M2M/ IoT Integration Services
M2M Design Services provides a suite of integration services for the M2M/IoT market covering:
M2M Connectivity supplies a diverse range of hardware. The M2M Design Services team can recommend the most suitable product and customise the hardware to your specific needs saving your time/resources.
Our team of engineers can assist by:
- Working with the customer to understand solution requirements
- Recommending the suitable hardware and other components used in the solution
- Producing the suitable configuration or embedded codes to be loaded on the hardware to meet the project specs
- Loading the custom built application/software onto the devices and providing a full provisioning service for shipment to end customer.
Software DevelopmentMany of the modems and routers M2M Connectivity sell include a development environment which allows us to develop custom embedded software solutions. Our team of engineers are skilled at developing code to meet the unique needs of our customers. Examples of specific code development include:
- Integrating satellite fail-over into 4G router code to minimise satellite date (and costs) whilst allowing critical communications to continue when cellular coverage is lost
Developing custom code on a modem to meet unique requirements of a customer
Customer Cloud Platform IntegrationM2M Design Services works with customers to enable secure connection of customer’s devices/gateways to an IoT cloud platform or portal or other back-end application. In a typical M2M/IoT application, the remote wireless devices:
- Collect and present sensor data to platforms
- Command and control remote systems
M2M Connectivity works with widely-used industrial communication protocols (e.g. MQTT/TCP or via HTTP ) using various APIs to communicate with back-end platform (e.g. Cumulocity, Azure, AWS, or a customer’s private server).
Our cloud platform integration also addresses the need for bridging data between various cloud platform/portals.
Network ArchitectureDeploying an IoT network can sometimes feel overwhelming when so many options are available. Making the right decision is vital to having a future-proof IT system.
M2M Design Services provides expert advice about the most suitable network to deploy based on your project’s needs. Our Engineers will help you on your IoT journey.
- Technology selection based on project requirements and advice on future-proofing networks
- Combining different wireless networks to provide total solutions (e.g. satellite, cellular, LPWAN, private radio)
- Radio site survey and assistance on-site to determine the best way to implement the network
- Hardware pre-configuration such as sensors and gateways
