The Vodafone Managed IoT Connectivity Platform simplifies IoT management — so you can realise the full potential of IoT. Whether you have thousands of IoT-enabled assets worldwide, or just a few in one location, the Managed IoT Connectivity Platform enables you to manage your entire IoT estate centrally.
The Platform gives you visibility and control of your IoT devices anywhere within our global footprint. It can track the location of any Global SIM installed in an asset, alert you to unusual activity, produce reports on performance and data usage, activate new SIMs, and much more.
Vodafone built and wholly owns the Managed IoT Connectivity Platform, so we can:
- Build in security and privacy from the ground up.
- Integrate it tightly into our core network for better performance, reliability and manageability.
- Control the development roadmap so we can extend the platform’s capabilities to meet your changing needs.
- You can monitor and manage all your SIMs around the world
- As all the infrastructure and platforms are wholly owned by Vodafone, security is built in from the ground up
With Gartner, Machina Research and Analyst Mason all identifying Vodafone as the global market leader, we provide service in 182 countries based on leading edge technology.
A user-friendly dashboard
The portal’s dashboard gives you a picture of your global IoT estate at a glance. It can be customised according to job role, ensuring you are presented with the most vital information.
Easy SIM management
Using the convenient self-service management tool, you can order SIMs in bulk, set country and regional restrictions, and change operational states to align with different stages of your manufacturing lifecycle.
The Platform enables you to define upper and lower data thresholds for SIMs in each group. If a SIM should operate outside of the parameters you set, the Platform will alert you immediately. It can also automatically perform actions on your behalf, automating your service.4
The Platform generates a variety of standard reports for the current and previous billing period As well as other vital information to help you understand how your remote assets are operating on the network.
With the service diagnostic tools and the transaction log, you can diagnose SIM problems, such as misconfiguration, RADIUS proxy issues, sudden spikes in data transmissions, and more. putting the control of your service.
We take data security seriously. By default, your devices connect to the Platform over a shared APN using a dynamic IP address. But, if you wish, you can opt for a dedicated private access point name (APN) and dynamic, fixed or mixed IP allocations over a range of connections including IPSec tunnels and leased lines. Only devices and assets with SIMs assigned to your organisation can transfer data via the dedicated APN — preventing unauthorised access.
