IoT Hub

A purpose-built bridge between your connected hardware and your cloud infrastructure.

Compatible with open standards

We support the most widely used protocols: MQTT, Sigfox, LoRaWAN, REST and Websockets.


Start with our shared free plan, and then move to a dedicated or highly available IoT Hub for mission-critical projects.


Keep track of your devices' current and desired states, even when they are offline. Transmit data to other services your application relies on.

IoT use cases

Smart building/smart city

Connect millions of devices and query their Twins to optimize your resource's usage in terms of energy, water, occupancy, public transportation, and much more.

Key features

IoT Networks

Connect devices securely through your preferred protocol: MQTT, Sigfox, LoRaWAN, REST, Websockets.

Message dispatching

Using a publish/subscribe pattern, the IoT Hub distributes messages between devices and applications, in a plug-and-play fashion. It can also forward messages to other services.

Cloud Twins

Twins are virtual representations of devices allowing for their asynchronous query and control. They remain in the cloud and are always available for applications.

Device provisioning

Scaling up a device fleet is easy. With auto-provisioning, a not-yet-known device with a valid certificate can be automatically registered as an IoT Hub device.

Frequently asked questions

IoT Hubs are managed and scalable message brokers. Their main function is to dispatch messages from and to devices using a publish/subscribe pattern. Each subscriber will receive a copy of the published messages to which it has subscribed. Subscribers and publishers are matched using a “topic” which identifies what data is in the message.

Cloud Twins are a digital representation of physical devices. They typically contain “current state” data, updated by the device, and “desired state” data, updated by the application. They are stored in the cloud and used to interact with devices in an asynchronous way.

IoT Networks are the front doors to IoT Hub, each one supports a different protocol, so any connected device appears the same on the Hub. IoT Networks are also responsible for securing the connection between the devices and the Hub.

IoT Routes are subscribers on the Hub and forward messages to non publish/subscribe services. This allows for storing messages in databases or S3 buckets, triggering Serverless Functions, calling a REST API, using AI services, etc..

Scaleway IoT Hub was designed with security in mind. Therefore, we implemented mutual authenticated TLS as the default authentication method. Each device needs its certificate+key pair to connect to the hub.
For devices not supporting secure connections, it is possible to also enable plaintext and server-only TLS authentication.
