  • It has been designed to connect IoT devices and provide services in rugged environments
  • It offers a special coating and improved chip characteristics to limit erosion and resist extremities

A leading provider of advanced Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity worldwide, Soracom, Inc., recently announced the addition of an industrial-grade SIM card to its portfolio of IoT SIM and eSIM solutions. With this add-on, the company pointed out that, its offerings include both standard and industrial-grade eSIMs and SIM cards, as well as iSIM capability. According to the released statement, the new Industrial SIM is fully compatible with current GSMA M2M eUICC specifications and provides pay-per-use cellular data including 2G, 3G, 4G, LTE, and Cat-M1 coverage where available in over 160 countries. Claiming that it supports Mini, Micro or Nano form factors (2FF, 3FF or 4FF), the note added that it offers a special coating and improved chip characteristics to limit erosion and resist extremes of temperature, humidity, and vibration.

This Industrial SIM card is designed for M2M/IoT applications where environmental conditions demand a rugged solution and a card-type SIM is preferred to an eSIM. As per the company, its connectivity management platform and API will be accessible for free, along with a bunch of cloud-native platform services to accelerate IoT deployment at scale.

CTO and Co-Founder of Soracom, Kenta Yasukawa remarked, “Every day, we help customers around the world and across industries offload heavy lifting to the cloud on terms that make sense for IoT. An industrial-grade SIM card with eUICC capabilities complements our industrial IoT eSIM offerings and lets our customers deploy connected solutions seamlessly in challenging environments, ensuring optimal form factors and maximum durability tailored to their use cases.”

“Feed manufacturers across North America trust BinSentry to monitor thousands of feed bins, automate inventory and improve decision-making. In these rugged environments, our gear faces rapid temperature changes, and constant dust and vibration. We have tried many IoT SIM cards and if it can’t resist failure in these conditions, we can’t use it. Soracom’s industrial SIM delivers a connection we can count on, and Soracom’s smart lifecycle management allows us to optimize our network for performance and cost,” commented Nathan Hoel, CTO and Co-Founder of BinSentry.

IoT cellular connectivity provider Soracom provides connectivity for businesses in smart IoT agriculture, energy, consumer, manufacturing, transportation, and medical industries globally. The company was founded in 2015 with a mission to accelerate global connection by democratizing the technologies technical innovators will need to create new products, services, and experiences.
