IoT can be defined as an interconnected system in which devices are connected using network communication technologies. IoT device management is the backbone of an IoT architecture that enables communication between devices or things. IoT device management provides provisioning, monitoring, authentication, device configuration, software update, and patch management, all of which are indispensable requirements of IoT deployment. Thus, IoT device management aims at managing the exponentially growing IoT devices providing extraordinary customer experience, maximum uptime, and device security.
