Aeris announced last week that its Neo service now offers 4G long-term evolution (LTE) high-speed wireless data communications for enterprises deploying IoT solutions. 4G LTE provides super-fast connectivity to millions of users and is the fastest developing system in the history of mobile communications.
Launched in 2014, Neo by Aeris enables enterprises to develop, launch and manage IoT and machine-to-machine (M2M) solutions that require cellular connectivity, while reducing the time, cost and hassle of obtaining and operating connectivity through traditional channels.
Aeris’ Neo service has been tailored specifically to work with the IoT, helping reduce costs and improve the operational efficiency when deploying and managing devices.With the expanded 4G LTE Neo services, enterprises have immediate access to a nationwide 4G LTE cellular coverage footprint providing data and short message service (SMS) connectivity.
With Neo’s self-serve connectivity management platform, enterprises can activate subscriber identity modules (SIMs), monitor activity, track usage and manage alerts.Neo offers enterprises numerous benefits including simplified development process, faster time-to-market, no contract obligations and shared knowledge from IoT experts via the Neo community support forum.
Aeris understands the challenges enterprises face in all aspects of deploying a profitable IoT business – from building an IoT application, ensuring connectivity and managing and optimizing the deployment.
Earlier this month, SoftBank and Aeris established a joint venture in Japan, known as Aeris Japan K.K., to provide IoT and telematics services globally using the Aeris IoT solutions platform.
