For an Internet of Things (IoT) device to connect to a network, it must first be on-boarded by the network. However, in some use-cases, such as those involving IoT devices that are on-board through low-earth orbit (LEO) satellites, it can be difficult to on-board IoT devices due to various potential communication limitations. Presented herein are automated techniques through which a new IoT device can be assisted in its on-boarding process through a nearby neighbor device that has already been on-boarded. In one instance, techniques presented herein may provide for the automated on-boarding of IoT sensors for communication with a satellite network.
