UK cellular IoT connectivity provider Eseye claims to be revolutionising device deployment through integration with Amazon Web Services (AWS).

The company’s AnyNet Iris application can simplify management across AWS regions for IoT projects. Additional features include SIM card management from within users’ AWS accounts and faster automated setup of the global AWS IoT environment for Marketplace users.

Eseye’s development builds on a four-year relationship with AWS as an Advanced Technology Partner, and lets users manage their global IoT connectivity directly from within their AWS Cloud programmatically, through Lambda functions or the AWS Management Console.

As part of the upgrade, Eseye has introduced the AnyNet Iris app, simplifying the process of deploying the connectivity management resources in the user’s own AWS Cloud. Designed as an Electron app, Iris runs on Windows 10 and MacOs and provides an enhanced view of the status of the cellular IoT connections.

“Device registration and the delivery of security and identity material needed to connect to cloud IoT services can be a cumbersome task,” said Ian Marsden, founder and CTO of Eseye. “With this latest upgrade to our AWS IoT integration, we’ve simplified the whole process, saving time and reducing complexity. This results in better end-user experience through quicker device set-up and improved estate visibility.”

The version uses serverless tools from AWS to improve the efficiency of the deployment in the user’s account, reducing costs and the latency of metadata reporting. Configurable notifications and alerts ensure users are proactively informed of steps they can take to optimise the performance of their devices.

With the AnyNet Secure SIM technology and connectivity management platform, Eseye customers can achieve near 100% global connectivity and uptime. To support global deployments, localisation of the SIM profile is automatically triggered when needed to ensure end user IoT devices remain compliant to local network roaming legislation around the world.

Eseye provides managed global IoT cellular services working with companies deploying IoT devices.
