About the Event
Virtually all communication devices today contain a wealth of information about their status, location, usage, and performance. Until recently, this information has gone largely un-harvested and un-leveraged, even though it can offer extraordinary business benefits to the companies that manufacture, support and service those products, especially in terms of customer relationships. Maintaining active, open, scalable and secure channels with the device to collect feedback embedded management statistics and observes the overall device behavior in the field is perhaps the most critical value of smart services. They greatly benefit both network suppliers and customers. Network suppliers utilize the collected information to drive their go-to-market strategy that includes new and enhanced products, features, and services. Companies often uses the acquired data to drive the so-called Pareto Principle by targeting the top 20% set of enhancements first that are needed by 80% of the customers.
