What is Internet Breakout?
So an Internet breakout may be your local Wi-Fi router at home - or the gateway of your IoT sensors. In a cellular network internet breakout is the point where the data leaves the operator network. So for local networks such as Wi-Fi or Bluetooth - the internet breakout is usually at the location of the device itself - for cellular networks the breakout is in a central place of the home operator - the one that sold the SIM card.
IoT vs. M2M: What’s the Difference?
The Internet of Things (IoT) and Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communication have been around for years. This technology has revolutionized the way we do everything from agriculture and manufacturing to healthcare, transportation, and payment processing. Connecting sensors with electronic devices and applications enables consumers and businesses alike to automate processes and trigger actions based on data.
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.
