Cloud-based collaboration for M2M applications
Customers will be able to use the platform to monitor, control and manage wireless subscription services and mobile communication devices through a single, easy-to-use interface. As a result, they can simplify the management of their connected devices, software and services and accelerate the development and deployment of M2M applications, as well as lower ongoing operating costs.
M2M services represent a rapidly growing market for both network operators and customers building connected vertical applications. AirVantage Subscription Management will connect to Verizon Wireless’ unified Web services interface, enabling direct activation and deactivation, suspend, resume, and the tracking of data usage, while monitoring the connection status of devices operating on the Verizon Wireless network.
Communicating directly with devices in the field is also possible through the AirVantage Ready Agent, as well as advanced asset management features and application development tools.
The Machine to Machine Management Center connects Verizon certified devices to back-office and field service applications or infrastructure over the Verizon Wireless network. Customers can access an integrated dashboard to manage network connections, self-service device management and other key elements of machine-to-machine connectivity.
Sierra Wireless states that the AirVantage Platform already includes applications to manage mobile subscriptions, communications devices and their attached assets (such as components in machines, telemetric devices in automobiles and monitoring devices in a home or office); a powerful set of M2M application development tools; and an open Web services API.
