M2M Industry Leaders Partner to Reduce Time to Market and Optimize Application Performance with Innovative Developer Program.

The two M2M industry leaders have also partnered for an innovative 60-day developer program designed to radically decrease time-to-market and optimize performance of M2M applications on the Aeris network. The program provides Telit customers with a 60-day window in which to utilize the Aeris cellular network for application development free of charge, as well as access Aeris’ AerPort web portal, which offers real-time network and device information that is crucial for design processes.

"Aeris and Telit share a likeminded commitment to minimizing the various hurdles developers face when bringing M2M applications to market. Our new developer program offers a very comprehensive toolkit and unsurpassed customer service to help developers through the necessary network certifications so they can focus on the design of the application and launching their product faster," said Michael Ueland, Vice President and General Manager of Telit Wireless Solutions, Inc.
