SIM management becomes incredibly important as you scale your deployment. Our platform offers a range of options to keep track of SIMs and managing data usage.
For identifying and grouping, we recommend naming your devices during activation or by hitting the pencil icon beside the SIMs name on its specific page. Naming devices will make identifying them easier as you scale.
Tags are tool used to organize groups of devices within an organization. A device can be tagged multiple times making it easy to filter out devices on various levels. Tags can be added at the point of activation or from the top left-hand side of the Devices page.
For a more robust option, you can create organizations to segment your devices and isolate billing for different projects. To create an organization, simply hit the “Create organization” button on the top right-hand side of the Devices page. To move SIMs to an organization, select the SIM(s) on the Dashboard's Devices page. On the top left-hand side click on Manage > Transfer to Organization, select the organization you want to move your SIM(s) to, and hit the Transfer devices button.
In order to transfer SIMs, your user account must have have Manager or Admin permissions. Account balance must also be in good standing.
To manage your SIM(s) data usage, you can set Data Limits. Setting Data Limits will automatically pause a device from using further data if it surpasses the amount of data used in a given billing cycle. This amount resets each billing cycle and can be adjusted at anytime. This can be done by going to the Plan & Coverage section of the device's page and selecting different options under Data Limits.
Finally, you can manage your devices outside of the Hologram Dashboard by exporting a list of your devices which is done by hitting the export CSV button at the bottom left-hand side of the Dashboard. This can be used for import into business applications and reporting from Hologram.
