Verizon Offers M2M Management Solution
Verizon today announced the availability of the Machine to Machine Management solution, which is aimed at helping enterprise customers get near real-time access to monitor wireless devices.
The carrier says the new solution, which is slated for launch later this month, will give enterprise customers tools to implement new business models, improve time-to-market, reduce operating costs and track key performance indicators and enhance aftermarket services.
The Machine to Machine Management Center allows enterprises to connect any device to back-office or field service applications or infrastructure over the Verizon Wireless network. Customers can access an integrated dashboard to manage network connections, self-service device management and other key elements of machine to machine connectivity.
Additionally, customers can access the solution directly through Verizon's MyBusiness or the Verizon Enterprise Center, or through customers' business-specific applications.
"We've been trialing the new software platform on the Verizon Wireless network for connecting our Breath Alcohol Ignition Interlock Devices (BAIID) to public safety authorities," said Dave Arringdale, president and CEO of Consumer Safety Technology, in a statement. "The trials have been successful, and we will be integrating the solution into our back-office systems through the nPhase unified Web services so that we can automate and manage our M2M processes with a single standard system."
The new solution is a product of nPhase, the joint venture established last summer between Qualcomm and Verizon Wireless.
