IP-enabling improves enterprise profitability and efficient use of deployed devices
Many manufacturers have products that have reliably deployed for years, but lack remote control capability. Perhaps you have a SCADA device or process control equipment that is locally managed. Wouldn’t you like to utilize the software that you have already developed and just “drop in” the Internet connectivity solution?
A total product redesign is not necessary, thanks to Connect One’s remotely updateable Internet-enabling solutions. Connect One enables you to use any host processor and your current software in order to embed Internet communication capability.
Deployed products can easily be retrofitted with IP-enabling modules that bring your existing designs into the 21st century. For example, NetVMI in Sao Paolo, Brazil, installs industrial-grade level instrumentation for monitoring the consumption and refill levels of storage tanks used in the petrochemical industry. They offer a Web-based vendor-managed inventory solution named I-Gate in which their hardware and management software integrate remote inventory management data into corporate Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems. By using iChip to provide real-time inventory data via the Web, NetVMI improves the customer/supplier relationship and provides superior supply chain management.
“It would have been impossible for us to develop iGate without Connect One. They made it very easy for us to integrate Internet communication into our gateway.”
– Luiz Fernando Ribeiro Atolini, Commercial Director, NetVMI
