Creating scalable and sustainable processes is key for any business – even more so with IoT. For companies rolling out connected devices and services, having efficient ways to manage that connectivity is critical to running a profitable business. Think automation.

Imagine an enterprise like ChargePoint, which runs the largest electric vehicle (EV) charging network in the world. They need to monitor and manage connectivity for more than 31,000 charging stations across multiple countries – all day, every day.

It’s a monumental task to ensure every station connects properly and behaves as expected. Doing that manually would be time and cost prohibitive, so ChargePoint automates connectivity management with the Cisco Jasper Control Center platform.

You make the rules, Control Center does the work
In the case of ChargePoint, suppose they expect a point-of-sale device on a charging station to consume 10-15MB of data per month. They need to know if consumption drops much lower or spikes higher, so they can investigate a potential problem.

Using the Cisco Jasper platform, they could set up an automated rule that says if any device exceeds 15MB of data, Control Center should deactivate it from the network and send alerts to the operations team. The platform will then constantly analyze devices on all EV stations, and take action as needed to help ChargePoint avoid unexpected costs and take quick action to resolve issues.

Your company can assign any number of rules to control the entire device lifecycle, from testing to activation to retirement. Automated rules enable you to configure once for a single device and scale it to all your devices anywhere in the world. It’s a powerful way to lower operational costs, while ensuring the highest service reliability and customer satisfaction.

In part 2 of our video tour series on Control Center, we focus on Lifecycle Automation. You’ll take a look under the hood to see how easy it is to set up automated rules to manage data usage and costs.

Check out part 1 of this blog series to learn about the key challenges of running an IoT business, and stay tuned for part 3 where we highlight how Control Center helps you lower costs and eliminate unpredictable spend. Read the full series here
