Smart IoT Systems

HOW TO MAKE A PRODUCT A SMART PRODUCT
With over 10 years experience with IoT / M2M, Mesh Systems has developed a consistent approach to transforming "Things"" into Smart products for OEM organizations.   We will work side-by-side with your team on each step of the process that includes:

  • Smart system and Smart product design
  • Prototype testing
  • Product manufacture and integration
  • Product deployment and rollout
  • Ongoing maintenance and support

Start The process starts with a conversation about your companies goals and current product or set of products . . . or even a product that doesn’t yet exist.  
These brainstorming sessions discuss the product vision and cover important design considerations at each stage

  • Smart product path:
    • Transform a current product
    • Develop new product concept / future product
    • Servitize current processes
  • What the Smart product will do:

Your "Thing" – Any device with a digital pulse
Mesh Systems can help you transform your existing product, device or system – or help you create a new one – as long as it produces a digital pulse (device data).
It can be a clock, a lock, a sign, a lighting system or even a plant’s or city’s power grid . . . the possibilities are endless.
Once the product vision is determined, the Mesh Systems design team will review key design considerations:

  • complexity -  how complex or simple is the "Thing"”
  • habitat – will the Smart product reside inside a facility or outside exposed to weather
  • movement – will the Smart product remain stationary or will it migrate and move
  • power – what will the power (access to energy) requirements be regarding consumption and storage

Connectivity – The means to move bytes
Wired, Wireless (Tier 1 & Tier 2), security & transport
Once the product vision is determined, the Mesh Systems design team will review key design considerations:

  • security -  authentication, authorization
  • reliability – relative to the "last mile"
  • speed – cost/value tradeoff for transmission speed

Cloud Computing – brains and intelligence
Once the product vision is determined, the Mesh Systems design team will review key design considerations:

  • scalability -  how broad does it need to be
  • resiliency – how strong does it need to be
  • data consumption – how the system should efficiently "ingest" data from multiple, remote device data
  • load balancing – how should the system handle the lulls and spikes from inbound device data

Storage– big data, analytics
Once the product vision is determined, the Mesh Systems design team will review key design considerations:

  • scalability -  how broad does it need to be
  • resiliency – how strong does it need to be
  • data consumption – how the system should efficiently "ingest" data from multiple, remote device data
  • load balancing – how should the system handle the lulls and spikes from inbound device data

Control and Visualization– big data, analytics
How users’ view and interact with Smart Product data.
Because the MESHVista Platform is so configurable, you can access and view device data in numerous ways that include:

  • Screens and machines:
    • Mobile phones
    • Tablets
    • Handheld, laptop or desktop computers
  • Graphical dashboard reports and app’s:
    • Schedules
    • Point data and payload views
    • Heat mapping
    • Trend lines, pie graphs and bar charts
    • Functionality status


Once the product vision is determined, the Mesh Systems design team will review key design considerations:

  • rules and workflow – what command, control, or display instructions need to be identified so the system acts
  • data visualization requirements – how do users want to see and interact with data, what types of reports are needed (heat maps, trend lines, location pinpoints, bar charts, pie graphs, etc.)
