Home / IoT Offering / VPN for IoT Devices

Protecting Your IoT Devices and Deployments

IoT authentication is a vital aspect of securing your IoT devices. Through IoT Connect, we offer several features and policies that can help you connect and monitor your IoT devices while ensuring maximum security.

IoT Connect offers a highly secure infrastructure with virtual private networks (VPNs) and additional services to ensure maximum security.

IoT Connect provides secure connectivity for IoT devices, including remote monitoring and management. We use VPNs and different types of APNs to establish secure connections between your data center and the Telenor IoT platform.

Why Using a VPN for IoT?

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) protects the transfer of information through the internet and increases the security of the connected product.

A VPN creates a secure connection between your data center and the connected products.

Securing Your IoT Devices with VPN

Our platform provides a secure connection through Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) between your data center and the Telenor IoT platform. We offer VPN tunnels that can be set up in your data center, or you can choose a Telenor IoT router that is ready to be plugged in. Our platform is interconnected across our core network, ensuring geographical redundancy.

Benefits of our VPN offering

  • Increased security
  • Lowered risk of data loss
  • Possibility to restrict data traffic
  • High availability

Features of our VPN offering

Select between a Single VPN and Redundant VPN, that adds extra robustness.

Overview of redundant VPN setup with Telenor IoT provided end-points:

Redundant VPN set-up for IoT devices
In a redundant VPN setup with Telenor IoT provided end-points, the customer connects to the Telenor Connexion IoT platform using two VPN tunnels and two end-points at the customer data-center.

Technical Data

VPN tunnels are created over the internet that encapsulates the traffic. To set up a tunnel, an endpoint is needed in your data center.

There are two end-point options:

  • Use existing equipment if compatible
  • Easy to use and ready to plug-in routers
