Arm this week announced the launch of Pelion Connectivity Management 2.0, which includes a new advanced automation engine.

Pelion Connectivity Management already offered MNOs the simplicity of a single platform for managing IoT connectivity across all their device’s lifecycles. With the release of Pelion Connectivity Management 2.0, MNOs can now drive additional revenue opportunities by enabling their enterprise clients with capabilities for automatically configuring their IoT devices.  

These new automation capabilities significantly improve the IoT services, speed and reliability of connectivity that MNOs deliver to their enterprise customers – whether it’s the provisioning of new devices or ensuring monthly bills never go over a set threshold.

Automation capabilities now available with Pelion Connectivity Management 2.0 include, real-time data triggers, seamless remote Subscriber Identity Module (eSIM) provisioning management and automating business processes.

According to Arm, these new automation features are a direct result of MNO input and were a catalyst for our new agreement with NOS, the largest communications and entertainment group in Portugal. NOS plans to leverage Pelion Connectivity Management 2.0 to help monetize their IoT connectivity and expand their service to customers outside of Portugal.

Arm Pelion Connectivity Management’s pre-integrated global MNO partners, seamless integration with our existing network and systems, and new automation engine play an essential role in allowing us to scale our IoT connectivity service for our customers.

Network operators and enterprise customers might start with small estates of devices but look to scale up quickly as the benefits of IoT are realised. For millions (and potentially billions) of devices to be connected to telecoms networks in a timely, cost efficient, scalable way platform services will need to become increasingly automated.
