Soracom Air for Cellular
Integrating Soracom Air for Cellular with your IoT application begins with an Air SIM module (SIM card or Embedded SIM). Much like the SIM cards you receive from mobile network operators, an Air SIM module authorizes a device to connect to cellular networks and establish data connections.
By simply inserting or integrating an Air SIM module into your device, your device automatically gains global cellular data coverage, and is able to start sending and receiving data.
Cellular IoT connectivity:
Connect IoT devices over cellular via 2G, 3G, 4G LTE and Cat-M1
You deserve a connection you can trust – wherever your devices need it. Get connected with a super-charged SIM card and eSIM from Soracom, and discover a solution that offers way more than just IoT connectivity.
Technology innovators can connect to a completely reliable network that’s powered by multiple carriers – and connects seamlessly to multiple speed classes like 2G, 3G, 4G LTE and Cat-M1.
The Soracom solution is truly scalable. You’ll be able to order more SIM cards as and when you need them without any long-term contracts and without ever having to speak to an account manager (although we’re here if you need us!), and access a powerful suite of platform services out of the box.
Through our User Console, you can organize an entire fleet of SIM cards in whatever way suits you best, set up event handler automations to deactivate SIM cards when they exceed a specified amount of data, and apply IMEI locks to mitigate any risk your devices may face out in the field.
Better yet, you’ll be in total control of pricing every step of the way. With Soracom, you'll only pay for the data you use, and can set spending limits to mitigate any unexpected service charges.
To get started, try a single Soracom IoT SIM for testing… then easily upgrade to another 10, 100, 1,000 and beyond. With Soracom, there’s no limit to how big you scale... and how quickly.
Data Visualization & Protocol Conversion for IoT:
Manage your IoT data, build server-less dashboards and set up protocol conversion for any number of IoT devices, anywhere in the world
With your devices connected to Soracom’s IoT cellular network, you’ll be able to access a complete set of platform services to view and manage your IoT data like never before.
With protocol conversion in Soracom, you can reduce costs and improve your devices’ power performance by sending data from your devices over cellular using the most efficient protocols – like TCP or MQTT – and then convert to HTTPS in Soracom.
You can store data usage for all of your devices in Soracom and visualize data with beautiful, serverless dashboards that are easy to build – no matter how many devices you’re connecting to the cloud over cellular.
If you’ve tried to access IoT devices remotely, you know it’s not always as easy as it should be. But Soracom helps you access devices remotely, on demand, without setting up relay servers or risking security with a fixed public IP address.
And that’s not all. Soracom also provides technology innovators with tools to provision devices on demand, control their devices remotely, and monitor their data traffic with a broad range of advanced tools built specifically to challenge the biggest challenges in IoT today.
Public Cloud Integration:
Send data from your devices directly into AWS, Azure and Google Cloud Platform over cellular
Soracom makes it easy to transmit data directly from devices over cellular without any custom code – whether you’re building on AWS, Azure and Google Cloud Platform.
There’s no need to store passwords on any of your hardware, making it easy for your devices to securely send data to any of the leading cloud platforms with minimal setup and in-field maintenance.
Soracom will also provide technology innovators with tools for simplifying device-side logic, reducing resource consumption, and handling data in the cloud.
But that’s not all. With Soracom’s core telecom network built on AWS, servers inside your AWS Virtual Private Cloud can connect to devices without ever exposing traffic to the public Internet.
Private IoT Networking
Keep your IoT data off the public internet with device security, remote access, and private networking tools
The best network for your devices will always be the one that is most secure. Which is why Soracom helps tech innovators increase device security by creating their own private network between their IoT devices.
For example, you might want to access a device’s shell for maintenance purposes, or connect via peer-to-peer to directly relay stream data from a camera. Soracom supports these use cases and more, without the need to assign a global IP address to any of your devices.
You’ll also be able to access devices remotely, on demand, without setting up relay servers or installing agents on devices, as well as creating a secure cellular connection between devices and your on-premises or cloud-based systems.
