PS! We have published a new article that gives a clear overview of 1oT Terminal eSIM management capabilities.
The 1oT Terminal is a platform where cellular-based IoT devices can be monitored and managed hassle-free. In this post we wish to introduce basic functions users can apply on the platform and show how our web based application looks like (as of August 2017).
Once users log in, they are welcomed by the dashboard from where they can see quick overview of their SIMs. User can see amount of SIMs with data usage, top consuming SIMs and Account data usage for the selected period (Today, Yesterday, Last 7 days, This month, Previous month, Last 30 days). When clicking on the downward pointing arrows, a View of active countries appears:
Under the map, a user can also do a quick query by SIM, as seen on the last screenshot.
The SIMs tab provides a quick overview of all the SIMs associated with the account. The user can receive different information, for example on the usage and cost of the data and the time of the last activity. The top part of the page contains different filters that can be applied, making searching SIMs within certain time period easier. The table also provides a quick access to the tools necessary to control SIMs, such as enabling/disabling functionality, changing data limits and more.
Clicking on a specific SIM will take the user to a more detailed view, where they can get information about specific data sessions of the SIM.
This tab displays the subscribed pricing plans. Clicking on a plan reveals additional information like monthly fees, amount of data included in the plan and also a list of supported countries in a particular plan. The user can also expand a specific country to see which mobile operators are supported in that country.
Through this tab, user can bring in data from Cisco Jasper and manage everything via 1oT Terminal.
Analytics – A powerful, easy-to-use tool to help you analyze and visualize data: identify trends, optimise, detect patterns and search efficiently. The tool enables to import all relevant device & sensor data to the 1oT Terminal and supports 8 chart types to create your own personalised analytics dashboard.
From Billing report user can see the amount of SIMs for current month, how much date has been used and all invoices up to date. User can also change Default payment method and unsubscribe SIMs from there.
Definitely, one of the most useful tabs. As the name indicates, under this tab the user can set up notifications for different events or occurrences, e.g.: SIM is using too much data, SIM is not using enough data, SIM has exceeded x MB data usage, SIM comes online in a different country, etc.
Notifications can be set for all SIMs, groups or particular ones from the list.
Once a notification gets triggered, the system will send the user (or multiple users) an email or an HTTP request. Users can also check alert log comfortably from the Alerts tab:
Through this tab, more technical users can set up their API access. Users have to generate an API password and whitelist any IP they might access the API from. A dynamic API documentation is also available, where users can test the capabilities of the API right in their browser.
From account tab, a company owner or administrator can give multiple people access to 1oT terminal.
The newest feature of the 1oT Terminal is the self-service store. A user can order new SIMs from 1oT without any hassle by just selecting a plan and clicking “Order”.
Along with the ability to buy SIMs, there is also the ability to improve Terminal functionality by buying additional “Apps”. These apps include:
This concludes our brief overview of the 1oT Terminal. Within time it will become more functional while staying intuitive. In case of any questions, feel free to contact us at hello[at]1oT.mobi
