Aeris, with Neo, its new on-demand, online marketplace for M2M/IoT connectivity, wants totake the hassle out of the getting a machine-to-machine implementation up and running, much likeAmazon Web Services did for compute resources and services, according to M2M Evolution magazine.
Aeris Communications is trying to take some of the hassle and time commitment out of that process by allowing customers to order and pay for M2M connectivity and SIMs online, and get that connectivity up and running in a day or two, wrote Paula Bernier, executive editor of TMZ.
This is available through Neo, an Aeris microwebsite that enables users to see what services are available to them where; to follow a four-step process to select the number of SIMs they need and the type of connectivity they desire; and to use a credit card to pay for it all. With Neo, there is no volume commitment or minimum term, she added.
Bernier interviewed Aeris CMO Raj Kanaya, who said the Neo service makes getting M2M connectivity and SIM cards a faster and easier process, and it makes M2M more accessible to a larger interest group.
The simplicity, transparency, openness that Amazon brought to the computing market we are bringing to the M2M market, Kanaya told Bernier.
