All You need to know about Fixed IP M2M / IoT Sim Cards

In the world of networking technology, the terms Machine-to-Machine (or “M2M) and the Internet of Things (IoT) are often used interchangeably. However, there are subtle differences between the two systems.

M2M technology is based on two-way radio networks that emerged at the start of the 20th century. With the pervasive growth of the internet and global data connectivity, M2M technologies have entered a new era, offering remarkable solutions to our modern, business communication needs.

Whereas M2M refers to the connection of devices and applications, IoT is the network of all our M2M connections and devices. Simply put, IoT is an extension of M2M systems which is why you’ll often hear the two concepts being used interchangeably; especially when it comes to a business acquisition.

M2M / IoT technologies offer a variety of communication and connectivity solutions to our clients – Low-Latency Global and Fixed IP Connectivity, to name a few. Today, we will be focusing on the benefits of Fixed IP SIM cards for your business.

What are Fixed IP SIM Cards

If you check the details of your IP address on using your Standard Data SIM, you will notice that the IP address it shows is the public IP address for the mobile network. This mobile network IP address is shared over many other different user devices, restraining your ability to use Dynamic DNS / DDNS or connect to your router and connected devices because your normal data SIM has a private IP address.

At Euro International Communication, we offer Fixed-IP solutions to our clients, at competitive rates, giving them a publicly available IP address that never changes. This will allow you to use your router directly from anywhere on the Internet and then use port forwarding to connect to your devices on the LAN. When using a fixed IP SIM card with a public IP address ensure that your 4G router firewall settings are correctly configured because your router will be exposed to the internet. Many routers will have advanced features and restrict inbound connections to a single IP address or IP address range.

Fixed IP SIM Applications

Fixed IP SIM cards are used across various businesses that require secure remote management and resilient communication.

There are many applications that need fixed IP, such as:
