Businesses are becoming increasingly reliant on machines to deliver accurate, secure information. No matter your industry, deploying a machine-to-machine (M2M) or Internet of Things (IoT) application is a complex endeavor. So you need an M2M solution that delivers information in a consistent and reliable way.Read More»
With the proliferation of the Internet of Things (IoT), organizations are looking for technologies to better communicate with machines. Cellular technologies are a primary choice for this purpose, but the networks that organizations choose often makes all the difference in quality of service, features and especially pricing.Read More»
Maintaining relationships with multiple carriers as part of a global machine-to-machine (M2M) cellular communications strategy is a costly endeavor. Trying to keep track of so many different devices, platforms and plans often leads to costly overages. And the more relationships you have, the more inefficient and expensive it usually is.Read More»
M2M uses cellular technology for machine communications only, and the traditional carriers that provide the cellular service began as providers for consumer networks. Since their services,...Read More»
Machine-to-machine (M2M) solutions are becoming increasingly prevalent and communicating information about everything from the cars we drive to the food we eat. While the technologies are becoming more visible in our everyday lives, the costs involved in delivering M2M remain something of a mystery.
By paying attention to seemingly insignificant...Read More»
You might believe that all machine-to-machine (M2M) service providers are the same. You might think that you will select a cellular vendor based on the lowest connectivity rates. If you do, you might be heading for trouble.
The Aeris Communications white paper, “The Ultimate Guide for Selecting a M2M Service Provider,” shows that not all M2M...Read More»

Providing your customers with the most reliable machine-to-machine (M2M) connectivity at the lowest cost is not as simple as it should be. The job becomes even more difficult when your connected devices must regularly cross borders. Connected World magazine is showcasing an Aeris Communications white paper, “The Truth About Roaming,” that outlines...Read More»
Transparent billing is an essential quality in a machine-to-machine (M2M) service provider. Since M2M uses significantly less data than consumer devices — sometimes less than 100 kilobytes (KBs) per month — it would seem to be an exceptionally inexpensive service. But the per-megabyte (MB) data costs with M2M are considerably higher than consumer...Read More»
So you’ve decided to launch the first machine-to-machine (M2M) solution for your company. You put together a plan, do all the appropriate testing, carefully choose a provider and then deploy. Your solution is up and running and already you’re seeing operational efficiencies that inspire you to look at ways of expanding.
Then your bill for your...Read More»
