Walt Technologies' primary focus is the synthesis of solutions to enable the Internet of Things (IoT), albeit focussed on Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and also encompassing Industry 4.0 style standards.

These technologies involve the connectivity of edge devices (Routers, Modems, Gateways, RTUs, Edge Interface units), either attended or unattended, where the edge devices connect to assets (customer equipment) to be monitored, measured and controlled, then connecting these edge devices wired or wirelessly to a business back-end system, either in the Cloud or in customers own premises.

In realising the end-to-end connectivity, Walt Technologies primarily focuses on solutions that include global standards for connectivity including Wired (xDSL, WAN, LAN, Fibre), Cellular (3G, 4G / LTE - CAT-X, CAT-1, CAT-0, LTE-M), ISM band wireless (WiFi, Bluetooth), IEEE 802.15.4 RF (Zigbee, ZWave, Mesh, Point-toPoint, Point-to-Multipoint), Low Power WAN or LP-WAN (Sigfox, LoRaWAN, NB-IoT).

Assets are usually customer connected systems either attended or unattended, local or remote. Measuring asset data is usually accomplished by means of connecting the asset to an edge connected device, and various interfaces are usually encountered when doing so, an example of some of these are:

Connecting edge assets to business systems (ERP, MRP, Custom) or Cloud enabled IoT systems, includes connecting them wired or wirelessly.

Wired connectivity solutions include using industrial grade Routers or Switches for xDSL (ADSL, VDSL), LAN for NBNco (or Fibre Broadband), LAN and WAN networks.

Wireless connectivity solutions include using industrial grade Routers, Modems, Gateways, Edge device, these all make use of one of the global standards for connectivity, such as:

Once asset data is collected (push or pull) from the edge, decisions then need to be made on what happens to a connected system. In other words to control or modify the connected systems behaviour.

Automate can be accomplished in many different ways, these are some examples:

As a final result in any IoT enabled system (MEASURE >> CONNECT >> AUTOMATE), the inputs and actions need to be reported on.

Reports could be in any form, obviously, the tendency is to digitally enable this. So report outputs on smartphones, tablet apps, or Cloud enabled applications accessible anywhere are preferred.
