Use case: smart products thanks to the Connectivity Management Platform

For this Swiss manufacturer of smart bicycles, data reliability and security are essential. That’s why it opted for the reliable, globally available Connectivity Management Platform from Swisscom, which includes data hosting in Switzerland as well as 24/7 support that is already available before the rollout.

The manufacturer uses the ‘Ordering on demand’ feature on the Connectivity Management portal to order the required SIM cards online. It sends the SIMs directly to the factory outside of Switzerland where they are installed in the bicycles.

With ‘test ready’ mode, tests are completed directly in the factory without additional roaming costs. Technical issues are identified immediately before the product enters the value chain.

Thanks to the Connectivity Management Platform’s web-based user interface, the manufacturer has a complete overview of the entire distribution and can control connectivity centrally. The bicycle can thus be adapted to country-specific requirements.

The fully scalable connectivity management solution is easily adjusted to the manufacturer’s increasing requirements. For the global expansion, Swisscom delivers connectivity from a single source – through its more than 700 roaming partner companies. This means there is no need to manage different mobile providers, tariffs and platforms.

The user-friendly Connectivity Management dashboard gives a clear overview of all agreed connectivity services and applications. If a new feature should impact connectivity, the manufacturer can easily change the tariffs accordingly. Bundling and data pooling can be adjusted dynamically.

The manufacturer introduces new features for its end customers. For example, a localisation function for tracking stolen bicycles via the Connectivity Management Platform. The manufacturer can integrate additional services via firmware updates.

With the preconfigured report, the manufacturer has access to detailed information about all connectivity-related activities at all times. It has complete control.

Sending invoices has never been easier: Thanks to flexible invoicing models, the bicycle manufacturer can take care of the connectivity costs and send its customers invoices for ‘connected bike services’.
