The main aim of Internet of Things (IoT) is a more efficient economy by automating processes and eliminating human influence

In IoT things are physical world (physical things) or digital world (virtual items) objects that can be identified and integrated into a communication network. Things have related information, which can be static or dynamic.

Physical things exist in the physical world, and can be measured, activated and turned on. Examples of physical things include the environment, industrial robots, goods and electrical equipment.

Virtual things exist in the world of information and can be stored and managed. Examples of virtual items include multimedia content and applications software.

We focus on the solutions in the following segments

Annette IoT for industry

Annette IoT platform provides all the necessary functionality for making development projects in the areas of production and services using Internet technology of things (IoT). The implementation of IoT technologies in industrial production changes the form and essence of the production process. With implementation of automation using IoT technology, production capacity and the products they produce can be linked via data networks. This allows you to separate sections of the production lines to communicate with each other in real time, creating a single production process is controlled based on the digital image of the product and its interaction with information systems of production.

Remote control of production lines
Creating a network for production data collection and processing, easy integration with SCADA MES level systems
Collecting operating time data of equipment. Automated planning predictive maintenance of equipment
Storage of production data, monitoring performance indicators, analysis and reporting
Resources planning for the production program
Analysis of anthropogenic threats. Process safety management

Annette IoT Smart City

Creating a smart city is a defining moment in the evolution of Internet technology things. Quite different technologies are combined in a large-scale multi-layered solutions.

Solutions to create a smart city based on the Annette IoT enable efficient use of urban infrastructure: the objects of public services; road infrastructure; intellectual stuffing connected units: meters, gauges, thereby making it possible to conduct real-time monitoring of the flow of water, gas and electricity. Inefficient use of natural resources will be the last to leave in the past, at the same time including the IoT solutions in housing processes, public transport and traffic management, waste cleaning, integration with public safety solutions, we can set new standards for comfortable urban life.

Security - General Concept

Safety at customers site

Annette Solutions leverages existing infrastructure safety of their customers with built-in hardware and software protection at the level of each device IoT c using TLS, and (AES128) authentication keys.

Data protection from unauthorized access

All communication between you and your customers protected by encryption using SSL (Secure Socket Layer), the same method is used by banks to carry out online transactions

Secure and Scalable infrastructure

Our solutions are designed to meet with the ISO 27001: 2013

Providing authentication system users

Centralized management of all access to the system, with a mandatory authentication using passwords. Full audit and traceability of all user actions

User permissions control

After user authentication actions are limited to products for which they are responsible, and the level of access appropriate to their roles

Detailed policy management

Deployment on Annette security services customer sites provide detailed policy control access of end users to meet the audit requirements and regulatory compliance

Communication media - ad hoc network

A mesh network is a network topology in which each node relays data for the network. All mesh nodes cooperate in the distribution of data in the network.

Mesh networks can relay messages using either a flooding technique or a routing technique. With routing, the message is propagated along a path by hopping from node to node until it reaches its destination. To ensure all its paths’ availability, the network must allow for continuous connections and must reconfigure itself around broken paths, using self-healing algorithms such as Shortest Path Bridging. Self-healing allows a routing-based network to operate when a node breaks down or when a connection becomes unreliable. As a result, the network is typically quite reliable, as there is often more than one path between a source and a destination in the network.

Intelligence of Network

It’s a key feature of wireless mesh network. “Intelligence” means that the network lacks the complexities of infrastructure setup and administration, enabling devices to create and join networks “on the fly” – anywhere, anytime

Self-healing and self-adaptation

Once the network is enabled and begins to function, each device automatically detects the status of its neighbors and its role in the overall topology. Therefore, in case of failure of one of the nodes, the network is able to reroute data – that is, to redefine routes automatically

Fast deployment at reasonable cost

Deploying Mesh network does not require expensive infrastructure and cabling. In addition, due to the self-healing and self-adaptation – this network is economical in operation
