Singapore's First IoT Platform for deployment of IoT-as-a-Service

Internet of Things or IoT is the current buzzword in technology. Billions of devices are already connected around the world, collecting and sharing data. The next step is to use wireless networks to add a level of digital intelligence to these connected devices by enabling them to communicate with real-time data without human intervention. Businesses today are now actively looking for an IoT solution to enhance their business offerings to cut down on processes and improve performance. To enable more businesses to tap the benefits of IoT, SPTel has developed an Internet of Things as a Service (IoT-a-a-S) platform (view the press release here).

SPTel is the first provider in Singapore to offer IoT-a-a-S on a subscription-based model

IoT-as-a-Service (IoT-a-a-S) comprises of an IoT management platform, Edge Cloud Computing platform, IoT gateways, connectivity and adjacent services such as analytics. This holistic IoT solution supports IoT service providers end-to-end operational requirements for application hosting to bandwidth and data processing.

SPTel’s IoT-a-a-S includes IoT platform that allows businesses to reap IoT benefits without hefty set-up costs and long deployment lead time for a device. IoT solution providers now can subscribe the services on a subscription basis, unlike the traditional way of deployment, to lower the barriers to entry. Deployment is also faster as our pervasive IoT-a-a-S hubs in Singapore enable you to tap into the nearest location to where you require your IoT platform.

Our unique advantage lies in our multiprotocol IoT platform. It is application-agnostic so that devices can connect to the platform regardless of their current IoT application protocol. IoT partners can also leverage our secure and truly diverse network that consists of thousands of hubs across the country to perform multi-edge computing to bring faster open source IoT platform services to their customers.

This award-winning solution is the only such service in Singapore that strings together connectivity, facilities management and Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC) for faster data processing, and device management.

Why you should consider an IoT Platform?

What is an IoT Platform?

An IoT platform is a software layer that allows any Internet of Things solution to connect to and transmit data and information. This application enablement platform allows IoT solution providers to quickly get an IoT service or application deployed for the end user.

SPTel’s IoT-a-a-S platform helps IoT solution providers with:

  • Data storage
  • Communication
  • Device control and coordination
  • Data management and access
  • Edge Cloud services and software deployment

By combining these services on a ready platform, businesses can quickly onboard IoT solutions or select an IoT solution from our list of IoT partners (view our solutions suite here). Because these solutions all work on a common IoT platform, management is made simpler, whether it’s scaling for multi-site use cases or to add on more sensors.

Why Use One?

IoT solutions can help a business get started, especially in technology development. Here are a few reasons why an IoT platform like ours can be used to help your business kick start IoT deployment.

  • Allows IoT solution providers to validate their ideas by testing a prototype within weeks instead of having to invest in your own management platform
  • Single point for adapting protocols and data models for gathering information and managing communications
  • Unified Device Management capabilities, simplifying corporate management
  • Ease of adding new business applications through a common interface
  • Creates common best-practices for IoT solutions, especially in defining protocols and deployment processes
  • Centralises and reduces the knowledge and task force required to operate and maintain device and connectivity issues

The Solution in Action

1
Mr Lim is running a traditional maintenance business but manual process flows and high manpower costs are impacting his bottom line.
2
He needs a way to automate his processes and digitalise workflows. This will allow him to exceed customer expectations in terms of turnaround time.
3
He has procured his own LoRa sensors to transmit data for predictive maintenance and needs to connect and test them out quickly.
4
Typically, he would need to invest in a platform and a connectivity solution, however, with IoT-a-a-S, he can subscribe to a ready solution for fast on boarding and deployment.
5
To start, he subscribes for an IoT Central Manager and IoT Edge service via SPTel’s customer portal to manage and connect his devices.
6
Upon receiving the data, he uses the IoT NiFi service to convert the raw data into readable and exportable format.
7
After deploying, he finds that the IoT solution is working well and he can send his engineers to rectify potential maintenance issues even before a break down happens, resulting in cost savings and increased customer satisfaction.
8
Mr Lim wants to expand his reach and next subscribes for IoT MEC, to host his application across multiple sites island-wide, leveraging the nearest available SPTel Edge Computing resource to each location.
9
Finally, for sensitive projects, he chooses to sign up for IoT Backhaul Connectivity for a dedicated link back to the IoT platform.
