Historically, machine-to-machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) developers have faced a complex and fragmented industry with dated business models. This is especially true when finding a cellular carrier where the norm is a lengthy sales cycle, a complex on-boarding process, and an opaque pricing model. Not surprisingly, the traditional way of doing business has not served customers well, as they are often faced with lengthy time to market and unexpected costs. This business model is at odds with the evolution of the technology industry as a whole, where service delivery, as exemplified by market leaders Amazon and Zappos, is based on openness, transparency, and simplicity.
Aeris, the Made for Machines technology and service provider, is removing one of the biggest barriers hampering the explosive potential of the next generation of Internet of Things (IoT) solutions with the launch of Neo. An open and transparent online marketplace for IoT and M2M connectivity, Neo opens up the potential of the Internet of Things by simplifying the development process, speeding time-to-market, and dramatically lowering costs by 50 percent or more.
