Newly Activated Devices
Effectively Manage Device Deployment

Customers rolling out new device deployments often must verify the ROI of their new deployment. Tracking when devices are set up at a site and when they enter active operations, leveraging the VisibilityIQ utilization algorithm, allows managers to track against SLA and ROI metrics. Service providers and customers also can manage and optimize the workflow of devices returning from repair and entering back into use.
