Weather touches almost all aspects of farming life, affecting multiple disciplines such as agriculture, hydrological forecasting, and emergency alert systems. To address the growing need for up-to-date weather information, the Trans-African Hydro-Meteorological Observatory (TAHMO) initiative seeks to install and operate up to 20,000 weather stations in sub-Saharan Africa.
Aeris' solutions for cellular IoT device identity, data access security, and remote update management address today's security risks and help IoT device manufacturers and solution providers comply with existing and near-term regulations in ways that are easy to implement.
Managing connectivity through distribution channels can be very difficult. The challenges are multi-fold and can include large deployments with complex supply chains, lack of visibility and control at the distributor level, and limited ability to influence end users.
The Aeris Intelligent IoT Network is built specifically for IoT, and includes additional functionality for connectivity status insights, heightened security protocols, and an ability to update devices over the air, regardless of how many or where situated.
Keeping your data secure can be business critical. Key to all this is the ability to restrict device communications only to select web destinations of your choosing.
Aeris has been working in Africa, with VillageReach and the DPS, for nearly two years to put in place a vehicle tracking system that enables independent monitoring and verification of 3PL deliveries.
Efficient OTA update processes increase the longevity of the IoT devices by enabling device makers to fix the bugs or introduce new functionality throughout its lifespan.
Cost has always been a concern for IoT applications at scale. LTE-M and NB-IoT are newer technologies that address this concern with lower transmission rates and longer battery life, thereby resulting in lower overall costs of IoT deployments.
