Always the right connection

With the SmartConnect service TDT offers an elegant solution for all applications where a fixed IP address is required. With TDT SmartConnect it does not matter which way the router comes online. As soon as the connection to the internet is established, the router automatically establishes a connection to the server. This server acts as a relay for communication and the location can therefore be reached via the public IP address of the SmartConnect server. Servers connected via LTE, for example, can make their services available to employees or customers.

SmartConnect Public

  • Independent of the connection path (mobile telephony, DSL, cable, optical fibre)
  • A fixed, public IP address
  • Direct access from the Internet
  • Secure and traffic-saving; only necessary applications get access.
  • Separate server instance for each SmartConnect
  • Free assistance with installation

In most mobile networks, providers use carrier-grade NAT, in which only private IP addresses are available for the end devices that are routed to the Internet via NAT gateways. However, since many applications require direct accessibility, this poses a problem. Be it to be able to administrate the mobile router, to establish a VPN connection or to query measurement data of an application connected to the Internet via routers, for example. Without a fixed IP address on the router side, this is only possible to a limited extent or not at all.

Public access to a terminal device or server via the Internet.

TDT's SmartConnect service is also interesting for routers that are supported via backup, as these are then always accessible under the same IP address - independent of the currently active connection. At the SmartConnect server the data traffic can be pre-filtered. This can reduce the amount of data, especially with "mobile connected" routers, and thus prevent the tariff-volume limit from being reached. By default, only the traffic required by the customer is passed on. For security reasons, a separate server is also used for each customer.

SmartConnect Private

  • Independent of the connection (mobile phone, DSL, cable, fibre optic)
  • Direct connection via private IP addresses
  • Secure: Access via Internet only with own VPN tunnel
  • Separate server instance for each SmartConnect
  • Free assistance with installation

For special scenarios a so-called TDT SmartConnect Private is also available. This can be used, for example, to connect two or more mobile devices "directly", via the TDT-SmartConnect-Server as a relay. In this case the devices are not accessible via the public internet.
