The Power of Soracom: A Visionary in Managed IoT Connectivity Services


Let’s start with the obvious: If IoT is a wave of the future, then reliable connectivity is one of the sturdiest surfboards one can ride as the seas of accumulating technological progress churn by.

Reliable IoT connectivity (or a lack thereof) is where many make-or-break impacts take place. How organizations most advantageously scale their connectivity capabilities is often one of the strongest indicators of IoT growth. And improving this can take many shapes, too; network segmentation, migrating to modernized cellular IoT networks, bigger investments in cybersecurity tools, robust platform investments, and so on.

The long story short? Delivering this dependably is a must, and a global provider of advanced IoT connectivity that knows this very well is Soracom, Inc.

This month, Soracom was named a Visionary in the 2023 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Managed IoT Connectivity Services, Worldwide. The evaluation which led to this well-deserved recognition was based on specific Gartner criteria that analyzed Soracom’s overall completeness of vision and consistent ability to execute.

Soracom’s virtualized global platform has provided a breadth of benefits to businesses in industries like smart agriculture, energy, manufacturing, medical and transportation. Since 2015, it has been Soracom’s mission to accelerate global connections by working to democratize the tech that technical innovators need to create full-fledged products, services, and experiences. Specifically, the Soracom platform provides full capability for MVNOs, connectivity management, a unified “single pane of glass” management for options like cellular and LPWA to Wi-Fi and satellite, IoT SIM and eSIM solutions, zero-touch provisioning services, secure networking and advanced cloud integrations.

Soracom also expanded its ecosystem of IoT partners via its Soracom Partner Space, which includes more than 100 certified partners representing hardware, software, solutions and integration services. And in November of 2022, Soracom reported that it had surpassed more than five million IoT connections worldwide.

“We are humbled to be recognized as a Visionary in the Magic Quadrant for Managed IoT Connectivity Services,” said Ken Tamagawa, Soracom’s CEO. “Soracom’s sole purpose is to ensure that the companies and teams building new connected experiences launch quickly and succeed at scale. As a technology partner to innovators around the world, we are committed to delivering the connectivity, tools, and technical capability that keep our customers and partners positioned as leaders in their industries today and tomorrow.”
