Hardware, Software y Servicios M2M (Machine to Machine) / IoT (Internet of Things)

 

Machine to Machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) projects follow a common technological paradigm: intelligent devices, seamlessly connected to the Internet, enable remote services and provide actionable data. From Eurotech's point of view, the IoT acronym is more adopted in the consumer space while M2M has a stronger industrial connotation. For our purposes the two acronyms are equivalent, although we prefer M2M due to our industrial-grade hardware device manufacturing heritage.

Eurotech develops and offers the technical building blocks required to assemble distributed systems of devices and sensors which are effectively connected to IT infrastructures. Eurotech solutions are a combination of hardware, firmware, operating systems, programming frameworks that dramatically accelerate the time to market of M2M / IoT projects and enable customers to layer their added-value components on a reliable read-to-use infrastructure.

 

 

One of the most important aspects of the "Internet of Things" (IoT) vision is that smart objects communicate effectively with each other and with applications residing in data centers or the cloud. Eurotech develops and offers the technical building blocks required to build distributed systems of devices and sensors to be effectively interconnected with IT infrastructures.

Eurotech solutions are a combination of hardware, firmware, operating systems, programming frameworks and external infrastructure that enable customers focus on their core activities.

From the individual developer to the largest system integrator, now with Eurotech solutions it is possible to cut time to market and deliver scalable, cost effective projects without the need to care about low level details and external infrastructure.

The combination of Eurotech ESF software framework and the Everyware Cloud permit a dramatic acceleration of the completion of even the most complex project and dramatically reduce the overall costs, by eliminating the need to deal with the implementation of wired and wireless infrastructures, data management and storage, protocol translation and the integration in the business application.

ESF is Eurotech's Everyware Software Framework, a programming environment that wraps the complexity of low level device management with high level constructs. This approach permits simpler and faster programming, with shorter, easier to read code and transparent portability across different hardware platforms.

Everyware Cloud is a complete, scalable infrastructure that, working together with ESF, enables Eurotech devices to send and receive data to the end application where pre-made or user designed components consume it. With Everyware Cloud, it is possible to modulate the size of the infrastructure as required, for instance starting with just a few test samples and then deploying the same devices in tens of thousands. Scaling up does not require any change: Everyware Cloud will scale accordingly to provide you with the performance and capacity you need.

 

 

 

The combination of all required building blocks for designing, implementing, deploying and running M2M (or device to business application) infrastructures, we have named the Everyware Device Cloud or simply EDC. EDC seamlessly integrates a broad variety of hardware platforms, operating systems, ESF, the EDC Client and the Everyware Cloud into one complete M2M solution.

M2M Platform: Main Features

M2M Integration Platform Benefits

Eurotech’s M2M Integration Platform Everyware Cloud offers benefits, beyond the general benefits of cloud computing, specific to collecting, controlling, transporting, and analyzing data from the field, regardless of how big your field is; whether it is a building, a campus, a city, a county or the world.

M2M Platform's benefits include:

Simplicity

Simplicity in rule creation. Users create or enhance business processes using the Everyware Cloud’s complex event processing rules engine. The rules engine uses common programming syntax to create rules, with no need for a complex and tedious manual process. Users can create rules quickly, adjust rules instantly and add new rules simply.

Speed

data from the field is only as useful as the enterprise’s ability to access it. The faster users can access the data, the more valuable it is in driving business actions. The Everyware Cloud has the longest live data period on the market, so the data can be queried as quickly as possible for up to 36 months or longer. Other systems force users to archive data more often, so it takes longer to access the data and use it to improve or protect business results.

Flexibility

flexible in how you use data, and prepared for changes that simply can’t be anticipated today. The Everyware Cloud’s broker model lets users access data from devices across applications, build relationships between data sources and take action in one area based on data from another.

Efficiency

because the Everyware Cloud uses a protocol optimized for M2M device communications, bandwidth use is low, keeping down network costs.

Power and Agility

level the playing field. Everyware Cloud gives small and medium size businesses new capabilities that used to be available only to companies that could invest huge amounts of time and resources. With a good idea and the Everyware Cloud, enterprises of any size can take on their largest competitors.

ESF: Main Features

ESF separates the hardware from the foundation logic and the foundation logic from the business logic. This separation simplifies application development by providing common foundation layers and allowing OEMs to focus on application-specific code development.

Device drivers are approached as services, implemented using simple APIs instead of complex code.

The simple API removes the need to modify low level OS code or configuration files by creating application code and adding process and vertical knowledge to the development process. Because ESF is based on standardized open software backed by large industry companies, OEMs can easily port existing applications from third parties to their own devices.

ESF middleware includes tooling that allows OEMs to modify, reconfigure and maintain their application over time; to evolve as market demands change.

Adaptability and flexibility to meet market requirements gives OEMs a huge competitive advantage over static, fixed functionality software applications.

Manage risk through ESF, by selecting the framework that lets you adjust quickly, easily, and inexpensively.
