Simplifying the interface between LPWAN-connected sensors and IoT applications

With the fragmentation of IoT technologies and applications, managing data exposure is challenging

Data is at the core of any IoT use case. Making sense of the data sent by IoT sensors and transform it into a business insight that can help people and companies create value, optimize operations, save lives etc. is the ultimate goal. However, with the fragmentation of the IoT communication technologies, protocols, standards and applications, it has never been more difficult to integrate data in a painless way with the business applications.

ThingPark X facilitates the transformation of sensor data into business insights  for consumers of IoT services

Data flow management

Data needs to be transformed into relevant business information. ThingPark X provides data processing and abstraction layers to ease the consumption of the data by third party applications

  • Device payload decoders/drivers for easy integration with business apps
  • IoT protocol translation for Modbus, ZCL and 6LoWPAN to transport them through LoRaWAN
  • Queuing management with Kafka to avoid data loss in case of problem
  • Analytics and process management with optimisation and predictive maintenance algorithms
