SORACOM Funnel

Frictionless connection between devices and leading cloud services

A direct link to your cloud of choice

SORACOM Funnel currently supports:

  • AWS IoT
  • Amazon Kinesis
  • Amazon Kinesis Firehose
  • Microsoft Azure Event Hubs
  • Google Cloud Pub/Sub

* SORACOM Funnel is provided as a Public Beta service

What does Funnel solve?

Cloud Integration

Connect to leading cloud services, including AWS, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform, without storing SDKs or credentials on devices.

Simple Application Updates

Re-route traffic or change integrations without pushing new firmware to devices

IoT Security

Credentials and keys stay in the cloud to limit security risk even if in-field devices are breached.

How it Works

Connecting IoT devices to cloud services usually requires a relay server or installation of a device-side SDK.

With Funnel, you can transmit data directly from devices just by specifying your desired cloud service and resource. Funnel removes the need to store passwords on devices, and allows access to cloud services with minimal setup or in-field maintenance.

Funnel also allows use of lighter HTTP, TCP, and UDP protocols. Soracom will automatically convert to secure protocols for delivery to your cloud, reducing total power and bandwidth requirements.

Programmable Access Points

Because you can set the Funnel endpoint as the destination for device data, you can manage connections for any device or group directly through the Soracom console or API.

When you’re ready to switch from test to production, just send a command. No need to reset individual devices.
