Private IoT Networking

Keep IoT data off the public Internet

Connect directly to AWS

Because Soracom’s core telecom network is built on AWS, servers inside your AWS VPC (Virtual Private Cloud) can connect to your devices without ever exposing traffic to the public Internet. SORACOM Canal uses AWS VPC peering to securely connect your IoT devices to resources within your private AWS VPC.

Create your own
IoT LAN

Soracom Gate uses the Layer 2 tunneling protocol to connect your host to a Virtual Private Gateway (VPG). Because your host and devices are in the same subnet, they can communicate using private IP addresses without NAT or firewall restrictions.

Access IoT devices
on demand

If you’ve tried to access IoT devices remotely, you know it’s not always as easy as it should be. Soracom Napter lets you access devices remotely. On demand. Without setting up relay servers, installing agents on devices, or risking security with a fix–ed public IP address.

Monitor data traffic

Monitor data traffic based on real-time statistical information, or apply business rules using your own applications. Soracom Junction supports inspection, mirroring, and redirection of packets passing through your Virtual Private Gateway (VPG).

VPN from devices
to your cloud

Use Soracom Door to create a secure cellular connection between devices and your on-premises or cloud-based systems using the AWS Virtual Private Network (VPN) feature, or use Soracom Direct to connect directly between Soracom and your private cloud or on-premises infrastructure using AWS Direct Connect.

Hardware-authenticate IoT devices

Authenticate devices across networks using the Soracom IoT SIM as a hardware-based authentication token. Because authentication is unique to a specific device and SIM, Endorse is portable across communication networks, including cellular, Wi-Fi, LoRa, or Sigfox.
