Sprint Helps Businesses Command Control of IoT

By

Connected devices continue to multiply, and some of these things are in the most difficult to access places. To help keep them within reach of its business customers, Sprint today officially announced the Sprint Command Center 2.0.

The platform empowers organizations leveraging M2M to provision and manage their connected devices via a single pane of glass. That enables businesses to scale their IoT devices as needed while still keeping their implementations manageable – even if they involve devices at a wide variety of far-flung locations.

Home security company SecureNet Technologies is using the platform for rapid deployment of customizable smart home-as-a-service features, including home automation, video monitoring, environment control, energy management, and interactive alarm control.

“Sprint M2M Command Center 2.0’s loading activation feature and robust reporting capabilities are critical to our success and our customers’ satisfaction,” said Andrew Wilson, CEO of SecureNet, a provider of customizable smart home services, including home automation, video monitoring, environment control, energy management, and interactive alarm control. “With the Pre-Activation/Billing on the Command Center platform, we can test and validate data calls to confirm there are no device, module, network or data center concerns. We have unwavering trust in the Sprint Command Center portal.”

Mo Nasser says 2.0 is Sprint’s next step in addressing the expanding IoT world, in which we’ll see growth both domestically and internationally. Version 2.0, a new global iteration of the Command Center Sprint launched four years ago, is now available in 220 countries.

The Command Center allows customers to see all their devices from one place, from one portal, explains Nasser, who is Sprint’s senior director of M2M product, platforms, and marketing. “You can use this one portal to manage devices in Portugal, China, the U.S. – anywhere.”

Softbank, which now owns more 80than 85 percent of Sprint, brings an international perspective to the service provider’s business, Nasser adds. In fact, Softbank is a customer of Command Center 2.0, which the company is using to expand globally the M2M program it started in Japan.

Sprint also is working on an initiative that will involve partnering with three or four other carriers and the use of the Command Center 2.0 to offer customers least cost routing for their M2M traffic. That way, M2M customers will get the best pricing for connectivity around the world.
