An Operating System for Things

In a relatively short period of time, the Internet has fundamentally changed our lives with the ubiquity of instant information. Combined with recent advances in licensed and unlicensed wireless communications, and driven by Moore's law, the era of Connected Things is here.

Our flagship product AOS, is a distributed operating system based on a modified version of the Linux kernel and other open source software, designed primarily for embedded edge computing and the internetworking of Things.

AOS is integrated within our partners networks, and is available on select communications modules - providing an open, extensible, computing platform for client server IoT applications.

Machine-to-Machine Applications

IoT Solutions, whether they be in the telematics, intelligent transportation, healthcare, agriculture, utilities, industrial automation, smart homes, or smart cities domain, all require common network and application services for security, registration, discovery, management, and reliable communications.

Leveraging the oneM2M.org specifications, AOS removes the fragmentation found in today's IoT world by providing an open, extensible, robust IoT Common Services and Security platform that streamlines the rapid development and deployment of client server IoT applications.

Smart Grids

Given our team's heritage in the utility smart metering domain, we have included an open suite of RESTful Metering Services APIs in AOS that provide developers with the ability directly interact with electricity, water, and gas meters, without needing to understand and support the multitude of metering protocols in the market today.

Proven at scale, our PolicyNet Smart Metering application is deployed across the globe in our customer's mission-critical advanced metering infrastructure networks. PolicyNet helps increase operational productivity, lower operational costs, and improve service delivery and customer support.

Our Values

Aetheros is a successful, entrepreneurial engineering team whose passion is building massive machine-type communications software and hardware products. We believe in open source, open standards, and internet protocols. Our products are architected and designed on these beliefs, and are developed and manufactured to meet the most stringent government and industry security requirements.

We have a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery and human trafficking and are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all of our business dealings and relationships. We require the same degree of high standards from all of our suppliers and partners, and expect them to respect, share, and enforce our company’s values and to hold their own suppliers and partners to the same high standards.

Open Standards

Based on a modified version of the Linux kernel and other open source technologies, AOS includes a complete implementation of the oneM2M.org Common Services Entity specifications. With support for market leading licensed and unlicensed wireless communications technologies, AOS simplifies, accelerates, and lowers the overall cost of client server IoT application development, deployment, and management.

Strong Security

In commerical and retail IoT applications, an open standards-based, proven security framework is a must have requirement. To address this application need, AOS includes fully integrated CA/PKI and eAAA systems that provide both device and application identity and security services. AOS leverages the latest in secure element technologies and security algorithms that are present in our supported communications modules.

Open Interfaces

AOS includes a broad suite of open standardized APIs and sample client server IoT application source code. Our mission is to provide developers with extensible simplicity, while not locking them into any proprietary software and networking technologies. The AOS Metering Services APIs provide developers with the ability to quickly interact with market leading electricity, water, and gas meter products.
