Machine to Machine (M2M) Management Platform
At Virtua we have developed M2M management platform that enables fleet management from a few dozen to a few 10 thousand M2M devices for the needs of a concrete project and one pilot solution.
The system is based on the Python code, it runs on a cloud server, and for being able to work properly needs embedded devices (BeegleBone or Raspberry Pi) and Mikrotik router. With a few modifications, connections could be provided from a single embedded device.
When making M2M solutions we usually find out that the management of the fleet, once on the ground, is actually the greatest challenge.
The system currently supports the following functionalities:
- provisioning device where the M2M device can be adjusted to optional settings,
- managing the device via API interfaces
- synchronisation of data tables on the device (such as price lists, operation parameters, etc.)
- The simple ‘Digital sinage’ module is available for embedded devices with video port, which is suitable when devices are used in places where we can simultaneously use them for promotion purposes as well.
