NB-IoT | M2M
Everybody is talking about the Digital Revolution changing every aspect of our lives as well as our entire world. We have long since become accustomed to being connected all the time, both in our private lives and our career. The 'Internet of Things', one of the mainstays of the Digital Revolution, drives this interconnectedness and is expanding it to all types of objects. For the business community, new opportunities and new challenges are emerging at breathtaking speed:
Interconnected objects capable of continuously providing information about themselves make it possible to devise solutions to problems as well as new business models.
M2M (machine-to-machine) communication allows a fully automated transmission of data between different devices and systems without any need for human intervention, making it one of the preconditions for Industry 4.0 and IoT. NarrowBand IoT (NB-IoT) wireless technology is one of the most promising innovations in M2M communication for the Internet of Things. Network Slicing in the 5G network - i.e. the provision of individual networks with a wide range of characteristics - based on a single large infrastructure, is also known as campus networks.

Control & Data Security
Mobile Device Management (MDM) forms the basis for managing mobile terminal devices within a company. Using MDM or Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) you can manage all terminal devices centrally and protect your mobile communications equipment from unauthorized access in conformity with the requirements set out in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Companies permitting their employees the use their devices also for private purposes are forced to apply advanced solutions focusing on the administration of isolated job-related partitions (containerization) or corporate applications incorporating all associated data (Mobile Application Management - MAM) instead of managing entire devices. MDM is nonetheless the basis for any comprehensive enterprise mobility solution and unified endpoint management including the administration of Windows 10 and MacOSX - however, the system administrator accesses the end devices by default in these solutions, which in turn can become a disadvantage.
As a security solution that compensates for this disadvantage, secure, because encrypted containers are available. Containers separate between work and private apps and data on the same device. This strict separation does not give third-party apps or even malware a chance to access sensitive business information. At the same time, the privacy of users remains protected. The company's IT only has access to the data of the business container app, but not to the employee's private data, i.e. not to the device itself. There are also containers that are integrated into the MDM. But the most flexible is a container solution that can be operated with or without an MDM.
As the providers and solutions offered on the market are so varied and numerous, a professional market comparison makes good sense.
Let's talk about it, we will be glad to assist and support you during the procurement stage.
Hardware & replacement programs
Purchases of mobile phones are frequently part of existing mobile communications agreements although strictly speaking, they have nothing to do with the applicable rate structures. It's admittedly easier for administrators to simply place their orders with their mobile communications provider. According to our project experience, however, the trend is now leaning towards the opposite direction, i.e. the separation of subsidizing agreements from price models themselves. So what's better - purchasing terminal devices directly from one's mobile communications provider or on the open market? What are the challenges of operating models such as BYOD, COD, CYOD, ..?
By the way, did you know that there is a slightly different way of procuring mobile phones? A way that perfectly supports an efficient life cycle management within your company? Such an option involves using hardware instead of company-owned assets. We would be pleased to show you the price advantages of such usage concepts in conjunction with modern technology exchange methodology.
Ensuring optimum hardware procurement is part and parcel of each of our mobile communications projects.
