We first introduced our Control Center IoT connectivity management platform to the market over 10 years ago, and since then it has become the largest IoT platform with over 43M devices being managed today, and more than 1.5M new devices being added per month, said Jahangir Mohammed, GM of IoT at Cisco. What weve learned from enabling IoT success for our 11K customers is that companies have different needs at different stages of their IoT journey. So today were introducing the biggest evolution of our Control Center IoT platform ever, providing a flexible model and new Premium Services that help meet the needs of customers at any phase.

Premium Services:The introduction of our first two Premium Services, compatible with Control Center, enables customers to solve for previously unmet IoT business needs. TheThreat Protection & Smart Security (TPSS)service provides an IoT-specific solution to protect against malware and other cybersecurity threats, and is built on Cisco Umbrella. The second service,Traffic Segmentation, provides a new solution to support different types of revenue generation models. Cisco Jasper service providers can customize Premium Services to meet their customers specific needs.

Enhanced Analytics:New reports on historical trends of device behavior and usage enable users to take action on issues that impact performance, costs and security.

When we acquired Jasper, we made a promise to the industry that Cisco and Jasper would be more than the sum of our separate parts that we would create something better together, said Rowan Trollope, SVP and GM of IoT and Applications at Cisco. This is the realization of that promise. And what weve built in the past year has surpassed even our lofty expectations.

Control Center 7.0 addresses business needs for greater flexibility with a new multi-tiered IoT platform that gives companies various options to meet their specific needs, regardless of their stage of IoT implementation. This new platform is also paired with a new set of Premium Services that address previously unmet needs in the industry related to IoT monetization and security.

With Control Center 7.0, Cisco Jasper has created a single, integrated solution to address the needs of both Information Technology (IT) and Operational Technology (OT) professionals. Previously, Control Center which automates and manages connectivity of devices on cellular networks globally was a standalone offering. Today, Control Center 7.0 is yet another proof point of Ciscos leading innovation in IoT solutions, and is now compatible withCiscos broader IoT Operations Platform, which integrates Connection Management, Data Delivery and Fog Computing for a complete end-to-end solution. And this complements the Cisco DNA offerings, which are delivering the next generation of networks to provide new levels of security, analytics and automation to enable exciting new IoT, cloud and mobile experiences. As a result, customers in any industry can now manage IoT from the edge to the cloud.
