To connect the nRF9160 DK to the cloud, you need an IoT enabled SIM card that can connect to available networks in your region. The iBasis card included in the kit has coverage in most regions (download coverage map for more information, updated February 8th, 2021). Remember whether your network supports LTE-M or NB-IoT and power saving modes (eDRX or PSM).
If iBasis does not have coverage in your region, please see our cellular connectivity partner page, contact your local Regional Sales Manager or local network operator to purchase a local IoT enabled SIM.
If your region does not have eDRX or PSM power saving features support, you will still be able to see sensor data on nRF Cloud, but the GNSS position feature may not work.
More information on regulatory certifications can be found under the Overview tab.
