LILEE Systems has released its new platform for mobile and fixed distributed enterprises, such as bus fleets and retail franchises, which includes multiple first-to-market capabilities. LILEEs TransAir STS series gateways and T-Cloud platform enable organizations to more rapidly and reliably network, track, control and interact with their mobile and fixed assets to improve operations and reduce costs.
LILEE STS gateways offer multiple wired and wireless connectivity options and are installed In distributed assets, such as a bus or retail store. They include an onboard application engine that enables enterprise applications to run in a fog-computing architecture; i.e., integrating on-site and in-cloud computing. LILEE T-Cloud is a cloud-based solution that provides network management, auto provisioning and the ability for third-party software providers to integrate with STS gateways. Connection to T-Cloud, via LTE-A, Wi-Fi or Ethernet, allows operators continuous remote access to IoT data, analytics, and the ability to perform critical asset management functions including zero-touch on-board application upgrades and configuration.
In an example use case for a corporate shuttle fleet, the STS gateway can support intelligent, coordinated incident response. If there is a situation onboard, the driver can press an alert button to notify the district office via a tablet connected through Wi-Fi or a physical button on the vehicle connected through the digital I/O. An application running on the onboard processor can then activate a network video recorder (NVR) connected to the application engine to stream IP camera data via LTE-A broadband to the district dispatcher for assessment. If the local police department is dispatched, the GPS on the STS provides location data for responders.
“A new generation of intelligent connectivity, provisioning, and management solutions are needed to drive adoption of IoT into a wider range of markets, such as first responders, retail, and smart cities,” said Vikrant Gandhi, industry director of Information & Communication Technologies (ICT) at Frost & Sullivan. “For distributed enterprises to take maximum advantage of IoT, it is critical to have in place highly reliable, high-bandwidth mobile connectivity in a dramatically smaller form factor, combined with the flexibility to perform diagnostics and analytics anywhere decision makers want such as on-site or at a central location. LILEEs new STS series of fog-computing gateways achieve this goal and set a new standard for value in the distributed enterprise.”
