Aeris LTE-M at-a-Glance

LTE-M is a bi-directional, standards-based protocol within the same spectrum as LTE. This low-power, wide-area (LPWA) technology features enhanced indoor and subterranean coverage; is designed for low-bandwidth uses thereby extending battery life; reduces data transport costs (via non-continuous transmittal schedules); and comes with the added benefit of making use of less expensive radio modules.

The More You Know, the Easier the Transition

  • A New Technology That's Ready Now
LTE-M was born from LTE, a globally deployed wireless protocol. LTE-M can piggyback on already existing LTE infrastructure, thereby ensuring a wide coverage footprint. READ MORE
  • Get to Market Quickly
Deploy quickly. Get to market faster. Update device software as needed with built-in Aeris Connectivity-Aware OTA APIs. OTA updates can be deployed to thousands of IoT devices at once rather than requiring each device in the field to be manually modified. READ MORE
  • Device and Data Security
Enhanced security features reduce loss and provide valuable analytics data about misuse. Aeris offers ConnectionLock, which restricts device communications to select destinations, providing a key additional layer of defense. READ MORE
  • Total Control
The Aeris AerPort™ dashboard provides a single portal for managing global deployments―with end-to-end device lifecycle management, billing optimisation, connectivity analytics, and access to customer support. READ MORE

Ready to Get Started with Aeris LTE-M?

Battery Life Gets Better, Lasts Longer

Earlier versions of connectivity technologies employed an “always on” methodology. This created a situation where the IoT device constantly was listening for messages, for new information. This “always on” condition meant that batteries were engaged all the time, radically lowering their life span.

With LTE-M, devices can enter a “sleep” or power saving mode), and wake up only periodically while connected.

The extended discontinuous reception (eDRX) enables devices to reduce power consumption by extending the period of time they remain “asleep” (avoiding 24 /7 power consumption), allowing batteries to last much longer. Up to 10 years, depending on the device.

Access to optimal coverage (multiple networks, no steering) further minimizes battery drain.

Entering the Age of Lower-Cost IoT

Low cost modules can provide up to a 50% reduction in costs over comparable IoT devices. Today, an LTE module, purchased in bulk, could run between $20-30 per unit. On the other side of the equation, an LPWA module, purchased in bulk, could lower the cost to about $10 per unit.

For large deployments, with thousand on units deployed, this is significant. And as the technology matures even more, the price for IoT modules should fall even further, to between $5 and $10 per unit.

Keeping You in Control

The Aeris Fusion IoT Network provides complete visibility and control over the entire device lifecycle. Advanced traffic management capabilities provide customers with the ability to analyse performance and cost drivers and, when combined with alerts management, allows for a wide range of pre-defined or option-driven system alerts and reports, thereby ensuring optimum performance.
