HPE Rolls Out Products to Enable IoT Adoption

Hewlett Packard Enterprise has announced several software and hardware products to more securely manage the exploding universe of Internet of Things devices. October's Mirai botnet attack on unsecured IoT devices, which halted widespread access to dozens of popular internet sites, dramatizes the value of more comprehensive management and control of IoT, HPE executives said.

Some of HPE's new products are intended for use by virtual cellular network providers, while others are for small and medium-sized enterprises to use in managing their local area network (LAN) operations, the company says.

The new HPE Mobile Virtual Network Enabler software will help virtual network operators, which resell IoT connectivity, with their network provisioning, configuration, administration and billing services.

These virtual network operators could work with automakers and manufacturing plants, for example, that need cellular connectivity to communicate with IoT sensors inside vehicles or connected to robots inside plants.

Pricing for the Mobile Virtual Network Enabler (MVNE) was not announced. However, HPE's IoT general manager Nigel Upton said it will help so-called "overlay" network providers of IoT to build out networks at far lower prices.
