May 8, 2014. ADLINK Technology, a provider of cloud-based services, intelligent gateways, and embedded building blocks for edge devices that enable the Internet of Things (IoT), today announced it is utilizing a machine-to-machine (M2M) software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution from Gemalto, a global leader in digital security, to provide remote system monitoring and real-time maintenance for connected devices. ADLINK embedded systems are used to manage and control business processes and assets such as medical and industrial automation equipment, digital signage, communications infrastructure, and transportation networks.
Gemalto’s SensorLogic Agent and Application Enablement Platform are being used by ADLINK to optimize and simplify the control and monitoring of ADLINK’s customer application deployments. ADLINK's Smart Embedded Management Agent (SEMA) Cloud device-to-cloud offering allows customers to continuously monitor their devices and respond immediately to critical situations. Data collected by the SEMA monitoring agent—including CPU temperature, system restart information, and total operating time—is then transferred to the cloud. A web-based dashboard can be securely accessed from anywhere, at any time, allowing users to immediately assess performance levels and handle system management tasks remotely.
“The flexible Gemalto solution is ideally suited to serve our wide range of embedded solution customers across many different vertical markets without requiring a dedicated software stack for each application,” said Dirk Finstel, general manager of ADLINK’s EMEA region. “Gemalto’s strong technical support helped us to quickly port SEMA Cloud to ADLINK devices for an accelerated launch and gives us the ability to scale up as business and technology needs expand.”
“ADLINK’s device-to-cloud strategy is a new model for all critical industrial businesses, demonstrating the impact and benefits of M2M on both instant data collection and management,” said Laetitia Jay, vice president of M2M Solutions and Services at Gemalto. “The solution sets a benchmark for easy to deploy M2M services, offering new revenue streams for service providers, adding value for customers, and optimizing operations with improved Edge-to-Enterprise communications.”
