The annual CTIA Super Mobility Week conference in Las Vegas never fails to attract cutting-edge technology from around the world. At the show last week, Aeris played its part in advancing innovation, hosting a competition that highlighted the latest advances in machine-to-machine (M2M) communications.
The Aeris Customers’ Choice Award gave partners the chance to show their cutting-edge products at Aeris’ booth at the conference. Conference goers were encouraged to vote for the product they thought would have the greatest potential to further the M2M market in the coming years.
Capturing top honors this year was GetWireless, the Minneapolis, Minn. distributor of a select portfolio of cellular-based gateways, routers, modems and terminals from industry-leading manufacturers like Sierra Wireless (AirLink), Option NV, and Xirgo Technologies. They specialize in products that offer voice and data connectivity by leveraging the cellular networks.
GetWireless was recognized by Aeris for its work with Bi Pom Electronics, and its product, CloudGate nanoWiPOM cellular gateway.
The nano-WiPOM solution is an efficient, economical replacement for PC’s and PLC’s at remote sites in which monitoring, data logging, and SCADA occur. It is a highly-configurable wireless platform with plug and play peripherals, I/O connectivity, and an on-board processor. It is also ideal for solar/battery powered applications and can be leveraged as an expansion card for the Option CloudGate gateway or an external add-on board for Sierra Wireless AirLink gateways.
“We are honored to have won the Customers’ Choice Award from our partners at Aeris for our work with the nano-WIPOM,” said Tom Hoyt, Director of Business Development of GetWireless. “At GetWireless, we have been providing our resale partners with the best in hardware and M2M solutions, and this award helps to further validate our efforts. We look forward to our continued work with Aeris.”
GetWireless is the kind of partner that can assure successful cellular deployments.
“At Aeris, we work with a wide range of partners, whether in healthcare, automotive or utilities, and believe strongly in the work of collaboration in delivering M2M solutions that allow customers to optimize their business,” said Annette Evans, director of channel management of Aeris. “Through the company’s work in developing technology that paves the way for partners to expand their reach and the continued efforts to advance the M2M and IoT markets, we are confident that nano-WIPOM will do well as these industries see sustained growth in the coming years.”
Other top partners participating in the awards included Multi-Tech, Symmetry Electronics, RichardsonRFPD, NimbeLink. They will all be featured in upcoming Aeris blogs.
