Whether in deploying, hosting or maintaining your connected solutions in operational condition, Rtone delivers support to upgrade skills and increase autonomy in managing your new IoT business.
Deploying and hosting your connected solutions and maintaining them in operational condition,
Rtone helps to guarantee maximum availability.
The Rtone team has always been aware that common issues on projects involve fleets of connected objects. To reduce costs and improve system reliability, the Cloud & Mobile team evaluated, tested and implemented a range of IoT platform solutions and approaches with the aim of delivering a simple, flexible, open and non-proprietary solution for each line of business.
Because each business brings its own constraints and an overly complex solution will make adaptations very costly
By their nature, IoT projects are innovative projects that need to be operational as quickly as possible so that their relevance can be assessed. It follows that they need to be agile. The solution must allow the first business line applications to be developed very quickly. But the software base must be able to support growth right up to Big Data, without impairing the initial technological choices in the short, medium or long term.
Because IoT systems live and change over time, it is essential for the technology base to be durable and widely adopted so that skilled resources are easy to find and there is no dependency on the choices of a single company.
The solution must guarantee maximum independence from the infrastructure on which it is based, enabling the operator to freely choose and change the hosting solution selected from the IaaS and PaaS Cloud solutions on the market.
IoT fleet software solution
Bearing these principles in mind, Rtone has defined its IoT fleet management software offer using a set of open-source technologies we have mastered, which are widely used and carefully chosen to support all projects, from proof of concept to the management of large fleets of connected objects. As a custom design platform, this solution is a base delivering standard services:
- User management (account creation, roles, security etc.)
- Device management (administration, provisioning, etc.)
- Firmware management (storage, version control, OTA or other updates etc.)
- Data collection using multiple communication protocols (web services, MQTT, Sigfox, LoRa etc.)
- Real-time visualisation and dashboarding
- Interoperability: all standard services are accessible via a documented web services API for maximum interoperability.
We deploy the solution on your behalf and work with you to develop your custom apps. Rtone can also take charge of the hosting and maintenance part in SaaS (Software as a Service) mode, if you wish, with no obligation and with the option of resuming control at any point.
All of our clients benefit from our services in a variety of sectors: Smart Cities, Smart grid, home automation, management of working conditions, etc.
The business model is simple and clear: you pay for the deployment of your platform, any custom development and your hosting – and that’s all.
