How can I check
How can I checkand voice usage on my SIM cards?
You can track service usage on all of your SIM cards by logging into your OSCAR IoT portal. Click on the SIM card you’d like to check, go to Service and choose between the following options:
1. ActiveSession. Check if there is any active session running on the SIM.
2. Today Use Records. See the latest use records over the past 24 hours.
EMV, EMNS and TCNS type SIM card types offer additional options.
3. Network Registration History. Check the last time the device was connected to a network. It also shows MCC/MNC value, i.e. specific network the SIM was last connected to.

What network coverage is offered on IoT SIM Card?
Machine to machine (M2M) refers to direct communication between devices using wired and wireless communication channels. In different industries such communication may be referred to by different abbreviations (SmartGrid, Smart Buildings, Smart Cars and alike, V2V, V2I and V2x - "vehicle to vehicle", "vehicle to infrastructure" and "vehicle to anything").
IoT is an acronym for Internet of Things. Wikipedia defines IoT as the network of physical devices, vehicles, home appliances, and other items embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators, and connectivity which enables these things to connect and exchange.
Many consider M2M to be at the core of IoT. In this regard IoT is simply a broader concept. IoT lets devices speak with one another through a much larger network. M2M is what provides the Internet of Things with the connectivity which enables capabilities that would not be possible without it.
There are also SIM cardsin ceramic miniature that can be soldered directly to the PCB – Printed Circuit Board of the device. There is more than one type of eSIM. Most common is MFF2 type with 8 pins. In addition, an eSIM can be embedded in other integrated circuits devices which are also soldered directly to the PCB. The eSIM card is not removable, but could be reprogrammed with another network profile if required to change the network provider.
What is an APN?
An Access Point Name (APN) is the name of a gateway between a GSM, GPRS, 3G or 4G mobile network and another computer network, usually the public Internet.
A device making aconnection must be configured with an APN that will be sent to the mobile network carrier. After analyzing this APN, the carrier will determine what type of network connection should be created. For example: which IP addresses should be assigned to a wireless device, which security methods should be used, and how, or if, it should be connected to a private customer network. An APN can be either public or private.
Every network provider has a public APN. When the SIM card is enabled for
e.g. GPRS/3G/4G, the public APN is added by default. A Public APN is open for everyone to use.
