With DNA IoT Connect subscriptions, you also get access to the DNA Control Center – a management portal that enables you to view all of your IoT subscriptions and their associated services. Via this user interface, you can for instance manage your subscriptions, supervise their use, and order new subscriptions.

DNA Control Center consists of the following components:


You can monitor your subscriptions’ status and data usage in real time and manage costs by selecting the most suitable data packages.


The management portal enables you to monitor subscription invoicing in almost real time. You can also print invoicing reports.


Thanks to its extensive automation features, DNA Control Center can manage costs on your behalf and notify designated people or organisations in the event of any faults. Automation is set up using easy rules.


DNA Control Center provides analytics services that will help you to identify any problems with the functionality of your subscriptions, to better understand device behaviour and repeating trends.


With DNA Control Center, you can define the devices or IP addresses that are permitted to use the subscriptions, or enable two-way authentication.


DNA Control Center will also help you to solve a large number of issues yourself. A straightforward diagnostics tool will check the most common reasons for a fault and suggest suitable solutions. Using this tool does not require any in-depth technical knowledge.


Via DNA Control Center you can order new subscriptions.

User manuals

User manuals and API documentation are conveniently available within the management portal. You can also obtain quick answers to frequently asked questions.
