Energy is important. Amid a supply chain crisis and rapidly rising prices, energy has become a strategic component in business decision-making processes and achieving a competitive advantage. Energy saving and better energy efficiency are a priority in all aspects: starting from devices we use, to the increasingly complex business processes we manage. New technologies are essential in development of new business models and new billing models. Among these technologies, the Internet of Things is a technology that leads to a paradigm shift in energy consumption and in making better business decisions.

Device data collection

Data from devices is collected and stored in a central repository we call the platform. Data flows in from many devices – sources that send it to the platform via different networks using various technologies. This data comes in the form of a multitude of simultaneous messages that need to be received, sorted, stored, preserved and presented in a readable way, and then forwarded to other systems that will further process them and turn them into useful information.

2

Data storage

All data is stored in the data center and kept in accordance with ISO 27001 and ISO 27017 standards, which include regularly tested and improved business continuity procedures.

3

Quality assurance

The system performs automatic data quality checks. Irregularities, such as missing data due to device or network failure and unreliable data with erroneous values, are immediately detected. The system instantly informs the user on data deficiencies before forwarding it for further processing. This reduces costs and inconveniences in problem resolution.

Implementation models

The platform is a cloud service hosted from the data center owned and fully maintained by Comping and DataTarget. In order to use the infrastructure you have to have a dedicated connection via special links provided by a network service provider – usually a telecoms operator.

We provide several models of service deployment:

  • Greenfield implementation: IoT network with connected devices – a comprehensive, turnkey solution.
  • Substitutional implementation. Network infrastructure replacement with data migration. In such cases, data migration is an additional service.
  • Umbrella implementation. Implementation on top of the existing infrastructure, where the former platform serves as a data source for ours. This approach is best used in situations where user wants to unify all of their information systems. This type of implementation also includes merging of the incompatible networks within the existing platform.

Excellence in
Operations management

It is necessary to establish and maintain a balance between people, processes, and technology. This balance is a crucial success factor and a prerequisite for an exceptional user experience, higher profits, and higher quality of service. Finally, this is what will provide you with an advantage over the competition.

Supervision and Administration

The platform is at the center of all operations, where all devices are configured and administered, and all data is updated. The platform also performs visual network monitoring: showing each device's status, master data, and technical details. There is also a mobile app for field agents which serves as a tool that simplifies and speeds up device installation.

User experience

The platform provides multiple user interfaces, depending on the industrial application – be it gas meter reading, water meter reading, or asset tracking. Working with interfaces is very comfortable as they are transparent, ergonomic, responsive, and easy to use. In addition, the application provides multiple views and reports, including mandatory regulatory reports specific to certain industries, as specified by related supervisory authorities.

Data security and Data Quality

Data from devices is collected, classified, and stored in a structured form and protected from theft, unauthorized manipulation, and destruction in accordance with ISO27001 and ISO27017 standards. Periodic data control tasks are executed automatically, which ensures completeness and validity. All data irregularities are corrected in cooperation with the user. This simplifies system maintenance and optimization. Data is automatically copied and stored at a secondary location as part of the standard backup & recovery process. Even in the case of the most challenging downtimes, the service remains maximally available, assured by constant revision of the business continuity process.

Integrations

The platform is easy to integrate with a variety of external systems, such as billing, ERP, asset management, etc. Digital transformation of data collected from remote locations, and its automatic delivery to IT systems in order to ensure business support, improves a multitude of processes - such as invoicing, business planning, maintenance, and customer support.
