What Does the Future Hold for IoT Device Management Platforms?


A core purpose of deploying a commercial IoT solution is to reduce truck rolls for businesses. Remote hardware configurability has the potential to directly improve truck roll–related performance metrics. It can form a core part of the value proposition for future IoT device management services. Remote hardware configurability is the ability to turn on or off certain elements of the hardware, such as low-power wide-area transmitters and receivers. The trend toward common standards in the IoT industry includes not only newer industry standards like the Lightweight Machine-to-Machine (LWM2M) protocol but also FIDO Device Onboard (FDO). The former makes it possible to have remote hardware configurability while the latter addresses concerns about security when deploying IoT devices that are expected to become increasingly sophisticated in their hardware configurability functions in the field.
