Connectivity is at the core of the Internet of Things (IoT). With the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, connectivity became one of the biggest challenges for businesses as supply chains and day-to-day operations were thrown into disarray.

This whitepaper examines the need for Cellular IoT Connectivity through a post-COVID-19 lens as the world slowly moves toward a “new normal”.

Multi-IMSI Connectivity HUB with over 22 Mobile Network Operator Partners with roaming agreements across 800+ carriers. With Connectivity Hub, you get to enjoy robust global connectivity with multiple built-in redundancies

eSIM support_icon

eSIM Support enables the provision and deployment of new devices in a rapid and convenient fashion. You can store multiple profiles on a single device, effectively having two or more numbers, and switch between them with ease.




  • Multiple Global APNs will provide a stable, reliable connection with a global backup infrastructure. In the event of one or more go down, data can be re-routed to another continent if needed.
  • Multi-IMSI — With 26+ IMSI profiles, you will have access to local networks in more countries allowing for more flexibility and redundancy. In the event of a network failure, whether domestic or international, we can bring your device online faster by changing the IMSI profile. This will change the data route to another network infrastructure.
  • Two-way SMS as well as SMPP Bind support worldwide and device number allocation: Allows devices to send SMS-Alerts
  • eSIM support for easy deployment and flexibility
  • 24/7 Global Call Center support in 5 languages – Business does not stop at 5pm on Friday. Our call centers have tier 3 support staff. They take full ownership of the issue at hand and don’t take any other calls until everything has been resolved. Our support staff’s average tenure is 3.8 years. They are the driving force behind our 98.7% First Call Resolution. Not all issues can be resolved with one conversation; however, our support personnel will follow up with the customer until everything has been resolved.
  • Dedicated Account Managers — Each company is unique and has its own requirements. Our Account Managers take the time to really learn your business and assist with any help needed. They should be the first point of contact in a non-urgent situation. Whether it’s support, billing, or sales, they will be able to quarterback any request and provide a solution, making everything seamless to the end user.
  • Access to C-Level management is important not just for escalations, but also for additional solutions. If your business has a need and we can’t support it, just ask the people who can create what you need.
  • Simplified Billing — Not everyone wants to go through 1000’s of billing pages. We provide a simple option that has only the vital information. If you need more details, we can provide that as well. With Quarterly Account Analysis and Optimization recommendations, we help you save time and money.
  • POND SMART SIM — Every carrier has dead zones, and it’s impossible to know which carrier will work where. Swapping SIM cards may not always be an option. Our Smart SIM allows for connectivity to the best available network.
  • Local Representation/Offices located across US, UK, Germany, Dubai & Ukraine – Allows for quick access on the ground in areas needed most.

Choosing the Right M2M Connectivity Technology for Your IoT Project

What is M2M Communication?

In simple terms, Machine-to-Machine communication allows devices to communicate with one another without human involvement. This makes it crucial for the Internet of Things to function properly. By connecting machines to each other, IoT devices can send and receive data. Thus enabling multiple gadgets to collaborate and make decisions based on real-time information.

What Are Some M2M Connectivity Options?

This technology offers several connectivity alternatives, including cellular networks, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Zigbee, and LoRaWAN. Each option has its own benefits and drawbacks. The optimal choice depends on the specific use case and requirements.


Cellular networks are a popular choice for machine-to-machine due to their extensive coverage, reliability, and security. They allow IoT devices to connect to the Internet from almost anywhere, even in remote regions. They are also highly scalable, making it easy to add new M2M devices and expand the network as needed. However, cellular networks can be expensive, and data usage costs can quickly add up.


Wireless networks are a widely used option for M2M connections, especially for indoor applications. Wi-Fi networks are fast, reliable, and affordable. This makes them a great choice for smart home devices and other Internet of Things applications. Nevertheless, it has a restricted range and does not work well in outdoor spaces or large-scale projects.


Bluetooth and Zigbee are low-power, short-range wireless technologies that are commonly used in smart home and industrial IoT applications. These technologies are highly reliable and offer low-latency communication, making them ideal for applications that require real-time data processing. However, they have a limited range and are not suitable for large-scale deployments.


LoRaWAN is a form of wireless technology specifically designed for the Internet of Things (IoT) applications requiring a large area, such as smart cities and industrial sites. It is straightforward to increase the network's reach by adding more devices, but the cost of implementation might be high. Additionally, the rate of data transmission is slower than other wireless systems.


In summary, M2M connectivity is an essential component of IoT systems, allowing devices to communicate and share information instantly. There are several types of connectivity to choose from, such as cellular networks, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and LoRaWAN. The best option for an application should be determined based on factors like range, cost, reliability, and scalability. As IoT technology advances, Machine-to-machine connectivity will become increasingly important, and new technologies and standards will be developed to meet the changing needs of IoT applications.
