The integrated SIM for the Internet of Things

nuSIM: Our innovative iSIM solution

Until now, the SIM card has been an additional piece of hardware that had to be inserted or soldered into IoT devices. nuSIM is different: Here, the functions of the SIM card are directly integrated into the communication chip and there is no separate SIM anymore. The device gets less complex, which not only saves time during production, but also cuts costs. And since no additional SIM card needs to be operated, IoT devices with nuSIM consume less power. That's why nuSIM is particularly suitable for compact devices and when long battery life is required.

How nuSIM works

Illustration of how nuSIM works


  • Optimized for special requirements regarding robustness, size and power consumption
  • SIM function is integrated in modem chip, no separate SIM card is required
  • Already at chip production, an individual secret key is loaded to the chipset
  • This key enables the secure loading of an operator profile (a 1 KB set of data) later in the value chain
  • After the operator profile is loaded, nuSIM is ready for use. It works exactly like any other SIM

Overview: Your benefits from nuSIM

Euro sign with down arrow icon
Low costs
The functions of the classic SIM are transferred directly to the chipset. Since the physical SIM card is no longer required, the nuSIM is cheaper to produce. Furthermore, there’s no associated logistics, no SIM slot and no need for additional SIM space in the device
 

Battery icon
Long battery life
The power consumption of the integrated nuSIM is up to 90% lower than with other SIM forms, as there’s no need to operate a separate SIM component. This is particularly useful for IoT devices that are to be used over a long period of time.
 

Connection cloud and hardware icon
Digital Process
The physical SIM process gets digital. SIM components are no longer inserted or soldered but all data is provided online, then stored and finally downloaded into the specifically protected nuSIMs.
 

Protective shield icon
Robust and secure
Without a SIM card slot, the end device is better protected against moisture and dust. The integrated nuSIM is also perfectly safe against manual access (e.g. theft) and external influences such as vibrations or temperature fluctuations. nuSIM is security-certified by TÜViT.
