  1. Once the 4G roaming Wi-Fi device is powered ON, it detects all available networks within its coverage area.
  2. A dial-up VPN connection between the device and the SaaS (Software as a Service) platform is established using the Embedded SIM (SEED SIM) in the device.
  3. Successful authentication of user credentials by SaaS platform triggers the device to search and populate a public list of available mobile networks and provisions a SIM remotely.
  4.  The device selects and connects to the optimal network. It periodically scans available networks and switches automatically to ensure the user is constantly connected.
  5.  Using the same VPN connection, YRoam Customer credentials (“user credentials”) are authenticated by SaaS.Services will now be activated and users can connect up to five Wi-Fi enabled devices to their YRoam device.
