Additions and changes to the Twilio platform
Super SIM now has one more location of our Distributed IoT Mobile Core in Singapore, to provide an Internet breakout for IoT customers in the APAC region. With this new location, Twilio has three Internet breakouts for Super SIM traffic: in Ashburn, Frankfurt, and Singapore, with more locations to follow.
Using distributed breakout to the Internet is important to achieve low latency, which opens up new use cases such as adding real time voice/video communications to an IoT device. In addition, it means less data crossing borders, and thus helps with data sovereignty.
To make use of the breakout location in Singapore, Super SIM customers must configure “sg1.super” as the APN on the devices (see Super SIM APN configuration). The existing default APN “super”, when used, results in traffic breaking out to the Internet via our mobile core in Ashburn, USA. When “de1.super” is used, the traffic breaks out to the Internet through our mobile core in Frankfurt.
If you are interested in using the Singapore Internet breakout location, please reach out to Twilio support.
