The key to running a fleet of reliably connected IoT devices is having the right amount of insight, such as where SIMs are connecting, what networks are rejecting connections, and which SIMs are going rogue in terms of data usage. Without that, you are essentially building your business on hope, not knowledge—a risky proposition.
Performance insight is key
Super SIM is Twilio’s new cellular IoT connectivity platform, offering almost 400 worldwide cellular networks on one SIM. With Super SIM, one of the guiding principles of the product from day one was providing visibility into what’s happening “under the hood” when SIMs try to connect to networks. To help businesses grow and expand their IoT deployments, we created a reliable IoT SIM solution offering global reach, which allows companies to select exactly which networks their device should connect to in each country. So we built our own mobile network core—the …
Global IoT connectivity you can trust
I’m excited to announce that Super SIM has entered public beta. Super SIM is what happens when you approach cellular IoT connectivity the Twilio way — combining Twilio’s Super Network of global telecom carriers with the power of software in the cloud — in this case, a cloud based Mobile Core network. Super SIM will enable IoT builders to take control of connectivity in nearly every country in the world, at massive operational scale.
Moving cellular connectivity from hardware to the cloud
There’s a movement happening in IoT. You’ve probably seen the on-demand scooters and bikes transforming our cities. Cars are increasingly fitted with connected dash-cams. Maybe you’ve noticed capacity sensors in public trash cans and in parking spaces. IoT outside the home is booming, but the connectivity ecosystem has been woefully unprepared, causing headaches for developers and slowing innovation.
Why do I say …
