Soracom Air for Cellular Sydney rendezvous point now available
We are pleased to announce the launch of a new rendezvous point located in Sydney, Australia.
When a device using a Soracom Air for Cellular SIM connects to a cellular network, IP network connectivity is provided by one of Soracom's infrastructure regions, known as rendezvous points. With the addition of the Sydney rendezvous point, devices located in Australia will be able to connect to the internet and access IP services with lower latency.
Devices will automatically begin using the Sydney rendezvous point under the following conditions:
- The device is using a plan01s, plan01s - Low Data Volume, or planP1 subscription
- The device is located in Australia
For devices located outside of Australia, IP network connectivity will continue to be provided by other rendezvous points. For more information, please refer to the Rendezvous Points documentation.
Sydney rendezvous point with VPG
Virtual Private Gateways can now also be created using the Sydney rendezvous point, allowing for connecting to private networks and utilizing other advanced VPG functions from within Australia.
Please note that only devices physically located in Australia will be able to connect to a VPG that has been configured with the Sydney rendezvous point. Devices located outside of Australia will need their SIMs to be attached to a VPG with a different rendezvous point, or detached from the VPG, in order to access IP services.
