IoTize™ minimizes the expertise, effort, time and risks associated with integrating IoT connectivity in your existing or new system designs.
First, IoTize wireless modules combine a co-processor with radio communication and security technologies. Our co-processor manages communications with the processor / microcontroller in your system via its debug port or a system bus. You simply configure the IoTize wireless module with the location and access parameters for the variables that you are interested in.
IoTize is also a complete infrastructure for getting data to an information appliance such as a smartphone, or to a Cloud IoT service platform. The complete IoTize solution provides everything you need:
- to develop smartphone-based user interfaces for your system
- to connect the system to a LAN/WAN
- to transfer data from your system to a Cloud IoT service platform
- to secure data and access to your system
IoTize encapsulates all of the features and technologies for these so that adding connectivity requires little expertise and no changes to the native hardware or software of your system.
Plug It In
IoTize TapNLink wireless modules plug directly into system processor’s debug port to add connectivity without modifying the system's native hardware or software. If your system can't be deployed with an open debug port, IoTize offers the same functionality on any two GPIOs of your system processor with our S3P protocol. The TapNLink module's co-processor non-intrusively monitors and writes the addresses that you've configured.
IoTize TapNPass wireless modules connect directly into a system bus via RS232, RS485, USB, CAN* or Ethernet* ports. The TapNPass module's co-processor monitors and writes only to memory addresses that are accessible via the system bus.
In addition to its co-processor, IoTize wireless modules implement one or more radio interfaces and security features. Data access in the target system, access restrictions, communication and security features are all implemented via a simple configuration of the module. Configuring a module includes specifying the target, the data to be monitored/written, access rights, and security or authentication features. The configuration process only takes a few minutes in IoTize Studio. This unique approach means that:
- no re-coding of your system's firmware is necessary
- no coding is required to implement any IoTize features
- no re-qualification of your system's native functionality is required
- no new expertise in wireless communications, security features or networking is required
Once it is configured, the IoTize radio module provides a bridge between your system and a smartphone or a WAN/LPWAN gateway via a variety of wireless communication interfaces. IoTize supports smartphone connectivity via Near Field Communication (NFC), Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), Bluetooth Classic and WiFi. IoTize supports WAN/LPWAN connection via WiFi and LoRa. IoTize is also fully compatible with any other wireless technologies including GSM, SigFox, WMBus, etc., thus enabling integration of systems into virtually any network infrastructure.
