Aeris Connectivity Service and APIs
AerPort is underpinned by a platform built from the ground up to provide the best possible connectivity service for your M2M solution. As operators of a network processing hundreds of millions of transactions each day, we understand the mandate for control, visibility and scale. Our engineers are relentlessly committed to ensure we’re doing everything we can to help you excel in the quickly emerging IoT market. Nothing is more important to that commitment than giving you the power to automate sophisticated, time-consuming network operations and perform big data analytics in near real-time. We do that by exposing details about your devices’ network activity via a set of APIs. Our APIs are accessible with the appropriate credentials, some publicly and others via VPN connection. This page summarizes what’s available and the rest of this section dives into the details.
API Process Flow Overview
AerAdmin – Device Administration
Device administration is accessible to applications through the AerAdmin Web Services API. The AerAdmin API enables the application to automatically manage the life cycle of the device, from initial provisioning through cancellation, including:
In addition to the basic device life cycle management, the API enables rate plan assignment and changes for devices. Applications can make these changes to single devices or as Bulk Actions to multiple devices with one API call. Learn more about using the AerAdmin API to perform device administration.
