Managed SIM


Why does a managed sim beat a regular sim?

Connectivity is an ever-expanding need, no matter what business you are in. Nevertheless, there are some great differences within the propositions presented by (local-) business market-oriented mobile operators, providers, and industrial parties delivering carrier-grade enriched services. A big difference can be found between unmanaged and managed SIM solutions, and we are going to explain to you why that is.

What is an unmanaged SIM?

The unmanaged business SIMS come with limitations such as limited reporting, non-managed features like alert, bundles with high cost on overage, limited roaming allowance, data throttling when limitations are reached, steered networks, no specific network selections possible, no country profiles, and single network within its country.

What is a Managed SIM?

Managed Carrier Grade SIMS and SIM services, such we deliver at TNF are very different from any regular business or retail SIM. Especially as you take a closer look at all elements which are relevant. From technique to terms and manageability.

All of the above-mentioned items in the business SIM section, we see as limitations.
Limitations you can’t afford if you take the connectivity of your key assets or primary processes seriously.

So for Managed SIM we simply remove these restrictions by providing high-performance Mobile Data based on (5G) 4G, 3G, and 2G to fulfill all connectivity demands with maximum flexibility.
As an independent operator, TNF is capable of setting the exact conditions as you require them. With our SIM Card & eSIM, we ensure high availability thanks to national roaming in all available 200+ countries. Network performances and availability will increase enormously compared to single network solutions. All our services will be delivered at a clear fixed rate, without hidden conditions.

USP & Result by category.

USP – SIM Level

Low, Mid, and High-volume usage

Result: Flexible, scalable portfolio with solutions for any type of internet need

No roaming restrictions

Result: Always on 365-24-7 without EU (or other) roaming limitations

Multiple networks per country for extra high availability and performance

Result: Carrier neutral offerings with continuity for customer processes

1 SIM all countries

Result: 1 SIM 1 Solution all countries. Cost savings on contract management and clarity on conditions rather than managing 32 contracts and conditions in the example of supplying 32 countries with local SIMS. (Cost-) predictability has a great value for any partner and customer

High upload by symmetric speed settings. Upload equal to download speeds

Result: making THE difference related to any other SIM. Key business processes where uploads are just as – or more important as a download. Great differentiator.

USP – Security Level
