SuperNetwork SatPlus FAQ

No, a key benefit of SuperNetwork SatPlus is the convergence of both cellular and satellite on a single eSIM, so that when configured, your devices can switch freely between cellular and satellite connectivity.

SuperNetwork SatPlus requires a dedicated satellite IoT eSIM.

NoSuperNetwork SatPlus enables reduced hardware costs with a single satellite IoT eSIM that works with a single, hybrid cellular/NTN modem.

Both your cellular and satellite connectivity is manageable from your single account in the SuperNetwork platform portal. This enables monitoring, management and provisioning of both satellite and cellular plans in one portal view.

Yes, you can use emnify’s REST API universally to manage cellular and satellite connectivity.

Yes, we offer Zapier no-code integrations for SatPlus in the same way we do for cellular connectivity via our SuperNetwork platform portal.

Each SuperNetwork SatPlus package comes with our standard support plan but premium support options can be discussed.

SuperNetwork SatPlus data plans are pooled to limit overage charges, so different SIMs provisioned with the same plan can share their monthly allowance across SIMs. For example, if two SIMs each have 10 satellite messages per month, but one device only uses 6 and another uses 14, your pooled data plan will cover both devices without overage charges. If you require more satellite messages than the 60 in our SatPlus60 package, please discuss this with our IoT experts.

No, you will have SuperNetwork SatPlus data plan charges on the same emnify bill as your existing cellular only subscriptions.
