Module-software embedded SIM to speed cellular IoT rollout

June 19, 2017 // By Julien Happich
Telit Communications PLC and Tele2 have co-developed a cellular module-embedded SIM technology dubbed simWISE, which the companies expect could act as a replacement or complement for manufacturers of cellular-connected devices using traditional SIM card and tray, lowering the total cost of ownership.

Using simWISE, manufacturers of connected products could significantly reduce time to market, complexity, while improving customer experience. This initial release of simWISE for mass market 2G devices is the first step in Telit’s roadmap to deliver a broad set of innovative technologies related to embedded connectivity that will expand across the product portfolio. The module-software embedded SIM technology is expected to contribute to the mass-rollout of Cellular IoT technology, in particular LPWA offerings such as LTE-M and NB-IoT.
