Organizations are increasingly integrating internet of things (IoT) devices to help achieve their top business objectives and stay agile when responding to technological advances. In 2019, an estimated 93 percent of enterprises had adopted IoT technology, and 54 percent of enterprises indicated that they began IoT projects to drive cost savings.
The trend of IoT device creation and adoption is projected to steadily grow in the coming years. Gartner estimates that there will be 25 billion IoT devices by 2021, expected to increase to 64 billion by 2025. The implementation and operation of an IoT network bring several business challenges, many of which can be solved through an effective IoT connectivity management platform.
Security concerns are often at the forefront of connecting several devices together. The volume of linked devices provides hackers a large area for malicious attacks.
The number of interlinked devices can act as a barrier for businesses looking to reap the full benefits of IoT if they are unable to standardize guidelines for its use. IoT volume also can cause connectivity bottlenecks, which puts a strain on network bandwidth.
Other roadblocks include:
An IoT connectivity management platform connects and streamlines the management of IoT devices, such as M2M (machine-to-machine) SIM cards. Sometimes referred to as a “connected devices platform,” the software promotes the scalability of IoT device controls and reduces time-consuming onboarding processes.
The software allows businesses to reduce downtime from device repairs by proactively checking for errors and predicting failures before they happen. It also streamlines connectivity management activities, bolstering productivity and reducing the time spent monitoring.
In order to stay competitive with the growing device ecosystem and its capabilities, companies require a comprehensive connectivity management platform to effectively organize and monitor device performance and security.
An effective IoT platform provides companies with:
Effective management software is essential for promoting the success of your IoT deployments and your device ecosystem, which includes all of the moving parts that connect to IoT devices owned by consumers, businesses, and governments.
The four essential parts of any successful management platform include:
Since IoT connects potentially thousands of devices together, businesses should make sure their management software only permits authorized and secure devices to join its ecosystem. Look for a platform that allows for specified device enrollment requirements and requires credentials for authorization.
An optimal management platform should provide companies with flexible device configurations and post-deployment controls to promote performance. It’s also important to ensure all devices have remote reset options when removing them from the IoT ecosystem.
An effective IoT management platform will provide businesses with tracking and visual representations of data in the real-world. This provides transparency into whether key performance indicators (KPIs) are being met, as well as if any errors arise, allowing for fast diagnosis and correction.
As the IoT pool increases it’s important to have the ability to update and make changes to devices wherever they are located. This is essential for when a security threat or vulnerability arises for quick patching.
