Telia Carrier’s IoT backbone separates IoT traffic from the public Internet, connecting operators and enterprises directly to device management platforms via a highly scalable and robust IPX backhaul solution.

The backbone for the Internet of Things

The possibilities of IoT are huge. But so are the consequences. That’s why we believe IoT deserves a backbone. Our dedicated IoT backbone connects mobile operators and enterprises directly to device management platforms in a single network hop. 

Partition traffic from the public internet

The things are coming – and so is their data. As it continues to grow, and as more applications become mission-critical, peering logic is no longer adequate. IoT calls for a higher quality of end-to-end connectivity. 

You get the end-to-end control, security, reliability, and accountability required for critical IoT traffic. By using pre-integrated topology, we can get you to market fast, so you can capitalize on the emerging possibilities of IoT.


The Internet of Things (IoT) is expanding in all directions, with the potential to create real value – and real security concerns. When data transits between networks, you lose visibility, reliability, and security. The only way to guarantee end-to-end quality is to have end-to-end control. And that’s what we offer you.

Connect M2M or IoT data aggregation points to device management platforms in a single network hop. Our IoT backhaul solution is a hub and spoke configuration powered by our global IPX backbone.

Our IPX network is GSMA and I3F compliant and it’s faster, and easier to connect to than layer-2 MPLS solutions. Your IoT traffic stays separate and safe from the public Internet.

We guarantee low latency from end to end, with Class of Service (CoS) awareness and committed Quality of Service (QoS) for the best possible results.


Our red and blue network architecture means full redundancy from the ground up. This means network availability of 99.999% monthly between any two Telia Carrier IPX PoPs.

And if anything does go wrong, you have the simplicity of a single point of accountability. We are always on call, with our award-winning customer care team available 24/7/365.

Critical applications, like autonomous vehicles, utilities, and health services increasingly rely on the IoT. At the same time, billions of commodity devices are rapidly joining the public Internet in a set-and-forget state, making security a make-or-break factor for the future of IoT.

We own our own global IPX network, separated from the public Internet. Our network architecture is designed to be secure at both the physical and logical levels, giving us full control and visibility for the highest possible levels of security.

With millions of end-users, for whom the word ‘interruption’ simply doesn’t exist, established network solutions don’t always cut it. That’s why we created our own (...) delivery platform and needed a network partner with not only a solid backbone, but also the right mindset and understanding to support our rapid and often unpredictable growth trajectory.
