Differences between industrial class and SOHO class for Router / Modem

Category : FAQ, Products, Solutions, Technologies, Wireless M2M

As we know, the devices mainly cover three classes, that is SOHO class, Industrial class and Military class.  Each class has its own application requirement. The SOHO class modem and router don’t meet the requirements of the industrial environment and standard entirely because of it is designed for office automation. Mainly differences are the below,

1. Control
The SOHO class is simple design for internet use. People no need control it very often.
The industrial class is designed mainly for industry applications. People need control it quite often, even 7*24 hours.

2. Stable, reliable and robust
SOHO class features are simply. It is mainly used for internet surfing, which is installed in house. People can check and assist it in time. With cost requirement, SOHO class design and development will not care too much for the stability and reliability. The industrial class cares the stability and reliability very much because it’s mainly installed under people’ touch. In another world, it should be working for 7*24 hours without people assist. So the industrial class must have good reliability, recoverability, and maintainability in the production environment at the same time. It is a guarantee that it will not lead the collapse of applications, operating system even the network when any component failure occurs in a network system.

3. The security issues
Lots of fields exist inflammable, explosive or toxic gases inevitably in the process of industrial production, and there must have some certain explosion-proof technology for the intelligent devices and communication equipment which can ensure the safety of industrial field. It is much more practical to add explosion-proof and explosion-proof measures in the Ethernet system under the condition of current technology, namely the ignition energy which caused by the devices problem will not leak through increasing explosion-proof measures to the Ethernet field devices, which can ensure the safety of running system. For those dangerous situation where is no strict safety requirements, you can not consider complex explosion-proof measures.

The network safety of industrial system is another security issue must be considered at the industrial Ethernet applications. Industrial Ethernet can make the traditional three layers of the network system, namely, information management layer, process monitoring layer and field equipment layer, an organic whole, which make the faster data transfer, higher real-time and it can integrate with the Internet seamlessly, it realizes data sharing and improves the operational efficiency of the factory. But there is a series of network security problems at the same time, industrial network may under the threat of virus infection, hackers and illegal operation.

4. The vehicle power supply issues
The vehicle power supply refers to the cable connected to the field devices not only to transmit data signals, but also provide equipment working power supply on-site. The Ethernet hasn’t considered this issue from the design at the beginning, while there are a lot of bus power supply requirements on the industrial site. Because of the above problems, the ordinary commercial Ethernet cannot be applied to the control of industrial field directly. And the industrial Ethernet is produced to solve these problems.

 

5. Features and performance
The industrial class owns much more features and SOHO class, such as connection alive monitor and keeping, Dual Sim connection, multi-line redundancy, GPS, Serial ports, VPN networks, high gain and special antenna replacement, etc.

IoT Applications

Category : Technologies, Worldwide Focus

According to Gartner, Inc. (a technology research and advisory corporation), there will be nearly 20.8 billion devices on the Internet of things by 2020. ABI Research estimates that more than 30 billion devices will be wirelessly connected to the Internet of things by 2020. As per a 2014 survey and study done by Pew Research Internet Project, a large majority of the technology experts and engaged Internet users who responded—83 percent—agreed with the notion that the Internet/Cloud of Things, embedded and wearable computing (and the corresponding dynamic systems) will have widespread and beneficial effects by 2025. As such, it is clear that the IoT will consist of a very large number of devices being connected to the Internet. In an active move to accommodate new and emerging technological innovation, the UK Government, in their 2015 budget, allocated £40,000,000 towards research into the Internet of things. The former British Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne, posited that the Internet of things is the next stage of the information revolution and referenced the inter-connectivity of everything from urban transport to medical devices to household appliances.

Integration with the Internet implies that devices will use an IP address as a unique identifier. However, due to thelimited address space of IPv4 (which allows for 4.3 billion unique addresses), objects in the IoT will have to use IPv6to accommodate the extremely large address space required. Objects in the IoT will not only be devices with sensory capabilities, but also provide actuation capabilities (e.g., bulbs or locks controlled over the Internet). To a large extent, the future of the Internet of things will not be possible without the support of IPv6; and consequently the global adoption of IPv6 in the coming years will be critical for the successful development of the IoT in the future.

The ability to network embedded devices with limited CPU, memory and power resources means that IoT finds applications in nearly every field. Such systems could be in charge of collecting information in settings ranging from natural ecosystems to buildings and factories, thereby finding applications in fields of environmental sensing and urban planning.

On the other hand, IoT systems could also be responsible for performing actions, not just sensing things. Intelligent shopping systems, for example, could monitor specific users’ purchasing habits in a store by tracking their specific mobile phones. These users could then be provided with special offers on their favorite products, or even location of items that they need, which their fridge has automatically conveyed to the phone. Additional examples of sensing and actuating are reflected in applications that deal with heat, electricity and energy management, as well as cruise-assisting transportation systems. Other applications that the Internet of things can provide is enabling extended home security features and home automation. The concept of an “Internet of living things” has been proposed to describe networks of biological sensorsthat could use cloud-based analyses to allow users to study DNA or other molecules.

However, the application of the IoT is not only restricted to these areas. Other specialized use cases of the IoT may also exist. An overview of some of the most prominent application areas is provided here. Based on the application domain, IoT products can be classified broadly into five different categories: smart wearable, smart home, smart city, smart environment, and smart enterprise. The IoT products and solutions in each of these markets have different characteristics.

IoT connectivity and M2M

Category : Technologies, Wireless M2M, Worldwide Focus

IoT Data SIMs

True IoT innovation which involves connectivity as part of its wider eco-system is likely to demand more than just a data SIM. And it’s here that we remind potential customers that IoT is inextricably linked to a user’s corporate network, and as such is a vital component to their operation and processes with all of the same security considerations and resilience required. The question we should be asking users is ‘what if these links are lost and how will this impact your business?’ Now factor in the challenges of failover, integration and cost implications and you can start to appreciate the real value that you should be placing on your connected solutions. View IoT communication in this way and it’s clear to see how connectivity solutions should not be viewed on price alone. The detail of ensuring the right type of data connectivity – local, global or roaming, fixed IP, secure networking, tailored control platform to monitor data usage in real-time, and the ability to manage multiple networks through one window – all of these points must be considered to ensure suitability for the lifespan of the application. And don’t forget that cellular may not always be the answer – perhaps other bearer services could be more relevant such as SIGFOX, NarrowBand IoT (NB-IoT) or LoRa – low power radio solutions, more suited to devices with minimal power availability and/or signal constraints.

Stack ‘em high but don’t sell them cheap
Reflecting on the above, you can now pose the question… sell SIMs on price and expect a price war in the future, or approach the market in a more consultative way – developing long-term relationships with your customers and own/monetise their entire IoT space. It is the latter that is going to create on-going value and recurring revenues, creating a ‘go-to’ relationship where you are delivering fully-wrapped IoT communication solutions with layers of added-value bolted on. So that is my call for your consideration. Marketing M2M and IoT solutions where you become an integral part of a customer’s infrastructure is, to us, the way forward. Partnering with Managed Services Providers such as Wireless Logic will give you confidence to market higher end-to-end solutions that will, longer-term, create recurring income and importantly, total credibility with your own customers as you provide the all-important communications platforms. And I stress the word ‘partnering’ as you can’t be expected to impart every aspect of the knowledge bank now expected from an IoT comms provider. In an ever-evolving market, technologies, platforms, tariffs and bearer services are all changing, regularly. Choose your IoT partner carefully. Whether you use them as a ‘white label’ service or co-brand the pitch, you simply must ensure that you are fully armed with the right skills, knowledge base and key personnel to design, brief, implement and manage – for the entire duration of the project.

Outside the box opportunities
Finally, as you think about future approaches, I would urge you to open your mind to the growing opportunities. Yes, we know vehicle and asset tracking are bread and butter verticals, but that’s only the beginning. Think healthcare, security, Usage-based Insurance (UBI) and manufacturing. In fact, just stop and look around you and consider how many opportunities there are – B2B and consumer, it’s mind-blowing. Also consider the monetisation – so many applications are starting to utilise high-bandwidth 3G/4G solutions which generate multi-Gb usage. It all adds up. Also think about your core activities – we are seeing an unprecedented uplift in enterprise solutions – 3G/4G back-up to ADSL, and similar solutions for fast set-up remote locations. Each and every application gives you scope to earn, and own more of your client’s communication space. And get to know more about what your customers do outside your main topics of normal conversation. By understanding more about their business processes and activities, you may identify areas for existing and future connectivity which are not managed by your day-to-day contacts. Don’t expect joined-up thinking where IoT communications is concerned within a customer! At Wireless Logic we are developing support services to enable voice resellers, unified comms providers and related service specialists to market best-in-class M2M/IoT connectivity solutions with confidence. I repeat again… stop thinking quick, dirty and low-value SIMs and start on your journey of new, value-added and entirely sticky IoT communications offerings. You will be delivering solutions that will be essential to the well-being and operational efficiencies of your customers. DON’T UNDERSELL YOURSELVES.
