Is your Network ready for IoT?

IoT devices can vary significantly in behaviour and requirements. This has to be taken into consideration by modern (mobile) networks. 4G/LTE introduced features related to IoT: reduced bandwidth, extended timer to reduce battery usage and increase lifetime, optimization for signalling and user plane. 5G will follow this way and add new features like network slicing, whereas IoT devices with the same requirements can use their own virtual network. However, even the simplest IoT device can challenge the network, when deployed at scale. What happens if thousands of devices want to communicate at the same time? Will the signalling storm impact the network? Is the network able to recover? Is the dedicated 5G slice able to provide and guarantee required IoT parameters during mass deployment? This session will demonstrate how to validate mobile networks and ensure that they are ready from day one and that there are no unsolicited surprises during IoT mass deployment.

What you will take away from this session

  • General challenges of introducing IoT. What is the impact on a network when introducing massive IoT devices?
  • Spirent solutions to help validate IoT development: Solutions for developer; Solutions for network operators
  • Use cases how Spirent can help to develop and validate IoT
