You need an IoT platform. Should you build one?
Truth is, creating and maintaining your own IoT solution is impossibly hard. It can seem like a great idea to build your own IoT platform. But many companies have gone down that road and most fail to meet expectations. Too many never launch at all. Afero offers the best solution: tap the best IoT platform on the market, get to market fast, deliver a great customer experience, and maintain control.
At your service: the all-star Afero team
Building the right team is the most critical aspect of successful IoT because IoT spans so many disciplines. There’s hardware integration. There are radios in the hardware. A firmware team must integrate those radios with the device. How about a mobile app? Those developers are expensive! FCC approval for your product? Factory programming at scale for all your connected devices? Cryptographic algorithms? Visualization of data?… IoT is not one thing or even a few things. It’s layers of proven expertise, across a broad spectrum, all built into the Afero Platform.
Can customers actually connect?
The biggest customer complaint? They can’t connect your product to the internet. Routers and phone radios are all different and what works on one phone won’t work on another. You want it all to be easy, secure, and fast. The longest yard…actually connecting.
