Apple Shoots for a New Universal Standard for Embedded Sim Cards

 

apple esim

 

Talks have been going on for a while now about Apple creating a standard for universal embedded sim cards. This ‘e-sim’ would allow consumers to switch phone carriers on-the-go and easily without having to unlock phones.

Apple joined these talks and hopes to release phones with such capabilities sometimes in 2016. These talks have included: AT&T, T-Mobile US parent company Deutsche Telekom,Telefónica, Hutchison Whampoa, Orange, Etisalat, and Vodafone.
Whether or not other carriers join in the talks remains to be seen.

Reports have also found that Samsung plans to explore its options with the new e-sim technology. The potential for the e-sim technology seems likely that if successful, the technology would become a new standard for Apple and Android users.

Making the Switch from Clear to Sprint - What Device Should I Choose?

sprint_clear.jpg

Last year Sprint announced that they would be shutting down their WiMAX network and therefore Clear/ Clearwire service along with it by November 6, 2015. Even though WiMAX was one of the first 4G networks available, it never quite took full flight like LTE. This was mainly due to its deployment never making it nationwide. In addition, customers saw issues getting good reception indoors due to the high frequency (WiMAX operates on 2500MHz), which also didn’t help with interference in locations using 2.4Ghz for WiFi.

Here’s the message Clear/ Clearwire sent to their customers:

Dear Valued CLEAR/Clearwire Customer, You are receiving this notice because our records show you are subscribed to services on the CLEAR 4G (WiMAX) Network or Clearwire Expedience network. Sprint is in the process of implementing major enhancements to the Sprint 4G LTE Network, including the deployment of Sprint Spark, an enhanced LTE network capability, by repurposing the CLEAR 4G (WiMAX) Network and Clearwire Expedience Network. As a valued customer, we are providing you formal notice that Sprint will cease operating the CLEAR 4G (WiMAX) Network and Clearwire Expedience Network on November 6, 2015 at 12:01AM EST.

What this means to you:

  • Sprint will no longer support CLEAR 4G WiMAX and Clearwire Expedience devices or services.
  • Your CLEAR 4G WiMAX and Clearwire Expedience devices and services will no longer work, including your ability to contact 9-1-1.
  • You should not return your device(s).

To discuss your options or learn more, please call 1-888-888-3113.

Thank you for your business.

Sincerely,

CLEAR/Clearwire Wireless

This begs the question - “What device can/ should I upgrade to?” And what about the data plans? Nothing appears to have been said directly about whether or not Clear customers are going to be able to keep their existing plans, or if they’ll need to get a new data plan with Sprint. However, according to the statement on Clear’s website, one can assume the latter. If this is anything like the Millenicom and Verizon Wireless switch, that’s a safe assumption.

To help Clear/ Clearwire customers in their transition to a Sprint device, we wanted to share some solutions. We’ve broken them down by what typical users may consider - consumers (i.e. home, travel or simple office use), small business/ M2M, and enterprise.

Consumer:

  • USB modem 
    • If you only have a computer that you’d like to connect to the Internet, this is the simplest solution for you. This would be similar to using Clear's "Series S" 4G+ device. Just plug the USB modem into the USB port on your computer and use the built in software to connect to Sprint’s network.

       

  • Mobile WiFi Hotspot (aka. MiFi) 
    • These are intended for multiple WiFi users and is comparable to the ClearSpot Voyager  hotspot. In some cases, these can also be tethered via USB to a computer. Most hotspots have a user limit (10-15 on average) and a max WiFi range of around 30ft. If you need to connect more users and/or need more WiFi range, a WiFi as WAN capable router can be used to repeat the WiFi signal (just be aware that the bandwidth speeds typically get degraded with WiFi as WAN). 

       

  • USB modem + compatible router

Small Business/M2M:

  • Cellular Broadband Adapter/ Gateway
    • These are also types of embedded routers, but can be used if you simply need to incorporate a cellular Internet connection into your existing network. They support a feature typically known as IP-Passthrough, which allows the router to disable NAT and pass the WAN IP address from the cellular modem through the Ethernet LAN port to another device.

       

Enterprise:

These solutions are certainly not limited to the types of users we list. We recommend using our router advisor and router feature comparison chart to find the best solution for your specific needs. If you’re still stuck, give our 3Gstore team a call!
