By Chrissie Cluney December 27, 2016

Are you searching for a way in which your company’s OEMs can simplify cellular connectivity for your company’s devices?

Airfi is a global provider of technologies to simplify cellular connectivity for devices, and it recently announced the availability of Catalyst by Airfi. This turnkey platform was designed to enable original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to quickly and easily integrate connected devices with cellular networks without having to invest significant time, money and effort.

“Catalyst eliminates the commercial and technical challenges OEMs face working with carriers to connect their products. It supports the full connectivity lifecycle of their devices by enabling seamless provisioning and enrollment, thereby helping our customers reduce time to market whilst generating new recurring revenue streams from cellular service subscriptions,” said Dariush Zand, CCO and co-founder, Airfi.

Catalyst by Airfi eases complexity by providing a simple platform from which companies can activate devices and enroll customers to quickly monetize their products. Airfi has partnered with carriers in North America to bring the company’s unique platform to its customers in a variety of flexible configurations and will roll out globally in 2017.

Catalyst comes with many features, which provide the user with the best experience while using this platform. MyCatalyst is a full end user lifecycle management application. RESTful API allows for the seamless integration of an OEM’s customer system into the Catalyst platform. Catalyst Central offers an intuitive portal and interface for managing end users.

Airfi, a network reseller, eliminates the need for OEMs to spend time, money and effort integrating with cellular networks. OEMs can leverage Catalyst by Airfi to bring products to market more quickly by removing the technical barriers of working with multiple carriers and network infrastructures in different markets. Catalyst by Airfi also helps to generate additional revenue for carriers. This is achieved by enabling them to move quickly in order to efficiently support OEMs interested in using their networks, no matter their size. 

Catalyst by Airfi offers customized support for connected devices because the Airfi realizes that cellular connections can be a challenge for OEMs looking to quickly bring products to market. The platform requires connectivity and security while on the move or where Wi-Fi may not be available. Catalyst by Airfi can be used for a variety of applications from low bandwidth services such as tracking, to high bandwidth services such as video recording for use with security cameras.
