Gemalto, an international digital security company, has announced the launch of a Quality of Service (QoS) platform for the IoT to provide monitoring of smart devices running on cellular networks. The 'LinqUs' platform aims to highlight problems in real-time, to ensure a high-level of service.
A QoS platform like the one being debuted by Gemalto will help to ensure providers can meet expectations
LinqUs is suited to a wide range of use cases, including automotive, fleet management, smart grid, alarm panels and connected PoS 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.
"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% of operators believe they need to extend monitoring of their customers' experience to cover expanding IoT services. LinqUs IoT Quality of Service gives them the ideal tool to analyze performance, demonstrate their capabilities and deliver outstanding levels of service to clients."
Through deploying LinqUs on an operator's premises, or in the cloud for fully outsourced management by Gemalto, real-time data can be gathered by IoT QoS clients embedded in devices. Personalised 'Advanced Analytics', 'Customer Service', and 'Service Level Agreement' dashboards provide a detailed overview of the network and its performance.
For the IoT to accelerate, consumers will need to have confidence in solutions and this will only be gained from providers ensuring a high-level of service. A QoS platform like the one being debuted by Gemalto will help to ensure providers can meet expectations and retain customers.
Gemalto will demonstrate the new LinqUs IoT QoS platform remote monitoring in real time during this year's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. It's a busy event, but we'll try and swing by and report back on how well the solution functions if we get the chance.
