Optus M2M Control Centre Factsheet


Gain strategic insight - Optus M2M Control Centre puts everything from data utilisation and costs to performance and provisioning status at your fingertips. You'll see important usage trends, which customers are the most profitable, which devices are the most costly, and whether your devices are working as expected in the field.

Troubleshoot problems instantly - Run detailed diagnostics on any device, online and in real-time, whether on the Optus network or roaming internationally. Check provisioning status, see connection session history and view real-time connectivity status. Identify connectivity issues and get the information you need to get them resolved quickly.

Control costs - Start with a "no-touch activation experience" - automatically activating your devices on the network as soon as your end users or installers switch them on in the field.

Minimise manual effort and use the automation engine in the Optus M2M Control Centre to help you to save time and money.

Program rules...without programming - Set custom rules easily in the Optus M2M Control Centre user interface, allowing you to boost productivity or control costs.
