Hi Molusquillo !
It is true that using AirLink gateways and AirPrime modules you get full advantage of the AirVantage M2M Cloud, however we have designed the AirVantage platform as an Internet-of-Things platform and as such have invested to help you connect 3rd-party devices.
I recommend you take a look at http://airvantage.github.io/ where we have released some tutorials about ‘how to connect 3rd-party devices’
In summary, you have two main ways to do so:
- Either you put an AirVantage agent onto your device - for example, we have made available a Linux implementation, that you can get from the Open Source project Mihini ( http://www.eclipse.org/mihini/ ), but you could develop your own version on another embedded system
- Either you use the AirVantage REST API that allows you to send information to AirVantage M2M Cloud, very easily and without constraints regarding the actual embedded platform. I strongly recommend you browse our Github repository, where everything is well described: airvantage.github.io/tutorials/
In any case, please feel free to contact me if you have any project you would like to work on, and we shall help you grow a sustainable business with your company’s devices and AirVantage M2M Cloud
PS: that said, you should still look at the AirPrime and AirLink products, who are also very well integrated and I am sure you will find some interest in those in conjunction with your company’s assets
