Q. How scalable is Embitel’s IoT gateway solution?
Horizontal scaling involves adding more gateways to the existing network. These gateways can be interconnected using a common communication bus without affecting the existing network of gateways.
Vertical scaling involves adding more resources such as memory, device software, OS, hardware and API’s to the gateway.
Q. How cost effective is it to implement IoT solutions?
Organizations who have adopted IoT framework, in the right spirit, have demonstrated improvements in the operational efficiency and ROI.
From IoT enabled solar energy trackers, enterprise battery management systems leveraging predictive maintenance to IoT enabled industrial automation, the industrial uses cases of IoT implementations are plenty.
Q. Can you help us connect our ZigBee device to the cloud?
Q. How do you ensure the security of the IoT systems during the data exchange?
Q. What can be done if an IoT gateway loses connection to the cloud?
Q. Can we connect our existing analytics application to the data collected from the IoT gateways?
Q. What are the minimum hardware requirements to develop an IoT project?
Q. How do you ensure the hardware security?
TPM is a chip for encrypting the data that can be installed at the endpoint. The TEE includes an API, a kernel, and a trusted OS that runs the security check along with the usual OS.
Q. What devices can be connected using industrial IoT solution?
A business can connect HVAC System, Energy Distribution System (Smart Grids), Biometric System, Alarm System, Fire Control, Sensors, or Actuators etc. with the system.
Q. Where is the data collected from the IoT Gateways stored?
We can store the data either in the SQL database or the NoSQL database, based on the requirement.
Q. Do you also develop IoT gateway devices?
We conduct IoT design workshops with our IoT consultants for our customers to analyze their requirement and plan out a customized and cost-efficient architecture design.
Q. Build or Buy- Which is the best IoT gateway development approach that I should choose for my business?
Read this blog where we list down key parameters to consider for resolving your “Build vs buy” dilemma.
The following table analyses build vs buy strategy for IoT gateway development, based on key business parameters:
|Key Considerations||Off-the-Shelf||Custom Developed IoT Gateway|
|Time To Market||Less, as the product is ready to be deployed||More, as it needs to meet all the customization requirement|
|Degree of ownership ( IP Rights)||Is majorly with the IoT solution provider||You are the owner of the final product design|
|Support and Maintenance||As per the terms and conditions of IoT Gateway Vendor||Can be negotiated and tailor-made before signing the contract.|
|Prototype Development||Best suited for prototype development using standard hardware and software components||Not feasible due to high cost per unit.|
|Competitive advantage||Lesser time to market.||Freedom to add features you like
Include and pay only for the features that you need.
That said, each of the two IoT gateway development approaches have their own benefits and limitations. The decision regarding choosing a build vs buy IoT gateway solution depends mainly on your business goals.
