Cisco on Friday announced advancements to its IoT portfolio that enable service provider partners to offer optimized management of cellular IoT environments and new 5G use-cases.
Cisco IoT Control Center (formerly Jasper Control Center) is introducing new innovations to improve management and reduce deployment complexity. These include:
Using Machine Learning (ML) to improve management: With visibility into 3 billion events every day, Cisco IoT Control Center uses the industry’s broadest visibility to enable machine learning models to quickly identify anomalies and address issues before they impact a customer. Service providers can also identify and alert customers of errant devices, allowing for greater endpoint security and control.
Smart billing to optimize rate plans: Service providers can improve customer satisfaction by enabling Smart billing to automatically optimize rate plans. Policies can also be created to proactively send customer notifications should usage changes or rate plans need to be updated to help save enterprises money.
Support for global supply chains: SIM portability is an enterprise requirement to support complex supply chains spanning multiple service providers and geographies. It is time-consuming and requires integrations between many different service providers and vendors, driving up costs for both. Cisco IoT Control Center now provides eSIM as a service, enabling a true turnkey SIM portability solution to deliver fast, reliable, cost-effective SIM handoffs between service providers.
Cisco IoT Control Center has taken steps towards 5G readiness to incubate and promote high value 5G business use cases that customers can easily adopt.
