SEATTLE 15 November 2022 – Soracom, Inc., a global provider of advanced IoT connectivity has announced that it is now keeping more than 5 million IoT devices connected around the globe. The rapid growth up from the 4 million that Soracom announced in January 2022 is being driven by strong uptake of IoT devices in energy/oil & gas, payments/point-of-sale (POS), healthcare, consumer electronics, and agriculture, among other industries.

Soracom delivers IoT connectivity solutions to the innovative developers, SMBs, and SMEs to help them accelerate IoT deployment wherever they need to do business, minimise risk, and ensure successful, scalable IoT rollouts. The company offers commitment-free, pay-per-use connectivity services featuring speed to market, cloud-native integration and secure bootstrapping capabilities.

Soracom announced its first 1 million IoT connections in June 2019. Since then, use of Soracom’s secure, scalable, connectivity platform has expanded dramatically thanks to accelerating adoption across industries and geographies.

“Soracom’s powerful horizontal IoT platform makes IoT accessible to a growing number of partners, industries and applications,” says Kenta Yasukawa, co-founder and CTO, Soracom. “As a technology and business partner, we help customers in virtually every vertical offload heavy lifting to the cloud on terms that make sense for IoT. As we reach this milestone, we’re truly humbled by the ways Soracom customers and partners around the world are building new connected experiences.”

Soracom’s IoT connectivity platform is device-, cloud-, and bearer-agnostic. It provides everything the people, teams and organisations building tomorrow’s connected world need. Using Soracom, IoT innovators can connect any number of devices to their preferred cloud easily, affordably, and reliably, with complete network control, anywhere in the world.

One such connected experience is delivered by Pocketalk, an advanced, handheld, two-way translation device featuring a large touchscreen, noise-cancelling microphones, a text-to-translate camera, and the ability to help people connect across 82 different languages. Pocketalk uses Soracom to keep consumer, business, municipal and professional customers connected to the cloud wherever they go.

“With nearly 1 million connected devices sold worldwide, Pocketalk needs much more from a partner than just a connectivity contract,” says Joe Miller, general manager at Pocketalk. “From our first device to our third generation, Soracom has supported our growth with everything from eSIM provisioning to local breakout capability to IoT architecture consultation. We look forward to working together for a long time to come.”
