EU & Global SIM cards
SIM CARD SERVICE TYPES
STEERED VS. NON-STEERED
Non-steered Cards have no logic on the SIM that prefers a particular provider, unless
upon request. As a result, the SIM card doesn’t have a primary network.
The advantage of using a non-steered SIM is that no individual network has priority.
This allows to seamlessly change between networks. The benefit of using non-steered
SIM is they are more flexible and effective. And they are very beneficial of
implementing Global IoT/M2M applications.
Steered SIM Cards use one primary network that only steers to another if the network
drops. This one primary network has preference over all other networks that may be
available. A steered SIM doesn’t prioritize the strongest connection available.
POOLABLE vs. NON-POOLABLE
Poolable SIM cards can be used together over several devices and use the rate of a
subscribed volume pool.
Non-Poolable SIM cards are limited to their individual bundle
