IoT Solutions
In the near future, billions of pieces of equipment will be connected to one another and massive amounts of data will pouring in. Advanced algorithms, high-powered computing, better connectivity and cloud storage all facilitate the emergence of smart systems. Knowing how to leverage the respective opportunities, however, requires a unique set of skills. Siemens has the engineering, domain and digital know-how to generate performance improvements across the entire value chain, from design to production and operations to maintenance. Digital simulation technology accelerates the plant design, the installation and commissioning as well as the entire product design and production planning process. Multiple components in systems and plants can be intelligently networked to communicate with each other and exchange real-time data. Machine Learning makes complex systems more efficient without human intervention. The intelligent analysis of operational data helps identify patterns and predict potential downtimes. Minimum downtimes boost reliability thanks to lifecycle services.
The Internet of Things is an infrastructure of interconnected objects. The connection? Itron. Itron’s innovative technologies securely connect millions of devices and revolutionize device monitoring, edge analytics and command and control capabilities delivering real-time solutions and human interaction to societal issues.
SEMA Cloud comprises a cloud server architecture hosting the SEMA Cloud IoT Service which can be managed and administered by a web based Management Portal and which is provided to ADLINKs customers as Platform as a Service (PaaS). And it includes a smart Gateway software with an IoT stack on top of intelligent SEMA middleware, enabling embedded devices to connect securely to the cloud using state-of-the-art Encryption technologies without additional design requirements. By pushing data to the users cloud server via any kind of TCP/IP connection such as 3G, 4G, LAN or wireless LAN — system operators have easy access to data and analytics through web browsers or a web Application Programming Interface (WebAPI), using devices such as desktop PC, tablet or smartphone or using data analytics systems. System operators can verify, monitor and manage system performance from a single, central location, improving reliability and reducing management costs.
