Will your legacy infrastructure sustain the volume, quality and the costs associated with IoT?
The Internet of Things (IoT) “industry” is in its early stages right now. With the proliferation of IoT, the needs of enterprises to manage and optimize their connectivity costs is now crucial to growth. So far, there is no clear business model, application or trend that is perceived to lead the industry. There are many different models, tools and platforms, applications and solutions but none of them have emerged as a “Killer App” yet.
In preparation for the expected explosive growth of IoT, Telecom Operators will need to provide their enterprise customers with a robust, yet flexible platform to optimize the usage and connectivity of their devices. The problem is that Telecom Operators’ infrastructure was not designed to handle the huge number of devices and sensors that are expected to be deployed by customers. They will also expect additional services such as flexible rates and billing plans, various types of provisioning statuses — active, in test, suspended, etc. multiple billing levels. The legacy infrastructure of most of the operators cannot sustain the volume, the quality and the costs associated with this new exploding demand.
With the uncertainty on the ROI, most Telecom operators are hesitant to go through a complete modernization of their current IT infrastructure, especially since they need to prioritize their expenses with newer technologies like 5G.
