IoT Architecture Stages

We have mastered the 4 main stages of IoT Architecture evident in our 90+% IoT customer satisfaction rating.

Stage 1 - Sensors & Actuators

Sensors and actuators are the critical hardware components that drive your IoT application fueling it with accurate, credible data.

Our team of engineers leveraging myriad sensor technology such as accelerometers, humidity sensors, gyroscopes, temperature sensors, capacitive touch sensors, microphones, optical sensors, digital compasses, electromagnetic field sensors, liquid level indicators, pressure sensors, proximity detectors, imaging sensors, and multi-component sensor technology such as IMUs, MEMS sensors, and system-in-package (SiP) sensor modules.

Our IoT systems integrators and other members of our engineering teams have experience working with custom IoT sensor development with microcontrollers ESP32, ESP8266, and other technologies for custom IoT solutions. Our team brings experience with a growing list of manufacturers such as FIBARO, AEOTec, and  other Z-Wave-compatible sensor device companies.

Working with protocols such as Z-Wave, WiFi, and Bluetooth (BLE), our engineers design how your IoT device takes data from stage 1 to stage 2 where interpretation of the incoming data begins.

Stage 2 - Gateways

Gateway technology such as Raspberry Pi, Orange Pi, CyberTAN ZE 250, Compulab MintBox Mini 2 Pro, Advantech UTX-311, and Data Acquisition Systems (DAS) digest, digitize, and aggregate incoming data.

Our developers and engineers select and integrate technologies that  optimize your product’s gateway architecture. Whether your project is to overhaul and re-energize legacy devices or to create the latest new thing in next-gen devices for the Internet of Things (IoT), our team defines and delivers the inter-working components for networking, managing data storage, reporting edge analytics, and enabling secure data transfer between the cloud and devices.

Our gateway design and implementation experience includes solutions without IoT operating systems and with IoT operating systems and embedded environments such a Raspbian, Wind River, Linux, OSMC, Ubuntu Core, and more.

Stage 3 - Edge IT

While architecting the edge computing platform for your IoT project, our engineers consider how to optimize the solution to leverage the best of the robust and effective secure storage and processing capabilities of the cloud and the nimbleness of data collection and localized processing of your device. Our multi-disciplinary team innovates IoT edge solutions to reduce or eliminate latency between IoT devices and the cloud as well as to harden the device and data against security breaches.

The local edge processing architecture handles the immense quantity and diversity of data acquired by the device’s sensors and manages the interpretation of that data locally resulting in faster hardware reactions and real-time alerts that make your IoT application useful to its end users.

The critical edge IT components deliver the complex event processing and machine learning that bring your embedded application to life while simultaneously supporting critical user-oriented and product support functions such as data storage and management. Whether your solution requires an application running directly on the edge utilizing containerized app models or allows for a decentralized architecture, our engineers optimize each component and the integration of the components.

Stage 4 - Cloud

The data center, usually cloud-based, is key and the final stage of IoT architecture. Storage of sensor data from IoT devices enables deeper analytics for feedback on device and application performance as well as opportunities for new functionality or even new products. Often, an applications data or aggregated set of its data are commingled with community sensor data which amplifies opportunities for improvements, innovations, and inventions.

During the cloud or data storage architecture stage, the skills of both IT and operational technology (OT) professionals are vital. It is in this sometimes incredibly large amalgam of data that superior analytical skills in both the digital and real worlds produce insight and support decision-making by both humans and the machine-learning devices.

The architecture of the data storage and design of analytical functions are what assure that accurate, high quality information is fed back to the physical world. Use of probabilistic models for error detection and recovery, heuristics, and game theory are often desired data manipulations and analytic processes. Architecture based on these requirements early in the cloud data storage design reduces costs and maximizes opportunities. Applications for complex cloud data storage architectures include smart disaster  evaluation and recovery, municipal monitoring and control, and medical monitoring for healthcare patients.
