About Iota


Our goal is to help businesses leverage technology and connectivity to reduce cost, increase efficiency and advance sustainability. Our dedicated carrier-grade network is purpose built to enable low-cost, long-range connectivity in even the most challenging of environments. This connectivity powers a data collection, analysis and visualization process that provides actionable insights, drives sustainability and profitability, and positively impacts our planet.


Our business was built on the premise that we could revolutionize how “things” communicate with each other. Cellular networks were designed for people to communicate, whether via wireless telephones or through broadband internet (email, social, etc.), but are too costly and unreliable for most Internet of Things applications. So, we set out to build a fully-dedicated network for device connectivity that costs much less to operate, can travel long distances (and short) and consumes very little power, where most of our sensors can run on battery power for as long as 10 years!

As part of this revolution, we also believe that customers do not want to be tethered to the data plans of the past. Our vision is to embed our connectivity with applications that have value to our customers and continue to innovate, create and collaborate to advance the benefits of the connected environment, artificial intelligence and virtual reality.

We believe that our success is shared and stems from our culture of teamwork and collaboration among our stakeholders and partners and a sense of commitment, honesty and determination among our employees. We wouldn’t be where we are or get to where we are going without you.
