Don’t Let Network Outages And Sunsets Haunt Your IoT Deployments!

Halloween is just around the corner, and we all love a good scare. However, the last thing any business wants is the fear of a network outage or sunset. These events can cause chaos in an organization, bringing productivity to a halt and putting revenue streams in jeopardy. It is crucial for businesses to futureproof their IoT deployments and be prepared for any eventualities. In this blog, we will discuss the scary impact of network outages and sunsets and how eSIM technology can provide a much-needed shield of protection.

Network Outages: The Nightmare Scenario

Network outages are a nightmare for business everywhere. They occur when a network becomes unavailable for use, causing communication breakdowns and disrupting day-to-day operations. Network outages can happen for a variety of reasons, such as cyber-attacks, natural disasters, power outages, and technical failures. When an IoT network goes dark, it can take several hours, days, or even weeks to recover operations. Many businesses don’t appreciate the severity of network outages until they happen, but unlike the ghosts in your attic, they are very real. Click here to check out some scary examples.

Network Sunsets: The Fatal Illusion

Network Sunsetting is the term used to refer to the decommissioning of old cellular network infrastructure such as 2G and 3G technologies to make way for newer alternatives with the objective of enabling the rollout of new connectivity technologies such as 5G. Network sunsets can leave businesses in a vulnerable position as their IoT devices will stop working if they do not migrate to a new network. Businesses may find themselves in a dilemma of choosing between a costly migration or risking the failure of their IoT devices. Most businesses end up having to perform “truck rolls” or SIM swaps to mitigate the effects of sunsets which can be costly and time consuming.

eSIM Technology: The BOO-st

eSIM technology is a game-changer when it comes to future-proofing IoT deployments. It enables businesses to be agile in the face of network outages and sunsets by providing a SIM that can be programmed remotely. Suppose a carrier is planning to sunset a technology; in that case, the eSIM card can be reprogrammed over-the-air (OTA) to switch to a new carrier that is offering a compatible network technology. Businesses can switch networks easily, using a secure and reliable connection, without having to worry about physical SIM cards and compatibility issues. eSIM technology provides a more cost-effective solution than traditional SIM cards and can help reduce risks associated with network outages and sunset.

eSIM Technology Offers Flexibility and Scalability

eSIM technology can provide businesses with the flexibility and scalability they need. It can enable IoT devices to connect to any data network, reducing the risk of service interruption. eSIM technology can also scale globally, enabling businesses to expand their operations and penetrate new markets without worrying about network restrictions.

Halloween might be a time for spooky stories and ghosts, but when it comes to network outages and sunsets, there’s nothing to laugh about. These events can be truly horrifying for businesses, causing lost productivity, frustrated customers, and even reputational damage. However, with the right tools, businesses can protect themselves against these terrors. eSIM technology provides the flexibility and control that businesses need to futureproof their IoT deployments. By working with an experienced provider like Teal, businesses can leverage technology to ensure that their devices are always connected, even in the face of changing networks.

Don’t let network outages and sunsets haunt your IoT deployments. Take the necessary steps to futureproof your IoT deployments using eSIM technology. This Halloween, let eSIM technology be the BOO-st that keeps your business protected from network horrors.

How to Get Started

To take advantage of eSIM technology, businesses should work with a reliable provider that specializes in IoT connectivity. Teal offers both plastic eSIM cards (like your standard SIM form factor) and embedded eSIMs that are compatible with any IoT device. This means that you can connect your devices onto any carrier network without having to physically swap out your SIM cards. This makes futureproofing your business easier than ever before.
