So if you require secure two-way communication, over-the-air (OTA) SIM activation, LPWAN connectivity or multi-network capabilities, we have your business covered. And if you’re looking for more control, combine your InfiSIM solution with our advanced M2M SIM management platform, NOVA, for full visibility of your SIM estate.

M2M stands for Machine to Machine communication and it is the direct connection between two or more devices. There are endless applications of M2M technology, including payment terminals, pet tracking, smart street lighting, and many, many more.

Modern Machine to Machine communication has evolved into a system of networks in which data is traversed between devices. Information is sent from one device (or machine) via a central hub, before it reaches another device such as a mobile or computer. By traversing data between devices in this way, we are able to automate tasks and manage our operations remotely, increasing productivity.

Over the past 2 decades, mobile networks have expanded around the globe and the speed of M2M connectivity has greatly increased. This has worked hand-in-hand with the rapid growth of IoT technologies that provide remote, fast solutions to end-user issues.

M2M SIM cards enable IoT devices (smart devices) to communicate with one another and traverse data across multiple networks, allowing businesses to scale their operations in a cost-effective way. From vehicle tracking to remote sensors and medical devices, M2M SIM cards are connecting the world of IoT.

M2M SIMs provide the connectivity required to automate processes. When we want two or more devices to communicate, they must do so using a data connection. In most cases it wouldn’t be wise to utilise a standard mobile SIM as this form of connection doesn’t provide the critical functionalities that IoT SIM cards provide.

All M2M solutions require an end-device that collects data (usually via a sensor or tracker), some form of connectivity to traverse the data, and another machine that receives this data. Once your second machine has received the data, it is either interpreted by software, people or the device itself, or it is relayed onto another machine.

A good example of M2M in the real-world would be a smart fridge. Smart fridges use sensors to analyse the contents of your fridge and ensure that you never forget to restock. When you are running low on a specific item, the fridge will add it to a virtual shopping list which will be automatically sent to your smartphone. In this situation, the data being traversed is related to the items on your virtual shopping list. Similarly, your smart fridge can analyse increases in temperature. If it detects a sudden rise, it will send the temperature data to your smartphone in the form of an alert. This way you can react and ensure that your fridge is closed properly.

Most M2M systems are usually made up of some or all of the following:

  • Sensors
  • Wi-Fi or mobile communications link
  • RFID (radio frequency identification) or NFC (near-field communication)
  • Computing software that helps a device make informed decisions

All M2M solutions require some form of connectivity to operate. Although some wired connections are considered to be M2M connections, most are wireless.

M2M SIM cards allow your machines to connect via the mobile networks. This enables you to deploy your devices anywhere in the world where there is cellular connectivity. For this reason, connecting your machines via the mobile networks is the most popular method of deploying an M2M solution. Solutions such as fleet tracking, digital motorway signage and remote CCTV etc. simply wouldn’t work without a mobile network connection.

M2M SIM security

IoT Security is of the utmost importance when it comes to reducing the risk of your IoT devices being compromised. A private APN can be used to enable the secure M2M connection of provisioned IoT devices to your corporate network. By preventing your IoT infrastructure from being exposed to the entire public internet, you can rest assured that your vulnerability is kept to a minimum.

An IPSec VPN can also be applied to your M2M deployment in order to link two private networks over the public internet. The IPSec VPN does this securely by encrypting and authenticating all of the traffic being passed through the tunnel. Talk to our team to find out how InfiSIM can help maximise the security of your IoT solutions.

Know the difference.

Steered vs non-steered M2M SIMs for your IoT devices

Unsteered or non-steered SIMs are multi-network SIM cards that are open to connecting to multiple networks whilst prioritising the one with the strongest signal. They are different to steered multi-network SIMs which are programmed to default to a parent network, even if a stronger network is available. At InfiSIM, all of our multi-network M2M solutions are unsteered.

If international connectivity is critical to your business operations, look no further than our multi-network International M2M SIM cards. Our unsteered multi-carrier SIMs are open to connecting to the strongest network available and can provide connectivity in more than 200 countries via 400+ cellular networks. So if you have an upcoming IoT project for 100, 1000 or 10000+ M2M SIM cards and you require uninterrupted connectivity abroad, we’ll work with you to build the most effective and cost-efficient solution for your deployment.

As a UK-based M2M connectivity provider, we cover all of the major networks within the United Kingdom. What’s more, our multi-network solutions are non-steered, meaning they will never default to a parent network.

All of our UK M2M SIMs can be viewed and managed in our industry-leading M2M connectivity management platform, NOVA.

Any size for any IoT application.

M2M SIMs come in multiple sizes

2FF SIM card

Mini SIM (2FF)

2FF is the most frequent size of M2M SIM that is used. It can frequently be found in large white goods, payment terminals and vehicles.

3FF SIM card

Micro SIM (3FF)

Micro SIMs are approximately 50% of the size of the 2FF SIMs. These are frequently found in mobile devices, smart watches and other wearable tech.

Nano SIM (4FF)

4FF is the smallest removable M2M SIM you can use. These are usually found in tiny devices that require small components.

Embedded SIM (MFF2)

Embedded SIM cards are non-removable components that are soldered to the circuit board of a device. These are often deployed in scenarios where manufacturers want to prevent end-users from accessing their SIM cards. eUICC SIMs are often delivered in this form factor, giving manufacturers and/or end-users the ability to provision SIMs remotely OTA (over the air).

“We are market leaders in the manufacturing of mechanised forestry equipment. These machines run complex control systems for real time decision making during the processing of each tree and to collect vast amounts of sensor data related to machine performance. Machines are deployed to the most remote areas of the UK usually for several months at a time.

This presented a problem for our telematics software connections used for remote support sessions and general data traffic to and from our servers. We trialled several solutions with other suppliers with very little success due to reliability and stability of the products offered.

I researched and found InfiSIM who couldn’t have been more helpful. Their knowledge about their product was very impressive and gave me the confidence to authorise a few trials. We were receiving data from our machines when we couldn’t even get a proper phone signal. Perfect!

We now have over 100 machines running our telematics software and we often receive compliments that we are now also the market leaders in the telematics within our industry. This wouldn’t have been possible without the InfiSIM product.

Our InfiSIM products are monitored through NOVA. This system is brilliant and saves huge amounts of time managing the SIMs.”
