On the heels of its recent snom announcement, Axiros, the technology leader in device management, TR-069, and IoT solutions for service providers, enterprises, and OEMs, today announced that its Cloud, software, and managed service product portfolio for the Internet of Things (IoT) and device management is poised to handle the substantial market growth predicted by industry analysts for vertical and horizontal markets. What makes Axiros unique in this market is its “open” architecture – open to integrate the key Service Provider IT systems and to connect to managed devices over a wide range of protocols and networking technologies.
In its 2014 report, industry research firm IDC said it had looked at the components, processes, and IT support for IoT and expects the technology and services revenue to expand from $4.8 trillion in 2012 to $7.3 trillion by 2017.
Gartner further details this concept by predicting that:
- Ubiquitous computing and IoT are the #1 and #2 top technology trends for 2015
- By 2018 at least 10 different wireless technologies will be used in IoT applications
- 10x expected growth in the processing power of units in the IoT market by 2018
[Gartner IT Symposium, 2014]
This presents an immediate and substantial opportunity for Axiros, who is well poised as a leader in IoT solutions to continue to serve this growing market, particularly in the verticals. The development of the IoT market will not be consistent across all vertical markets. Industries that already “understand” IoT will see the most immediate growth, such as industrial production/automotive, transportation, and energy/utilities. However, all verticals will reflect great opportunity.
All of the above calls for products with open architecture and ability to adapt to the current pace of technology evolution.
Axiros’ traditional customers – the telcos and service providers – are opting for legacy and new service offerings including managed services and Cloud-based offerings to keep them competitive in the market for consumer and enterprise services. OEMs choose Axiros for its innovative technology and implementation. Deployments are worldwide, on fixed and wireless networks. For example:
- ecotel is managing the VPN for a large insurance company based on Axiros
- AT&T is managing Hot WorkDesk/phones for Shell via Axiros worldwide
- ADTRAN uses Axiros for IoT and FTTH service provisioning and assurance
- A major European digital media provider is using Axiros for IPTV monitoring
- RosTelecom and ZyXEL use Axiros for Carrier Wi-Fi Management

SmartHome, SmartGrid, and Beyond
In addition, Axiros has long been active in the SmartGrid, Smart Cities and utilities space, with its Axperience product line. Customers, like LyseSmart, use Axiros to bring their utility offers into the 21st century with smart, connect service offerings. Axiros even is participating in a significant MicroGrid research study with German Fraunhofer Institute to learn more about how information and control can benefit other MicroGrids worldwide.
SmartHomes and Smart Businesses need the ability to communicate as more objects are becoming embedded with sensors. Axiros enables devices and networks to make use of the resulting information – to create new business models, to improve business process, and to reduce costs and risks. Dynamic OTT and telcos seeking industry-specific solutions look to Axiros for monitoring and management of entire systems, including:
- Heating, Ventilations and Air Conditioning (HVAC)
- Audio / Video
Axiros has successfully brought to market some manufacturer-specific products to meet customer demand:
- axess.snom for VoIP telephony
- axess.avm for broadband connections and intelligent home networking
- axess.patton for VoIP, Ethernet extension, and high-availability router technologies
For customers looking to deploy solutions by any of these manufacturers, the benefits of using Axiros technology include faster deployment, guaranteed interoperability, and ease of integration.
Axiros will be joining its partner Patton and its distributor 888VoIP in booth #500 at the IT Expo, January 28-30, 2015 in Miami. If you are interested in meeting Axiros while at the show, please contact us to schedule a convenient time.
