Why should operators consider a cloud hosted core for IoT services?
IoT has very different signalling and traffic patterns to regular mobile subscribes. A relatively higher signalling load and very variable data traffic patterns from very low to very high.
Existing cores are not dimensioned for IoT, a cloud hosted core for IoT frees the operators’ network to serve non IoT traffic. Furthermore, a cloud hosted core is elastic in nature, expanding capacity on demand. This avoids the need to invest upfront, to serve traffic that may or may not happen.
Such solutions also come with an IoT ready API to allow customers to integrate the connectivity into their IoT application or service. As well as flexible billing systems to allow operators to be creative in the packages they offer IoT users.
