Managed IoT Connectivity

How can IoT connectivity help your business?

Whatever industry you’re in, IoT connectivity enables you to intelligently connect your business.

Collect data from your devices and transfer it over our world-leading IoT connectivity networks to our Managed IoT Connectivity Platform. We give you visibility and control of your IoT SIMs and devices anywhere within our global footprint. We make IoT simple to deploy and manage. Use IoT connectivity to reduce the cost of operations, automate processes and develop new business models or enter new markets.

IoT SIM cards

Whether you’re putting SIMs into devices or integrating a SIM into a product, we offer traditional SIM cards and an evolved portfolio supported by new technologies.

An IoT SIM card typically comes in one of the following formats:

Vodafone Business Global SIM

(Standard, robust, industrial and automotive-grade SIM cards in multiple formats)

We have one Global SIM that gives access to +580 networks. You can find it in standard (for handheld applications and conditions) and robust (hardened for tougher conditions such as temperature, humidity, vibrations and longer lifetime) grades. Industrial SIMs are soldered directly into terminals, perfect for extreme environments. Automotive-grade SIMs are the toughest SIM cards, specifically designed for automotive uses.

Vodafone Business Integrated SIM (iSIM) for LPWA

The Vodafone Business Global IoT Integrated SIM is stored on the chipset and installed at the device manufacture point, resulting in the reduction of manual provisioning, battery life and module costs. iSIMs are particularly effective for large-scale IoT deployments, especially when combined with LPWA networks. For example, smart labels containing iSIMs can be used to track parcels through their journey.

Additional capabilities and services:

Vodafone Business Global SIM+

This Global SIM variant ensures that the changing market rules on roaming or connectivity do not disrupt businesses, as it provides improved customer experience and seamless connectivity management in highly regulated markets.

Vodafone Business embedded SIM (eSIM)

eSIM is a capability that enables SIMs of any type to switch from one connectivity provider to another over the air, without the need to physically change the SIM. Embedded SIMs have a longer lifetime, however, it’s more difficult to physically access them. Vodafone offers several GSMA-based eSIM propositions.
