When you have to choose an IOT platform or an IOT Solution, it is essential to investigate its Openness to the outside world. What is known as “Vendor Locking“, which forces the customer to not easily integrate with other systems, is common. It is critical, especially in the Internet of Things, to be able to integrate other back-office systems, other IOT networks, other IOT sensors and other Network Servers (especially LoRaWAN).

The IOT Factory platform has been designed to be totally Open. Whatever the integration you wish to achieve, whatever the protocol used, our IOT platform and our IOT solutions are Open to integration, which you can do yourself, or ask us to do it for you.

5 integration possibilities with IOT Factory:

We also offer standard integrations. Check it out!

Integration of IOT devices into JSON or TCP / IP protocol

For IOT sensors communicating over TCP / IP, the IOT platform provides a set of fully documented (JavaScript Object Notation) JSON APIs (with code examples) that can be called through HTTPS queries.
It is also possible to support a proprietary TCP protocol.

IOT device integrations via the MQTT protocol

MQTT-M2M-IOT-connectivity-protocol

The IOT Factory software platform supports both modes of communication.The Message Queuing Telemetry Transport (MQTT) protocol is an ISO standard for message communications based on a publish-subscribe model. It is optimised for remote communications on low bit rate networks.

MQTT is a natural choice for the Internet of Things. It is often described as the M2M connectivity protocol of the Internet of Things.
The operating principle is based on an architecture where a “Client” (a sensor for example) publishes (Publish) its data, by defining a “Topic”, with a Broker. Other Clients may subscribe (Subscribe) to receive data published on a particular “Topic”.

The IOT Factory software platform supports both modes of communication:

IOT Factory as MQTT Broker: As a Broker, the IOT Factory platform can receive data from sensors that publish their measurement results (Publish). And dispatcher them to “Subscribers” who wish to receive them.

IOT Factory as Subscriber: As a Subscriber, the IOT Factory platform can subscribe to different “Topics” on sensors, or from other Brokers, and feed dashboards, advanced analytics and Alerts .

LPWAN Servers Standard Integrations

We also carry out standardized integrations with different LWPAN Network Servers (LORAWAN, SIGFOX, RPMA, Weightless…).
We are open to other integrations. Contact us for more information.

Open APIs for developing third-party web or mobile applications

web-mobile-apps-APIs-IOT
It is also possible to use the IOT Factory APIs to develop dedicated web or mobile applications. IOT Factory has developed its entire platform based on APIs, which it makes available.  All APIs are documented. Code examples are also provided. Example: the integration by Proximus, developed in 2 hours!

Open APIs for integration with back-end software (ERP, BMS, WMS ...)

ERP-BMS-WMS-IOT-integration-iot-factory

Whether an ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning), a BMS (Building Management System), a CRM, WareHouse Management Software (WMS).

We offer APIs to integrate information on machines, facilities, premises in which sensors are installed. The principle is that the “master” data remains managed by the remote system, which communicates the necessary updates. 

And of course, we transmit the data collected, the analysis carried out, the alerts to be processed …

Standard Integrations recently completed

IOT Factory works closely with IOT Integrators, IOT Sensor Designers and Telecom Operators. Here are some examples of recent integrations available for our partners:

Proximus MyThings & Proximus EnCo

proximus-integration-platform-iot-factory

Proximus is the first Belgian Telecom Operator (fixed, mobile, television) and has been deploying for several years a LoRaWAN public network which now covers the entire Belgian territory. Proximus is part of the board of the LORAWAN Alliance.

The IOT Factory software platform is integrated with the two Proximus LORA offers: Proximus MyThings and Proximus EnCo. If you are a LoRa Proximus customer, or if you want to deploy LoRa sensors in Belgium, the IOT Factory platform is now available without additional integration! This integration was carried out by Proximus, based on our documented APIs! Read the Proximus article on this integration realized …

EveryNet - LORAWAN Gateways and Network Server

everynet-lora-network-server-integration-platform-iot-factory
Everynet is a leader in terms of Gateways and Network Servers for Telecom Operators. Everynet’s customers include BT, Telefonica, Nokia, Slovanet, StarNet Alliance, Digital Catapult
 
The IOT Factory platform provides standard integration to EveryNet’s Network Server. Receipt of LoRa Sensor data, bidirectional communication.

MatchX - LPWAN Gateways & Cloud Network Server

matchx-lora-network-server-integration-platform-iot-factory

MatchX is a LORA Gateways provider also offering a hosted Network Server. A standard integration has been carried out, with the help of a partner, to propose an End-to-End solution from the activation of IOT LoRa devices, to the provision of dashboards, reports and reports. business alerts.

SigFox - Alternative to LORAWAN Technology

sigfox-mena-region-iot-factory

SigFox is an international operator, present in many countries, which is a LPWAN (Low Power Wide Area Network) alternative to LORAWAN.

The IOT Factory platform offers a standard connector to retrieve data from active sensors on the SIGFOX network. Both the Data Callbacks (data transmitted by the sensors), as Service Callback – geolocation data proposed by SigFox, based on triangulation (LBS).
