How the tech­nol­ogy works (and how it dif­fers from a stan­dard pocket Wi-Fi de­vice)

PC Pro - - Nuu Mobile Advertorial -

First, it’s best to ex­plain how pocket Wi-Fi units nor­mally work. Most don’t have in­di­vid­ual SIMs in­side but rely on SIM banks, ei­ther tied to a spe­cific mo­bile op­er­a­tor or us­ing an MVNO (a mo­bile vir­tual net­work op­er­a­tor, which pro­vides a ser­vice us­ing the in­fra­struc­ture of an­other op­er­a­tor).

Th­ese SIM banks share a fi­nite num­ber of SIM cards held by that op­er­a­tor or MVNO. When a cus­tomer turns the de­vice on they will be as­signed one of the SIM cards that the provider owns in their SIM bank. So, if the op­er­a­tor/sup­plier has 100 SIM cards, only 100 users can con­nect at the same time. If you’re user 101 then you’ll need to wait for an­other user to drop off be­fore you can con­nect. Con­ges­tion is a par­tic­u­lar prob­lem at peak times or where large events are tak­ing place, and cus­tomers have no con­trol over this.

In­stead, Nuu Mo­bile’s Kon­nect i1 uses a com­bi­na­tion of vir­tual SIM bank and vir­tual IMSI eSIM tech­nol­ogy (see the graphic above). This means when the SIM bank is used up, the con­nec­tion ca­pac­ity for cus­tomers is seam­lessly con­tin­ued on the eSIM ser­vice.

Nuu Mo­bile’s cov­er­age agree­ments are al­ready set up in over 100 coun­tries (and grow­ing), and with the mul­ti­ple iden­tity eSIM the abil­ity to max­imise ser­vice avail­abil­ity is well in ad­vance of a typ­i­cal pocket Wi-Fi de­vice.
