Connecting devices to networks and the cloud
Currently, around 6.5 billion "things" are connected to the internet, but that's less than 1% of what has the potential to be connected. With 5G IoT, this is rapidly changing. This revolutionary communications technology is designed to enable IoT devices to connect with each other through cellular networks and the cloud.
Providing a worldwide solution
Gain valuable insights from GSMA regarding the mobile industry's implementation of 5G IoT technologies (NB-IoT and LTE-M) as a comprehensive coverage solution sometimes known as the Global Mobile-IoT Network (GMN).
Investing in a growing ecosystem
Discover the consortium of prominent Mobile Network Operators constructing the Global Mobile-IoT Network worldwide and providing 5G IoT connectivity services. With a collective presence in over 85 countries, more than 140 MNOs are meeting the global connectivity requirements for smart devices. Our smartlocks are compatible with 40 MNO networks worldwide thanks to new roaming agreements.
Mobile Network Operator Trust and Security
Unlike some forms of connectivity, 5G IoT networks (NB-IoT, LTE-M) are carefully managed and secured by mobile network operators. As such, the growing usage of 5G IoT helps counter security threats. Learn more about security
Technology designed for IoT devices
Utilises mobile network features and security built-in from the ground up, not just bolted on
Signals extend 20% beyond normal mobile phone coverage, and deep underground buildings
Whilst Wi-Fi has been designed mostly for steaming, 5G IoT is designed for low data transfers.
Designed for low data
Billions of IoT devices from smart lights, to smart meters connect to the internet on 5G IoT networks
Our smartlocks with SIM cards work out of the box on 5G IoT networks in 40 countries
Mobile Network Operators (MNO) all over the world have been rolling out 5G IoT networks on their existing mobile networks
Countries have had nationwide 5G IoT network rollouts in the last two years, check if your country is covered here.
5G IoT Devices such as smart meters (electricity, gas, water) smart lighting, smart trackers, have been rolling out globally

The combination of high speed, low latency, wide coverage, low power consumption, and enhanced security make 5G IoT technology a great choice for connecting and managing a wide range of IoT devices.
5G IoT is part of mobile networks with fully managed, standardized systems guaranteeing the integrity of all data running through it.
5G IoT has passed security protocols by 3GPP/GMSA the organisations responsible for managing mobile networks globally.
Devices can run on batteries for up to 5 years as they can remain in a deep sleep mode and woken up only when required to receive unlock commands/extract data
No onsite equipment
5G IoT devices can be standalone and do not require any supporting equipment or infrastructure. Everything is in the cloud.
