Has the product reached the customer? Where is the next e-scooter? When is the optimal maintenance time for a goods lift to avoid an unplanned standstill? To answer all these and many other questions, more and more devices are generating more and more data that has to be transmitted somewhere. Mobile radio is particularly suitable for wireless transmission, as it is available almost everywhere in the world and is also cheap. There are already SIM cards that have been specially developed for these smart devices. These so-called machine-to-machine (M2M) SIM cards have many advantages that should greatly simplify the complexity of IoT projects. One of the suppliers of these special SIM cards is wherever SIM GmbH from Hamburg. At HANNOVER MESSE 2023, the Hanseatic company will be presenting all that is possible with its solutions.

Advantages especially in the area of remote and predictive maintenance

wherever sees a very special added value from M2M SIM cards in the area of remote and predictive maintenance. Here, they can help to reduce unplanned downtimes of IoT devices and machines and thus increase efficiency through the uninterrupted remote access they enable. With the help of the M2M SIM cards, users can remotely access the information they need from their PC via the mobile network. A private network (private APN) ensures security for this access, as each of the M2M SIM cards has a private IP address that is only known within the network.

From remote summits to offshore platforms

Exemplary for the advantages mentioned are wind power and solar plants in particular for wherever SIM. Since these plants are often located in remote locations or in offshore wind farms on the high seas, they are usually difficult for technicians and service staff to reach. Here, M2M SIM cards are preferred to maintain the plants and control the production output. The cards transmit the necessary data to the operator and establish the connection to devices and plants via mobile networks.

Cooperation with the mobile networks of Telekom, Vodafone and o2

In Germany, wherever SIM works with the three major mobile networks of Telekom, Vodafone and o2. All three networks can be used with SIM cards from wherever SIM, ensuring the best possible connection to the mobile network at the respective location.

Currently, more than 1,000 successful IoT projects have been implemented with companies such as Hewlett-Packard, Büttner, DM Drogerie Märkte, SEAT, Horsch, Beumer Group and MER. Combined with flexible data tariffs that are always geared to the needs of the project, the M2M experts from wherever SIM promise to find the right solution for every project.
