Machine-to-Machine SIM Card explained
M2M SIMs connect IoT applications to cellular networks, where they can use an interchangeable protocol to send and receive data. IoT manufacturers can either insert or embed M2M SIMs in their devices, and companies can remotely collect and analyze usage data from the SIM.
