5G IoT is faster, more secure and more reliable connectivity

5G IoT technology (NB-IoT, LTE-M) is more than just a new generation of wireless technology. It represents a fundamental change in the mobile ecosystem, unleashing a powerful combination of extraordinary speed, expanded bandwidth, low latency, and increased power efficiency that is driving billions of more connections in the next five years and changing our world.

It’s unleashing a massive ecosystem where networks can serve billions of connected devices, with the right trade-offs between speed, latency, and cost

Connecting billions of 'things'

Today, about 6.5 billion ‘things’ are connected to the internet. Yet, we are still only connecting less than 1% of what could be connected.

This is because these items are either too remote, too inaccessible, or there are simply too many to make it economically viable to do so. Mobile network operators are changing all that with 5G IoT communications technology including NB-IoT and LTE-M.


An ever-expanding ecosystem

Explore the community of leading Mobile Network Operators (MNO) offering 5G IoT connectivity services around the world.  With a combined footprint covering over 85 countries, MNO's  address the cellular IoT connectivity needs of any enterprise anywhere.


Connectivity you can rely on

Whilst Wi-Fi has been designed mostly for steaming video and sharing large files, 5G IoT is designed for low data transfers.

Own greater tomorrows

We have made it this far by embracing change and facing every challenge with passion and resolve. Moving forward, we put compassionate leadership at the center of everything we do, as we aim to create a better world.

A network to make running your business easier


Fully managed and standardized

5G IoT is part of mobile networks with fully managed, standardized systems guaranteeing the integrity of all data running through it


No onsite equipment required

5G IoT devices can be standalone and do not require any supporting equipment or infrastructure. 


Designed for massive scalability

Billions of IoT devices from smart lights, to smart meters and smart locks can connect to the internet on global NB-IoT networks


Advanced security and encryption

5G IoT has passed security protocols by 3GPP/GMSA the organisations responsible for managing mobile networks globally.


Stronger coverage 

Signals extend 20% beyond normal mobile phone coverage, and it also extends underground and deep within buildings


Dedicated spectrum bands 

Dedicated bands have been set for 5G IoT networks to avoid interferences and for low latency, which means better reliability


Great power efficiency for devices

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


Designed for low data rates 

Whilst Wi-Fi has been designed mostly for steaming video and sharing large files, 5G IoT is designed for low data transfers.


Designed specifically for IoT devices

Utilises mobile network security/features  built-in from the ground up, not just bolted on, so we can operate a high-security IoT service, ensuring full confidentiality and privacy.

Why 5G IoT


Mobile Network Operators (MNO) have been rolling out 5G IoT networks on their existing mobile networks all over the world


Countries have had nationwide 5G IoT network rollouts in the last two years, check if your country is covered here.

100 M +

Devices such as smart meters (electricity, gas water) smart lighting, smart trackers, and so on have been rolling out globally


Reaching 20% beyond mobile network coverage. 5G IoT coverage extends deep underground and high in skyscapers.
