There were several challenges faced:

  • Since this data would be in the public domain, accuracy and authenticity of this data were of paramount importance. It should be able to withstand scrutiny.
  • It is challenging to build an appliance that can withstand a wide range of voltage fluctuations from as low at 90v to as high as 320v. Since the device would be installed in remote locations, its resilience was of paramount importance.
  • The device would have to deal with poor network coverage and have the ability to store and re-transmit data if networks were not available, which is often the case in rural India. The device could store up to 30 days of data.
  • The platform that deals with the data should be readily available and highly reliable and never lose a packet of data.

Altizon provided an end-to-end solution for the customer that included Design for Manufacture Service for building the connected device and the Datonis® platform that acted as the IoT platform for these connected devices. The Datonis® platform was provided to the customer in a SaaS model.

  • The connected device consisted of a smart connected energy meter that was rated to accurately measure voltage.
  • The connected energy meter had a SIM card slot and was compatible with all service providers in India.
  • It was plug and play so you could simply plug it in and it would work.
  • The customer was given a secure account on Datonis® and access the Datonis® Application API to access the data being transmitted by the energy meters.
  • The customer built their portal that would visualize this data in a manner that made business sense to them.

Hardware
Processors provide the intelligence behind IoT systems and are often integrated into system-on-a-chip designs.
Hardware that enables dual directional communication for data collection and control message delivery. Examples include cellular, Ethernet, and Wi-Fi.
Sensors transform energy into electrical data; they are the eyes and ears of IoT. Actuators transform electrical data into energy; they are the muscle of IoT.
IoT power supplies include traditional, thin-film and printed batteries, energy harvesting modules, flexible photovoltaic panels and thermoelectric sources.
Products used by end users that contain IoT technologies. Examples include enabled equipment, wearables, hand-held scanners, and tracking devices.
IoT sensors and devices that are worn or embedded into clothing or accessories.
Software
Horizontal applications are standardized (e.g., asset tracking). Vertical applications are tailored to specific needs (e.g., delivery fleet management).
APIs are the market enabler for IoT. They allow users to manage devices, enable data transfer between software, and provide access capabilities.
IoT analytics includes real-time or edge computing and batch analysis. Analytics can be behavioral, descriptive, predictive, or prescriptive.
Visualization solutions use dashboards, alerts, events, maps, and other tools to present easily comprehensible data to end users.
Data management solutions capture, index and store data in traditional database, cloud platforms, and fog systems for future use.
Services
IoT data management consultancies help to make sense of big data, decide which data to maintain and for how long, and troubleshoot IT issues.
IoT software consultancies support the development of data analytics, visualization solutions, and platforms, as well as integration into embedded systems.
Connectivity as a service as provided by telecommunications companies, i.e. data transfer, radio waves.
