DUAL SIM – Ultimate Connectivity and Resilience
SEVEN provides safe and resilient communication through an advanced roaming algorithm and a secondary SIM pathway.
SEVEN uses roaming ‘Machine to Machine’ (M2M) SIM cards to provide data and voice communication, with the added benefit of a managed platform for support should communication issues arise.
SEVEN uses these SIMs in conjunction with a roaming algorithm to determine the most suitable local network for your device dependent on location and other external factors. In the UK, these are typically EE, Vodafone, Three and O2. Should SEVEN be unable to connect to the local network, SEVEN will roam and connect to an alternative provider.
To connect to one of these providers, data and voice traffic must be passed through a Core Network provider such as Tele2, Telenor, Deutsch Telecom etc. In the rare event of a core network outage, SEVEN is fitted with a secondary ‘back-up’ SIM card to offer a redundancy path for connection to an alternative network. Should the Core Network provider through Pathway A be unavailable, Pathway B can be used to send an alert.
