Smartiply: propelling mass adoption of cost-effective IoT solutions

The Silicon Review
November, 2019


IoT and mobility create massive problems with Cloud-dependent architectures. However, billions of “Things” create massive opportunity to leverage underutilized and idle resources.Smartiply built the first platform that powers resource sharing and collaboration in the Fog, enabling a multitude of IoT use cases for online, offline, and hybrid environments. The Smartiply Fog Platform is device, network, and Cloud agnostic. The platform has been tested and perfected in some of the most challenging environments.Smartiply Fog Platform powers Edge intelligence, optimizes resources, and performs functions even without Cloud connectivity.  For online environments the platform delivers higher reliability through resource optimization.  For offline environments the platform drives Thing-to-Thing collaboration. The company propels mass adoption of cost-effective IoT solutions across all industries, customer segments, and geographies.

Industries & Use Cases

  1. Public Safety & Security

Unreliable and inadequate connectivity prevents continuous video streams and sensor data from being transmitted to the Cloud, causing security risks. The real-time smart connectivity offers a resilient and boosted connection to transport video and sensor data to the Cloud. Edge intelligence enables local analytics, decision making, and data thinning, resulting in timely action and cost savings on data transport.  The integrated platform reduces TCO and accelerates ROI.

  1. Enterprise Connectivity

Enterprises often have multiple facilities across geographies, many of them in locations with infrastructure issues. Remote facilities may need to transact with central systems in the Cloud. Branches may have to collaborate with each other for day-to-day operations. The real-time smart connectivity offers site-to-center and site-to-site collaboration to ensure mission critical functions are uninterrupted and transactions are secure.  Edge computing reduces burden on the Cloud.

  1. Smart City

Smart City warrants a diverse set of capabilities such as monitoring traffic, air quality, and lighting through a variety of sensors; identifying suspicious behavior through numerous cameras; and providing citizens special experiences in public places. Smartiply Edge Gateway enables both analog and digital sensors to be monitored, optimally captures video streams and detects anomalies locally, and facilitates government-to-citizen interactions and services—all on one platform.

  1. Constrained and Offline Environments

Many environments are deprived of connectivity: either it is unreliable, inadequate, or non-existent. Current Edge solutions do not adequately support offline environments.  Smartiply offers capabilities that support all environments: online, offline, and hybrid. For online environments connectivity is optimized through Edge intelligence. Fog-based resource sharing and collaboration drive offline functions. Offline-to-Online continuity ensures transactions always happen.


Edge Gateway

The Smartiply Edge Gateway is a patented multi-purpose computer that offers four major capabilities that make it a unique product in the industry. The real-time smart connectivity delivers reliable, secure, and uninterrupted data transport for mission critical applications. Edge intelligence allows data to be locally analysed for rapid decision and action. The gateway’s ability to support different types of wired and wireless sensors and devices makes it suitable for both new deployments as well as integration with legacy infrastructure. The device manager allows remote configuration, health check, monitoring, and reporting.Qualified for AWS Greengrass, the Smartiply Edge Gateway SH-1701 series can run AWS Lambda functions on the platform. The on board NVR also integrates with AWS Kinesis Video Service and Recognition for advanced video features.

Mobile Platform

The Smartiply mobile platform offers a Fog Computing SDK that enables resource sharing and collaboration between devices in a Fog network. It enables 3rd party developers to create a multitude of innovative apps that were never imagined before, to support use cases that are either completely Cloud-less or [Fog-based + Cloud-dependent].The SDK enables nearby devices to discover and network with each other in either a decentralized or centralized fashion, and they can interact completely Cloud-less or connect to the Cloud only when needed. It supports peer-to-peer and group communication in a Fog network. The devices can send and receive messages, share files, function as the platform for multi-player games, and even stream live data to other devices.Nearby devices can securely interact and agree to share each other’s resources, such as bandwidth, storage, computing, and sensors, to create a multiplier effect using the platform.
