MOBILE WORLD CONGRESS, Barcelona, March 1st 2024 XL Axiata, a leading converged operator in Indonesia with over 57,5 million subscribers, has partnered with Cisco, the worldwide leader in technology, to introduce a cloud-delivered IoT Connectivity Management Platform through IoT Connectivity+ Product by XL Axiata to help customers in Indonesia innovate and scale their IoT businesses securely.


IoT connections in Indonesia are forecast to grow threefold to approximately 404 million by 2028, with cellular connections constituting a quarter of this figure. The growth is projected to be a sustain in the years ahead with cellular connections projected to grow to 148 million by 2032. However, large scale IoT deployments are often seen as complex to manage not least because of the range of devices and their varying technological sophistication, especially in areas like cybersecurity.


IoT Connectivity+ product by XL Axiata, powered by Cisco’s IoT Control Center addresses this complexity by providing customers with a unified architecture that is designed to manage a large scale of diverse endpoints and platforms. The platform has an artificial intelligence powered anomaly detection capability that proactively finds and alerts the business about any device or connectivity issues in the background, helping improve service reliability.


At the same time, enterprise-grade, end-to-end security in the platform helps businesses protect their users, devices, and critical infrastructure, enabling businesses to stay ahead of unusual data or connectivity patterns with real-time device monitoring and analytics. Additionally, customers can also better manage and control costs as the XL Axiata IoT Connectivity+ platform automatically picks the right rate plan based on real-time usage.


Finally, the combination of all these abilities allows customers to accelerate innovative IoT use-cases tailored for their business needs and manage it all on a single platform for seamless digital experience.


“As connectivity continues to improve across Indonesia, businesses are now looking to scale the IoT deployments and bring to life various use cases. However, they realise that to be successful in this area in the long run, they need to ensure they can address the complexity associated with IoT deployment and keep them secure from malicious actors. As such, they need a simple, scalable, and secure platform that can help them achieve those goals and XL Axiata IoT Connectivity+ provides exactly that. We are excited to join forces with Cisco to offer innovative solutions that not only elevate businesses but also help realize Indonesia's smart cities vision sustainably,” said Yessie D.
