Ensure the most effective connectivity for every IoT application

There is a range of connectivity technologies for IoT from which to choose. Nevertheless, every use case has specific needs, which translate into certain technology considerations that determine the most suitable choice.

For IoT applications requiring global coverage and mobility, cellular technologies, such as LTE-M, NB-IoT, and 5G, will be the best fit. When successfully deployed, IoT applications have the potential to improve companies’ revenues and costs.

To achieve this, the first step is to ensure flexible, agile, and reliable connectivity. Mobileum provides essential testing requirements for IoT connectivity which include:
  • Validate IoT network availability
  • Test APN connectivity and latency
  • Verify application server (Echo) accessibility & round-trip time
  • Measure data transfer speed (TCP/UDP)
  • Test VoLTE and SMS services (LTE-M)

Test and monitor the IoT platform to warrant E2E IoT business solutions

The Internet of Things consists of billions of interconnected devices, which generate tremendous amounts of data but also places heavy loads on key IoT components.

To succeed in the IoT market, application developers must thoroughly test and monitor the end-to-end IoT business solutions, including the functional role of IoT platforms.

The complex architecture of IoT systems mandate several types of testing. In order to ensure the connectivity to the IoT application platform, Mobileum provides specific testing capabilities, such as:
  • Test IoT platform availability and authentication
  • Ensure data integrity transfer with configurable payloads
  • Automate application monitoring

Avoid preventable costs by maximizing battery life of low-power IoT smart devices

Increasing the battery life of Internet of Things (IoT) devices is one of the key goals. There are two essential power-saving features: Power Saving Mode (PSM) and Extended Discontinuous Reception (eDRX).

Network topology and the choice of protocols both have an impact on the budget required to maintain the device's battery running. Power Saving Mode (PSM) is one of the essential features of LPWAN technologies such as NB-IoT and LTE-M.

On the other side, Discontinuous Reception (DRX) is a common feature used in today's LTE networks that helps the device to save power by switching off the receiving section of the cellular module for a fraction of a second. As part of our testing and monitoring services for IoT power-saving features we:
  • Ensure that networks support and negotiate correctly PSM and/or eDRX timers according to the different IoT application requirements
  • Verify tracking area update performance after Power Saving Mode
  • Validate data and SMS delivery after/during Power Saving Mode

Guarantee your MVNOs the optimal IoT services connectivity and power-saving features

A critical infrastructure component is the APN (Access Point Name), which is essentially a gateway that interconnects with the Radio Access Networks and the public internet.

MVNO’s will typically implement their own private APNs and provide private IP address ranges that keep IoT data separate from the public internet. This avoids security risks associated with the internet and improves system latency:
  • IoT testing solution ensures end-to-end quality of service by monitoring connectivity issues and devices' power consumption
  • Wrong APN configuration in the device (a different APN from the one which provides the correct connectivity)
  • Configuration of IoT device with invalid APNs
  • Failures on IoT device authentication (based on specific APN) towards IoT service platform.
Guarantee your MVNOs the optimal IoT services connectivity

Guarantee SLAs for IoT service charging and billing contracts

As new vertical solutions continue to push the boundaries of wireless technologies, new opportunities are opening for service providers within cellular IoT connectivity.

For a time-critical communication service that is requested by a consumer, a data session with a suitable QoS flow profile needs to be established according to a corresponding service subscription. Larger customers, like enterprises, may be interested in connectivity for an entire device group and for each of them they will agree on SLAs with their connectivity provider.

Along with IoT testing capabilities for the end-to-end value chain, Mobileum provides risk management capabilities that monitor connectivity services delivered and their contract level, namely in the following areas:
  • IoT & connectivity provisioning assurance
  • IoT & connectivity usage assurance
  • IoT & connectivity charging validation
