Last week, more than 150,000 people flocked to Las Vegas to attend the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), the worlds largest technology event, where cutting-edge technologies that will set trends for years to come were put on display.
Aeris Communicationswas there in force as our representatives met with scores of customers and partners throughout the show to extend our partner relations and our machine-to-machine (M2M) communications services.
This year, the themes of Internet of Things (IoT) and connected cars made headlines.
Ciscos CEO John Chambers said in his keynote address that Cisco is focusing on IoT, which he believes will be a $19 trillion market. If you were to take away only one number from today, think $19 trillion, Chambers told the audience. This is where I get the attention of CEOs, governments and business leaders.
Aeris is also focused on IoT and has a strong record of offering innovative machine-to-machine communications services to its partners and customers. Aeris is a pioneer and leader in the market of the Internet of Things as an operator of end-to-end M2M services and as a technology provider enabling other operators to deliver profitable M2M services. At CES, we spoke with scores of businesses interested in our services.
Also at CES, several car companies displayed the latest advances in connected technology. Aeris is partnering with businesses, operators and car manufacturers to deliver connected, M2M services.
Among our customers are the most demanding users of M2M services today, including Honda, Hyundai, Acura, Rand McNally, Leica, and Sprint.
Through our Made for Machines technology and services, we strive to fundamentally improve their businesses by dramatically reducing costs, improving operational efficiency, reducing time-to-market, and enabling new revenue streams.
Leaving CES, we were delighted at the enthusiasm M2M and IoT is generating among businesses and about our role in fulfilling the needs of these companies.
