Obstacles Facing M2M Deployment, Part 2: Costs

October 21, 2014

Neo_LogoOne of the biggest barriers hampering the explosive potential of the next generation of machine-to-machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) solutions has been the opaque pricing models presented to potential customers by MVNOs and carriers.

In the past, those wishing to access M2M / IoT connectivity often faced a maze of volume requirements, hidden fees, termination fees or cancellation charges.

Neo, powered by Aeris, an online, self-service marketplace to purchase cellular M2M connectivity, is changing all that by radically simplifying the development process, speeding time-to-market, and dramatically lowering costs by 50 percent or more.

With its open and transparent information exchange, there is no need to wonder about pricing details, terms of service, or any technical detail to receive the award-winning Aeris connectivity service at $1/device/month.

The Neo online platform enables prospective customers to purchase a connectivity solution in minutes, and have a fully functional solution within a day.

“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.”

The Neo service is available now at
