What is Fogwing Industrial IoT Platform?

Fogwing is an Industrial IoT(Industrial Internet of Things) platform that empowers you to manage massive device provisioning (Sensor Devices, Edge Devices and Gateways), remote access control, localized or cloud data aggregation, Data Analytics and to automatically trigger Alerts and Commands. Fogwing is also designed to execute automated workflows or processes between connected devices.

Fogwing Industrial IoT platform runs on the Fogwing cloud and has everything to build the IoT solution from the connectivity standpoint to the automation process.

Fogwing Industrial IoT platform provides IoT solutions mainly for Small and Medium sized businesses.

What are all features in Fogwing Industrial IoT platform?

Fogwing Industrial IoT platform is a comprehensive suite platform with multiple features as mentioned below.

  • Device Provisioning

  • Data Rules

  • Cloud Storage/Infrastructure

  • Alert Types and Notification

  • Command Center

  • Data Processing

  • Data Storage

  • Data Enrichment

  • Device Registry

  • Data Routing

  • Data Analytics

  • Integration

  • Zapier Integration

  • User Management

Device Provisioning:

Fogwing makes it easy for users and Enterprise IT administrators to add, view and delete devices and gateways through its device provisioning feature. Fogwing supports both wireless network (3G/4G/5G) and LPWAN based LoRaWAN and NB-IoT communications.

Data Rules:

Data Rules is the one of the critical and core functions within Fogwing Industrial IoT Platform. It is an inbuilt rule engine to trigger action and the real value of IoT comes out when automating the action based on the device data. Data driven action is the best way to react based on the value of the data. Fogwing Industrial IoT Platform simplifies the rules declaration and actions without writing any code or script.

Cloud Storage/Infrastructure:

Cloud Storage is where we can check the data that is being sent by the deployed edges to the platform. Fogwing platform is hosted in the MS Azure Cloud Infrastructure. Fogwing cloud Infrastructure is highly scalable and secure.

Alert Types and Notification:

We can check the event notifications delivered against the data rules.

There are basically 3 different types of Alerts.

  • Information:

    Listing the count of “Info” alerts triggered by the system against the rules defined in the platform.

  • Warning:

    Listing the count of “Warning” alerts triggered by the system against the rules defined in the platform.

  • Critical:

    Listing the count of “Critical” alerts triggered by the system against the rules defined in the platform.

Command Center:

Fogwing Command Center is a MQTT based engine which will deliver the message to the devices through IoThub. Fogwing's Command Center can deliver the messages to any of the edge devices based on the following triggers.

  • On-Demand

  • Schedule Basis

  • Data Rule Basis

Data Processing:

As raw data is not easily readable and is not in the correct state for Analytics, Business Intelligence, Reporting or ML, it needs to be aggregated, transformed, enriched, filtered and cleaned.

Data Storage:

Once data is processed by the data processing engine all qualified data will be persisted in the data storage.

Data Enrichment:

Data Enrichment helps to calculate insightful value using data that is being generated and also helps to keep a default value that is recognized in data generation process. It also uses formulas to do the calculations.

Device Registry:

Device Registry is a unique feature provided by Fogwing Industrial IoT Platform to register the devices and make it ready for activation before deploying. It helps to make the smart IoT devices ready for self-activation by customers or end users. Device Registry allows bulk devices registration and activation.

Data Routing:

Devices can send data to Fogwing Industrial IoT platform through a router. Device sends data to router and the router in turn sends the data to the Fogwing Industrial IoT platform. Data Source is from where the data is getting generated and target edge is the device we need to map the data with.

Data Analytics:

It is an Analytical studio which is an extension of Fogwing Industrial IoT platform. It is a no-code platform for small and medium enterprises to achieve data driven operations. Data is intended for business users to understand operational performance and help in decision making.

API Integration:

Application Integration is a must needed feature in Industrial IoT platform to publish intelligent data to the business applications. Every Industrial IoT platform should have various application Integration or connectors to send data to enterprise applications.

Zapier Integration:

It is an online tool for automation. It aims to save time and increase productivity by automating repetitive tasks and facilitates data exchange between business applications and provides integration with more than 3000 applications. Fogwing has been published into the Zapier marketplace.

User Management:

Fogwing Industrial IoT platform is a multi-tenant and multi-user platform where each tenant may add more users into their account for operation purposes.
