Soracom’s IoT Device Implementation Guidelines

Essential Guidelines, Best Practices, and Technical Insights for IoT Device Implementation

Read Chapter #1

The proliferation of cellular-connected IoT devices has intensified the scrutiny on network performance from Mobile Network Operators (MNOs). Erratic behaviors, such as frequent reconnections or inefficient data transfers, can stress networks and risk blacklisting. Developers who deploy connected devices in 2024 and beyond must therefore adhere to best practices to ensure IoT devices are efficient, secure, and network-friendly.

Soracom's IoT Device Implementation Guidelines serve as a comprehensive resource to aid in the proper development and implementation of cellular-connected IoT devices. They align with the GSMA TS.34 IoT Device Connection Efficiency Guideline, covering crucial aspects from regulatory compliance to data management and security. By following these practices, developers can mitigate the risk of their devices being banned from networks and ensure smooth, reliable operation.

The guidelines highlight several key areas: using certified and compliant wireless equipment, following established industry standards, optimizing network and power usage, and implementing robust security measures.

Additionally, it emphasizes the importance of thorough testing and validation in real-world conditions to ensure devices perform reliably without causing network issues.
