Take Control of your IoT
The adoption of the Internet of Things (IoT) is growing in every sector and industry, from consumer electronics and retail to transportation and logistics, and even healthcare. Organizations are leveraging the power of IoT to operate more efficiently, deliver better customer experiences, gather insights and improve decision-making around their business performance. But downtime of business-critical IoT-enabled devices can cost an organization loss of visibility into its operations, and lead to lost revenue, efficiency or even put people’s lives at risk.
An increasing reliance on IoT means an increase in management complexity, including: security, remote support, firmware updates and device analytics. How do you manage all the different device makes, models, firmware and communication protocols in a common enterprise IT infrastructure?
SOTI Connect is an IoT management solution that empowers organizations to effectively manage and gain visibility into the diverse and numerous IoT-enabled devices throughout their operations, while reducing the total cost of ownership (TCO) of those devices. Through a highly flexible, data-driven architecture that supports major communication protocols, SOTI Connect can quickly discover, configure and deploy new IoT-enabled devices, regardless of device make, model or firmware. It delivers access to real-time device information and the ability to store that information for future analysis.
Printer and Sensor Management
Smart devices, like industrial and mobile printers and sensors, enable organizations to automate, gather data, monitor every aspect of their IoT deployments, and pinpoint problems before they occur. Through a network of IoT-enabled devices that communicate with each other, organizations have been able to reduce operating costs and increase the productivity of their workers and operations.
Why Manage Your IoT-Enabled Devices with SOTI Connect
Single Point of Control Manage devices from many manufacturers using an array of communication protocols, all from a single pane of glass.
Rapid Deployment With a data-driven architecture, SOTI Connect can quickly discover, configure and deploy new IoT-enabled devices connected to your organization’s network.
Manage Various Device Types Robust management for industrial and mobile printers and sensors. Remotely view and access device status and logs, monitor device performance and create automated rules to execute actions when pre-defined conditions on the device are met.
Manage Various Device Levels SOTI Connect provides the ability to manage “dumb” devices with limited functionality, as well as “smart” devices with extensive capabilities and management requirements.
Data Analysis Provides a centralized solution for gathering device data and status, making it available to analytics tools.
Reduce Total Cost of Ownership By reducing the maintenance and overall management costs of distributed IoT networks, organizations can reduce the total cost of ownership of their IoT deployments.
