Reducing IoT data costs
When you’re managing a network of IoT devices at scale, every byte of data you can save counts. Soracom helps tech innovators keep IoT data costs low, without compromising performance or security.

Keep your costs low
Soracom provides a number of different tools for keeping costs as low as they can be, and for staying in control of how much data devices are consuming out in the field.
Reduce your data costs
Use less data, get more control
Reduce costs by securely transmitting data from your device via a lightweight protocol and converting to a cloud-native, full-fledged protocol in Soracom. We support UDP, TCP, MQTT, and HTTP on the device-side, which is converted to HTTPS before sending to the cloud.
Reduce fees by transmitting data with lightweight protocols on an already secured cellular link – all while maintaining encryption between Soracom and external cloud services.
Secure cloud integrations
Optimized data can be sent directly to your cloud of choice, either Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, or Microsoft Azure.Learn more
Service without SURPRISES
Stay in control of costs
Managing a network of connections and devices at scale is an easy way to see costs start to escalate. Keep in full control of your data costs with Soracom, and avoid any unexpected charges or surprises.
Set up event handler automations, such as deactivating a SIM when its data usage has exceeded a certain amount.
See exactly how much data any SIM (or group of SIMs) has consumed over a set time period.
Simple, transparent pricing
Only ever pay for the data you use
Whether you’re connecting cellular devices over 2G, 3G, 4G LTE or Cat-M1, we believe that you should only ever be charged for the data that you actually consume.
We aggregate all the data used by your devices and simply change based on the number of MBs consumed across your entire network.
Pay as you go pricing
There are no long-term contracts or minimum data usage quotas – just pay for the data you actually need.View Soracom pricing
Made for developers
Convert IoT data with code or console
You can reduce costs by converting data in our easy-to-use Console, or via API using a command-line interface.
However you prefer to manage your data, Soracom has you covered.View developer docs
Even if your low-power device supports only HTTP, you can still deliver HTTPS to cloud services in Soracom without setting up any relay servers or SDKs on the actual hardware.Learn more
Direct cloud integrations
Send optimized IoT data to the cloud
Direct integrations with leading cloud service platforms like AWS, GCP, and Azure make it easy to send optimized data to the cloud.
No need to store passwords, SDKs, or software agents on devices; minimal setup and in-field maintenance.
Credentials and keys stay in the cloud to limit security risk even if in-field devices are breached.
Accessing Your Devices Remotely
Carry out maintenance and debug remotely – without setting up any relay servers or installing agent software on the actual hardware.Learn more
