Device management

Managing various classes of gateways and devices – the foundation of any IoT solution

Device management: a crucial consideration in IoT deployments

Given the ever-growing number of devices in the IoT, it is crucial to devote proper consideration to device management. This is the foundation of any IoT solution. It is what enables companies to stay on top of the heterogeneity and diversity of constantly evolving devices and assets, thus ensuring that an IoT solution stays up and running even as technology evolves. A sophisticated device management solution addresses the various challenges involved in IoT deployments:

  • A variety of different device classes come together.
  • Depending on the domain, companies have to deal with various protocols, legacy systems, and standards.
  • Given the large number of devices distributed around the world, it becomes increasingly difficult to keep track.
  • With IoT deployments growing in scale, managing devices in the field becomes more complex over time.
  • Companies have to ensure that their IoT deployments are secure.

Use case overview

  • As a foundation of any IoT solution, device management is a crucial consideration.
  • Device management enables companies to cope with the heterogeneity and diversity of constantly evolving devices and assets.
  • It enables companies to manage devices throughout their entire life cycle.

How companies benefit from device management

Device management enables companies to keep tabs on their devices throughout their whole life cycle. What makes robust device management a key consideration?

Tying a heterogeneous device landscape together

With device management, various protocols, legacy systems, and standards can be brought together onto one platform.

Ensuring that devices are up to date

Device management enables companies to securely provide software and firmware updates to their devices.

Early diagnosis of security issues

Device management ensures security via device authentication and various other provisions. This also ensures the accuracy of reporting for diagnostics.

Managing multiple configuration settings with no manual intervention

Device management allows for flexible and dynamic logical groupings of devices. It is therefore possible to trigger mass actions based on rules and to run saved actions at a scheduled time or event.

Keeping track of device states

Device management enables remote device monitoring and diagnostics so as to minimize downtime and streamline operations.
