Cisco Jasper has released Control Center 7.0, a multi-tier IoT management platform that provides businesses with greater flexibility by giving them options to meet specific needs, regardless of where they are in IoT implementation, including advanced security, automation, and analytics.
According to Cisco, the first major upgrade to the company’s IoT platform since it acquired Jasper for $1.4 billion in February 2016, will provide companies various options to meet their specific needs, regardless of their stage of IoT implementation.
The new Control Center 7.0 is designed to offer;
- Advanced Capabilities: A new tier of the platform – Control Center Advanced – caters to customers with more sophisticated deployments that need greater capabilities, including advanced security solutions, automation and analytics.
- Premium Services: The introduction of our first two Premium Services, compatible with Control Center, enables customers to solve for previously unmet IoT business needs. The Threat Protection & Smart Security (TPSS) service provides an IoT-specific solution to protect against malware and other cybersecurity threats, and is built on Cisco Umbrella. The second service, Traffic Segmentation, provides a new solution to support different types of revenue generation models. Cisco Jasper service providers can customize Premium Services to meet their customers’ specific needs.
- LPWAN Support: Control Center 7.0 extends the platform’s capabilities – including the platform’s global reach and scale via support for cellular networks – to low power devices via support for multiple LPWAN technologies, including NB-IoT and LTE-M.
AT&T, a Cisco Jasper service provider, is integrating these additional capabilities to meet IoT needs for a broad range of industries. The platform will be called AT&T Control Center – Advanced, and will be paired with additional premium services.
