Amid the Hannover Messe, Ericsson announces the IoT Accelerator, ushered as a service to empower customers for rapid development and deployment of new IoT solutions cost-effectively.
Indulging data management, billing, device management, connectivity services and analytics, The IoT Accelerator combines horizontal, feature-rich IoT platforms with Ericsson’s services and a marketplace where customers from sectors such as public safety, utilities, transport and smart cities can connect with partners and monetize their solutions.
The new rollout is reported to leverage the Ericsson Cloud System to support hybrid cloud deployments and meet data sovereignty and security requirements. All main connectivity standards are supported, and the Accelerator will leverage Ericsson’s Cellular for Massive IoT software solutions, including support for NB-IoT, LTE Cat-M1 and EC-GSM-IoT technologies for low-power wide area applications.
Being offered as a service, Ericsson will leverage complete portfolio of services, including everything from initial setup services to business consulting, application development and maintenance, systems integration and industry transformation services.
Planned expansion modules include a self-service portal, developer environment and software development kit.
Orvar Hurtig, Head of Industry & Society at Ericsson said, “We believe in empowering organizations to connect people, devices and things as quickly and easily as possible. We will initially focus on public safety, utilities, transport and smart cities customers, continuously adjusting to their needs and feedback, and improving ease of use and delivery speed through a DevOps approach to software development. We deliver these capabilities to our customers via the IoT Accelerator.”
Witnessing the rapid adoption and successful customer engagements, the Swedish communication technology giant is striving customers to adapt to local preferences, adhere to specific regional or industry regulatory requirements and enable ecosystem cooperation to develop solutions that can be rapidly brought to market.
Given the reason, The networking giant will support IoT Accelerator customers with regional business labs that can execute global capabilities locally.
IoT Accelerator will be available at the end of Q3 to customers globally.
