What is the elcoSIM?

With the elcoSIM you get a high quality M2M SIM card for the communication of your machines to the Internet of Things. It is not just a simple SIM card or a mobile phone tariff. The elcoSIM is rather a connectivity interface between hardware and software/cloud. It is intended for industrial use and is suitable even for difficult applications. It allows you to access a high-availability network, ensuring the best possible connectivity. This ensures a high degree of reliability. Also regarding the security, this SIM card leaves nothing to be desired. You can also use it with a private access point (APN). Due to these advantages, it is optimally suited for the industrial automation of your plants or machines

Why elcoSIM?

One of the key benefits of elcoSIM is its excellent connectivity - worldwide. You have access to 350 networks in 160 different countries. In addition, we at Elco have many years of experience in global mobile telecommunications and IIoT. During this period, we have developed a variety of solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT) that are already widely used in practice. Moreover, there are also attractive fee models. You only pay for the services you really consume - not a penny more!
Our motto: Complete services from one source: one solution – one contact person for our customer!

The IoT revolution has come!

Most mobile service providers offer you only data packets of a fixed size - for example, 5 GB or 10 GB. However, it's often hard to predict how much data your devices will need. Therefore, the costs cannot be estimated accurately. For this reason, we do not offer you only a simple SIM card with data volume, but also a customer-specific flat rate. This is what we call function. After all, you do not want data volume or pure connectivity, but the function of your machine!
Furthermore, you always get a complete system - for example, an edge controller equipped with a m2m SIM card from Elco. The access to our cloud is also included. So you do not just get a data package. You book a specific function at a fixed price - regardless of the data actually used. That makes it easy for you to keep track of the total cost of the project!

Make your machine even smarter!

With the elcoSIM you monitor the position and the status of the machines live from any location. Our M2M SIM cards enable an easy data readout over the mobile network. This system is independent of your IT infrastructure or the structure of your customers and can be flexibly integrated. Regarding the used hardware, there are also no restrictions. Therefore, you can integrate the elcoSIM into many different machines. This enables simple status monitoring or VPN remote maintenance.

Our tariffs: individually tailored to you

Our tariffs: individually tailored to you

With our offers you can select from defined graduations by default. If this does not suit your local conditions, you can also conclude with us an individual tariff for your devices. This saves you any discussion about the data volume. You simply pay a fixed amount and can then use the booked function without restriction.

You have the choice over your network

You have the choice over your network

By default, our mobile rates include connectivity over the Telefonica networks. However, if in your case another provider is preferred at the M2M SIM card’s point of use, we will specify this for you in a customer-specific tariff. So you always use the network of your choice!

Excellent security

Excellent security

Elco's SIM cards meet the highest international security standards. You can use a private network access (APN) with us and a VPN encryption is also possible on the the network side. Moreover, they do not have a traditional phone number by default, making external attacks much more difficult. In addition, we offer our customers the standard option to provide our M2M SIM cards with a device lock. When switched on for the first time, your device and the M2M SIM card will merge and the SIM card can only be used in conjunction with this device.

Easy billing

Easy billing

The billing for the M2M SIM card services is very simple. We create an automated invoice for each SIM card. Normally you will receive a collective bill for all used cards. If you operate them on behalf of an end customer, however, a single bill is also possible. This payment method considerably facilitate the operation in practice. Many other providers of M2M SIM cards use PayPal, prepaid cards or credits for recharging. However, these methods are difficult to control in practice and an empty credit can cause faulty machine functions.

A suitable SIM card for each application

A suitable SIM card for each application

The elcoSIM is available in all popular SIM card formats. Therefore, you can equip any device with it - regardless of whether your M2M device requires a full-size, micro or nano-sized card. In addition, there is a practical eSIM available. This eSIM is suitable for direct soldering in your devices on the printed circuit board. Our industrial SIM cards are shock and vibration resistant, are suitable for very high temperature ranges, have a runtime of 10 years and their write and read cycles are four times higher than those of ordinary SIM cards.

Simple storage

Simple storage

Our tariff makes it possible for you to put the products you use in stock without causing monthly costs. Should a defect occur over time, you can take the new device or the M2M SIM card from your warehouse and switch it on. Only from this time the tariff becomes active!
So you can buy a product today and use it in a few years. Our M2M SIM cards and devices will only cause any costs when they are switched on for the first time!

Seasonal business

Seasonal business

Surely you do not feel like paying for your season ticket for the outdoor pool in winter, right?
It is the same way for a service provider for the winter service with the mobile connection for its vehicles during the summer months. Since he does not need it during this time, he is not willing to pay for it. However, the elcoSIM is ideal for seasonal business. You can adjust the services flexibly at any time and only pay for them when you really need them. Talk to us!

A word is a word!
