Each IIoT deployment is not a simple “set and forget” scenario. You need to monitor the health of your devices, be notified if something goes wrong, control your devices remotely, and push new software updates and bug fixes.
relayr Device Management Software provides all the tools necessary to maintain your IIoT deployment and keep it running for many years with minimum downtime.
Originally designed to manage millions of resource-constrained devices in the smart grid, relayr Device Management Software is architected for millions of devices and extendable to support management and data gathering features to practically any type of edge device and business environment.
Maintaining large IIoT deployments is a challenging task. In a system of thousands of remote devices any downtime or security breach can significantly affect your business.
relayr’s Device Management tracks the health of each individual device and notifies you immediately when a device reports an important event or becomes unreachable.
Remote/OTA (over-the-air) software upgradeability is a must-have feature for each large scale deployment. relayr’s Device Management actively tracks software inventory on each device and allows it perform scheduled updates of a single or group of software modules. relayr’s Device Management provides secure storage for software packages and allows it verify package digital signatures to avoid installing any malicious software.
Secure device provisioning is an act of establishing mutual trust between devices and the relayr platform to securely exchange sensitive data and make sure that only genuine Devices, running trusted software and working on the behalf of a trusted user, have access to the relayr platform.
Most of the time, deployed devices will need to be further configured to meet your needs. The configuration can be anything from device name, location or alert thresholds as well as a complex application or industry-specific setting. Control capabilities also include remote execution of commands, such as device reset or reverting to the last known functional configuration.
Gateway Agent is a software component addressing challenges related to volume, variety and velocity of data produced by billions of IoT devices. It works close to where the data is generated by sensors and/or actuators to analyze the most time-sensitive data and react in milliseconds according to defined local rules.
Our Nano Agent is a software component providing data streaming and basic device management capabilities. With a small-footprint of 10kB of Flash memory and 2kB of RAM the Nano Agent can run on most of the existing IoT Devices and Sensors. Depending on the customer needs the Nano Agent can communicate either with a local Gateway Agent or directly with the relayr Core Services.
