Managing device connectivity can be really simple

Digital device technology is evolving at breakneck speed. But in some markets, demand is maturing. Global device manufacturers look at exciting new services to differentiate whilst satisfying customers’ expectations around service, speed, and security.

These requirements create testing challenges. How do you simplify the supply chain when selling connected devices worldwide? How do you manage connectivity over the entire product lifecycle?
And how do you ensure the best user experience, with fast, secure device connectivity, right out of the box?

Consumer expectations are challenging

Securing fast service access on all types of connected personal devices requires manufacturers to address multiple trends in the marketplace. The more effectively they can solve these challenges to deliver seamless device activation, connectivity control, and user convenience, the stronger their ability to establish robust and profitable relationships with mobile operators.

Miniaturization

The device real estate used for connectivity must be as small as possible

Security and privacy

Users need the peace of mind that comes with effective device protection

Ruggedness

Users expect devices and connectivity to be robust enough to cope with anything from a commute to rock-climbing

Standardization

Personal devices need to integrate with the wider world of IoT devices, from fridges to interactive advertising and beyond

Independent connectivity

Every device must have its own connection
