In certain markets, operators are sunsetting (shutting down) 2G/3G networks to reallocate radio frequencies. The mobile network operator landscape (MNO) is constantly changing and the situation varies from country to country.

From a continuity perspective, if there is an available solution, Eseye will respond to MNO changes and manage IoT device connectivity onto the next available network. Our next-generation eUICC solution – the AnyNet+ SIM – has multi-IMSI switching and network steering capabilities to ensure your device is future-proofed for its lifetime in the field, whether that’s five, ten, or fifteen years.

The AnyNet+ SIM can localise or change your device’s default IMSI profile seamlessly over-the-air to improve your uptime and service quality, and importantly maintain fallback connectivity.

We regularly publish the latest information about coverage changes made by MNOs. Please find the latest bulletin below (reviewed and updated in September 2022).
