Afero has built a strong set of partnerships across the IoT technology spectrum as it leads a new approach for end-to-end IoT with notable projects such as Kenmore and D-Link.  Afero was named a 2016 Cool Vendor in the Internet of Things by Gartner, Inc.

At the conference, Afero will highlight the impressive results of its solution across commercial, industrial, and consumer markets. Afero customers have experienced as much as 80% reduction in time-to-market, 99% fewer support calls, and 10x better activation rates. Customers with multiple projects, in addition, have seen dramatic reduction in time-to-market for subsequent projects because they can re-use the work done for one device in a project for another device.
