Multi-Tech Systems, the M2M technology provider, and ILS Technology, a Telit company, have collaborated on making Multi-Tech’s MultiConnect open communications gateway (OCG) “deviceWISE Ready” by embedding the deviceWISE agent directly into the OCG firmware.
This new integrated offering further reduces the risk, time-to-market, complexity and cost of deploying complete end-to-end M2M solutions.
"The deployment of M2M applications doesn't need to be complex", said Rod Landers, CEO of Multi-Tech. “Multi-Tech and ILS are partnering to make it easier for people to deploy their M2M applications on the deviceWISE platform. Our goal is to make this truly plug and play and we will continue to expand our offerings through working with other companies toward similar implementations.”
deviceWISE is a ready-to-use, off-the-shelf cloud platform to connect enterprise IT systems to the devices and machines on which businesses depend. With this deviceWISE Ready OCG it is easy to monitor remote devices without the need for months of complex programming or development. Plus, it offers unparalleled security to protect company and customer data in transit, stored in the Cloud and on the back end, according to the company.
“Multi-Tech is a valued ecosystem partner of ILS Technology and Telit. Our customers have been relying on Multi-Tech gateways for M2M and IoT deployments across different industries and markets for years,” said Fred Yentz, president and CEO of ILS Technology. “Having deviseWISE integrated on the OCG gateway simplifies the entire process – from initial technical evaluations to large scale commercialisation.”
The MultiConnect OCG open communications gateway comprises an open Linux development environment and a fully certified hardware platform that includes multiple interfaces (serial, USB, Ethernet and SD card) and internal peripherals (including a cellular modem and a GPS receiver) in one application-ready end user solution.
The MultiConnect OCG brings together a cellular hardware development environment, built around wireless M2M modules from Telit, and Multi-Tech’s CoreCDP, a distribution version of the Linux operating system and complete Linux build environment, to create custom applications in a very short period of time. The Multi-Tech MultiConnect OCG provides a flexible, quick and cost-effective way to bring your solution to market.
The deviceWISE Application Enablement Platform (AEP) delivers standards-based Cloud connectivity and integration across any remote device, any network and any enterprise application in the back office. The developer-friendly platform is preferred among leading organizations – large and small – that rely on mission-critical connectivity, security, scalability and carrier-grade performance.
