Device Map and IoT
With the rapid growth in the quantity and diversity of cellular IoT devices, businesses need a comprehensive solution to understand their nature and capabilities. Device Map, a DeviceAtlas solution in partnership with the GSMA, provides businesses with the rich device insights they need.
With identification of nearly 50 classes of connected devices, across consumer and M2M devices, Device Map provides the tools to navigate the rapidly evolving landscape.Find out more
Device Map for Cellular IoT
Device Map enables measurement of IoT activity on your network. Explore how cellular IoT devices are used in the home and the workplace below.
in the Workplace Device Map identifies many everyday device types found in the workplace.
around the Home Device Map identifies many everyday device types found around the home.
The challenge for operators is that many of the new classes of terminal have very different behaviours on the network compared with the traditional voice and data capable cell phone.
Questions that arise:
How to distinguish between consumer and M2M devices?
How to forecast signalling capacity requirements at cell and network levels for IoT devices?
How to identify rate plan misuse, where the device used does not match the subscription?
In order to answer these questions, precise information on the nature and capabilities of cellular devices is required.
The Device MapSolution
Device Map categorises IoT devices as follows:
Features and Benefits
Device Map provides granular identification of IoT devices, indexed on TAC, enabling:
Device Map enables identification of M2M as opposed to consumer devices, allowing accurate capacity allocation in the network.
Permits distinguishing between traffic which is 100% IoT (IoT Endpoints) and traffic which may represent a mix of IoT and non-IoT traffic (IoT Enablers).
Facilitates the measurement of trends of IoT traffic, including levels of abuse of rate plans to ensure that the device usage/capability is aligned with the terms of the subscription.
Provides deep insight into the capabilities of an IoT device, for example identifying whether LTE-M and/or NB-IoT are supported, as an input to network planning.
