End-to-end connectivity framework accelerates time to market for IoT solutions

10-06-2020 | TT Electronics | New Technologies

TT Electronics has announced the launch of ‘Speed to Connect’, an innovative framework that allows customers to deploy smart IoT solutions faster and more cost-effectively than going it alone.

Speed to Connect is an end-to-end IoT framework that seamlessly provides hardware, infrastructure, connectivity, and user experience solutions. By streamlining the secure connection of products and systems, uses deliver tangible results including improving efficiencies, removing unnecessary maintenance, decreasing the carbon footprint and allowing data-led business decisions.

The first products just launched from the Speed to Connect range include the S-2CONNECT Hub and S-2CONNECT Sense devices.

The Hub and Sense draw together an ultimate smart hub employing the latest GNSS and LTE technology, acquiring data from one or several sensor modules. The system can be deployed for asset tracking, mHealth, smart home, cold chain and industrial IoT applications, sending data over LTE Cat M1 or NB-IoT, with 2G-fallback for global coverage.

The S-2CONNECT Sense monitors environment connected with a given industrial IoT application, for example, a fleet of trucks transporting cold goods, a commercial building or a logistics container. The device senses changes in factors such as humidity, temperature, lighting and movement to remotely identify problems or trigger automated processes.

The IoT gateway is supplied by the S-2CONNECT Hub and receives and automatically transfers data from Sense devices. The data is received, monitored and analysed, powering intelligence and identifying trends that will drive future solutions and technologies.

“In the fast-paced world of IoT where technology is consistently evolving and advancing, speed to market is critical, especially when normal IoT product development can often consume resources for up to two years from concept to production. It is this challenge that has driven the development of our revolutionary new solution that cuts R&D time by up to 80%,” said Charlie Peppiatt, EVP, TT Electronics.

“We recognise that OEMs and service providers need a more viable option than just stretching their engineering resources and limited knowledge of IoT technologies. Speed to Connect answers this need with a modern and modular approach to IoT deployment, allowing customers to scale as demand increases.”
