nuSIM initiative brings cellular IoT without a SIM card
Telit will be a key partner in Deutsche Telekom’s nuSIM initiative, which will attempt to boost IoT deployment by moving the SIM functionality to the cellular chipset.

This initiative securely programmes the mobile operators’ credentials into the device during manufacturing, eliminating the need for the traditional physical SIM card.

The nuSIM architecture:

  • Eliminates the need for contacts, circuit paths, card holders and other components associated with physical SIMs.
  • Enables smaller device form factors that would not be possible with a physical SIM card.
  • Maximizes battery life by leveraging advanced power saving methods that are achievable only when the modem and SIM share the same underlying hardware.
  • Enables faster IoT deployments because each module ships with a fully operational integrated SIM.
  • Eliminates overhead costs related to SIM logistics, such as stock keeping and handling.

nuSIM is intended to allow a new generation of IoT devices, applications and business models that would not be possible due to the physical SIM card’s inherent cost, complexity, size, power consumption and other limitations.
