Application: Geographic location-based sim switching (Patent ID: US20240031913A1)

The patent filed by NXP Semiconductors NV relates to a method for switching SIM cards in a mobile telecommunications device based on geographic location. The method involves identifying the device's location and using the first SIM to connect to a network within a specific geographic area, while switching to the second SIM to connect to a different network in another geographic location if the signal strength meets a predefined threshold. The system utilizes various technologies such as local positioning modules, UWB localization, and different generations of networks like LTE, 5G, and 6G.

Additionally, the patent describes a mobile telecommunications device equipped with a geographic location module, two SIM cards, and a controller that facilitates the switching process based on location and signal strength. The device can determine its location using different methods, define specific geographic areas using geofences, and ensure seamless connectivity by switching between SIM cards and networks as needed. The technology outlined in the patent aims to optimize network connectivity and enhance user experience by automatically selecting the most suitable network based on the device's location and signal strength.
