IoT Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS)

Simfony Mobile IoT Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) delivers powerful M2M services as a stand-alone solution which is cloud-based, cost efficient, and which requires short time-to-market, perfect for Service Providers, MNOs and MVNOs. Simfony PaaS is enabling them to quickly deliver own-branded IoT products and services in multi-national, multi-level and multi-operator environments.

Why Simfony PaaS Benefits What Your Customers Get Partners

Through Simfony IoT Platform-as-a-Service, Service Providers, MVNOs and MNOs can provide managed 3GPP, LoRa connectivity and SIM management services. Simfony IoT PaaS is available for Mobile Network Operators, but is also great for Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNOs) looking to expand their range of services.

Now, Communication Service Providers (CSPs) can:
  • Have in a matter of weeks a complete white label solution available instantly for resale;
  • Quickly monetize opportunities brought by M2M and adopt a PaaS solution with included customer service, complex ordering and consumer billing;
  • Help their customers implement and develop projects at an international scale - through global connectivity covering more than 190 countries;
  • Launch cost-effective M2M products and services for business customers in a fast time-to-market environment;
  • Have complete control, ownership, flexibility and integration with their existing line of products;
  • Benefit from a complete range of professional services and support delivering a seamless integration and your special custom requests.

What Your Customers Get

Simfony IoT Platform-as-a-Service Solution for Service Providers offers you a multi-layered structure that covers all M2M and IoT communications vital needs.

Self-care functionality is extremely important for an IoT Management PaaS. That is why our Web Dashboard built-in capabilities offer key business data and services information, such as:  

Real-time network information presence services
These provide real-time information regarding the Network Attach Status and Data Session PDP status for each endpoint. Instant network view is available for each SIM-enabled or LoRa-enabled device. Online notifications are also available for main events received in the platform.  

Current usage and billing information
Billing information is presented for each provisioned SIM card as well as like aggregated information for the entire SIM fleet. Data alerting and capping are also available for data usage control.  

Location based services
Platform users can query and instantly find the geographic location of any of their wireless devices on the Simfony Mobile network. Service is 100% network based and no extra software is needed.  

Rich configuration options
Configuration options include enabling or disabling Data or SMS services, APN credentials authentication and authorization, device-based locking as well as global operational service areas definition.  

Automatic Device Detection
Based on the unique International Mobile Equipment Identification number (IMEI) of the hardware module that the SIM is currently connected with, Simfony platform automatically detects the hardware model, manufacturer and radio bands that the module is operating on.

Build and run custom applications without the need to write a single line of code
Node-RED is a visual tool for wiring the Internet of Things which implements a graphical process designer in an intuitive, drag-and-drop manner. You can quickly create new services through leveraging Node-RED’s growing community and Simfony’s communication and analytics assets.  

Use our integrated application designer
The Cloud Platform provides a working framework necessary throughout all stages of an IoT project. It is up to you to choose what you use the platform for, e.g. prototyping, design, test or run a production environment. The application designer is integrated with the platform API, making it easy for you to interact with device meta-data and communication features.

Business Support Layer is responsible for the day-to-day operations carried out by MNO personnel or wholesale partners. It provides a rich user interface and related processes to enable M2M partners to handle core M2M business processes, such as:

  • Self-ordering and management of SIM cards
  • Self-provisioning
  • Tariff catalog and Business offers configuration
  • Creation and tracking of trouble tickets
  • Maintenance of end-customer related information
  • Life cycle management of devices
  • Online viewing and analysis of usage data

The Network Interface Layer manages real-time aspects of M2M devices. Some functions handled by the network layer:

  • Device Authentication and Authorization: real-time device authentication, service authorization and ongoing monitoring.
  • Connectivity Management: M2M services require high-end “service levels” with capabilities for SIM self-diagnosis and troubleshooting. Query of different network elements is required to expose the real status of a device.
  • SIM-Level Usage Monitoring: real-time usage information collected for monitoring SIM behavior patterns for minimizing improper usage of devices, implemented using standard protocols (E.g. Diameter Gy).
  • Provisioning Module: M2M Device Provisioning component handles business process instructions to change device information in network elements by executing provisioning commands towards Simfony 3GPP Core Network functions (HLR, AAA, CCS).
  • Roaming with Operators in more than 190 countries worldwide.
