The platform gives users granular control over every feature of their process and connectivity, thus reducing their overall cost of ownership
LONDON, Oct. 4, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the global European market for wireless machine-to-machine (M2M) mobile connectivity for Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), Frost & Sullivan recognises EMnify with the 2018 European New Product Innovation Award. EMnify delivers its leading-edge M2M platform as a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), giving users the flexibility to connect, control, and manage their devices anytime, anywhere.
"EMnify's M2M platform adds true value to a company's digitised ecosystem, as it allows users to develop and manage their IIoT communications on a single platform," said Anisha Dumbre, Research Analyst. "The platform greatly eases the task of doing business by presenting clients with endpoint management and security solutions, application programming interfaces (APIs), dashboards, subscriber identification module (SIM) management solutions, and individual support. It does not restrict users to a single operator and lets them switch between different mobile operators through the lifecycle of the product. EMnify's global data network is compatible with 2G, 3G, and 4G (LTE) support."
Key Components of the EMnify offering:
- International, multi-operator coverage EMnify offers connectivity across more than 180 countries spanning over 540 cellular networks worldwide. Enterprises can switch between available networks at any time, which grants every customer full control over connectivity and associated costs.
- Powerful connectivity management platform Customers can easily manage all aspects of their connectivity, including creation and editing tariff profiles, limiting data consumption and setting permissions for each device. Real-time monitoring provides users with live usage and status reports. EMnify's RESTful API enables easier scalability with process automation.
- Secure device cloud EMnify provides all customers with their own private secure network environment. The data generated by the endpoints is being transferred directly to the application back-end via secure VPN access, while network-based firewalls allow access control and traffic filtering.
Unlike other providers, EMnify operates its own Mobile Core Network, which acts as an abstraction layer above the local radio access networks (RAN) and offers a globally consistent feature set. The platform employs a unique technology called Elastic Core Network (ECN), which has radio network-agnostic features that connect various devices and applications in a scalable and fully-configurable private device cloud. Using the platform, end users can create secure, virtual mobile networks for their devices.
"With the Dynamic Regional Internet Breakout, EMnify became the first provider that could help customer´s devices connect to the Internet at different interconnection locations, either based on device location or pre-configuration. This feature reduces the data latency, and simultaneously increases the quality of service," noted Anisha. "These innovations and technologies that increase the comfort, productivity, and cost efficiency of its product clearly demonstrate the company's commitment to enhancing the ownership experience for its customers."
