Enterprise IoT gateway for lighting and sensing
20 December 2015
Gooee has developed a multi-protocol enterprise IoT gateway that connects lighting and sensing devices to its cloud platform.
With features such as a cloud-integrated OS, the gateway supports multiple communication protocols, including Bluetooth, Zigbee and WiFi (for commissioning) chips for wireless communication, along with Ethernet and serial port for interoperability options with other on-premise or cloud-based services.
Also featured is an ARM based processor, the ability for offline capability through a local and secure RESTful API and MQTT over WebSockets, and a localised secure app-container to allow third-party service integrations.
The gateway will run Gooee’s Bluetooth Mesh, which has been purpose-engineered for it’s lighting and sensing end-points and is capable of handling the bandwidth needed for the volume of sensing data created through Gooee’s recently announced Sensing ASIC.
To complement the new technology, Gooee can supply a separate device to extend the range and end-point count that the gateway can support. Named the ‘Puck’, it is a Power-over-Ethernet to Bluetooth extender device that runs the Mesh protocol and works with the gateway to extend the device’s range and increase the number of end-point ‘hubs’ that are managed by the technology.
Field-testing of the device is already under way, with installations at Gooee’s various facilities and pilot sites.
