Vodacom, South Africa’s leading cellular network, together with Tracker and Sierra Wireless, has launched a world first with the introduction of a next generation SIM card for vehicle tracking, based on the inSIM technology from Sierra Wireless.
The inSIM embedded SIM component was designed and developed by Wavecom, now part of Sierra Wireless. This new technology will be deployed by Vodacom and will be used by Tracker, South Africa’s leading stolen vehicle recovery and fleet management company. Vodacom provides Tracker with its network services.
Sierra Wireless’ innovative inSIM is a unique solution which embeds the SIM function into the Wireless CPU at the component level, eliminating the use of the traditional plastic SIM card thus reducing the ability for third parties to tamper with the SIM card.
