Does any telco offer a 4G Data SIM with a public IP address? It can be dynamic, but needs to be public.


It will go into a 4G modem which will be connected via WFi to a camera for live streaming.  The streaming receiver needs to know the public IP address of the 4G modem, not the outward facing Telco IP address.

Dude, posting the same content in each forum is not good form. Please delete all your threads in the vendor specific forums. and start a single combined thread in a general forum,

Appears the other threads have been trimmed, A shame the more productive response thread was not the one that was kept!

 

 

 

I'll echo what i said before though, Exposing an IP Camera to the public internet is asking for trouble.

 

Far better alternative methods where you are not sticking a gaping security hole in a network!

freitasm: Assume all IP cameras are piece of crap equipment with huge security holes. Never expose these to the Internet. Ever.

 

 

 

even if you don't care whether other people can view it.  e.g. using it for bird watching or something.

 

 

 

Whats the risk of having a publically exposed camera than?

Webcams and CCTV gear made up a huge chunk of the recent DDoS attacks on Krebs, and then the attacks that took down major sites.

 

There have been many stories about comprised CCTV gear and even examples of DVR's turned into bitcoin miners and yet people continue to do it.

In response to the OP as the other threads were deleted - your best approach is to engineer your solution correctly.

To answer your original question, we offer static IP that's fully exposed, though I'd suggest installing a firewall between your camera and the 4G router.
