IoT can be a real monster to control, especially if you have a host of legacy systems, third party sensors and components, and little to no way to bring them all together. The fact of the matter is that IoT only works when it provides you valuable insights and actionable information from the environment in which it is deployed.
Enter the Netshield end-to-end IoT offering, designed to help customers better build and incorporate IoT into their greenfield or existing business environments. Our solution covers the whole spectrum, from sensors to intelligent gateways and monitoring tools that enable you to view the full spectrum of your IoT environment in a single or structured dashboard.
What’s more is you don’t have to buy it all if you don’t need it all. All of our IoT solutions can be acquired as an end-to-end solution or as components for an existing environment – right from the dashboard to the sensor.
IoT is also notoriously difficult to monitor when you have disparate components in the environment, such as sensors, devices and systems from which you want to gather data from. This can often lead to distributions that simply don’t work, or that only provide a fraction of what you really want from your IoT implementation.
So what does this mean to you? Our IoT products and solutions that are specifically designed to “talk to each other” through robust integration and adherence to global standards, including communication protocols such as MQTT, AMQP, COAP and SNMP.
Our gateways can relay events to multiple storage devices and databases simultaneously, to ensure simplification of integration into existing monitoring tools. Thus an IoT protocol can be used for bulk storage of events while active events are logged into existing management tools. You can then make use of our sensors, gateways and dashboards to secure all of the events and alerts received and send them to the database and enable reporting for later analysis and business intelligence.
We have also ensured that our solution integrates with the majority of the major cloud vendors, such as Azure, AWS, SAP and IBM, to ensure data is correctly and accurately recorded from the sensor to the cloud or database. As stated earlier they also support all the major IoT communication protocols and will continue to log event data when the primary communication links fail and on reestablishment of a connection they will update the information they have recorded and the events they have logged, back to the database.
Our management and monitoring dashboard gives you a full view of the IoT environment and will alert you to failures of sensors, down to an individual level. Our gateways also support third party installations and provide a single view of multiple environments via a single dashboard, and they simplify the complexity of IoT and network monitoring and control to a level that anyone can understand.
If you do opt to deploy a Netshield IoT gateway, it will relay events to your cloud-based IoT-Hub, a private WAN, to a cloud or a local database for future analysis and intelligence. And our multi-layered hierarchical dashboard structure lets you view the full network and drill down layer by layer right down to individual sensors. The dashboards are interactive and the views can be manipulated as well as support built in security with multi-layer access, role and user parameter settings.
Our extensive range of sensors can also assist with identifying and alerting a user to events such as changes in temperature, fire, water detection, smoke, gas, motion and access control, to name but a few.
As part of our value-added offering we also assists clients with backup stock, extended warrantees, financing options and an OEM monitoring services.
So if IoT is on your radar – speak to us first. Likewise, if you are battling with a failed IoT implementation then chat to us and let us help you to get it to work!
