Hanhaa’s mobile network, Hanhaa XG, will provide cellular connectivity to establish a secure IP layer for the transit of sensor data so that it can be visible on Excel as a report. Hanhaa XG cellular connectivity will provide a secure data layer making the service secure and protected for the benefit of the customer and their data. The sensor will need to use an embedded SIM supplied by Hanhaa XG. The cellular connectivity will be part of the end to end service. Where other IP connectivity is supplied, then data will not use the secure Hanhaa XG network.
Hanhaa XG will provide additional security through the cellular connectivity by use of a service level APN dedicated to Symbisa. Hanhaa XG is the mobile network operator and therefore has full control over the allocation of internal IP addressing and the routing of data flows to the benefit of the customer and the security of the data passing through the network. Security is one of the key selling points of this type of service.
Billing has been defined per device at the point it is created against the framework. Effectively each device will have an event, or multiple events decremented from a customer account every time their devices uploaded data. When the user runs out of credit their device will no longer be able to upload data. Today there are few, if any IoT platforms that allow for pre-paid billing based on events. The majority would be based on data amounts, and the place it’s consumed.
The reseller will purchase credits in advance from Hanhaa and be responsible for the re-sale of credits to their customers. The reseller wants to own the billing relationship with the customer. This ensures the reseller has a recurring revenue stream, for device usage.
Thanks to Symbisa, anyone with basic spreadsheet knowledge can start exploring the possibilities of IoT, interpreting sensor data, developing dashboards, triggering events and auto creating charts or tables that require follow-on actions. The user will be able to go from unboxing to live data streams in just minutes.
