Many ‘Internet of Things’ devices -we call these ‘Remote Assets’ like e.g. machines and vehicles- already generate a lot of ‘machine data’.
In many cases these devices have built-in Ethernet, serial, CANbus or MODbus interfaces.
But how do we connect these devices in a secure way to a central cloud platform?
E.g. when they are located behind a firewall or in the middle of nowhere?
And what if we need remote access to these devices?
Introducing Linxs|1 ...
Linxs|1 is a small and weatherproof mobile router with a built-in cellular modem, Wi-Fi and Ethernet and runs the rock-solid Linux OS.
When connected to a 'remote asset', Linxs|1 will automatically build a secure VPN tunnel to a central cloud platform.
Either via 4G/LTE, Wi-Fi or Ethernet, dependant on the availability of the different types of networks.
Linxs|1 supports fail-over and can switch automatically from e.g. Ethernet to 4G/LTE in case this network type is no longer available.
Linxs|1 can also connect to other interfaces -e.g. serial port- and already pre-process certain data on-site.
With Linxs|1 it is also possible to convert e.g. machine data and send it in the right format to any cloud platform.
Because Linxs|1 is so flexible, we call it our 'Swiss knife for the IoT era'.
But there is More!
Linxs|1 also supports 3rd Party “Edge” applications.
And advanced "SD-WAN" functionalities like e.g. IP-MPLS, fail-over, ... .
Linxs|1 comes with 1 private IP-address in case remote access to Linxs|1 -or the devices connected to Linxs|1- is required.
Every Linxs|1 is also bundled with our 4G/LTE LinxSIM card which gives you borderless 4G/LTE data access throughout Europe (EU28).
Via the ‘Linxs Device Management Platform’ you can manage your (group of) Linxs|1 device(s), activate or deactivate devices, check data usage, … .
(Linxs|1 is our standard mobile router offering;
we do offer other versions of the Linxs hardware based upon specific use cases and requirements.)
