Internet of Everything product platform from TKE
Internet-of-Everything (IoE) covers both Internet-of-Things (IoT) and Internet-of-passive-things, resulting connectivity to any device and any kind of device or person.
There is a need for a holistic approach in the field, because there is no sense for embedding active connectivity into the cheapest and simplest passive devices. TKE has a comprehensive support for IoE related applications and many projects in such area and is focusing deployments based both Internet and private networks with on-premise server frameworks.
Active things in an IoE solution can be divided in few different parts as described below:
Customizable, modular and portable Gateway applications for fieldbus protocols for downstreaming communication. Gateways including local buffer database for coping with uplink communication problems without data losses. Gateways having server specific uplink communication.
Supplemental devices which can be connected to TKE IoE platform can be Inertial measurement units, active sensors, I/O, etc.
TKE IoE can be integrated into existing control systems, supplemental sensor networks, using standard protocols like J1939, CANopen, Modbus. In addition to this the IoE platform can be used in protocol implementations.
IoT solutions have existed several years and do include earlier mentioned Active things. New in the TKE IoE platform is that we can add also passive things into the IoE platform. Examples of these passive things can be hydraulic hoses, nuts, bolts etc. The IoE platform allows use of mobile devices for on-demand communication. More passive things which can be added are, for instance, QR- of NFC- or Hybrid tags.
