Rapid Deployment of Custom Operational Tech for IoT
Industrial, vehicle, transportation networks, smart buildings, medical and point-of-service devices all need to integrate and communicate for control and monitoring purposes – this is the basis of Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications which is creating the IoT revolution.
Cloud-connected line-of-business assets provide a constant connectivity and stream of data whose analysis may provide value to the enterprise as a whole. This is the “Internet-of-Things” in action. At the edge, and close to the edge of these networks “Operational Technlogy” is needed for monitoring and control. Systems to collect and distribute data, using a range of wireless technologies, often connected via a modem to provide GPRS/EDGE, 3G or 4G connectivity is a standard requirement. Networks of sensors may use LoRaWAN, Sigfox, Zigbee, Thread or other IEEE 802.15.4 / 6LoWPAN protocols to form local or mesh networks. For cloud connectivity, solutions such as Microsoft’s Azure IoT offer a complete solution. Most of Direct Insight’s embedded solutions are key IoT Operational Technology building blocks including:
ARM Family board TRITON-TXFB A production-ready ARM-based solution with optional WiFi and modem connectivity
SparkGate-7 IoT Gateway is a modular solution for gateway implementation, including cellular modem, WiFi, Bluetooth, Thread and Zigbee
TRITON-TX ARM-based modules the heart of a custom ARM-based solution for IoT/M2M projects
