Mainly focused in these lines of business as a middle layer for industrial, telecom, and consumer IoT solutions, Future Networks provides end-to-end components such as IoT Platform, IoT Gateways, Mobile Clients etc. for a large majority of established IoT use cases.
As the Internet of Things continues to pervade the enterprise and consumer worlds, the Telecommunications industry stands at the crossroads of new revenue streams and new challenges brought by this revolution of connectivity.
Highly versatile Future Networks IoT cloud platform, any Operator can enter a particular business vertical with its own IoT solution. Unlimited access to network infrastructure, Telcos can provide better performance, wider scale, and - tapping into vast pools of user data - much better usability than competition.
Minimizing Telco’s operational cost by applying IoT middleware for software defined networking and network function virtualization. Using Fn and container technologies, rolling out new services and deploying large-scale IoT solutions can be done in a fraction of a time it takes today. This will provide a great edge to IoT-savvy CSPs, as they will abandon their mere “pipe keeper” roles for good and emerge as big players on the IoT field.
Mass-scale implementation of smart energy systems has been rather cost-prohibitive and thus at a premium for even the best of modern cities.
Various sensors, smart metering devices, controllers, smart energy monitors, and electrical grid assets can be, almost literally, plugged into the FN IoT platform and managed in real-time over secure network connection.
The open cloud based Fn IoT Platform provides essential IoT functional blocks which allow assembling smart energy solutions with both speed and seamless interoperability.
Fn can be used as a master IoT platform for smart building solutions, smart home energy solutions, smart lighting systems, connected heating and air conditioning systems, and IoT smart meters implementation.
The rise of the smart home and smart city is a defining moment for the Internet of Things evolution as diverse technologies are getting amalgamated into large-scale, multi-layered solutions for the benefit of entire nations.
Integrated with FN IoT, smart meters, sensors, and device gateways can be used for real-time monitoring of local and city-wide electrical power distribution, consumption of water, gas emissions, traffic load, and other city vitals. Future Networks offers a variety of out-of-the-box IoT features for smart parking, smart water management, connected waste containers, smart traffic lights for automated traffic balancing, smart street lights, and smart buildings.
The key advantages of FN IoT Platform, implementation based on production-ready components allow smart city integrators and metering soltuion providers to build their services much faster and with full freedom to customize them or integrate with anything else.
With the industrial automation solutions empowered by the Internet of Things, manufacturing production facilities and products themselves can be outfitted with computing hardware and connected using standard networking means.
open IoT platform which serves as a control hub for such connected production facilities. Being hardware- and transport-agnostic, Fn is easily integrated with a broad variety of sensors, controllers, machines, and device gateways, enabling many-to-many interoperability between them.
Through this interoperability and unified data sharing, separate parts of the production line become more responsive and capable to instantly react to different events or change their configuration settings accordingly. Failure prediction and troubleshooting also become reliable and straightforward.
On the application and data processing levels, Fn offers a rich feature set for cloud enablement and generic data treatment, which can be used to rapidly assemble end-to-end IoT applications for industrial systems automation, predictive maintenance, and remote monitoring.
Internet of Things in agriculture, smart farming applications are gaining ground with the promise to deliver 24/7 visibility into soil and crop health, machinery in use, storage conditions, animal behavior, and energy consumption level.
Integrating IoT features into medical devices greatly improves the quality and effectiveness of service, bringing especially high value for the elderly, patients with chronic conditions, and those requiring constant supervision.
Utilizing its production-ready components for IoT enablement, logistics providers can achieve high levels of operational efficiency in regard to fleet management, cargo integrity monitoring, and automated warehousing operations.
The IoT is enabling physical retailers to compete more strongly against the online challengers, to regain lost market share and continually attract consumers into the store, thus making it easier for them to buy more while saving money.
Intelligence in wearable devices, enables instant interoperability, profile management, data collection, notifications, security, and other features. Fn also provides scalable backend functionality to ensure loss-free communication between wearable devices and to connect them with data analytics and visualization tools.
Future Networks IoT platform is compatible with smart home sensors, HVAC systems and sensors. Taking advantage of highly programmable and feature-rich interoperability enabled by FN IoT, consumer IoT products will allow for hassle-free remote monitoring and control, event-driven operations, user context awareness, and even autonomous cross-device collaboration on specific tasks.
