Deploying IOT platform
Where an IOT platform can be put to use
Typical IOT software platform, gateway devices and integrated sensors can be deployed across various industries. Green house farming technology, smart building, industrial asset tracking, supply chain cargo tracking and monitoring, equipment anti-theft monitoring, visitor and employee tracking at offices and logistics yards, mobile towers, goods sent for repair, onsite servicing etc… to name a few.

Components of an IOT platform
An IOT platform comprises of a server based content management solution, business analytics software, machine learning frameworks, IOT sensors, data access points, IOT gateway and audit tools.
Deploying an on premise IOT platform
Provide us with the layout diagram of your office building, logistics yards or agricultural land or shop floor and our engineers will be able to ascertain the reports, alerts, deep analytics opportunities, servers, access points and IOT sensors.
Benefits of deploying IOT platform
The benefits of deploying are many and the savings can be in millions of dollars through reduced maintenance, improved efficiency, remote monitoring and better deployment of manpower. A few are stated below
- Monitoring location, environment for safety and compliance in food industry
- Understand the environment and operating conditions in a smart agri farm
- Monitoring the humidity and temperature in a cold chain environment
- In transit cargo theft protection technology
- Reducing the cost of operations through automation and control
- Predictive business analytics – understand patters in temperature, usage, potential failures
- Ensure uptime of facilities and equipment
- Monitoring of heritage structures, tunnels, buildings
- Track and monitor objects to for resource management, preventing theft
- Understanding usage patters of equipment etc to help maintenance, spares inventory
Active RFID sensors and the uses
The industrial IOT sensors are compact sized electronic devices which have capabilities to capture environment centric information such as temperature, ambient light, humidity, vibration, shock, pH levels, carbon dioxide levels etc. The data is transmitted without wireless sensor technology to a RipplesIOT platform. Typical Active RFID sensors have a 10 year battery life / solar powered and, can be easily deployed without modifying equipment of infrastructure to be monitored. For people tracking, the slim sensors can be part of the identification tag.
Data security on an IOT platform
Deploying IOT platform is deployed on premise internal servers for security and scalability. The data is encrypted and the transmitted data are usually in numerals ; which would not make any sense to hackers.
Life of IOT sensor
Typical IOT sensors we deploy are highly proven ; comes with a battery life of 5+ years (thats right) to ensure low maintenance costs and total cost of ownership. They are manufactured by innovative companies in Europe ; patented for many unique capabilities, and are being used by deployed in thousands by corporations such as PostNL, Lafarge, Saint-globain, EADS, Evian etc.
