CKN: New Service Provider IoT Solutions to Drive Digitization

Event Summary

As organizations embrace IoT to transform their businesses, often the first step is to deploy sensors on machines and devices to convert physical measurements (for example, pressure, motion, vibration, temperature, and humidity) into digital signals in order to make assets more productive. Service providers have an opportunity to provide secure connectivity for these IoT devices and sensors across a range of access network types that vary in terms of cost, complexity, security, data transferred, and reliability. Cisco’s leading industry-tested access networking solutions for unlicensed (Wi-Fi, LoRa) and licensed (2G, 3G, LTE, NB-IoT, CAT-M1) radio enable service providers to offer appropriate classes of service as demanded by IoT applications. We’ll look at use cases across this fragmented access market, including for existing and emerging LPWAN options such as NB-IoT, which is coming on strong.

Service providers can transport IoT data and signaling from securely connected devices across a multiaccess mobile core with unified policy, charging, and service capabilities. The Cisco Ultra Service Platform is a fully virtualized, 5G-ready mobile core that runs on a virtual hardware instance for better performance, scalability, and cost. At MWC 2017, Cisco introduced Ultra IoT, which evolves the Cisco Ultra Service Platform to support the 3GPP cellular IoT (CIoT) architecture. In this webinar, we’ll discuss Cisco Ultra IoT’s capabilities as an access-independent, virtualized mobile core optimized for IoT, including support for 3GPP connectivity, including NB-IoT and CAT-M1, as well as for unlicensed access such as Wi-Fi. We’ll also look at how Cisco Ultra IoT’s standardized open and secure APIs provide service providers new ways of monetization by exposing network intelligence and capabilities to IoT applications.

Cisco IoT solutions are helping service providers worldwide drive new opportunities in key segments, including Smart+Connected Communities, Connected Transportation, and Connected Asset Management (for example, financial, telco, utilities, buildings, and so on).
