While a DCP simplifies management of connected devices, an SDP provides service delivery architecture. The platforms support IoT ecosystem, which is an essential part of everyday existence. Since any compromise to IoT devices can lead to disastrous consequences, their security and safety becomes paramount. 


A device connection platform (DCP) is a software that treats all the connected devices as a single unit and simplifies the management of connected devices and software. It has many features and functionalities; the primary ones being managing data transmitted by devices, providing backend system that processes the data, provisioning of software updates to devices and general device lifecycle administration. Besides, the DCP provides analytics with details of all the devices and application usage.

The platform supports the Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem. An IoT ecosystem is where developers create applications for software solutions and hardware providers to boost innovation in the field. The IoT platform makes possible the delivery and distribution of not only the software/hardware solutions but also generates revenue for the company.

A service delivery platform (SDP) is a set of components that provides service delivery architecture such as service creation, session control and protocols for a type of service delivered, whether to a customer or to the other systems. SDP, which is a common term in telecommunication parlance, is applicable to both, the consumers as well as business applications. .

SDP remains essential for services that have to bridge multiple platforms or technologies. However, it can also be designed for a particular delivery in a single format. SDP includes different types of service creation and delivery, as in Information Technology sector.

SDP can also be used for management and sale of services between various companies and organisations which supply different services for a common platform. The common elements of a service delivery platform include service creation tools, service orchestration resources and execution strategy resources.

Connected devices are everywhere and our daily life depends heavily on these. From factories, city streets to remote villages, IoT devices are part of our everyday existence. If an IoT device gets compromised, it can prove catastrophic for the entire network. That is why we need a safe and secure platform and network to prevent these IoT devices from hacking. A safe and secure global connectivity management is a must to enable individuals and organisations to achieve unlimited connectivity.
