Unlike an ordinary SIM card that you put in a mobile phone, a Fixed IP SIM Card is provisioned with an IP address. As a result, this type of SIM card enables the user to maintain an active two-way connection.
The IP Address can be of two types, dynamic and static. The static or the fixed address never changes. It remains the same every time the device connects and disconnects. Whereas dynamic IP address will change each time you connect, as a result, this is type is not suitable for many IoT applications.
Another benefit of a fixed IP SIM card is that you don't need to wait for your IoT connected device to send its data, You can remotely access the device and retrieve information when you require it.
JT IoT fixed IP SIM cards guarantee greater visibility and control over IoT devices, along with complete end-to-end security and encryption.
Different Types of Fixed IP SIM card
There are three types of Fixed IP SIM cards available from JT IoT:
JT Fixed Private IP Standard Model provides the most secure method. These SIMs are provided with fixed private internet protocols. After inserting the SIM, you have to configure the JT secure APN. To establish the secure connection the fixed private IP SIM requires a VPN from your network to the JT core network. Only when the VPN is established will you be able to access your router and devices.
The JT Fixed Private IP Custom Model uses the same method as the standard model. But, IoT devices uses a Customer defined APN and IP address. Once the configuration is complete, the router will be connected to the internet network and it can be accessed from any location through the internet by using the customers fixed IP address that has been added to the JT IoT SIM card.
JT Fixed Public Model provides you with a public IP address. This allows you to connect to a router and connected IoT devices from any computer connected to the internet. After inserting the SIM, you have to configure the JT APN with inbound port filtering. As a result, you get a fixed public IP connection to allow remote access to your devices.
These types of SIMS are available both in 4G as well as 3G. You can select the type of SIM as per the required speed of the internet needed for your IoT application.
Fixed IP SIM Applications
There are many fixed IP SIM applications that have business-critical requirements. These depend on secure remote management and resilient communication. Here are some of the current applications that need fixed IP:
- IP CCTV cameras
- Vending machines
- Asset management
- Tracking devices
- Mobile POS
- Smart meters
- Fleet management systems
- Digital signage
- Remote media
- Site to site 4G connections
- Secure remote management
- Wind turbines
- Wireless internet mobile workforces
What Makes JT IoT Fixed IP SIMs Different?
The JT IoT Fixed IP SIM uses non-steered, open roaming technology. Once the secure APN is set up within an IoT device, the SIM connects to the strongest network available.
