Arm launched new automation features for its Pelion Connectivity Management software to help organizations supervise a multitude of IoT devices across different networks.

NOS, a top mobile network operator in Portugal is deploying Pelion Connectivity Management 2.0 with its new automation engine to manage its entire global IoT subscriber base.

Pelion wanted an IoT connectivity management service that could provide a single pane of glass for oversight of different underlying technologies in different geographies, Carlos Lourenco, director of corporate IoT for NOS, said in a statement. Lourenco said such a platform is valuable as NOS has enterprise customers who are expanding internationally. Also, NOS needs configuration management for NB-IoT and eSIM technologies.

Arm described the new automation capabilities in a blog on Aug. 1. They include real time data triggers, eSIM provisioning management and automation of business processes.

Arm said that NOS will migrate its entire IoT subscriber base to Pelion 2.0, enabling the operator to run analytics on network performance and device provisioning and also automate processes and settings based on data usage or timeframes. While 2.0 is available for mobile network operations, select enterprise customers will get access to a beta version.

In order to scale up quickly for the benefits of IoT, carriers and enterprises will need network configuration automation, said Michele Mackenzie, an analyst at Analysys Mason.
