5G IoT Networks are secure by design

Unlike some forms of connectivity, 5G IoT networks (NB-IoT, LTE-M) are carefully managed and secured by mobile operators. As such, the growing usage of 5G IoT will help to counter security threats to the IoT, such as the hijacking of devices by botnets and the hacking of sensitive data belonging to individuals or organisations.


By supporting an array of security features and safeguards, 5G IoT networks are set to play a pivotal role in building trust in the Internet of Things, while giving enterprises the confidence they need to bring mission-critical assets online, so they can be remotely monitored and controlled.

Protection against threats

Mobile Operators restrict the communication from 5G IoT devices to specific servers which means a compromised device will be unable to communicate with any other destination. These restrictions are implemented using a whitelist of IP addresses, IP address ranges or URLs.

NB-IoT gives great security and encryption

Secure communication channels

Our IoT platform routes commands, signals, data over the global 5G IoT network (NB-IoT, LTE-M). The global 5G IoT is designed and built specifically for Internet of Things devices operating on a narrowband frequency.


Many security layers

Mobile operators help IoT device manufacturers keep their data communications isolated from other traffic including supporting; In-built mobile network encryptions, security and privacy features; ​IPSEC security, 2048 bit RSA Chipset security, and 256 bit military grade SSL encryption.
