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.
Launched today, Neo’s self-service platform allows customers to purchase a connectivity solution in minutes and a fully functional solution within one day with costs cut by 50 percent or more. Gone are volume requirements and hidden fees. Aeris can offer a connectivity solution at $1/device/month. You pay as you go.
Neo is designed for any connectivity customer looking for a fresh approach – whether an IoT developer with a new business idea or a solutions provider with active programs and thousands of units deployed.
“With Neo, our goal is simple: Break the traditional business model and unleash the next generation of IoT solutions,” said Aeris CEO Marc Jones. “The values that underpin leading Internet companies today are conspicuously missing in the IoT industry. With Neo, we will change that.”
