Volume-Based Device Agent Pricing
EmbedThis device agents are offered with volume-based or royalty-free subscription plans.
The volume-based subscriptions employ a per-manufactured device fee that is calculated on a sliding scale where the price decreases with increasing device volumes.
The volume-based subscriptions are billed monthly or yearly in advance and offer a lower-cost of entry for smaller device volumes.
The yearly subscription pricing provides a 10% discount over the monthly pricing. If you are using the Ioto device agent, you have the option of automatic device volume metering. In that case, you are billed monthly in arrears.
You can evaluate device agents for free by using the evaluation device agent download. This software is a recent release of the device agent, but does not include the latest patches and features. The eval license includes the ability to embed the agent in one device.
The volume-based subscription fee is based on the number of devices that embed the device agent and are manufactured per month. The price is calculated via a sliding scale where the per-device price decreases with increased volume. The more you build, the lower the subscription per device.
You enter and maintain the number of manufactured devices for your subscription via the Builder site on the Product page. If you are using the Ioto agent, you have the option of having Ioto automatically calculate your device volume as devices are provisioned and tested during manufacture.
Volume Price Brackets
The following price table shows the device subscription price brackets at increasing volume levels.
The price column shows the subscription price once that volume level has been reached for the month. Prices are the price per device per year.
The volume-based subscriptions are billed monthly or yearly in advance. The yearly subscription pricing provides a 10% discount over the monthly pricing. If you are using the automatic Ioto device volume metering, you are billed monthly in arrears.
If you discontinue your agent subscription, you need to cease shipping new products that include the device agent. You can continue to use existing devices that contain the device agent or the Ioto cloud service.
For example: If you have 1001 devices manufactured during the month, the calculation would be as follows:
- Devices 1 to 10 -- $35 each
- Devices 11 to 100 -- $8.80 each
- Devices 101 to 1000 - $2.20 each
- Device 1001 -- $0.55
So the annual device subscription would be: $35 x 9 + $8.80 x 90 + $2.20 x 900 + $0.29 * 1
Annual Total: $3,087.29
The monthly subscription would then be: ~$258
