General Internet of Things and M2M
Enhance IoT Security & Optimize Data with a VPN
01.06.2016 Security in the world of IoT is a hot topic. Although a combination of different security protocols is necessary to ensure data protection (e.g., firewalls, compliance engines, etc), securing the information as it travels over the internet should be a top priority. A Virtual Private Network, or VPN, is a technology that creates a secure network within the internet to which users and M2M/IoT devices (or endpoints) are connected. Without a VPN, data is transferred openly through the public internet, and is susceptible to security violations such as eavesdropping, information leakage and hacking. By using a VPN, you are contributing greatly to the safe and reliable operation of M2M and IoT connected devices.
The Internet of Things is in a boom stage. Earlier this year at the Consumer Electronics Show, IoT ruled - connected home appliances, toys, security systems and the list goes on! And more recently, at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, the overwhelming message was anything that can be connected, will be.
emnify IoT Labs: Transmitting sensor data via USSD
USSD stands for “Unstructured Supplementary Service Data”. It allows the transport of small volumes of data over the signaling channel in a mobile network, however it does not need an active data connection to work, nor does it incur SMS charges.
IoT for transport and logistics
The Internet of things is growing at an exponential rate - it seems that every day there is a new study, report or predictions paper analyzing the growth and potential of the IoT and Machine to Machine technologies.
emnify IoT Labs: AWS IoT + emnify Enterprise Connect
emnify and AWS IoT - how to use them together Sometimes the best connectivity solution is realized by bringing two systems together. In light of this - and with the recent launch of AWS IoT out of beta - we have put together an overview of the AWS offering as well as our own emnify Enterprise Connect (EEC) offer, showing you how they can be used together.

IoT and M2M – taking the world by storm
Internet of Things or simply IoT is now a commonplace term in day to day life. Concepts like the connected-home are the norm; whereas the inability to control household items remotely or monitor business assets globally is now considered abnormal. Yet it was only 16 years ago that the term IoT first came into existence; it’s hard to believe that a concept that influences so much of our everyday lives is still just in its adolescence stages.
EMnify connects to SFMIX to cater with increasing M2M/IoT data volumes
EMnify, the leading provider of cloud services enabling the Internet of Things, announced today to start peering at the San Francisco Metropolitan Internet Exchange (SFMIX). The SFMIX is a carrier-neutral Internet Exchange based within the “Silicon Valley” region of California to promote local data exchange. “We see a great increase of data traffic from mobile M2M/IoT devices connected through our globally distributed mobile packet core towards popular cloud providers and M2M applications in the San Francisco Bay Area. To provide lowest possible latency and best quality of service we have now implemented IPv4/6 peering capability at the SFMIX on Gigabit scale.”, said Martin Giess (CTO). Vishesh Joshi (Product Manager, SDN & NFV) added: “All participants of the SFMIX (http://sfmix.org/participants) will be able to benefit from the best connectivity to mobile devices roaming into the bay area, based on our unique SDN technology we are able to dynamically route mobile data traffic on a global scale while making use of local breakouts like the SFMIX”. About EMnify EMnify addresses with its cloud services exclusively the rapidly expanding global machine-to-machine (M2M) communications market and enables the Internet of Things (IoT) Eco System with Cellular Connectivity and Management Tools to connect and control devices – simple, efficient and secure.
