Sprint announces the launch of Sprint Command Center
A centralized, secure, self-service portal offering unprecedented control over Machine-to-Machine (M2M) devices and services. The latest M2M empowerment tool from Sprint offers a convenient, comprehensive platform that allows businesses to control provisioning, billing, management and solution/application development of their own M2M solution.
With Sprint Command Center you can easily implement many automated or on-the-fly device management features, such as activations, deactivations, suspensions and more for a single device or thousands of devices. Activations can be pre set based upon set dates in time, or by specific types of usage. And when it comes to conducting remote testing of devices in the field, you can even wake up a powered-down device using our unique "shoulder-tap" technology and run your diagnostics.
Advanced Billing Solutions
Our Command Center billing system offers dynamic rate plan capabilities and flexible pooling arrangements. It also provides a Business Rule Engine for device billing. And it gives you greater control over costs by allowing you to set multiple types of customized billing triggers. For example, the device's assigned billing plan starts only when a pre-defined usage threshold is reached.
More Powerful Management Tools
When it comes to greatly enhancing your management control, our Command Center offers you a wide array of policy enforcement tools. So you can manage the unique needs of your devices based upon time of day, geography, usage limits, and more. You can also gain total visibility to your connected business using our robust asset tracking. And you'll benefit from a high level of security, including secure VPN connectivity and static IP addresses.
