We've created an infographic we think may best describe the time, effort, and cost saved by using Neo to access M2M cellular connectivity compared to a carrier. Neo, Aeris Communications’ open and transparent online marketplace for IoT and M2M connectivity, unleashes the massive potential of the Internet of Things by radically simplifying the development process, speeding time-to-market, and dramatically lowering costs by 50 percent or more.
In the past, the only option for VARs purchasing M2M/IoT cellular connectivity for devices or projects has been to rely on carrier agency plans or go through the expensive process of building an MVNO. The Neo marketplace changes all of that. NEO offers VARs, Systems Integrators and Distributors an opportunity to sell and manage wireless services through an Aeris branded, jointly branded or private branded self-service online portal that can be deployed with a simple link to theirsite.
On Wednesday, December 10 at 10:00 AM PT, Aeris will present a webinar for channel partners to learn how Neo can enable them to quickly deploy M2M/IoT wireless connectivity services through the self-service online portal.
Aeris, with Neo, its new on-demand, online marketplace for M2M/IoT connectivity, wants to take the hassle out of the getting a machine-to-machine implementation up and running, much like Amazon Web Services did for compute resources and services, according to M2M Evolution magazine.
With the launch of Neo Tuesday, Aeris is following the on-demand, web-services delivery model of IT resources and apps in a pay-as-you go, Amazon Web Services model, RCR Wireless News says.
Neo is providing these services in the context of celluar connectivity for the Internt of Things (IoT), wrote Claudia Bacco.
“When looking to launch an IoT solution today the search for connectivity can be complicated and costly,” Bacco wrote. “Neo is targeting any connectivity customer – whether a developer just getting started or a solution provider with thousands of IoT devices already deployed – who are looking for a single stop to meet their requirements. Aeris claims a reduction in costs of 50% or more and a much faster time to market.”

Light Reading, the respected networking and telecom sector publication, covered Aeris Communications’ launch of Neo Tuesday, commending the new self-service, online marketplace for IoT and M2M connectivity for its innovative approach toward making the process of introducing IoT applications less complex and less expensive.
“At this stage in the development of the IoT sector when the precise role of mobile network operators is still a bit unclear -- at least in terms of going beyond providing network connectivity to play a role in application enablement and service operation -- Aeris appears to be ahead of the game,” wrote Jason Meyers, senior editor.
The roll out of the next generation of the Internet of Things (IoT) has been slowed by the time-wasting complexity of developing a reliable connection that actually connected Things to the Internet.
A business looking to build a machine-to-machine (M2M) / IoT solution had to undergo a costly, months-long process that included development, contract negotiations, technical evaluation, and certification.
This is all changing.
Just as Amazon Web Services revolutionized the way computing resources were accessed, purchased and delivered with its transparent, on-demand, online model, Neo from Aeris is altering the way M2M/IoT connectivity is accessed with an open, online marketplace.
