Turn the challenges of IoT into opportunities
Connectivity management is one of primary services of the Ericsson IoT Accelerator. Connectivity Management is a cloud service enabling operators to offer connectivity management to their enterprise customers. It supports operators in building up IoT solutions from device connection to the deployment of enterprise services.
With over 35 operator customers and over 5000 enterprise customers across more than 100 countries and 50 million connected devices, Ericsson is a market leader in the Connectivity Management domain.
For business' and enterprises to realize the full potential of innovation on a global scale and reap the benefits of a compelling IoT service experience, three requirements need to be fulfilled:
- Communication services that are easy to buy and use
- Connectivity management solutions that match the needs of industry use cases
- Visibility and manageability of every IoT device in real-time"
The Connectivity Management ecosystem of operators allows enterprises to start locally and grow business globally step-wise by tapping into the existing operator network. It handles multi-domestic connectivity, which means that the enterprise only interfaces to one selected operator, the lead operator. The lead operator taps into the present ecosystem or joins forces with new operators as required by the enterprise.
With real-time cost control enterprises can join the fast-paced development of the IoT with minimal investment – at minimal risk.
