M offers advanced solutions for connected vehicles, asset tracking, supply chain tracking, wearables, meter monitoring, digital advertising, smart homes, and any other segment requiring a GSM connection. OneSimCard specializes in designing solutions for users that require thousands of SIM cards to as few as ten SIM cards. Users can access the administrative web portal on the OneSimCard platform to manage multiple SIM cards with a single account. They can track and limit expenses, and receive notifications about high data consumption. In addition, they can also create customized web portals for SIM management and billing on OneSimCard’s versatile and device agnostic platform.
“We are the connecting unit that collects information from networks, delivers it to end users, and provides a service that they would not receive otherwise,” states Filippov. OneSimCard offers robust services around the globe that the weakest point of coverage is 75 percent in Africa. The company provides a vast range of cost-effective services and redundancy for M2M communication on 2G, 3G, and LTE networks, and is on a mission to deliver quality service by leveraging advanced technologies like NarrowBand IOT technology.
