Monetizing IoT Roaming
With billions of smart devices in connected homes, cars, offices, factories, cities, and just about anywhere, the opportunity to generate new revenue streams from innovative digital services has never been greater.
The Narrow Band IoT Perspective (NB-IoT)
How are wireless networks going to support such a tremendous volume of connected devices? In the Mobile IoT domain, technology standards define support for low bandwidth mobile communications, higher battery life and more. The NB-IoT opportunity requires us to shift our thinking and collaborate with network technology experts and solution innovators to overcome the challenges posed by such massive mobile connectivity.
Real-Time Analysis and Action
To successfully manage and monetize the NB-IoT connections, real-time connection analysis and automated action is essential. Service providers must be able to:
• discover all NB-IoT networks in the area
• determine whether a roaming device is an NB-IoT device
• pinpoint the device location
• confirm the device’s IMEI number
• optimize routing options for every connection
