IoT Accelerator

The Internet of Things (IoT) has the potential to connect and create digital representations of the physical world, making it possible to transform business models, to enable data-driven decisions and to optimize the performance of business processes. For individuals, IoT provides the potential to save time and improve quality of life.

The speed of these changes triggers the need for new cloud-based solutions to process and deliver a vast amount of information across a wider ICT ecosystem, including devices, applications & enterprise’s back-end systems.

IoT Platforms (aka Application Enablement Platforms) are designed to speed up and simplify the development of IoT solutions by providing developers with tools for integrating connectivity, enable device management, data analytics and expose information through APIs in the market place.

Ericsson is complementing its industry-leading telecom networks with one unified, integrated IoT offering: the Ericsson IoT Accelerator. The Ericsson IoT Accelerator combines Connectivity Management, Device and Data Management, and Security into a single user experience. With a strong, modular approach delivered as a service, IoT Accelerator enables faster time to market, lower risk of investment, and reduced complexity for all IoT applications and services.

Incorporating a constantly growing set of services, Ericsson IoT Accelerator leverages the scale, speed and lower cost of a cloud based solution to address use-cases and applications for both Enterprises and Service Providers.

Ericsson IoT Accelerator is a cloud based horizontal cross-industry offering comprising of platform services and professional services, for service providers and industries.

IoT Accelerator provides a continuous incremental set of functionality offered as a Service to enable agile creation and deployment of solutions for the Internet of Things.

The Software as a service (SaaS) business model provides the speed, scale and lower cost needed for competitively addressing the IoT market challenges. It allows customers to lower the initial risk and to shift investment cost from CAPEX to OPEX.

The delivery strategy is cloud agnostic, meaning that the service is delivered from thepublic cloud and on-premises deployments.

An important characteristic of the IoT Accelerator offering is that although Ericsson provides a full IoT functional stack, customers pick & choose the selected functionality from the stack, paying only for what is consumed.

One of the greatest values under this flexibility lays on the pre-integration of functionality as a Service. It allows a great deal of simplification for customers removing effort, time and cost, including verification, updates, lifecycle, etc.

IoT Accelerator brings world class mobile connectivity management and enables you to build trustworthy secure IoT services on Ericsson’s end-to-end vertically integrated systems. Giving you the speed to market needed to create rapid service deployment and IoT monetization.
