About Caburn Technologies

Caburn Technologies

Caburn Technologies was founded by a team of experienced global telecom professionals with a vision to deliver engineered solutions and the highest levels of service to customers for whom IoT connectivity and control are essential.

A Fresh Approach to Global IoT Communications

Companies are looking for flexibility around Global IoT deployments. Our starting point is to gain a detailed understanding of your requirements before building the technical and commercial solution that will resolve your challenges.

The most ‘unreliable’ aspect of mobile communications is geographic coverage, signal attenuation, and variation. A secure and well-planned SIM solution provides far greater coverage and connectivity options. Working with globally renowned partners, we have developed a portfolio of communications solutions offering far more than simple connectivity.

Caburn Technologies systems also provide highly sophisticated actual and forecast usage functions which help clients manage their connectivity and costs.
