Complex IoT projects can involve hundreds or thousands of IoT devices, each equipped with a SIM card. In order to keep track of costs and connections in such quantities, you need an effective way of managing them. For this, we offer our customers access to either our own M2M Service Portal or Ericsson’s IoT Accelerator platform, thus ensuring that you are working with the best SIM management platform for your individual needs.

These platforms allow you to easily manage SIM cards, contracts, invoices and data use through an intuitive web portal. In no time at all, SIM cards can be rebooked, ordered and deactivated, or tariffs can be changed to match the needs of your products. You can easily monitor the connection status, usage and costs of your SIM cards and automatically detect misuse of your devices through smart settings. Our flexible reports and evaluations ensure that you always keep full control of your costs – and get even more out of your IoT projects.

Our hands-on technical support makes even the biggest projects manageable
