equirements

Manage different QoS for different
needs:

Traffic congestion


Ability to
prioritise

traffic for critical points (“Gold users”


only
3G)


Not able to
prioritise

traffic from different services from a
single M2M connection. Solution coming from customer side

Manage available bandwidth for critical services


In worst scenario a 3G BTS keeps up to 600 kbps for data
services


Assigning to critical substations a “gold” QoS and working
over 3G network, Vodafone guarantees a 4kbps capacity for
at least 99,8% time

Massive deployment support and administration tools


Support 1000 weekly sites deployment.


Test SIM state for aligning to customer processes


Advanced reporting and supervision system (integrated
via APIs)

Advanced operation control:
