New Feature: Configurable Single Payment Rate Simplifies Connectivity Management while Reducing Costs

Today, we are introducing a new Single Payment Rate Plan for the Aeris Intelligent IoT Network. The plan allows customers to define a data allowance to be used over a specified period of time and take care of their connectivity costs in a single, convenient upfront payment. 

The plan offers significant benefits for two different types of customers: 

  1. Customers operating within business models that cannot easily accommodate a recurring monthly cost for cellular connectivity (e.g. manufacturers and companies who sell connected products through distributors). 
  2. Customers addressing use cases that require very limited amounts of data (1-5MB/month). 

For these customers, the overhead required to manage a monthly recurring charge for connectivity can create unnecessary operational burden. The Single Payment Rate Plan addresses this challenge with discounted data covered in a single upfront payment. 

Aeris is the only IoT connectivity provider that offers a white glove experience to customers of all sizes. We are committed to leveraging our purpose-built core network (which controls all device/network interactions) and the flexibility that it provides to adapt our offer to meet each customer’s specific needs. 

Unlike most prepaid rate plans on the market, which are completely fixed, sold online, and differentiated only based on price, the Aeris Single Payment Rate Plan allows the customer to configure the rate plan to meet their usage requirements and business model. Customers can select any amount of data (up to 180 MB/year) to be used over any time period from 1-10 years. 

In addition, customers leveraging the Single Payment Rate Plan will receive a discount on their data costs, as well as access to all the capabilities of the Aeris Intelligent IoT Network — the only cellular IoT network offering visibility and control over your entire connected operation, globally and at scale. Aeris Intelligent IoT Network provides performance-optimized 2G, 3G, LTE, LTE-M (and soon 5G) coverage from 600 carriers across 190 countries and enables customers to predict, preempt, detect, diagnose, and resolve issues anywhere in their end-to-end system — from device, to network, to application.
