APS is a Mobile Virtual Network Operator enabling Machine to Machine data communication.
It refers to the communication between and an end point smart device, such as a street light, or monitoring system and the backend smart device management system or controller.
The emergence of Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) together with the cost of laying in physical wire, has meant more and more M2M communications are moving to OTA.
APS enables the mobile data communications channel through the provision of a mobile data infrastructure service.
Behind it is an entire infrastructure to deliver the M2M data across a secure and robust network called the Ark. The customer or end user is provided with a SIM management portal that enables them to manage their SIMs.
