Internet is Changing Many Industries, From Medicine to Asset Management & More!
TEKenable focus on the business benefits that are real and significant of using IoT. We provide an end to end solution from devices to automation as a one stop shop and we will only talk about the deep technical details if you want us to.
Internet of Things (IoT) has, like most technologies at one time or another been hyped to death. Any search engine will happily quote stats on the number of billions of devices connected, the hockey stick growth of IoT and innumerable articles packed with impenetrable acronyms speak about the technology.
Compounding the confusion is that the market is very fragmented so businesses in search of the promised benefits can find themselves having to deal with multiple vendors and incompatible systems.
The sensors need a way to securely send the measurements that they collect to a system for processing, so they need communications. Depending on how much data the sensors will send, how often they send it and the services available where they will be operating we select a communications method.
A mix of communications technologies may be needed but we will advise on that if needed. We are partnered with Vodafone which is a premier communications provider with a global reach for communications.
The measurements that come from your sensors will be securely held in the Microsoft Azure cloud. We can keep these for as long or as a short a time as you need. We can store the measurements in multiple types of containers allowing them to be used in lots of different ways including making the data set available to other systems you may wish to be able to access it.
Measurements, data, are in individually interesting but real power comes from turning them into Information. Our IoT platform takes the raw data and creates Information. Information is usually seen as dashboards, visualizations of factories or buildings etc that can be viewed and interacted with, trends and forecasts. We can monitor the level of stress placed on vehicles and suggest maintenance intervals based on the level of use and abuse for example.
Information can be further processed on the TEKenable IoT platform to give Actionable Insight. Our Analytics Engine can detect conditions needing immediate action in real time and raise the alarm and using AI we can predict impending problems and detect hidden issues in time to prevent the problem having a negative impact.
Finally, Actionable Insight can be used to automatically take actions as wide and various as turning down the air conditioning in an empty meeting room, alerting a site manager to a potential safety hazard, opening a maintenance ticket in a support system and calling a medical specialist for an ill patient. Automated responses to observed conditions all defined by a sophisticated rules engine that can be configured and access other systems/data sets to make decisions.
TEKenable is working with the Irish Health Service (HSE) as part of the Digital Health Leadership Steering/Strategy Group (DHLSG) and the National Digital Healthcare Innovation Centre.
Our ISO13485 and IEC60304 certifications (Software as a Medical Device) also enables us to deliver the necessary software compliant to European and US regulations.
In essence we collect data that allows you to make business decisions on your estates to Retain, Release or Refurbish.
Smart Asset Management
The objective is to preserve the asset’s value for the owner and ensure continuous operation for the user of the asset.
Large commercial generators for example do not work well under light loads and can actually be damaged by them. Motorcycles can be dropped into their side or stolen and specialist tanks used in Oil and Gas are often misplaced high value assets. We have even seen expenditure on wheelchairs in hospitals being higher than necessary through lack of tracking!
