IoT Application

MobileStack has developed IoT-device, edge & cloud software stacks that are used by IoT device developers to quickly develop an IoT-solution using available software pieces and create complete IoT-sensor enabled Connected-Intelligence Solution in a cost-effective manner with faster time-to-market. Refer to our blog article Three software stacks for IoT solution for more details.

IoT Application

Different connectivity options of Bluetooth, WiFi and cellular connections are used as connection-option based on IoT device rqmts. We offer MQTT based messaging option for sending and receiving IoT data/control information between device & Cloud. Cloud-managed IoT-Gateway & Edge can be deployed to collect data for IoT-device and process it using AI and ML technologies. Consolidated information from Edge/IoT-GW device can be sent to IoT-Cloud application for processing, dashboard based visualization and operational control via Web & Mobile application.

MobileStack provides comprehensive IoT cloud technology components for integration into customer IoT solution to create a solution and deploy it for field trial and test the market. As IoT device company gains market share, Mobilestack helps clients scale their solutions with high-availability, redundancy and load-balancing functions to scale their own IoT end-to-end solution. Mobilestack offers DevOps services for IoT-Solution life-cycle management.

For an IoT startup, this could become a “key differtiator” in initial stages of IoT device development as they try to gain traction in the market-place. We hope to work with clients as a partner in this IoT development life-cycle. As client's business grows, we will continue to evolve with them to grow their solution to a “global” scale.

IoT Prototype
IoT Prototype

A Prototype is a first iteration of product to demonstrate business viability, user-desirability and technical-feasibility. IoT Prototype is an important step in building confidence in proposed IoT solution and ensure that proposed IoT solution shall serve business needs. Using pre-built IoT software components, MobileStack can quickly build an IoT PoC solution that can be used by client for market trial/RoI evaluation.

For IoT customers in different vertical markets, MobileStack offers IoT Proof of Concept development services to provide an early assessment of business benefits before investing money for full-solution development. IoT POC/trial provides an important first step in evaluation of IoT solution benefits, training on proposed solution to evaluate operational impacts, RoI assessment and confidence of going forward with execution phase of IoT solution project.

IoT Solution Development

Companies are launching IoT initiatives where technology promises to address real business problems. Some of those companies have found success with IoT in a relatively short period of time. Others are still in the planning or exploration stage. IoT holds promise in operational efficiency, identifying new business opportunities, and improved customer experience. It is a technology concept that both serves and connects the enterprise and consumer markets.

According to McKinsey & Co, the merging of the physical and digital worlds via IoT could generate up to $11.1 trillion a year in economic value by 2025. IoT solution creates opportunities to reshape many industries.

What is involved in IoT Solution development?

Unfortunately, building IoT application could be challenging. IoT technology is evolving very fast and to keep up with all new innovation in IoT space is a daunting task for a business looking to deploy a solution. Most IoT solutions are a complex integration of IoT devices, connectivity solution, edge and cloud solution, security, MNO-services, machine learning, analytics and mobile applications. Different vertical industries have industry vertical specific solution.

Enterprise-MNO Relationship Gap
Complex IoT ecosystem

Enterprise faces many cellular-IoT issues. Cellular-IoT requires MNO-relationship management and strategy which adds complexity and operational issues. Most MNOs want exclusive relationship with an Enterprise which is not a desirable long-term strategic option for Enterprise. Enterprise relationship with MNO is not always a smooth experience despite best effort of MNO and Enterprise to make this marriage successful. One option to close Enterprise-MNO relationship gap is to use Managed MNO Services to manage MNO relationship and develop multi-MNO solution.

Many industry verticals require special solutions which are not available from MNO. For example- eSIM technology was created by Telematics Industry by partnering with GSMA to solve MNO-mobility issues as vehicles change ownership or country of usage.

IoT solution development requires use of several standards

Hardware standards

Cloud standards & Open Source software

Security standards

Industry standards

Data standards

Privacy standards

Regulatory standards

To build an IoT solution

To build an IoT solution, following 6 steps are used:

Identify and analyze customer problem

Figure out what solution requirements will best solve customer problem

Identify and build a PoC for early feedback from customer

Architect the solution

Build the solution

Deploy the solution

IoT Security

IoT Security is extremely important. Without IoT security, Solution will not be deployed regardless of business value that it creates. IoT security framework needs to be considered as an end-to-end solution which makes sure that no vulnerable access or link can be exploited. Security must be designed in a way that system usability is not compromised. This is not an east art to master. Security is a collaborative and team effort from special people who focus on security aspect only. In some cases, over engineering is done in the name of security without considering the need of it and grows cost of project. So, this is a balancing act as well.

IoT Analytics

IoT analytics is term for a set of technological and analytical tools and techniques specifically designed to help clients extract information from massive data. IoT analytics is designed to make official statistical data readily categorized and available via the users web browser.

IoT Device Integration Service

IoT Device Integration Service

A lot of startups and new businesses are creating new IoT devices for different vertical markets. While they have the expertise in developing an IoT device for a specific vertical market of application, developing an end-to-end sensor-enabled connected-intelligence solution using edge/GW, cloud, analytics, web/mobile application software components is a daunting task.

IoT Device

MobileStack acts as a partner to IoT device developer in creating an end-to-end solution for faster path to market trials. MobileStack has a pre-build IoT-Edge/GW, Cloud software components which can be used to integrate with IoT device developed client and create a market trial solution. When IoT device is partner is ready for scalable, redundant and load-balanced production-ready IoT solution/product launch, MobileStack can help IoT device partner with development of such a solution.
