Numerous Modules
Joined in One IoT Platform

Use our key modules to build advanced applications for smart products or services, from remote device provisioning and management, to orchestrating end-to-end data processing, automating business processes, and many more.

  • Support for different devices, data and communication protocols (including legacy communication protocols)

  • Support for different semantic standards (JSON, Protobuf)

  • Support for SDKs in various programming languages

  • Support for gateways which serve as access points for systems that are not designed to share data

  • Translating non-IP-compatible protocols (Modbus, Profinet, Bluetooth, Z-Wave)

  • Interoperability between multiple connectivity technologies

  • LPWAN-ready for ultra-low bandwidth solutions

connectivity-device
  • Manage all customers together on one instance with 100% secure data segregation

  • Leverage built-in tools to administer individual clients/users of your solution

DEVICE LIFECYCLE MANAGEMENT

  • Perform trusted device identification and secure device on-boarding

  • Remotely manage a lifecycle of any device type from ultra-constrained, non-IP devices running a device OS to feature-rich devices and gateways running Linux

  • Monitor devices and perform diagnostics remotely

  • Configure and control devices remotely

  • Manage device firmware/software over-the-air

  • Use registry for recognising devices (pre-provisioning)

  • Use ready-made device simulators

  • Exploit mass device management features: bulk registration, bulk update schedule and rules definition, bulk roll-out and bulk monitoring features

GATEWAY MANAGEMENT

  • (De)provision, monitor, configure and control gateways

  • (De)provision non-IP-enabled devices and manage their files, process edge events and exploit remote troubleshooting

create-device-type

USER MANAGEMENT

  • Onboard, group and manage a large number of users securely and reliably

  • Exploit security and authentication management, identity creation and access revocation

ROLE-BASED ACCESS MANAGEMENT

  • Enforce the fine-grained security policy with proven role-based access control (RBAC) model

  • Utilise a fully customisable user role definition

  • Determine who can view and access different assets with asset roles

AUDIT LOGGING

  • Easily investigate user behaviour and activity, as well as track and trace all events that occurred in the system

  • Manage liability or chain of custody with logged audit trails and reporting capabilities

global-roles

DATA INGESTION, NORMALISATION AND AGGREGATION

  • Collect and unify diverse data from different devices, enterprise systems and third-party sources (for example, external weather data, road conditions or commodity pricing)

  • Transform, enrich and prepare machine and sensor data for further analysis

DATA STORAGE

  • Use structured databases (MySQL) for devices, users and transactions

  • Use high-performance non-relational databases (Cassandra) for the event and telemetry data

SYNTHETIC VARIABLES (CALCULATED FEED)

  • Transform raw insights into a new feed which acts like a regular one by combining numerous input sources (e.g. sensor, static and third-party data) using math formulas and statistical expressions

DATA SEMANTICS (MODELLING)

  • Model data to define your business logic and create virtual representations of real-world objects or physical systems and processes

  • Link data and operations coming from one or many different devices or external sources and organise assets in hierarchies

  • Enrich data with contextual information by attaching both static and dynamic attributes and adding advanced data tagging

  • Keep the real and digital worlds in sync by storing and updating the data, properties, and relationships of an asset and providing notifications of all relevant changes

DATA EXPORTER

  • Export data to different formats and utilise them across multiple systems and applications, like BI, ERP, Building and Warehouse Management Systems, and similar

data-management semantic-group-details

RULE ENGINE

  • Determine how your system should react to a certain event or how to handle a piece of data using our Domain Specific Language

  • Create a straightforward expression which will be evaluated in relation to real-time data

All Rules are based on a Triggers-Conditions-Actions structure

Set conditions: data and time, geofences and thresholds (instantaneous, with duration, with counter, delta value change from the previous), dynamic and static attributes

Manage actions: actuations, changing device configurations, sending push notifications, emails, HTTP requests, generating readings

GEOSPATIAL ANALYTICS AND GEOFENCING

  • Analyse real-time geospatial data from multiple sources

  • Visually define multiple places of interest for each asset separately and create events whenever assets enter or leave geofence borders

rule-engine-details

DATA AND EVENT MONITORING

  • Receive different types of notifications (email, SMS, push notifications) when certain important events occur, or certain conditions are reached in any part of your digital solution

DATA VISUALISATION

  • Build and customise operational dashboards to monitor real-time data, control devices and gain a unified view of all processes and systems

  • Choose among different widgets: system status, live readings, gauges, maps, layout widgets, notifications, charts, various types of actuators, and more

  • Show devices, groups, routes, geofences, and other objects on the maps that use any source, such as Google Maps, OpenStreetMap, or others; add the layers and enable indoor tracking

  • Analyse historical data through reports and integrated analytics tools

dashboard
  • Authentication and authorisation at both the user and the device level

  • Setting permissions and privileges with proven role-based access control model

  • The encryption of data-in-transit and data-at-rest

  • TLS protocol to secure communication

  • Login control using session tokens and expiration timeout management

  • Comprehensive audit tracing and trailing

  • Strict privacy standards that fully comply with GDPR requirements

  • Certified using some of the most rigorous third-party security assessments (example: ISO 27001)

  • Independent third-party security audits
