SMART SIM vs Other Sims

SMART SIM

ROAMING SIMS

LOCAL SIMS

COVERAGE
  • Cumulative coverage of all operators
  • Best network selected dynamically
  • Improved 2G/3G continuity
  • Preferred operator list on SIM with attachment ranking
  • Attaches only to home networks when in “home” country
  • Steering to preferred networks can slow performance
  • One network, one country
  • High roaming charges
  • Risk of 2G/3G phase-out
CONNECTIVITY AVAILABILITY RATE
  • Multiple technical routes to reach any network
  • Higher end-to-end resilience
  • Flexible network switching for increased availability rate
  • One technical route for all covered networks
  • Lower end-to-end resilience
  • Switches only when network is unavailable or down
  • One access network, one back-end route, one infrastructure
SIM MGMT TOOLS
  • One management portal for service, SIM, geography, and consumption
  • API library
  • Advanced diagnostics
  • Help desk
  • Portal and API set is operator-dependent
  • Limited troubleshooting tools in roaming context (operator-dependent)
  • Rudimentary portal and APIs. if any
  • Limited helpdesk support, if any
