Report: Analyzing IoT device performance

Telenor Connexion has combined real-time traffic monitoring with data analytics for IoT devices and networks to reduce the risk of signaling congestion and improve operational performance.

A small number of poorly configured connected devices can cause a signaling storm, degrading an IoT network’s performance and, in the worst case, resulting in a network blackout.

Across the globe, a multitude of different IoT devices are being deployed and connected by mobile networks. Signaling storms triggered by aggressive connected devices negatively affect IoT network congestion and performance. To avoid this, control plane data from devices, as well as the networks they connect to, needs to be monitored, analyzed and managed in real-time. Improving reliability is also a pre-requisite to enable collection, processing and analytics of user plane data generated by connected devices.
