Nokia recently launched the Intelligent Management Platform for All Connected Things (IMPACT), extending its device management leadership to operators, enterprises and governments, providing these players with a secure platform on which they can scale new IoT services. The new platform includes Nokia’s Motive Connected Device Platform(CDP), its converged device management platform and integrates all Nokia mobile and IoT device management software.
IMPACT handles data collection, event processing, device management, data contextualization, data analytics, end-to-end security and applications enablement for any device, any protocol and across any application. Nokia claims that in addition to providing lifecycle management for more than 80,000 models of broadband, home and IoT devices from 100 of the world’s top manufacturers, leveraging Motive CDP, IMPACT can detect new device formats that come to the market.
Nokia said that IMPACT has factored in the increasing security requirements including network, cloud and end-point security. It also implements the latest Lightweight M2M (LWM2M) security model for IoT device management and is backed by Nokia’s extensive security portfolio.
