Introduction

Are you planning a trip to Japan? Good news! Internet Initiative Japan Inc. (IIJ), one of Japan’s leading Internet access and comprehensive network solutions providers, has recently announced that it will be launching its Japan Travel SIMs as a full Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) on April 2, 2018. This exciting development aims to provide visitors and temporary returnees to Japan with convenient and reliable mobile data services.

Introducing Japan Travel SIM

Japan Travel SIM is a packaged prepaid SIM card that offers high-speed data for seamless connectivity while exploring the country. With the Japan Travel SIM, all you need to do is insert the SIM card into a SIM lock-free device or a Wi-Fi router and configure the settings. It’s that simple! IIJ initially introduced the Japan Travel SIM in September 2014, and now they are offering new packages with increased data capacities of 1.5 GB and 3 GB.

What is a Full MVNO?

Before we delve into the details, let’s understand what a full MVNO is. Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNOs) are operators that utilize wireless access facilities provided by mobile network operators (MNOs). A full MVNO, on the other hand, goes beyond that and maintains and operates its own subscriber management functions (HLR/HSS), which are part of the MNO core network infrastructure.
