Telna Whitepaper: Accelerating Cellular IoT & Solving Ecosystem Complexities

Thursday 6 August 2020 | 13:28 CET | White paper | provided by Telna

Cellular connectivity is expected to play a vital role in supporting new IoT strategies developed by businesses responding to the threat posed by Covid-19. Reliability, flexibility and security are essential features of the technology, and these are fundamental to a successful IoT project that has reached beyond the pilot phase. But is the industry ready to respond to this demand? High volume IoT deployments are dependent on minimizing outlay, which in turn requires that overall ecosystem complexity is minimized. Longer time-to-market means lost revenue, effectively increasing the cost of IoT.

How can the industry deliver simplified cellular IoT to meet today’s requirements?

  • Simple connect and deploy. To support global device deployments, a solution that is able to adapt to any market is required. Typically, this is commercialized via programmable SIMs, or eSIM (eUICC). 
  • Transparent management. Wider contractual negotiations must take place to ensure that all traffic generated by roaming IoT devices can be sent transparently. Should a limit be reached that disrupts this, the customer experience will be severely damaged and lead to lower industry traction.
  • Secure lifecycle. Security in IoT is paramount to prevent device breaches and manipulation. As IoT devices are typically in the field for several years, they must be able to respond to new security threats that emerge: firmware updates and credential management are crucial elements for IoT device security.
  • Low complexity means low cost. This allows the customer to focus on the performance and outcome of the deployment. Where players along the value chain help in reducing the overall time-to-market, considerable benefits can be realized.

IoT does not operate within a localized marketplace. Many of the connections to support cellular IoT will be roaming, either on a permanent, or a temporary basis: some 1 billion cellular IoT connections are set to be roaming in 2025. This whitepaper will help MNOs, MVNOs and system integrators understand how simplified cellular IoT can be applied to meet new market demand and how these approaches will benefit the bottom line. It provides an analysis of several elements on the value chain and offers expert insight into the steps to take to ensure that global cellular IoT deployments can be serviced effectively.
