But nowadays, it’s all nods of agreement. It’s widely acknowledged that there are big differences between the many forms of cellular connectivity; and terms like mobile broadband, managed, smart, and single-network are all now commonplace in our industry.
And in a world with more than enough confusing acronyms, the term ‘Multi-network SIM’ is refreshingly self-explanatory—it’s a SIM that roams across multiple networks. The ‘unsteered’ element simply means that strong connectivity is the SIMs top priority, instead of preferring one network; unlike steered SIMs, which cling to their preferred network like their life depends on it!
There are plenty of ways to spot a Multi-net opportunity… and plenty of great questions that’ll open up the conversation.
Mobile network coverage dips in and out across the UK. Use a Multi-network SIM and sleep easy, knowing you’ve got the best 4G signal wherever you may be.
Network downtime last year cost UK businesses 60 million hours and £742m, through planned and unplanned outages. Take a Multi-net SIM and protect your business from them!
Don’t rely on one network when you can have them all. Cover your solution with the best signal across all networks.
You could reduce costs by connecting to a specific network in one country when roaming, for example. This is all done remotely over the air, which is a convenient time saver (if your device is compatible, that is).
Coverage checks for multi-site deployments take time; and they can’t detect on-site variables that might mess with a network’s signal, like plant foliage or building materials.
Why not use Multi-net and let the SIM do all the hard work? It’ll automatically connect to the strongest network in each of your locations. Easy!
It’s true that most Multi-net SIMs have a priority network that they’ll cling to, even when stronger signals are available. Not the case with ours—our SIMs are completely unsteered; they only connect to a network based on its signal strength!
Nasty! Luckily all our Multi-net services are fully managed, so you can see your usage in real-time with the Pangea Portal. Request reports, set up notifications, and place usage caps as and how you need!
Not to mention: you can aggregate all your data into a single shared pool, so you don’t need to worry about having loads of separate usage caps.
Fear not! Our Multi-network SIMs can be paired with a unique IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) that link them to a device—meaning they can only be used in the solution they’re intended for.
We offer a choice of dynamic, private static, or public static IPs addresses on all our Multi-net services.
