IMEI Lock

An IMEI is the unique identification number of the modem in your device. Our IMEI-lock can ensure the SIM card is only used within your device. This prevents any data usage costs in case your SIM may get stolen.

Highest Security

Whether sensitive or critical data, with wherever SIM you have a wide selection of options to protect your data.

You can limit the access of the SIM to certain IP addresses to guarantee that your SIM only transfers data to IP addresses you configured. In addition, you can set up a VPN tunnel and choose whether the SIM cards should only be able to communicate via this VPN, or whether Internet access should also be allowed.

Firewall

Each of our customers gets his own private network segment. Through this, we ensure that nobody else can access your data. Other providers make you pay for your own APN. We offer it for free and by default for everyone.

Your private network (APN)

VPN & static IPs

Secure the communication between the SIM and your system via VPN tunnel. You just need to establish one common VPN to our system to be able to access all of your SIM cards.

Major advantages

  • All your data will be transferred securely through the internet.
  • We will provide a static private IP address for each of your devices so you can easily reach each device via IP.
  • We can block all other traffic from your devices to the internet and from the internet to your devices. Only traffic through this VPN is allowed. This makes your devices unreachable for hackers.
  • You don’t even need a firewall or VPN software on your devices, which saves cpu power and implementation effort.

Easy to Manage

Within our intuitive online portal, you can manage all your GSM SIM cards and set individual configurations like IMEI-lock or consumption limits. You can also activate or deactivate your SIM cards and get an overview of all relevant information and consumption data.

Real-time Monitoring

Which SIM consumes most data? How many SMS have been sent? Is there any device that is offline? Find the answers to your questions in the online portal and keep an eye on all important data in real-time. Even your configurations are directly adapted as soon as you set them within the online portal, so you can immediately see the impacts of your settings.

Automate your Business processes

Every single setting can also be configured via our easy to implement REST-API instead of the online portal. This enables you to integrate our SIM card in your automated business processes.

Operator Blacklisting

Some devices or some locations might cause problems with certain network operators. To avoid this, you can block specific network operators individually for each of your devices easily in our customer portal.

Data Pool

Some of your devices might use less data than others, some of them might use much more. We know that it can be nearly impossible to predict that. Traditional mobile providers probably force you to buy the maximum amount of data a single SIM card will ever use, all data not used expires at the end of each month.

A simple solution

Good we’re not traditional! We offer a fair alternative, the Data Pool. With our Data Pool, all your SIM cards consume data from a shared pool. If the usage of one SIM card increases during a month, you are not invoiced for this, as long as the average usage per SIM card stays below your general data limit.

Messaging

Sending and receiving SMS and USSD messages made easy. Also via API for integration into your automated business processes.

SMS

wherever SIM is also able to send as well as receive SMS. This way it is e.g. possible to send SMS to configure your device.

Within the online portal it is also possible to send SMS directly to any of your devices. Additionally you can integrate our REST-API to send SMS to your devices or receive SMS from your devices on your Server.

If you wish, you can receive sent SMS as an email. This way you can make older devices smarter, which cannot establish a data connection but can send SMS.

USSD

USSD is a pretty unknown but reliable technology. It works similar to SMS but is much cheaper. We support USSD for both directions. If you need to send less than 140 characters, have a look at USSD instead of SMS!

Technologies and form factors

We know that every project has different needs and that no device is the same. Therefore wherever SIM supports various cellular standards and form factors.

  • 2G (GPRS)
  • EDGE
  • 3G (UMTS)
  • HSPA and HSPA+
