Guaranteed operation, whether or not you pay
If the company producing the connected product does not need access to the data generated, the
user accounts can be transferred to the end customers, effectively meaning that the operation
of the IoT platform is free for the company. This means that Seluxit will have a direct
relationship to the customer.
Few companies choose this option, but its implication is that even if you create a connected
product that is a market failure, you can still count on guaranteed operation of your system.
This is important, because purchasers of connected products expect the product to function for
a number of years.
Consider these two examples.
In both examples, each device sends 0,5 KB every 15 minutes. Data is both sent to and forwarded
out of the IoT platform.
|Each individual user pays and manages access to their data
||The company pays and manages access to each users data
Up to 69 devices*
* (0,5 KB * 4 * 24 * 30 * 2 = 2.880 KB / month. 2.880 * 69 = 198,72 MB)
** (2.880 KB / month * 10.000 = 28,8 GB)
