IoT ecosystems – IoTMaaS
Cypernex is an IoT ecosystem management platform for Enterprises, SME’s, managed service providers, consulting and systems integration specialists to deliver and maintain IoT ecosystems as a service.
By managing the technical complexities and standards a firm can gain IoT project expertise over night.
Cypernex asset and fleet management coupled with embedded service level management positions your firm to create new income streams from IoT and it’s related services.
By repurpose and rebadging the best of your firms existing IT/ITO capabilities you can offer IoT projects to your customers with minimal risk or cost. The platform provides seamless digital transition for customers and stakeholders aiming to acheive best-practice for their IoT technology projects.
A “use-case” in IoT is collection of technologies that solve a problem, such as Vineyard monitoring or water quality management.
Cypernex makes it easy to manage entire IoT fleets from a central location. Supervise, administer, upgrade, service, provide security + life-cycle management of IoT appliances on behalf of yourself or your customers as a service.
Deploy by device, use-case or region to cloud or hybrid platforms using AWS, Azure, Google IoT or on-premise platforms.
You have nothing to lose!
Customers and stakeholders benefits
Make IoT projects easier
IoT projects often start with a test
A developer creates software connector(s) to capture incoming data and store in a database on premise or in the cloud;
THEN: The real work begins
The teams now need to decide how to best use the data for the intended use-case. The IoT device will probably provide other data that may also be of use. The team may also decide additional sensors and more connectors are needed to meet requirements .
Next there is analytics, graphs and other visual display options to be designed, developed and commissioned. UX designers, business consultants must gather requirements from end users. The team must select cloud services and consider their ongoing cost, latency, database storage, scalability, speed, calibration, lamda functions required. When the use case is designed, developed and operating as a POC, only then can deployments planning and commissioing case begin.
Lessons from the DIY approach
The Cypernex alternative
Paradigm - 1:
Keep all Device and Connector information where it can be shared and reused
Cypernex keeps detailed information on equipment and devices by make and model. Then when using that same device the connectors are reused. It retains details of available feature from the devices payload, the terminology and topics and can dissect payload into useful data features the project,
Perhaps you need to use a device you have not used before, but Cypernet or it’s parners have used it previously. Just select that device and instantly leverage device information collected by Cypernex and/or device manufacturer.
Maybe your interested using data for machine learning or in calculations the team is unfamiliar with. Clone and modify use-case based examples to accellerate learning and develop new features.
Keep specifications, design drawings, video and images for field technicians to access through dashboards and mobile service consoles. The platform gathers benchmarks, predictions, forecasts and normal operating conditions. For example air temperature of 15-25 C is normal for food in cold storage, but if this same sensor used in a cool room returned 16C the food would spoil.
Cypernex is a learning platform. It captures information and reuses it in new settings.
Make/model is central to the interoperability between IoT and VR. API integration, images, avatars, asset bundles are just a few of the resources required for interacting with a device from a virtual world.
Manufacture / Model shared across Platform
Using Make / Model:
Paradigm - 2:
Capture a use-case as an Application then reuse it
You can encapsulate the services, connectors, pipeline, dashboards, flows for your use-case as an Application. Once captured you can clone, deploy, upgrade, enhance the application across your fleet(s).
Applications are now software defined and as a commodity you could even sell and deploy from a shopping cart.
Managed service providers would offer complimentary consulting and installation service as a package with your application.
Deployed applications can be managed from the application as a service with service packages range from triage and support to continuious upgrades, life-cycle management security, breach and operational monitoring of device and all microservices and visualization systems in the application.
Cypernex takes care of the technical, while you get on with business.
