Connect Any Device Securely, Economically, at Scale

Connect More Things

Finding a secure, simple, and economical way to connect things to the internet is a tough challenge, and that’s what the patented Afero technology does like no other. Whether large or tiny, and fixed or mobile, the Afero platform makes it possible to connect things to the internet securely, at speed, and at scale.

From voice control to advanced tools and analytics to cloud platforms, there are a lot of IoT offerings out there. But you still have to do a lot to make it all happen. Afero has encapsulated that work into a turnkey platform.

The Afero IoT Platform™ accelerates time to market, eases ongoing operations, and simplifies how your business apps interact with and control far-edge and near-edge devices. With Afero, connected things can participate in business processes securely, easily, and at scale.

Get to market fast with a solution that your board loves to brag about, your team loves to build, and your customers love to use.

This, is the way to do IoT!

Don’t Build Your Own Entire Platform

The open IoT platform does the work

Few organizations do just one IoT project. A platform approach speeds up the process and reinforces your valuable IoT strengths.

Imagine all your IoT devices accessed, controlled, and managed as if they were all designed together. Imagine everything works with everything, and new devices can build on previous work, or be added to the same beautifully designed and intuitive mobile app. The Afero platform makes that possible.

Most technical challenges have already been solved and incorporated into the platform. This results in fast time to market with a complete solution.

And if you’ve done it before in one IoT project, you can re-use it in another. Afero customers routinely re-use some 90% of their previous work in new projects. This means even faster time to market for new IoT projects.

To sum it up, using the Afero IoT Platform™ means:

  • Consistent engineering.
  • Consistent user experience.
  • No need to invent the wheel.
  • No need to re-invent the wheel!

Avoid the Dreaded “1 Star” Mobile App Reviews

The Mobile App of Your Customers’ Dreams

IoT projects need mobile apps and creating them is time consuming, complex, and costly. The Afero Platform makes that process simple and flexible, providing three fast paths to a mobile app:

  • Use the Afero Profile Editor (APE) to get started quickly in your development phase. Just drag and drop.
  • Leverage the customizable mobile app that comes with the Afero Platform to make a professionally designed and implemented mobile app suitable for your project.
  • Go deeper with Afero Software Development Kits (SDKs) for Android and iOS and develop the app yourself or use a 3rd Party developer of your choice.

Turn Things into Streams of Value

Drilling for Data

“Data is the new oil” and smart things are the new sources of data. Afero makes it practical for you to extract structured data from your fleet of devices.

The Afero Data Explorer saves you time and money by simplifying the design, rapid execution, and visualization of complex queries across historical or time-series data for your fleet.

Think of it as AI-ready data.  Data ingest and preparation are easier when data is already structured. Machine Learning/Deep Learning (ML/DL) is faster and more effective with structured data. And data management is significantly more efficient.

 

Get Ready for the Data Economy

The Digital Supply Chain Is Coming

The future is a blend of physical and digital: atoms and bits.

Digital supply chains will become more common, cooperating with physical supply chains. Defining the chains and matching them is what an IoT platform must do.

With Afero, you can build a seamless and flexible system that handles the full picture: from assets to cloud, from cloud to enterprise, and from enterprise back to the fleet. With all activity available to your business apps using a simple API and structured data.

Data Is a Responsibility and an Opportunity

The New World of Data

The future is not all about data but it is driven by data. The physical world will be more intelligent and optimal the more sources of data you can include and the more relevant data you can access.

If “data is the new oil”, data “spills” can be disastrous. Maintaining security and data privacy are critical. Afero has built a way to extract data from new classes of devices. Its secure foundation enables it to protect the data and harness its value responsibly and ethically.

With Afero, the Answer Is Yes

Onboarding

Can the user’s phone make fast and reliable contact with the device that is controlling the delivery of service?

Network Resiliency

Can a device dynamically change between available channels (Wi-Fi, BLE, LTE) as needed?

Speed, Latency

Can the service be delivered immediately after confirmation?

Scale

Can the system scale to meet demand without loss of quality?

Clouds

Can the service use any cloud depending on the device, geography, new capabilities, or new requirements?

Reliability

Is the system reliable and with predictable service levels to ensure customer satisfaction?

Data

Are we gathering enough usable information to analyze and control the process?

Security

Is the whole process secure? Immune to fleet-scale attacks?
