Industrial Automation and Security

Vehicle Tracking with M2M

With the need for automation in industrial applications becoming an increasingly important factor with new designs different methods of connecting devices is required. Sending data between devices through wireless connections allows developers to create dynamic systems where different units can be dropped in to access and use data with minimal install time and cost.

Using short range wireless protocols such as Bluetooth can be advantageous for applications that are in a small, fixed location, but what about larger scale, dynamic applications? This is where leveraging the cellular networks and M2M connectivity is valuable, offering a potentially global coverage where, for example, factories in Germany can work in tandem with factories and machinery in China or the UK. Device monitoring and management can also be decentralised with the use of GSM communication, allowing you to create far more flexible, up to date and intelligent systems.

Faster data rates achieved through 3G allow for more data heavy applications such as the real time transfer of video, used in applications such security allowing the remote streaming of camera footage to remote locations. Another major advantage of leveraging the cellular networks as a networking medium is the ability to rapidly deploy new devices, allowing you to quickly gain remote access to them without the need for lengthy, time consuming and potentially disruptive laying of cable.
