More Information
  • Calixto System’s System On Modules are widely used for different protocol converter devices. Adding to the SOM’s capability with rich wired and wireless connectivity interfaces makes Gateway solutions for IoT and Automation.
  • Our expertise with connectivity solutions such as BLE, WiFi, RFID, NFC, Zigbee, SubGhz, LoRa, and 2/3/4G allows us to turn around solutions for IoT and Automation in significantly less time and budget.
  • An automation/IoT gateway, often referred to as a "smart hub," plays a pivotal role in the Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem. Its primary function is to act as an intermediary between the various devices and networks that make up the IoT landscape. These devices can range from smart thermostats and sensors to industrial machines and vehicles, each using different communication protocols.
  • The gateway serves as a translator, allowing these diverse devices to communicate and share data effectively. It aggregates information from multiple sources, processes it, and sends relevant data to the cloud or other applications. This data can be utilized for real-time monitoring, analytics, and automation.
  • Security is a significant concern in the IoT landscape, and gateways often play a critical role in ensuring data integrity and protection. They can implement encryption, access controls, and authentication mechanisms to safeguard data and prevent unauthorized access.
  • Furthermore, an IoT gateway can facilitate local processing, reducing latency and dependence on the cloud. This is particularly valuable in scenarios where real-time responses are essential, such as in industrial automation and healthcare applications.
  • The choice of an IoT gateway depends on specific use cases. Some are designed for consumer IoT, while others target industrial or commercial settings. They may use various wireless technologies like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Zigbee, or cellular networks to connect with devices, depending on the range and data requirements.
  • These platforms are also very power efficient and have rich peripherals for security, storage etc.
