Initially announced at Mobile World Congress Barcelona, the solution is based on Cisco’s mobile core technology and IoT portfolio, including IoT sensors, gateways, device management software, as well as monitoring and dashboard tools. Open Radio Access Network (ORAN) technology is an important part of the solution. Cisco is collaborating closely with ORAN providers JMA and Airspan, and is actively conducting client trials with their technology.

Cisco also announced upgrades to its internet of things (IoT) portfolio at MWC, allowing service provider clients to manage LPWAN/4G/5G IoT connections for new and developing use cases in a more straightforward manner.
Cisco IoT Control Center now fulfills industry needs for Mass IoT with a new simplified and secure connectivity management package purpose-built for lower complexity IoT devices. Cisco IoT Control Center manages nearly 200 million devices today, across all licensed cellular networks (LPWAN/4G/5G), giving operators and enterprises the flexibility to choose thae network that works best for their use case.
Stationary devices are frequently linked over vast regions using 3GPP LPWAN networks due to their low bandwidth consumption and predictable usage patterns. From a water metre that delivers a burst of data once a week to a city parking metre that processes transactions all day and night, LPWAN enables a wide range of IoT use cases. These devices are easier to handle remotely than those that require continuous, real-time, mission-critical data collecting, such as linked autos.
Service providers can now cover the complete spectrum of enterprise use cases – from low to high complexity – from a single platform with Cisco’s new Cisco IoT Control Center subscription service. The new solution simplifies connectivity maintenance and costs without sacrificing quality, allowing service providers to generate new income streams and capitalise on new Mass IoT market prospects.
