Sprint Command Center Launched by Sprint

By Anshu Shrivastava June 27, 2011

Sprint has launched Sprint Command Center, saying that it’s a centralized, self-service portal that offers control over machine-to-machine (M2M) devices and services.

Wayne Ward, vice president of Emerging Solutions Group at Sprint, said that Sprint Command Center helps drive enhanced innovation in functions that depend on reliable, fast communication, including energy management, transportation, telematics, mobile healthcare, mobile security, and digital signage.

A self-service management platform for M2M devices and services, Sprint Command Center enables businesses to control a single device – or thousands of devices – from Sprint's secure online portal.

This latest M2M empowerment tool offers a comprehensive platform, allowing businesses to control provisioning, billing, management and solution/application development of their own M2M solution.

Company officials said that Sprint's Command Center includes a built-in, encrypted VPN security standard, and does not require additional services to achieve a secure connection. 

 Additional key features and benefits include convenient management of M2M devices and services; secure platform and connectivity for protected access; remote control of key management tasks; automated pre-provisioning, activations and un-suspensions; and more. 

With Sprint Command Center, businesses can manage services via Web portal or direct API access. In addition, they can also leverage existing enterprise applications to control devices and services.

User can benefit from Sprint's expertise to manufacture customizable devices, test connectivity and deploy to the field before generating monthly recurring charges through automatic activation triggers.

In addition to adding, removing, suspending, and un-suspending devices, companies can also view detailed and summary usage records and billing information, and create custom user notifications based on usage thresholds.

Leveraging technology from prominent ecosystem participants into the Sprint billing platform, Sprint has developed a tightly integrated platform. Company officials said that the benefit to business users and developers is a simplified, easy-to-use, secure application that enables an enterprise to easily manage the growing number of M2M devices without requiring separate charges.

“We are able to leverage the Sprint Command Center to manage the growing number of electric charging stations, including remote activation and upgrades, plus the ability to collect data wirelessly for billing, security and other services,” said Jonathan Read, CEO at ECOtality.

Earlier this month, Sprint and Motorola Mobility renewed their business relationship with an aim to introduce more innovation to their respective devices.
