Sierra Wireless, a subsidiary of Semtech Corporation and world leading IoT solutions provider, announced the introduction of Smart Connectivity Premium with eUICC capabilities, and extended connectivity coverage in the United States.
With universal coverage across geographies and technologies with one global SIM, Smart Connectivity Premium provides resilient IoT managed connectivity that is future proofed with its multi-IMSI, multi-profile design enabled by GSMA eSIM (eUICC) specifications. The SIM dynamically switches between profiles and networks when one becomes unreachable, offering maximum coverage and built-in failover in over 190 countries. Further, it provides customers with access to all three leading carrier networks in the U.S.
“eUICC software allows for increased flexibility in consumer and industrial use cases, with both sectors benefitting from the enhanced network coverage realised by eSIM connectivity,” said Scarlett Woodford, Principal Analyst, Juniper Research. “Within the IoT space, a connected device benefits from the same level of coverage whilst roaming as it would when connected to its local network. IoT stakeholders will benefit from the profile swap and localisation abilities afforded by eSIM technology. That is, eSIMs will allow roaming devices to download local profiles, enabling logistics managers to monitor these profiles remotely.”
