The Rugged Smart Machine-to-Machine (RSM2M) is a universal interconnection platform enabling Cloud and to Unified Communications connectivity to industrial devices, hence Connecting the M2M World to the Internet of Things Network. The RSM2M Gateway connects industrial protocols like Modbus to Internet, Ethernet and WiFi, bringing machines to the Internet of Things network, while the RSM2M Server connects them to the Voice-Over-IP (VoIP) infrastructure.
With a versatile modular design, the RSM2M provides Cloud, Zigbee and Cellular connections. It also allows industrial devices to take advantage of limitless VoIP applications, generating phone calls, SMS and real time data. The RSM2M enables control, configuration and monitoring of industrial devices for network management, as well as information gathering, fault detection, and alarm activation from local or remote sensors and locations.
• Configurable industrial interface that transform automation protocols like Modbus to Internet/Ethernet/Wifi technologies such as SNMP, XML, JSON and HTTP for Cloud connectivity.
• Enables Wireless M2M connection through local communication protocols like Zigbee. For remote locations, Cellular communication is also available.
• Programmable I/O points and A/D converters for user’s specific applications, plus Output Relays and Opto Isolated Inputs offer enhanced versatility.
• Ideal for security applications such as alarms, door locks, light signals, sound alerts and video surveillance, providing real time data in the Cloud.
• This programmable appliance maps industrial devices to telephone extensions. It translates Internet, Ethernet and WiFi data VoIP.
• Enables multiple Unified Communications and telephony applications, generating voice calls, emails and text messages when an event occurs.
• Keeps a log registering every event with a date, time and description
• Direct, immediate alerts on any event happening in your industrial operation. Delivers current status of your facility with a phone call or Cloud notification.
The RSM2M is the ideal platform for industrial security applications. It allows IP video cameras, motion detectors, switch doors, light sensor detectors and sound alarms systems to be interconnected, monitored and controlled through the Cloud.
Let’s say an alarm occurs because a surveillance camera notices an intruder:
-The RSM2M produces a sound alarm or alert
-Pushes alarm to a phone call, email or SMS
-Calls you direct to your cell phone
-Sends notification to a Smartphone app
-Event log is recorded in the RSM2M Server
VoIP: Voice over IP (VoIP) is a methodology and group of technologies for the delivery of voice communications and multimedia sessions over Internet Protocol (IP) networks, such as the Internet. Other terms commonly associated with VoIP are IP telephony, Internet telephony, broadband telephony, and broadband phone service.
M2M: Machine to Machine (M2M) refers to technologies that allow both wireless and wired systems to communicate with other devices of the same type. M2M is considered an integral part of the Internet of Things (IoT) and brings several benefits to industry and business  in general as it has a wide range of applications such as industrial automation, logistics, Smart Grid, Smart Cities, health, defense etc. mostly for monitoring but also for control purposes.
Unified Communications: Unified communications (UC) is the integration of real-time, enterprise, communication services such as instant messaging (chat), presence information, voice (including IP telephony), mobility features (including extension mobility and single number reach), audio, web & video conferencing, fixed-mobile convergence (FMC), desktop sharing, data sharing (including web connected electronic interactive whiteboards), call control and speech recognition with non-real-time communication services such as unified messaging (integrated voicemail, e-mail, SMS and fax). UC is not necessarily a single product, but a set of products that provides a consistent unified user-interface and user-experience across multiple devices and media-types.
Modbus: Modbus is a serial communications protocol originally published by Modicon (now Schneider Electric) in 1979 for use with its programmable logic controllers (PLCs). Simple and robust, it has since become a de facto standard communication protocol, and it is now a commonly available means of connecting industrial electronic devices.
IoT: The Internet of Things (IoT) is the interconnection of uniquely identifiable embedded computing devices within the existing Internet infrastructure. Typically, IoT is expected to offer advanced connectivity of devices, systems, and services that goes beyond machine-to-machine communications (M2M) and covers a variety of protocols, domains, and applications. The interconnection of these embedded devices (including smart objects), is expected to usher in automation in nearly all fields, while also enabling advanced applications like a Smart Grid.
Zigbee: ZigBee is a specification for a suite of high-level communication protocols used to create personal area networks built from small, low-power digital radios. ZigBee is based on an IEEE 802.15.4 standard.
