What is an IoT Network?Secure communications in any environment

An IoT Network refers to a collection of interconnected devices that communicate with each other without the need for human intervention.

Examples of interconnected devices include smart appliances and autonomous cars. The term Internet of Things (IoT) refers to the ever-increasing number of electronic devices that aren't traditional computing devices but are connected to the internet to send data and receive instructions.

  • How does an IoT network work?

    An IoT system is made up of sensors/devices which communicate with the cloud through some kind of connectivity. Once the data is received in the cloud, it is processed by software which can decide to perform an action, such as sending an alert or automatically adjusting the sensors/devices without the need for the user involvement.

    However, if the user’s input is required or if the user simply wants to check in on the system, they can do so via a user interface. Any changes or actions that the user requests are then sent through the system: from the user interface into the cloud, and back to the sensors/devices to action the change. .

  • What is the Internet of Things?

    In the broadest sense, the term IoT encompasses everything connected to the internet, but it is increasingly being used to define objects that communicate with each other.

    The Internet of Things is a huge network of connected items and people – all of which collect and share data about the way they are used and about the environment around them. The IoT connects the power of the internet, data processing and analytics to physical objects.

  • How does the Internet of Things work?

    An IoT system is comprised of sensors/devices which communicate with the cloud. IoT devices are made with built-in sensors and processors that act on the data collected by the sensors via machine learning. Machine learning refers to computers which learn in a similar way to humans, by collecting data from their surroundings.

    Once the data reaches the cloud, software processes it and then might decide to perform an action, such as automatically adjusting the sensors/devices without the need for the user intervention. If any user input is required or if the user wishes to check in on the system, a user interface allows them to do so. Any changes or commands that the user makes are then sent back through the system: from the user interface, to the cloud, and back to the sensors/devices to action the change. .

  • The IoT security threat

    IoT sensors and devices often lack the processing power to enable even the most basic security protection. More importantly, they are connected to your intranet, and in some cases – where appropriate IoT security measures have not be put in place – can access internal networks via the internet. It’s essential that organisations understand the threat and respond accordingly – proactively, rather than reactively, by which time it may be too late to repair the compliance and reputational damage caused.

    So, how can an organisation proactively nullify the security threat that IoT ecosystems represent to your internal networks? Telecom26 works with a network of partners and affiliates that can provide an end-to-end, comprehensive private network or, at the other end of the scale, we offer a SIM-enabled solution that can ensure that your IoT infrastructure is no vulnerable to attacks that attempt to access your corporate intranet.

  • How can Telecom26 help?

    We’ve built one of the most advanced IoT networks in the world. It offers both IoT global roaming coverage and reach, backed by performance tuned to the needs of your business. Our IoT network offers truly global reach, backed by a distributed, virtual core. It ensures IoT global roaming coverage, wherever you need it, for mobile and IoT services. It’s a Tier 1 network delivering Tier 1 performance

    We offer connectivity in more than 200 countries globally. In each, we have multiple partners, ensuring that our customers can optimise connectivity, anywhere. Explore our coverage to see which partners are available in the countries you need.Get in touch today to learn more!

  • What's in our network?

    Just like a conventional mobile operator, we have our own core. This contains all the tech to ensure service delivery, backed by operational processes to ensure it’s always available. We use the radio networks of our partners for the first mile of connectivity, so your SIMs connect to their mobile networks in the field, but all of the complex signalling, control and authentication is handled in our core.

    And, to ensure outstanding performance, our core is distributed globally, reducing delay and providing the best connectivity. What’s more, we’ve added additional security layers, so we can protect your traffic.
