Solution Advantages
  • Scenario-specific Solutions

    Pre-integrated, highly adaptable solutions for connected cars, public utilities, and predictive maintenance

  • Easy Device Access

    Smooth device-platform communication via IoT Agents and OSGi-based cloud inter-networking gateways (CIGs)

  • Easily Obtained Data Insights

    Value-enhancing E2E data processing capabilities, such as data injection, real-time processing, storage, analysis, and mining

  • Extended Ecosystem

    Extensive IoT application ecosystem with pre-integrated modules and devices from leading IoT manufacturers

Business Challenges
  • Concurrent Access Support

    Collecting a large amount of sensor and device data is the first step for IoT digitalization. Diverse protocols complicate access. After the data is rapidly reported to the cloud, the platform must be stable and support high-concurrency processing.

  • Data Insight Extraction

    IoT processes a large amount of data from different systems. Efficiently processing and analyzing data to facilitate operations and innovate services and business models is one of the top challenges in the IoT industry.

  • Lack of Application-enabling Tools

    Due to a lack of IoT enablement tools, traditional enterprises with insufficient IT capabilities cannot focus on service innovation. They have to invest too much in infrastructure, resulting in slow service rollouts and causing them to miss market opportunities.

  • Security and O&M Efficiency

    IoT networks are more complex and face more security threats. Security measures are urgently needed. O&M is inefficient due to a lack of monitoring, logging, and auditing measures, and incompatibility with third-party platforms.

Typical Scenarios
  • Lots of IoT Connections

  • One-Stop Big Data Analytics

  • Diverse Application Enablement

  • Security and O&M Tools

Lots of IoT Connections

Build hundreds of millions of IoT connections using the following options.

  1. Option 1: Create Connection Processing Modules Based on the IoT Platform

    In one-stop pre-integration service scenarios, you can quickly integrate multiple devices and support hundreds of millions of connections, without needing to implement O&M.

  2. Option 2: Deploy and Migrate Existing IoT Connection Processing Modules Using Basic Cloud Services

    You can quickly deploy self-developed IoT connection processing modules on the cloud by using basic services such as ECS, CCE, ELB, DMS, and DDS.

  3. Cost-Effectiveness

    The most suitable data storage, query, and analysis architectures and solutions are selected based on customer requirements. For example, compute can be decoupled from storage for non-real-time services to greatly reduce big data analysis costs.

Diverse Application Enablement

Quickly create applications based on various IaaS and PaaS services.

  1. Basic Scenario

    ECS and CCE are used to support cluster hosting and horizontal expansion.

  2. Intermediate Scenario

    Highly scalable and reliable middleware services are used to reduce O&M workloads. Common middleware services for IoT include RDS, DDS, and DMS.

  3. Advanced Scenario

    Services such as FunctionGraph, ServiceStage, and DevCloud are used, so that you can focus on business innovation.
