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.
Polystar’s CIoT insights solution helps operator´s device and network teams stay on top of the IoT devices growth in their network.
The CIoT insights from Polystar is an adaptable and configurable solution based on the operator’s use case requirements, We collect data from multiple interfaces and technologies and correlate it with device information in real time to provide needed statistics and KPIs per technology, interface and device. Polystar’s solution can provide a unique workflow per use case and a drill-down to detailed call flow per CIoT device.
All CSPs are different. That is why Polystar’s solutions can easily be adapted to fit any CSP.
The CIoT Insights solution also supports data export interfaces, so that it can be integrated into third party solutions, such as Big Data analytics tools, increasing their business value and ensuring valuable data is shared between core business processes.
Polystar’s CIoT Insights solution enables CSPs to:
Dedicated KPIs for the CIoT devices
Dedicated views to follow up on CIoT devices growth and KPIs in the network.
Monitor the CIoT devices penetration in the network
Understand what type of devices are increasing and where.
Group device types and generate insights for commercial use
Use the IoT device information to generate useful commercial insights.
Monitor the data volume for mass IoT devices
Understand how much traffic is being consumed by the CIoT devices in the network.
Monitor the performance of IoT applications
Monitor latency and connectivity performance for IOT applications.
