When it comes to on-the-go internet, mobile wireless routers — also known as hotspots — have been filling the gap between Wi-Fi and cellular since 2009. Instead of being tethered to a Wi-Fi connection or having to browse the internet on your smartphone, hotspots give laptop and tablet users the ability to connect to the internet whenever and wherever, as long as there is cellular coverage.

SIM Cards’ Social Impact: Changing the World with Accessible, Affordable Cellular IoT

Cellular web networks allow for Internet connectivity even outdoors or in remote locations, and for smaller companies or startups without the resources to invest in more expensive Wi-Fi architecture Subscriber Identity Modules – better known as SIM cards – can make all the difference. Similarly, communities with limited resources can leverage SIM cards to cheaply connect everyone at a data rate within their budget. If Wi-Fi changed the world by making high-speed, reliable connections commonplace in the home, SIM cards change the world by letting everyone connect on-the-go for less, with much greater flexibility in terms of service providers, usage rates, and more. With the advent of the Internet of Things, the SIM card has emerged as the key to connectivity.  But what are some specific examples of the SIM card’s impact on our world?

Fortune reports that American beers raked in an estimated $252.6 billion in 2014 alone, and the industry has continued growing in years since. With craft-brewing and micro-brewing taking the industry to new heights, more people than ever before are learning how to make beer. But the fermentation process is complex and difficult to control, with any number of variables influencing the taste and quality of your brew. Especially for home breweries and smaller establishments making fewer batches, loss of even a single batch due to quality control issues can set back production for weeks.

Fun fact. The Portobello mushroom, a popular meat substitute, was originally considered an inedible byproduct crop and thrown away. Then in the 1980s, American farmers launched a marketing campaign touting the fungus as a hamburger substitute. Today, the mushroom is one of the biggest selling fungi varieties in the world, with annual sales in the billions.

Getting started in the Internet of Things (IoT) can be a daunting task for any company, but it doesn’t have to be. We all have heard about the numbers of connected devices, today and in the future. We understand that the world is moving towards the connected everything. The issue for many is how do I start? What are the challenges? What tools are necessary for IoT solutions? While it’s tempting to take a ‘wait and see’ attitude, the reality is the market is simply moving too fast to sit on the sidelines.

Here, we cover some of the issues. More in-depth analysis can be found in our recent webinar (link here) or at our Neo site (link here).

IoT is a huge and growing field, yet it’s still in its infancy. That means you’re getting in on the bottom floor of one of the greatest marketplaces since the dawning of the internet. But as with any paradigm shift, there is a lot of confusion about what’s the best approach to successfully compete. Everyone seems to have an answer, but not every answer is right for your company, or even right at all.
 
For more than 20 years, Aeris has been a pioneer in IoT and its predecessors. That’s one of the reasons we developed the Neo marketplace. Just like the internet leveled the playing field for every-sized business, Neo enables smaller companies even two-person startups to immediately take advantage of IoT like the big corporations. Quickly, easily and cost effectively.
 
But what’s Neo all about? And how can you apply Neo to your unique business model? Bring your questions (and get answers!) at our upcoming interactive webinar.

Managing Your Neo SIM Card States

Change Neo SIM Card StateA SIM card (subscriber identity module) is used to identify and allow users access to a wireless network. It is the gatekeeper for wireless networks and ensures every user on the network is authorized.

Most people are familiar with the SIM cards found in cell phones, but Internet of Things technology requires a different kind of SIM card, such as a Neo SIM, for hardware to transmit data. Any device’s access to a network is dependent on the SIM card state: Assigned, Provisioned, Active-Billed, Suspended, or Cancelled. Automatic and manual triggers allow Neo users to switch between each of these states. Manual triggers occur by using AerPort or programming an application using Aeris AerAdmin API, while automatic triggers occur when certain criteria or usage limits are met.
