Unique Approach to Cellular IoT
qiio offers proven solutions to allow IoT devices to connect reliably anywhere on the planet
Designing robust edge technology based on Azure Sphere, qiio has combined this with integrated cloud services to enable a customer to have full control of their IoT. Now enterprise can scale IoT with cellular devices that configure themselves and are continuously improving.
Cellular technology is very volatile, with stresses on the network causing seasonal and sometimes daily fluctuations in reliability. Connectivity forensics is constantly analyzing different cellular signals and connecting devices to the best network, carrier and technology, for every device on an individual basis. This service can eliminate up to 95% of connectivity issues.
Replacement of devices and understanding local environments is almost impossible on a large scale IoT deployment. This is due to a lack of endpoints and data to understand local conditions. Device health service uses a combination of predictive analytics and sensors to extend the warranty and support available to customers. Warranty is maintained as long as the service runs.
Tracking your assets are important in any IoT use-case, yet indoor tracking with GPS is not always reliable. qiio location services combine GNSS antennas with a cellular/WiFi triangulation to ensure that a location is available for every asset. Indoor location is accurate within 25m on average.
All popular wire & wireless connectivity options are supported, including 2G, 3G, 4G, Wi-Fi, Ethernet, Bluetooth, LoRa and ZigBee.
Customers have cost-effective cellular connectivity worldwide thanks to more than 550 roaming partners.
qiio’s cloud services enable customers to easily manage their service infrastructure. The cloud services include:
- Data collection: Customers can access device data and cloud services through a REST API.
- Connectivity management: Connectivity management is designed for cellular data monitoring and configuration. Moreover, customers can also check the approximate location of their device. If applicable, customers can configure Wi-Fi and Ethernet connectivity through connectivity management.
- Application enablement: Application management provides a dashboard or hosts customer data under a special format.
- User management: User management is implemented in qiio’s cloud services and enables a company to set roles and permission.
- Asset management: Asset management allows users to remotely conduct security updates, machine configuration and software updates over the air. In addition, a user can also monitor and track a device through asset management.
- Concentrator management: Concentrator management enables users to monitor and configure Concentrators, such as data collection frequency, for example.
Using the Azure IoT Hub establishes a secure, bidirectional communication channel. It also allows a zero-intervention device provisioning to accelerate IoT deployment. The Event Hub enables simple and scalable real-time data ingestion. This architecture provides a single point of entry to the cloud with security managed via a unified, high-security cloud portal.
Cybersecurity is built into all our solutions, from the Concentrator boot to the delivery of your data.
