Bringing All the Components of
the Digital Ecosystem Together
Exploit a multi-layer technology that facilitates communication and data flow between hardware and applications.
Ensure security, availability and interoperability.
Obtain a unified view of your enterprise.
Deploy your solution on-premises, in any public or private cloud (including your current cloud environment), or as a multi-layered hybrid.
You can even install it in a network without Internet access. It’s up to you!
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
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 and Edge Management
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
(De)provision, monitor, configure and control gateways
(De)provision non-IP-enabled devices and manage their files, process edge events and exploit remote troubleshooting
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
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
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
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
Export data to different formats and utilise them across multiple systems and applications, like BI, ERP, Building and Warehouse Management Systems, and similar
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
Data Visualisation and Monitoring
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
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
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
Architecture Built for
Performance and Availability
Figuring out which component is the best for any job under the hood is our main responsibility. We take the best in class components like Cassandra, MySQL, Redis, RabbitMQ, and fine-tune them to provide you with the most robust digitalisation suite.
Elastic scalability of the Platform to support all use cases across multi-regional deployments (enabling scale up and scale out); Containerised by Docker and orchestrated with Kubernetes.
Modules can be added, removed and updated independently, enabling sizing of the Platform servers from embedded environments up to cloud infrastructures.
Low-latency bidirectional communication between devices and the Platform, bulk devices registration and deprovisioning, and near-real-time device monitoring status.
Zero lock-in; no need to configure and modify the core of the Platform for additional functionalities.
Effective handling of numerous types of devices over multiple types of communication protocols to feed data into the cloud or in-house servers.
Tested for availability under the most traffic-intensive work environments, with fault tolerance, efficient failover and disaster recovery solutions.
