AnyNet SIMs

Eseye's AnyNet+ SIMs combine eUICC and multi-IMSI technology to maximise network coverage for devices, and provide them with every opportunity to connect to a working network using Eseye's Connectivity Management Platform.

Eseye supplies physical SIMs in different sizes (form factors), embedded SIMs (eUICCs) and iSIMs (USON-8).

For more information about iSIMs, please contact your Account Manager.

The different versions of the AnyNet+ SIM support different technologies and features as shown in the table below.

AnyNet+ SIM card sizes (form factors)

 

You can order Eseye AnyNet Secure SIM cards in the following form factors (FF):

  • Original (1FF) 85.6 x 53.98 x 0.76 mm (not used in modern devices)

    The full-size SIM (1st form factor) was the first form factor and was the size of a credit card. Most smaller form factors (2FF, 3FF, 4FF) are delivered in a full-size form factor that can easily be separated.

  • Mini (2FF) 25 x 15 x 0.76 mm

    The mini-SIM (or 2FF) has the same contact arrangement as the full-size SIM card and is normally supplied within a full-size card carrier, attached by a number of linking pieces.

  • Micro (3FF) 15 x 12 x 0.76 mm

    The micro-SIM (or 3FF) card has the same thickness and contact arrangements as the mini (2FF) SIM but is smaller in length and width for use in smaller devices.

  • Nano (4FF) 12.3 x 8.8 x 0.67 mm

    The nano SIM (4FF) card is even smaller than the micro SIM with dimensions that are only slightly larger than the chip itself.

  • Embedded (MFF2) 6 x 5 x 0.9 mm

    The embedded (MFF) SIM is an integrated circuit that’s designed to be permanently soldered into an IoT device. It has eight electrical pins, which are the same as the eight gold contacts on removable SIMs.
