These days the internet is not just confined to computers. There’s a whole new world of activity related to IOT, or the internet of things. With more and more devices being powered up and connected to the internet, there are more opportunities to integrate technologies using M2M, which is better known as machine to machine connectivity. Machine to machine transactions are completely changing the game, and Telgoo5 is at the forefront of this new innovation with sophisticated infrastructure and IOT systems that are maximizing the technology and using it to help your telecom business.
Machine to Machine Connectivity: Valuable Asset for Telecom Operators
If you are an MVNO or MNO that needs a proper infrastructure to thrive in the competitive telecom business, Telgoo5 has you covered. Not only is our software totally secure, completely intuitive, and specifically built to scale with your company, it’s also on the cutting edge of technology. When it comes to M2M and IoT, we are one of the pioneers in the industry. Many technology-forward companies in the telecom industry trust Telgoo5 because we are flexible enough to allow them to scale, and offer customized packages to suit any and every business.
Our software is specifically designed to track IOT transactions with complete accuracy. It’s also built to bill IOT transactions and soft and ingest data based upon the rules that you set up. Since so much data is flowing through M2M transactions, it can get really overwhelming if you don’t have a plan in place for how to deal with it. Telgoo5 has anticipated that problem and set up systems that allow data to be sorted and maintained for reference. We control the flow of data based upon what your company needs to do and allow the rules to be guided by your preferences. Each one of our clients has different custom billing and data flows, and we are able to maintain them all with our sophisticated OSS and BSS systems.
IoT Connectivity and Telgoo5 Platform
The telecom industry is on the cutting edge of technology and is basically built completely on M2M technology, so it’s important that our operating system is easy to use and completely intuitive. At Telgoo5 we pride ourselves on not only having systems in place to facilitate M2M transactions on the IOT but also to be able to read the data and use it to better streamline the processes. Your end customers expect stellar service from their providers, and since it’s so competitive out there it’s imperative to not let them down.
Telgoo5’s billing system is in a class all of its own and can track and bill transactions that occur over the IOT. Too often there is far too much guesswork involved in billing for items on the internet of things. You have to have sophisticated tracking software to be able to do it effectively. That’s where Telgoo5 comes in. Our billing system is cloud-based and intuitive. Plus, it’s totally scalable and tracks each and every transaction that comes through. The information is easily retrieved on the cloud and can be referenced in a matter of seconds. All billing is prompt, accurate and broken down so your end customers see exactly what they are paying for.
One of the biggest complaints that MVNOs and MNOs face is that their billing is not comprehensive enough, or it’s confusing to look at. Telgoo5’s system eliminates those concerns and gives your end customers the white-glove treatment that they crave from their provider.
Role of Reporting in IoT
IoT operations are going to reach astronomical scales in the coming years. With a prediction of nearly 75 billion IoT devices by the year 2025, IoT is a tough beast to keep a leash on. There is no hiding or running away from it. If you are in it, you have to win it – meaning you are required to grow in different verticals to serve the needs of customers who will be using your IoT services including machine to machine connectivity charges.
Telgoo5 is an exceptional platform that not only lets you use its pre-existing partnerships, but also provides management of those associations along with full-reporting capabilities. Suppose you want to enter into a partnership with a shipping vendor to deliver IoT SIMs, not only you will get access to the partnership via an API, you will also get access to all the reports for understanding every facet of that partnership.
Benefits of Reporting in IoT Management
There are several benefits of full-fledged reporting capabilities provided by Telgoo5:
- Knowledge of subscribers’ whereabouts when they are roaming
- Information about the services they prefer and the amount of machine to machine connectivity data used
- The number of times they have called for support and their feedback on their experience with your customer support
Importance of Security in Machine to Machine Connectivity
Unlike broadband and mobile data connectivity that is utilized by humans, machine to machine connectivity is utilized by sensors and devices for human comfort. There is no direct human involvement, which is a matter of concern.
Hackers across the globe are looking at IoT as an easy target because of its wide proliferation and lack of supervision. But, as IoT devices transmit a large amount of data regularly that contains critical customer information like bank account details, address, phone number etc., it is important to secure the IoT signal with robust encryption. At Telgoo5, we employ the best encryption standards like AES to prevent hackers from accessing vital subscriber information. We also provide our customers a unique public IP address to further bolster the security.
The Need to Meet Unique IoT Requirements
As IoT is quite different from other techs that are prevalent in the industry, it has unique requirements of its own. One of the most vital requirements of IoT is Over the Air (OTA) firmware updates.
Because IoT is such a vast technology, it is almost impossible to update all the devices by making a dedicated wired connection. OTA allows IoT vendors to send firmware updates on a large scale without any need for a direct connection.
Also, IoT has a massive scale and thus the infrastructure that you are using needs to be expanded regularly. For MVNOs, it is very hard to keep on scaling their IoT platform as they have limited resources. On the other hand, an MVNE like Telgoo5 has immense resources to let you grow exactly as per requirement. The cloud-based Telgoo5 platform employs an Online Charging System (OCS) that performs charging in real-time for all IoT-related services. As the charging is done in real-time, the credit limits are always enforced properly, which prevents subscribers from exceeding their allotted quota. Telgoo5 is a multi-tenant platform that allows several users to log in to the system with their unique credentials.
Combining and tracking all M2M and IOT transactions is not an easy feat, but with Telgoo5’s unique, scalable and flexible OSS and BSS, it’s possible to see all of them with complete accuracy, leading to a greater end-user experience.
At Telgoo5, we take our clients’ business very seriously and ensure that they are able to meet the present and future IoT requirements easily. We measure each and every standard with over a thousand possible parameters, and hence we are considered an analytics-driven company and a high-caliber service provider.
