What is a fixed IP SIM Card?

Fixed IP SIM cards are similar to regular M2M SIMs except they are equipped with a single, static IP address rather than a dynamic IP address. Having an IP address that never changes allows for direct, one-to-one connectivity between devices.

Why do I need a fixed IP SIM Card?

Fixed IP SIM cards play a big role in M2M connectivity. M2M is the process of two or more machines communicating with one another, and fixed IP addresses enable these machines to maintain a direct connection. They are widely used in IoT solutions where remote management is key, including remote CCTV, digital signage, and smart metering.

Why is a fixed IP address important for M2M?

A fixed IP address allows for secure and reliable two-way communications. That means that you don’t need to wait for your IoT-connected device to send its data, you can remotely access the device and retrieve the information you need. This information can be collected securely, no matter where you are.

Fixed IP SIM cards guarantee you greater visibility and control over your connected devices, with complete end-to-end security and encryption. In contrast, standard mobile SIMs are provisioned by the networks with dynamic IP addresses – these change every time the mobile connects to the network, so you can’t rely on being able to access the devices at any time.

This functionality is hugely important for certain applications of M2M, and it’s only available when using a SIM with a static or fixed IP address.

Fixed IP SIM cards | FAQs

Fixed IP SIMs are exactly the same as static IP SIMs. Most IoT connectivity providers use these terms interchangeably, so don’t be alarmed if you hear one rather than the other.

Unlike fixed IP addresses, dynamic IP addresses are temporary. When a device connects to a network, an IP address is pulled from a pool of IP addresses and assigned to that device. Every now and then these IP addresses are put back in the pool and your device will be reassigned with another IP address.

Fixed IP addresses are permanent IP addresses that never change. These are widely used within the IoT industry to enable the remote management of devices. Although dynamic IP solutions are often more cost-effective than deploying static IPs, they don’t come with some of the key benefits required by many IoT solutions.

Fixed IP SIM cards tend to be a little bit more expensive than standard M2M connections. However, they come with some key benefits that can only be achieved with a fixed IP address or an IPsec VPN.

The cost of your fixed IP solution is dependant on a number of factors, including the quantity of SIM cards you require, how much data you require, and where in the world you require connectivity. For this reason, we tailor all of our pricing for our fixed IP solutions to meet the unique requirements of your project. This way we are able to provide the most effective and cost-efficient solution to your business.

Fixed IP addresses are actually less secure than dynamic IP addresses when used over the public internet. This is because dynamic IP addresses constantly change, making it much harder for hackers to get hold of. However, when combined with a private APN, Fixed IP addresses become much more more secure as they can’t be seen externally from your network.

How is the 2G & 3G sunset affecting fixed IP connectivity solutions?

All 2G and 3G networks around the world are being terminated to make way for newer 5G technologies. It’s important that your fixed IP SIM card deployments utilise futureproof connectivity protocols in order to avoid unscheduled downtime and additional costs for replacement services.
