IoT CCS Use Cases – The Utilities Sector

Usually, operators’ mobile core and OSS/BSS teams prioritize stability before being fast on their feet, implementing every change requested by demanding customers.

With Enea Aptilo IoT Connectivity Control Service (IoT CCS), mobile operators can free themselves from these limitations. It gives them the freedom to innovate IoT services that were impossible to achieve in a strict 3GPP environment. As a result, mobile operators can easily tailor IoT connectivity services to the specific needs of different customer types.

In our series of end-customer use cases, the time has come to discuss the need for IoT connectivity in the utilities sector.

Utilities – Huge Volumes of Simple Devices

IoT CCS enabling the utlities sector with IoT connectivity for meters

Customers may need to connect hundreds of thousands, maybe millions, of IoT devices in the utilities sector. Devices like electrical meters are efficient in power and data consumption and use cost-efficient hardware. As a result, they often lack security features such as VPN connectivity.

These devices have a vulnerable position in people’s homes. Thus, they need to be protected by firewalls. To further decrease vulnerability, only allowing traffic to specific destinations is essential. Some traffic may also need to be delivered through Enterprise VPN enabled by,e.g., the Multitenancy Private APN functionality in Enea Aptilo IoT CCS.

Anomalies in the traffic patterns may also need to be analyzed.
