DNA Connectivity IoT

IoT/M2M subscriptions and DNA Control Center access in DNA's nationwide mobile network
What is IoT?

The Internet of Things means physical devices that can sense their environment and then communicate or act intelligently based on their perceptions, thereby enabling us to predict and automate certain operations. This requires sensors, software and a data connection.

The IoT offers myriad opportunities to generate added-value through improved service quality, lower costs and increased business.

The opportunities of IoT

DNA Connectivity IoT subscriptions are intended for corporate data transfer between sensors, devices and systems when mobile data transfer is required. We provide this service in 2G, 3G and 4G networks. Subscriptions can be easily and comprehensively managed via the DNA Control Center (a user interface provided by Cisco Jasper).

IoT subscriptions use DNA’s nationwide mobile network. Mobile subscriptions are particularly suitable for connecting IoT devices located over a wide area – from large properties or factory buildings to cities – or where devices are in mobile use. IoT subscriptions make use of the mobile network’s advanced information security features. The mobile network combines the reliability and continuity of an established technology with predictable development according to mobile technology standards.

SIM cards with various physical characteristics are available to suit the different user cases and devices. Subscriptions can be integrated into secure company-specific APN solutions, and an international roaming feature can also be added if you want to use the connections outside Finland.
