Why change IMSI?

Gain better coverage and overcome weak signal strength by selecting the best available network
Smart network switching capabilities to automate network selection
Backup network(s) for mission and business-critical operations
Ready for use
Enables out-of the-box connectivity across territories
Reduced rates through local connectivity options
Supports roaming connectivity to affiliated businesses or preferred partners
Offer various lines on one SIM subscription for different use or billing
What’s the best way to switch networks?
Both multi-IMSI and eSIM’s software, eUICC, offer multiple network roaming capabilities and a host of other benefits, so how do you know which is right for your business?
Well, it depends on how the SIM will be used. eUICC offers greater flexibility to users to change network profiles over the air via remote SIM provisioning. This can be of great value in the consumer device market where the end-user is likely to want to manage their own network connectivity and billing.
On the other hand, multi-IMSI is a solution that can offer providers a more cost-effective solution with a great deal more control over network connectivity as well as device and billing management. As result, multi-IMSI is a highly attractive option for M2M enterprise uses.
