Key Benefits of AerCloud
|Reduce time-to-market for M2M solution||AerCloud reduces your cost and time to develop M2M applications. In most M2M implementations, the reduction in development time is 60% or more.|
|Enable you to focus on core competencies when developing M2M application||AerCloud’s abstraction layer provides M2M data management for applications and eliminates programming effort to integrate M2M devices into the applications. Now you can focus on value rather than only the base infrastructure of your M2M solutions.|
|Deliver critical business insights||AerCloud mines your M2M data both offline (Big Data) and in real-time (Fast Data) to extract operable, decision-making information and deliver true value for your business.|
|Highly scalable||The AerCloud architecture enables unparalleled scalability, and supports billions of devices and millions of internet-scale endpoints and subscribing applications. In leveraging AerCloud’s load balancing and auto-scaling capabilities, customers have nearly unlimited data capacity for their solutions.|
|High availability||AerCloud’s unique data-centric, cloud-based architecture ensures high availability of your M2M data. AerCloud instances are replicated across multiple zones and geographies/regions to protect against any network interruption, and equipment failure, and even a major disaster.|
|Security||The AerCloud agent provides a reliable and secure connection between the connected devices and AerCloud.|
|Reveal new business models and opportunities||AerCloud’s Data Sharing Interface enables you to share your M2M data with third parties. You can thus create new revenue models and develop whole new business opportunities, and significantly increase the value of your M2M data.|
|Support richer and more functional applications with Aeris connectivity||AerCloud can be used with any communication connectivity, but when paired with Aeris M2M connectivity service, AerCloud has access to all network signaling data, enabling even richer and more functional applications.|
M2M Data Management
AerCloud provides a critical abstraction layer between your connected devices and applications. When integrating AerCloud into your developments, your M2M solutions can rely on the most scalable and reliable AEP in the industry to manage your M2M data.
Delivered as a cloud service, AerCloud enables unparalleled scalability and supports billions of devices and millions of subscribing applications Thanks to AerCloud’s advanced load balancing and auto-scaling capabilities, your solutions will automatically have nearly unlimited data capacity. Designed with the same mission-critical reliability that powers all Aeris products, AerCloud offers advanced failover capabilities, including geographic redundancy, to ensure seamless service in case of any unexpected event.
We have architected AerCloud as an open system: you can connect any device streaming data over an IP network to AerCloud via any communication technology and multiple protocols like http, https and MQTT. Also, AerCloud’s standardized REST APIs allows your devices to easily and without complex integration, stream data into any M2M applications. AerCloud ensures the straightforward delivery of M2M data by the two flexible mechanisms featured by AerCloud:
- Long-polling – data is stored locally in AerCloud until the application requests it; and
- Notification – data is pushed to the application, as soon as it is available.
AerCloud features the most advanced batch and real-time data analytics service in the M2M industry, significantly expanding the scope and capabilities of traditional Application Enablement Platforms. Using AerCloud, M2M applications have access to high-value business data that facilitates decision-making in the enterprise. It becomes possible with AerCloud to identify a truck exhibiting dangerous road behavior in a fleet management system, detect a water leak from a water meter, or predict potential risks for the user of a wellness solution. And when paired with Aeris M2M connectivity service, AerCloud has access to all network signaling data, enabling even richer and more functional applications.
AerCloud enables you to multiply the value of your M2M data. Now that you can gather and manipulate the data so easily, you have the opportunity to identify and create new revenue models and generate new business opportunities. Thanks to its unique Data Sharing Interface, AerCloud also allows you to share M2M data with your partners and your customers. With AerCloud, the use of M2M data is no longer limited to your specific solutions; you can easily, flexibly and securely grant access to your data to other parties and then enable them to enrich and optimize their own applications with your data.
Vertical Extensions Framework
AerCloud facilitates and speeds up the development of M2M applications by offering a powerful framework, which enables the creation of services leveraging AerCloud’s baseline architecture. These services feature some of the most common and relevant building blocks across M2M applications and verticals. For example, vertical extensions such as Geo-grid or nearby-asset search can be easily integrated into your M2M applications at implementation time, thus leading to a reduction in your overall project development time.
