FAQs – answers to the most frequently asked questions

How does IP mirroring work?
The mobile network does not allow mobile devices to communicate directly among one another via their IP addresses. Therefore, we need to take a little detour here: We store a mirrored IP address in our M-CCP and thus enable the M2M communication for each mobile device, to which a private IP address is assigned. As soon as one device tries to reach another, our M-CCP translates the IP address and forwards it to the desired recipient via the mirrored IP.

What can I use the SIM cards for?
The global SIM card is a pure data card and cannot be used to send SMS messages or make telephone calls.
