BACE

More and more companies are realizing that collecting data with IoT adds value and can even lead to new future-proof business models. Recent developments and improvements in IoT technology have ensured that standard components are available and the step to implementing IoT is getting smaller. BACE is one of those components with which an IoT solution can be realized quickly and cost-effectively.

The problem

In the IoT chain, the link between the device in the field and the back end or application in the cloud is most likely to cause problems or fail. This link is often a partially wireless connection, where data travels over large distances and through systems that third parties operate. A lot of problems can occur here – from package loss and poor signal quality to security compromise and complete network access elimination due to expiring roaming agreements. There are protocol, timing, addressing, and other technical challenges. In addition to data transfer, this link needs to be able to transfer complete new firmware versions for “over-the-air” updating, patches, and encryption certificates.

BACE is an IoT building block that connects your assets to the cloud so you can continuously keep an eye on the performance of your assets and manage them remotely. BACE can be used as an add-on to your solution or can be integrated into your product. BACE is ready to deploy and can easily connect to most systems with its built-in protocols. The data from your assets is transferable to your Enterprise Platform via a RESTful API, or to customized dashboards.

We take care of every aspect of IoT connectivity so you can focus on your own value-adding services. This includes security, data transmission, device provisioning, data storage, wireless software updates, and real-time configuration synching.

  • With BACE, it is now possible to create the first version of the IoT solution in weeks, instead of a year or longer
  • As the building block is already fully tested and operational, the feasibility can focus on the rest of the IoT solution, where the uncertainties and risks are usually much less significant
  • BACE will start collecting data rapidly. This means that the first tangible results will be in reach quickly, allowing the team to assess the added value early in the process

Extra details

BACE Core

BACE Core is best suited for connecting your products. This module can be built into your solution in a quick and easy way. The integration with your electronics is made through established data protocols or minimal custom firmware development.

BACE Plus

BACE Plus is best suited for connecting your assets and sensors. This BACE module is delivered as a gateway or connects straight to your device via Modbus or CAN bus or other communication protocols. It offers optional sensors for temperature, light intensity, humidity, presence, and CO2. It delivers LTE-M and 2G connectivity and can act as a Bluetooth hub or access point for Bluetooth-enabled IoT sensors.

IoT Platform

BACE allows data transfers between your asset and the cloud, stores your data, and makes it available through a secured API. Connect to the API from your Enterprise Platform and be ready for rapid development and deployment of a scalable IoT solution.

BACE’s IoT Platform provides you the key functions needed in IoT security management, real-time health status information of each module, device twin, sync & state management, and structured firmware updates.
