First step in long-term partnership, development of new technologies and integrated solutions, and collaboration in go-to-market activities
SAN JOSE, CA – Oct 22, 2019 – Aeris, a technology leader in the Internet of Things (IoT), today announced that it has chosen Google Cloud Platform (GCP) as the infrastructure provider for the Fusion IoT Network, one of the first-ever intelligent global solutions for connecting IoT devices across 2G, 3G, LTE, LTE-M, and NB-IoT. The multi-year partnership between Aeris and GCP will focus on advancing cutting-edge IoT cellular connectivity, delivering significant steps forward in security, operational efficiency, and customer choice and flexibility.

The recently announced Fusion IoT Network turns the traditional IoT cellular connectivity model upside down – breaking application and connectivity silos, enabling an unparalleled level of feature innovation, and delivering game-changing advantages to enterprise customers. To deliver these benefits, the Fusion IoT Network leverages a multi-technology, cloud-native network infrastructure – a complete suite of cellular network elements purpose-built for IoT, including an HLR/HSS, PCRF, SMSC, AAA, PGW, and OSS/BSS subsystems. Based on over a decade of development and more than 50 patents, these network elements are hardened with real-world experience, processing more than 1 billion transactions per day with telco-grade reliability.
Aeris chose GCP as the cloud infrastructure and platform for the Fusion IoT Network based on critical advantages in managed Kubernetes, global IP network superiority, reliability, cost efficiency, and ML/AI innovation over other cloud providers. For example, GCP’s Virtual Private Cloud IP network provides a distinct advantage to Aeris through its global performance and flexibility. Likewise, the Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) has been instrumental in making Aeris’ transition to Kubernetes easier, faster, and more cost-efficient.
The migration of the Fusion IoT Network to GCP is the first step in a multi-year collaboration in technology, enabling simpler, faster, and more reliable IoT deployments, and in joint go-to-market to bring these advantages to a large segment of joint IoT customers.
