Manage the performance of cellular IoT devices and understand their impact on the network

Internet of Things (IoT) is today’s megatrend in the wireless communication industry. Machine-to-machine (M2M) wireless connectivity is being adopted in various verticals at increasing pace. The number of IoT devices deployed by 2020 is expected to increase to approximately 20 billion.

Cellular IoT (CIoT) is defined as a set of technologies under the 3GPP umbrella to enable IoT connectivity using the licensed frequencies, co-existing with the legacy cellular broadband technologies, such as LTE, UMTS and GSM. Polystar is natively supporting new CIoT interfaces and building insights that will help you monitor the CIoT devices in the network and understand their penetration and evolution in the network.

Mass IoT devices can have a significant impact on the operator signalling resources that could lead into signalling storms impacting customer experience if not handled properly and promptly.
