eSIM for IIoT and LPWAN

SIM on chip or eSIM cards do the exact same job as a normal IoT SIM card. Neverthelesss, eSIM cards are permanently stored inside a device. An eSIM is usually attached by soldering to the PCB. eSIMs prevent people from tampering with the device or changing the device it sits in. This helps enhance the security and durability of the solution. These eSIM cards are compatible with most IoT devices and akorIoT PCBs. They offer a better temperature range and they are non sensitive aggainst vibration. eSIMs support NB-IoT, LTEM, GSM, UMTS and LTE.
If you run a company then do not hesitate to ask for eSIMs or standard IoT SIM cards with harald.naumann (at) lte-modem.com
