Overview – Soracom IoT products and services
(very) high-level architecture. the important part is a core network built completely in the cloud
From small businesses to major corporations, every Soracom customer gets full access to global and enterprise grade cloud-native IoT connectivity. Soracom’s AWS-based platform lets customers securely manage and optimize all their connected devices using real-time APIs, SDKs, or a web management console.
Building from the SORACOM Air SIM card, Soracom customers can ship devices around the world with the assurance of secure, scalable management and monitoring capabilities.
With SORACOM’s no-lockin, kb-based, pay-as-you-go model, our users are in full control from the moment they begin development. Deployments scale effectively from a couple of test boards all the way to global releases supporting millions of devices.
SORACOM Air Global IoT SIM
Simply purchase a SORACOM Air SIM Card on Amazon and get up and running with secure IoT connectivity as soon as you receive the card. Scaling deployments is as simple as ordering additional SIM cards directly from the SORACOM user console.
Using SORACOM’s Canal and Gate private network connectivity services, SORACOM customers can can create as many private networks as they wish, ensuring that devices are securely connected and that their data flows freely without ever leaving their prescribed network.
SORACOM Gate: private, two-way communication between your network and your devices
For quick visualisation of device data, SORACOM offers its Harvest service, which enables simple, bandwidth-optimised per-device data gathering and graphing capabilities.
Using Endorse, SORACOM’s device authentication service, SORACOM customers can ensure that their trusted devices securely communicate over cellular and Wi-Fi networks via unique identification tokens.
To optimize data consumption without compromising security, SORACOM provides its Beam and Funnel services, which allow customers to use low bandwidth protocols such as UDP, TCP, HTTP and MQTT at the device level.
SORACOM Beam can reduce data and power consumption for connected devices and sensors
These resource-friendly protocols can then be translated in the Cloud to higher bandwidth, high security protocols such as HTTPS and MQTTs.
Funnel also allows for a direct, low-bandwidth data pipeline into AWS Kinesis and other leading cloud services. All of this within the security of private cloud-native connectivity.
SORACOM Funnel: cloud adapter suite for IoT
Use SORACOM to build sustainable connected devices without compromising on speed to market, security or scale.
Getting started with with SORACOM is as easy as ordering a SIM from Amazon. Once your SIMs arrive, it takes just a few minutes to register and activate. From there, as you can see, there’s almost no limit to what you can create.
