This IoT Roaming Guide outlines what roaming is – and why it is not only important but crucial for your IoT solution.

When it comes to the connectivity scale IoT (Internet of Things) is never local. It’s a global business, so no matter if you’re a fast-growing startup, a global player, or an established enterprise with ambition to expand, it’s important to understand the role roaming plays in your solution – and why and how operator roaming agreements are crucial to optimizing your connectivity uptime.

Simply put, mobile roaming gives customers of one operator access to the network of another operator, thereby allowing for uninterrupted network connectivity.

This Roaming Guide is designed to help you understand the value roaming brings to your IoT solution, both from a connectivity perspective as well as from cost and regulatory perspectives. Mobile operators use roaming SIMs to support connectivity globally. Using roaming rather than local SIM cards simplifies the process of providing connectivity in different territories, while also allowing MNOs (Mobile Network Operators) to use foreign SIMs in any region, thereby leveraging national roaming.
