T-Mobile Control Center accelerates business growth by harnessing the power of Internet of Things (IoT) through custom platforms and flexible solutions—such as agile activation services, dynamic cost controls, SIM ordering and lifecycle management tools, and the ability to monitor devices and device usage in realtime. Businesses that witnessed 3G and 4G networks transform mobile phones from telecommunication devices into handheld computers must embrace the profound changes being driven by the integration of low-latency, high-capacity of 5G with IoT and other advanced technologies.
T-Mobile Control Center supports 4G LTE, LTE-M, Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT), and 5G Enterprise IoT. These capabilities create significant real-world impact, most notably in managing smart cities, providing robust home security systems, and optimizing fleet management and asset tracking—key business initiatives fully supported by T-Mobile Control Center.
T-Mobile Control Center is one of today’s most innovative and dynamic IoT management platforms, delivering the scale, flexibility, and speed to market that enables enterprises and their customers to compete in today’s rapidly growing marketplace. It utilizes 3GPP 4G LTE, 5G, and IoT-optimized LTE technology to provide a long-range, efficient power consumption solution over the licensed cellular spectrum. The IoT for Business solution provides flexible cellular connectivity options, including 4G LTE, LTE-M, LTE NB-IoT, 5G as a radio access network, and open Internet or IPSEC/MPLS-based VPN for connectivity to the enterprise customer’s premises.
The Control Center portal and APIs allow customers to deploy, manage, and monetize their IoT solutions. They can also view per-device charges, device analytics, device-level triggers and automation, and per-device network connectivity status. The Account Hub portal enables customers to manage their accounts and order Subscriber Identity Modules (SIMs). Customers may also utilize public or private internet Access Point Names (APN), and T-Mobile-provided dynamic/static IP addresses or enterprise-managed IP address assignments.
Network capability options
T-Mobile Control Center customers can choose to use the public (open Internet) APN to get basic internet access. Dynamic and static IP support options are available for open internet APN customers. This is the default option that is associated with all SIM subscriptions.
Our Private APN (PAPN) provides customers with a private connection to their internal network, which they can fully control and customize to their preferences. PAPN customers gain access only to specific applications or data that their network team allows. T-Mobile assigns a dedicated APN name with a particular IP address range for each customer. The private APN does not have direct internet access and routes traffic to the customer’s premises network gateway. This option is ideal for users with sensitive information and who want to protect their devices from unfettered access, especially in cases like electric vehicle charging stations or connected cars.
