Soracom Air: IoT SIM Card and Secure IoT Connectivity Platform

Soracom Air provides an easy-to-use, secure, IoT connectivity platform with our IoT & M2M SIM cards.

Get connected

From proof of concept to global deployment, SORACOM Air provides worldwide, commitment-free mobile data service designed for IoT and M2M. Connect across networks, from 2G, 3G, 4G LTE cellular to Cat M1 (where available), Sigfox and LoRaWAN.

The Soracom IoT SIM supports all standard form factors, including eSIM, and comes standard with the tools you need for full control over every connection in your IoT network.

What does Air solve?


No per-device minimum. True pay-as-you-go pricing. Pay only for the data you use.


With service in over 120 countries, devices get the connection they need on the strongest network available.


Manage your entire network with the Soracom Console and API

User Console and API

SORACOM Air gives you complete control of every connection in your network of devices, anywhere in the world.

Monitor data usage network-wide or zoom in on any connection. Change data transfer speed for any or every active SIM. Start, stop, or pause connections. Or use ICCID, IMSI, or IMEI to manage devices. Go hands-on with the user console or fully programmable with the Soracom API.

You can also use the console to activate powerful added services like:
• Beam for data optimization
• Funnel for public cloud integration
• Harvest for serverless data collection and visualization.

We add new capabilities regularly, and you can always find full API documentation on the Soracom Developer Site.

Subscription Containers for Advanced Multi-IMSI Capability

Soracom Air Subscription Containers enable lightweight, over-the-air subscription management that works with both eUICC and standard UICC SIMs and eSIMs. This removes the need to download and store large volumes of data when adding profiles, and also lets IoT devices add subscriptions to any SIM subscribed to Soracom’s standard global data plan (plan01s).
