Deployment architecture

Transfer data from sensors in smart buildings or cities directly to the cloud. The data is consumed by applications that often provide dashboarding, condition monitoring or predictive maintenance capabilities. In addition, it’s common that data is also sent from the cloud to actuators in smart buildings or cities to control the process.

Edge Devices

Small embedded devices with sensors and/or actuators.

Network Characteristics

Direct network access between Edge Devices and Cloud.
