How Does Dual SIM Work? Expand Network Options Improving Uptime
A wireless cellular router generates connectivity to the internet utilizing a modem embedded in the router through a SIM card that connects to an assigned cellular service provider. The number of cellular connections the router can generate is determined by the number of modems in the router. One modem equals one cellular network connection.
So, what type of connectivity does a dual SIM, single modem router provide?
Take for example the Ventus Technologies VRB842. When deployed with a single SIM, the VRB842 operates like a traditional router connecting to the service provider assigned to the SIM. It is when the dual SIM solution is deployed that additional benefits are derived from the router’s unique ability to logically connect each SIM to the assigned service provider.
3 Key Benefits of a Ventus Dual SIM Router Solution:
1. Access to two separate cellular service providers under a single data plan
2. Built-in intelligence, auto-failover, switch between SIM 1 and SIM 2 if one of the networks is not performing
3. Connectivity can be manually changed between SIM 1 and SIM 2 using Ventus’s Genesis monitoring portal
