Introduction

What is Bosch IoT Suite for Asset Communication?

In today’s digital world, many IoT applications focus on processing the data generated by connected devices. This telemetry data is used for a wide range of IoT use cases, such as remote monitoring, presence detection, and sensor tracking. In addition to this device-to-cloud communication, more and more IoT use cases also require changing the configuration of devices and triggering actions on devices (command & control).

Bosch IoT Suite for Asset Communication is a service package dedicated to support the scalable and secure ingestion of large volumes of sensor and asset data, and supports the remote control of your assets.

This package comprises

Thanks to its pre-configured character, the service package provides one endpoint for device provisioning.
