Frequently Asked Questions

What is an IoT SIM card?

Unlike a traditional SIM, an IoT SIM card is designed to send and receive data rather than enable voice calls. With more memory and durability than their consumer counterparts, IoT SIM cards also last longer—up to 10 years or more. They’re able to withstand environmental challenges like vibration, corrosion, and extreme temperatures.

How do IoT SIM cards work?

An IoT SIM card contains a contact chip encased in plastic. The chip stores distinctive information about the device, such as credentials and carrier data, and links the device to the network. IoT SIM cards are able to operate more independently than consumer SIMs. Unlike traditional SIMs, they don’t need human interaction on the device side to be activated. Some IoT SIMs can be provisioned remotely with eUICC (embedded universal integrated circuit card) technology.

Are IoT SIM cards tied to a single carrier network?

It depends on the card, but many (including Hologram’s Global SIM card and Hyper card) are capable of multi-network connectivity. That means your devices can connect to the best networks available locally, no matter where they roam in the world.

Which form factors do IoT SIM cards come in?

IoT SIM cards come in all the traditional form factors: 2FF, 3FF, and 4FF. You can also choose MFF2 if you want the SIM to be embedded in your device and to include over the air (OTA) provisioning capabilities.

What should I look for in an IoT SIM card provider?

Depending on your use case, look for a provider that:
Supports flexible, carrier-agnostic global connectivity for your device 
Helps you scale easily
Offers an easy-to-use device management platform
Provides eUICC capabilities
Has clear-cut pricing, such as a pay-as-you-go model
