SIM CardsAre you happy with your shiny new smart phone? Impressed with the latest apps and operating system on your new tablet?

There are so many bells and whistles with the latest mobile devices that it is easy to overlook the key component that has been there for nearly thirty years and allows the majority of tools to function –  SIM cards.

SIM cards have evolved since their development in 1991. The Nano SIM, found in the latest smart phones, is now basically just the chip. This has saved a lot of space within the devices themselves and has allowed for the streamlined designs we see today.

It isn’t just mobile devices that utilise SIM cards. Many electronic applications have adopted the technology to offer an improved service to the user. For instance, the latest smart meters have SIM cards to be able to send accurate readings to the energy providers directly – no need for you to take a meter reading.

The list of SIM applications is vast and continues to grow. Nowadays we expect higher levels of convenience, as well as accurate and up-to-date information, something that SIM cards provide. This is no different in the world of business.

Lister Unified Communications provides businesses with specialised SIM cards for a wealth of applications. These cards are specifically designed to carry data rather than voice, making them perfect for a range of useful technologies. We already supply SIMs for air quality monitoring, security gate access and air conditioning units, to name but a few.

Furthermore, multi-network SIM cards are now available, reducing coverage issues across the country. This allows you to stay constantly connected with your sales team on the road.

With the evolutionary use of SIM cards, along with the development of E-SIMs in mobile phones, it looks like these unsung heroes will be around for some time come.

If you would like to discuss the range of SIM application opportunities available to your business, please do not hesitate to contact Lister Unified Communications directly.
