Launches IoT solution to monitor smart objects in real time
Gemalto, provider of digital security, has announced the launch of its LinqUs Internet of Things (IoT) quality of service (QoS) offering, a comprehensive solution that enables mobile operators to monitor the cellular QoS of smart objects in real time.
This ensures the reliable connectivity that is essential for any successful IoT and M2M application, the company stated. LinqUs IoT QoS provides instant network status and analysis, and immediately highlights any issue by ensuring a rich array of data is readily available and accessible.
The offering is suited to a wide range of use cases, including automotive, fleet management, smart grid, alarm panels and connected point of sale applications. Mobile operators can provide their device manufacturer and service provider clients with clear visibility of network and connectivity performances, facilitating service level agreements and creating a highly effective means of differentiation.
LinqUs IoT QoS can be deployed on the operator’s premises, or in the cloud for fully outsourced management by Gemalto. Real time data is gathered via IoT QoS clients embedded in the device. All the information gathered is available via tailored advanced analytics, customer service and service level agreement measurement dashboards. These feature an at-a-glance overview of the connectivity status of an entire fleet of devices, along with comprehensive reporting and map views.
“Reliable connectivity is the foundation of successful investment in the IoT sector,” said David Buhan, senior vice president of mobile subscriber services for Gemalto. “A recent survey highlighted that more than 90%1 of operators believe they need to extend monitoring of their customers’ experience to cover expanding IoT services.”
