Learn more about our simcards

The standard simcards are suitable for stationary objects in normal circumstances when it comes to (e.g.) temperature or humidity.The industrial simcards are recommended for moving objects, smart metering applications and other similar things (under more extreme conditions).

Although, a standard simcard can have a lifetime of more than 10 years, the default lifetime is estimated on 2 - 5 years where the default lifetime of an industrial simcard is estimated at 5 - 10 years. These calculations are based on the expectation that there will be frequent sim activity (which should not be the case for LPWA).

You can find more details about our simcards below.
