4 Simple Steps for Deploying IoT: Managing the Connectivity Ecosystem

August 28, 2019

There are countless items on an IoT pre-launch list. Some are required, some would be nice to have, some might be a waste of time and money. In order to get off on the right footing, we look at four basic must-haves for any deployment:

  • The right technology choice;
  • Comprehensive cellular coverage;
  • In-depth and timely support; and
  • Easy and transparent device and connectivity management.

If you haven’t figured out these four items before launch date, then trouble already is brewing and money might be wasted.

Join Aeris and subject matter experts for this webinar as they define the requirements for a successful IoT launch.

Basic Needs

An IoT implementation requires a complex web of vendors and technologies to deliver and manage connectivity services as a key part of achieving a successful launch. For instance, connectivity providers, endpoint makers, gateway providers, vendors of IoT platform software, other software vendors, providers of data center capacity and management tools all need to come together to deliver an IoT service.

This webinar will cover some of the basic needs for an IoT deployment, specifically focusing on the needed technology, the required coverage, a comprehensive level of support, as well as connectivity management so you know where money is being spent. Understanding these basic requirements before deployment calms the fears of those stepping into this new technological paradigm.

The Ultimate Goal

Your business has decided to power growth through the Internet of Things. But investing and planning new, large-scale projects can be overwhelming. Most businesses have expectations, mostly monetary, but are unsure of the steps to take to initiate such a deployment. Choosing the right partner, with expertise and experience, can make or break initial projects.

Think of one platform to manage multiple technologies, with additional capabilities to identify problems faster, resolve issues quicker, and control costs at every stage of IoT device usage. You need a platform that provides complete control over your IoT / M2M programs through the entire device lifecycle―one that allows real-time visibility into device performance and traffic patterns, as well as a solution that enables cost controls through flexible alerts and alarms. These capabilities result in greater operational efficiencies, higher levels of automation, and ultimately, a much lower TCO.

Why Aeris?

Aeris has been successful in creating a unique IoT ecosystem for enterprises, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), technologists, system integrators, and solution providers in multiple vertical sectors. With our set of comprehensive IoT solutions and services, organizations can optimize IoT deployments and have real-time remote monitoring of machines, things, equipment, and assets.

At Aeris, we believe that the future will see the expansion of NB-IoT and LTE-M over the other proprietary LPWA technologies in the field. One of the reasons will be cost. Another will be coverage. Like LTE-M, network upgrades will enable NB-IoT growth through already existing towers, making it an IoT force to be reckoned with.

The issue for companies will be to decide whether to be locked into a low-cost, proprietary system or to go with an IoT service provider linked into multiple carriers, thus providing seamless reliable, low-cost connectivity coverage.
