IoT: LILEE Systems announces fog computing gateways and cloud network solution for distributed, mobile, and industrial enterprise environments.

The new TransAir STS Series Gateways and T-Cloud Management Platform combine to offer high-performance IoT (Internet of Things) innovations to new markets.

LILEE STS gateways offer multiple wired and wireless connectivity options and are installed in distributed assets, such as a bus or retail store.

LILEE Systems, provider of advanced mobile connectivity solutions and emerging innovator in cloud-based network solutions, announced today its new platform for mobile and fixed distributed enterprises, such as bus fleets and retail franchises, which includes multiple first-to-market capabilities.

“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.

LILEE’s TransAir STS series gateways and T-Cloud platform enable organisations 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.

“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. LILEE’s new STS Series of fog computing gateways achieve this goal and set a new standard for value in the distributed enterprise,” elaborated Gandhi.

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.

STS and T-Cloud offer multiple first-to-market capabilities

According to LILEE, the company’s TransAir STS series gateways and T-Cloud platform offer several first-to-market innovations.

The following lists some of them.

  • STS is the only router in the world intelligent enough to inform downstream LAN applications when the upstream link is down and the LAN applications should pause.
  • STS includes the only application server to support both Linux and Windows applications.
  • STS is the first to incorporate dual Wi-Fi 802.11ac wireless functionality both upstream and downstream.
  • STS is the first to provide two dual LTE-Advanced radios.
  • STS and T-Cloud are the first to offer cloud-based provisioning for both SD-WAN and applications, enables direct from factory delivery of solution-specific hardware.
  • STS is the first to combine the support needed for a video solution onto a single device: Power-over-Ethernet ports for IP cameras, onboard application engine for NVR software, sensors for intelligent video tagging, and upstream Wi-Fi for fast and cost-effective uploading.
