What is a Fixed IP 3G Data SIM?
A Fixed IP 3G Data SIM allows for the two-way transmission of data (not voice) – for example from generating equipment, CCTV remote access, smart metering, etc – between any location.
How does it work?
Data is transmitted over the 3G mobile network using a special data SIM card which has been given a dedicated IP address.
What are the benefits?
Because Prodec Networks has its own APN, a transmission from a Fixed IP 3G Data SIM has priority over other SIMs, therefore providing a better, more reliable connection. Ideal for areas with limited access to the internet, a Fixed IP Data SIM connection is also wireless, non-geographic, portable and quick to deploy.
Why choose Prodec Networks?
Prodec Networks is an established expert in the provision of Fixed IP 3G Data SIM connectivity solutions, and has teamed up with mobile operators Vodafone and Three, which understand the machine-to-machine (M2M) market and have wide network coverage.
Fixed IP 3G Data SIM cards from Prodec Networks are dedicated data SIMs and should not be confused with the dynamic IP SIMs available from mobile operators and retail outlets.
The SIMs operate using Vodafone and Three’s machine-to-machine (M2M) data network, rather than the mobile voice network used by the wider population. This ensures data transmission is not compromised by high usage by the wider population.
The fixed IP addresses are taken from Prodec Networks’ own core network, rather than that of Vodafone or Three, which means Prodec Networks has complete control of the IP addressing, and can offer a flexible and responsive service without relying on the mobile operators for support.
Prodec Networks offers a range of Fixed IP 3G Data SIM tariffs and bundles to suit all situations. It is also able to aggregate data allowances – a cost-effective solution that avoids customers paying for unnecessary usage. By combining allowances from each data SIM in the estate, Prodec Networks is able to provide a bundle of data that can be used by one or all of the SIMs during the monthly billing period. This makes it an ideal back-up or ‘failover’ solution without the high costs associated with secondary failover services.
Even faster connections are possible with Prodec Networks’ Bonded 3G solution.
