A fixed IP SIM card is a data SIM with fixed or static IP address. A Fixed IP SIM’s IP address can be used to locate the SIM in order to initiate communication from an external device or to identify the SIM as being valid for authentication purposes to a firewall or restricted service. Uses for a fixed or static IP SIM include remote management, monitoring and control, M2M (Machine to Machine) or for remote access to a corporate network.

You can use a fixed IP SIM card for many different applications. A few of those include:

  • The remote management of control systems and devices over the 3G and 4G networks
  • CCTV surveillance and monitoring for mobile and portable applications
  • Renewable Energy
  • Remote support and maintenance
  • Temporary branch offices incorporated into a corporate network
  • Rapid deployment offices and remote sites
  • Office locations with little or no fixed line broadband capability
  • Back-up to fixed line broadband as a fail-over for business continuity
  • Access to Cloud based services and applications requiring a fixed IP for authentication e.g. some hosted VoIP services
  • Smart metering
  • Internet of Things (IoT) applications
  • Secure and bespoke mobile networks using private fixed IP address ranges and VPN encryption technology
  • Create a single function tablet or computer by restricting internet connectivity to a specific application(s)
