Soracom Announces North America’s Largest IoT Coverage Area
"US-MAX" plan offers multicarrier IoT connectivity across AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon networks
SEATTLE — May 23, 2023 — Soracom, Inc., a global provider of advanced Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity, today announced a new cellular data plan designed to maximize network availability and coverage for devices deployed anywhere in the United States. Soracom’s new plan, “US-MAX,” provides IoT data coverage across the three largest wireless networks in North America: AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon. US-MAX also includes access to Soracom’s fully-virtualized cellular platform, including advanced cloud integrations and secure networking services designed specifically to accelerate IoT deployment and ensure success at scale.
In a country known for its wide open spaces, US-MAX offers IoT devices the largest available coverage footprint along with the ability to automatically switch between any of the three leading cellular networks for optimal connection reliability on the move. Soracom’s containerized multi-IMSI capability, which is compatible both eUICC and UICC standards, means that Plan US-MAX is available today as an over-the-air download to any device in North America using Soracom IoT SIMs or eSIMs.
“Oil and gas customers count on TOKU Systems to bring unprecedented remote visibility to tanks, wells, and pipelines across North America,” said Andrew Jarman, Chief Technology Officer at TOKU Systems. “Most of those installations are in remote locations, and we can’t afford to second-guess our connectivity. Soracom Plan US-MAX gives us the coverage our customers need and the ability to connect securely to our preferred endpoints.”
“Hortau empowers high-value crop growers with innovative precision irrigation solutions to optimize crop health and maximize the efficiency of their inputs by seamlessly connecting the soil and the crop growing environment.,” said Nicolas Gendron, Director for IoT, Web and Mobile applications. “With Soracom Plan US-MAX, our sensors remain seamlessly connected even in rural areas, while the Soracom platform ensures a secure and direct connection to our AWS VPC. This perfect fusion of availability, reliability, and capability forms the ideal solution for our needs.”
“Coverage is the key in IoT. Soracom serves as a technology partner to IoT innovators across North America, Europe, and Asia, and we know extensive coverage in specific countries can make or break a deployment,” said Kenta Yasukawa, CTO and Co-Founder of Soracom. “For devices deployed across the United States, it’s the right time for a plan you can download over the air to combine the greatest available coverage with the most advanced connectivity platform.”
Like Soracom’s standard global data plan, Plan US-MAX is offered on a shared success model, where customers pay only for the data and services they use, with no long-term commitment required. For complete plan and pricing details, visit www.soracom.io/us-max/
