Aeris LTE-M Extends Capabilities
The Aeris Intelligent IoT Network is a dynamic, software-driven network that continuously evolves with new capabilities, such as new connectivity options of LTE-M, as well as the extended functionality of Aeris ConnectionLock and Connectivity-Aware OTA. Customers can simply tap into intelligence with minimal changes or standardized interfaces (i.e., REST APIs).
LTE-M leverages lower-cost modules, enables extended battery life, provides better signal penetration, and has the ability to use existing infrastructure. This creates the best possible IoT connectivity solution for security, scaling, and cost.
LTE-M (also known as CAT-M) is a bi-directional, standards-based low power wide area technology that supports IoT through lower device complexity while providing extended coverage with prolonged battery life.
LTE-M does not need a new infrastructure as it can piggyback on existing LTE networks. That means a carrier can update software on its network, get LTE-M functional, and not spend any additional funds on infrastructure or support services.READ THE BRIEF
