M2M Connectivity

M2M Connectivity

Remote Management of Machine-to-Machine SIM Cards

This service is designed for clients who already subscribe to the Managed Connectivity or POS Móvel Plus (POS Mobile Plus) services in our M2M Solutions and who wish to manage their SIM cards remotely.

The service allows clients to incorporate functions available through the M2M solutions self-care portal into their own applications or to create new solutions that facilitate the remote management of their M2M cards.

  • Request a replacement card
  • Request location (check the location of the card at the time)

    • Configurations of a service instance's resource activity (parameterisation of expected times between communication sessions)

User Management Operations for the M2M Self-care Platform

  • Look up the list of users
  • Add user
  • Look up user
  • Change user

This can be used, for example, to:

  • Change M2M card statuses or activate /deactivate the communication services in close conjunction with your business needs.
  • Check the location of the M2M cards in the application that has already been used by your operatives in the field.
  • Incorporate card configurations and connectivity point details into your products and services inventory application.
  • Incorporate date/time information on the last communication effected by each card in the client's alarm system. This will enable you to immediately identify any cards with irregular communication patterns.
  • Centralise user management in your corporate application.
