According to the latest annual update of the Cisco Visual Networking Index Global Mobile Data Traffic Forecast for 2014 to 2019, global mobile data traffic will grow nearly 10x over the next five years, aided by the ongoing adoption of more powerful mobile devices and machine-to-machine (M2M) connections, combined with broader access to faster cellular networks. Additionally, global Wi-Fi offload traffic will exceed global cellular traffic by 2019, which further confirms the importance and dominance of mobility and wireless networking.
To help partners capitalize on the “mobile first” explosion, Cisco recently introduced Mobility IQ, a SaaS analytics prepaid subscription service. Hosted on Cisco Cloud Services and available through Ingram Micro, it provides IT solution providers (ITSPs) with a real-time view of network activity across customers’ Wi-Fi, 3G, and LTE networks.
Traditionally, solution providers had only limited visibility into indoor and business networks, where their customers most frequently consume mobile services. Cisco Mobility IQ provides intelligence that enhances operational efficiency and business value in three key ways:
- Cisco Network Intelligence – By providing a single, dynamic picture of the health of the entire network, Mobility IQ helps optimize performance and identifies problem areas so they can be addressed.
- Cisco User Intelligence – By providing more holistic insights into indoor and outdoor mobile user behaviors, such as location and social media activity, Mobility IQ enables delivery of the appropriate services and experience at precisely the right moments.
- Cisco Business Intelligence – By providing business customers – such as venues, retailers and transport hubs – real-time, actionable information about customer and end-user trends, Mobility IQ enables businesses to make informed commercial decisions and glean greater value from their respective service-provider offerings.
Mobility IQ takes full advantage of Cisco Cloud Services' global footprint to provide the reach and scale you need to expand your business. Through Ingram Micro Fly Higher, Cisco partners can procure, sell and support Mobility IQ along with a host of complementary Cisco solutions and services.
