AerConnect™ – IoT and M2M Cellular Connectivity Services
Unsurpassed IoT and M2M Cellular Connectivity, Anywhere in the World, for Every Application and Budget
AerConnect is the Aeris cellular connectivity network, consisting of 2G, 3G, and 4G / LTE connectivity for both CDMA and GSM networks. The AerCore network was built for 99.995% reliability, and customer tests prove that its reliability is unmatched in the M2M communications industry.
Unlike traditional operators, AerConnect enables you to connect not only to our network, but also to the strongest signal from any one of more than 50 operators in North America and 550 operators worldwide. In fact, Aeris is carrier-agnostic and customer devices will always have the strongest and most reliable connection available, regardless of location or operator.
The LTE network provides a compelling option for applications that require greater throughput, such as automotive infotainment or surveillance. Until recently, LTE modules were more expensive than CDMA and GSM radio modules, but prices have dropped considerably, and LTE-only radios are now available. In addition, LTE coverage is expanding around the world. If you’re looking for the speed and high data usage that LTE offers, Aeris can provide LTE solutions, along with fallback capabilities to CDMA or GSM to ensure broad coverage.
Aeris has support for both 2G and 3G/HSPA GSM technologies. Aeris’ GSM SIMs have been designed to meet a myriad of needs, including support for remote and rural locations and high data use applications.
Aeris’ GSM deployments provide the same guarantee for signal quality and reliability as with the CDMA option—devices will always get the strongest cellular signal available, regardless of operator. See coverage map.What is gsm connection?
GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications), is an international standard used to describe the standard collection of applications and feature protocols for digital cellular networks used by mobile phones. Because GSM is digital, GSM networks support simultaneous voice and data when using a UMTS connection. Through roaming agreements with foreign operators, users can usually continue using their mobile phones while traveling to other countries or on another service provider’s network.
With nearly 10 years of experience on CDMA technologies, Aeris has deep knowledge of the CDMA network and has successfully launched hundreds of M2M programs across 2G and 3G technologies. Leading automotive, fleet, utilities, and healthcare companies count on Aeris to ensure the most reliable service for their CDMA-based programs. Aeris’ commitment to both 2G and 3G CDMA technologies will continue for many years, so customers can be assured of uninterrupted and reliable service. See coverage map.
