Overview

Having trouble locating all your valuable equipment when you need to find it? Cellio Cellular Gateways with GPS can be used on equipment to track the location and movement of the equipment – tied to datahosting and dashboarding this can generate a map or table to give you instant access to the location of any mobile, stationary, or fixed asset you want tracked.

Cellular (CDMA, GSM) with GPS

Cellio Gateways are provided with either CDMA or GSM capabilities. Through the Gateway, GPS locations can be identified and then transmitted via the cellular networks to the back-end or cloud data hosting platform of choice. Depending on the frequency of updates from the Gateway the location and status of all assets can be determined at any time. Gateways can be configured, reconfigured, and even updated from the back-end without having to go to the field.

Tracking Location and Movement

Data collected from the Gateway devices can be accessed from the data storage and used for mapping in a traditional map form, mapped into a table or spreadsheet form, or even mapped into various tiers of alert conditions to generate notifications (SMS, Email, Data Posting, etc.). The collected data can also be used to inform workflows, exchange data with other back-end or enterprise systems, as well as shared via dashboard views with employees and customers/clients via their own customized view.

Bonus: LoRa Connection to Transceivers

With Gateways installed on assets/equipment that are either stationary or mobile, other devices that be used for signaling (inputs signals like a pushbutton or output signals like an LED display or alarm) can also be connected to the back-end via the LoRa wireless capability built into the Gateway devices. This additional capability can inexpensively extend the value of the system and the uses throughout your operation and the operation at client facilities or job sites.

Conclusion

The Cellio Wireless Network has been designed to be as quick, affordable, and high quality. Cellio Wireless Transceivers allow the Cellio system and customers to quickly and easily expand existing systems with as many sensors and controllers as they like (with minimal incremental expense).  The data collected in the back-end data system can be easily and rapidly mapped and provided for view on PC’s, tables, smartphones, etc. both via browser views as well as automatically generated native mobile app views. Sharing and modifying the dashboard views is quick and easy. All of this is available and easy to put in place today. We know that getting IIoT/M2M/IoT solutions successfully designed/implemented/running from scratch can be tough if you try to do it alone – that is why we have assembled all the pieces you need with Cellio. If your priority is knowing where your assets are currently located and detecting when they move, Cellio Gateways will do this for you – and more.

Overview

When evaluating ways to connect real world devices to the back-end there are a number of options to consider. Cellio provides two primary means of connecting – Cellular CDMA and Cellular GSM. The question arises, “What if I don’t get good cellular signal from any carriers at my location?” This is why Cellio also provides Wi-Fi as an option. Real world assets combined with a Cellio Transceiver and a Cellio Gateway, is the makings for a highly efficient, effective, and distributed IIoT system that can be used reliably to get information from the back-end and into the physical world.

Wi-Fi + Satellite

If being connected from anywhere in the world at any time is the most important requirement in the application, the satellite option may be the only approach. Satellite comes with other issues and costs, but in rural or remote settings it may very well be the only option. In this configuration, the Cellio system would connect to a Wi-Fi access point connected to the Satellite system which would then connect to the back-end.

cellio_iiot_connectivity_2

Caption: Cellio Wi-Fi option paired with Satellite gives connectivity globally.

 

 

Wi-Fi + Corporate Ethernet

Depending on the corporation and the philosophy of the IT Department, connecting to the Corporate Network may or may not be an option. In this configuration, the Cellio system would connect to a Wi-Fi access point connected to the Corporate Network (using appropriate credentials) and then connect to the back-end through the Corporate Network connection(s) to the cloud or the corporate data stores.

cellio_iiot_connectivity_3

Caption: Cellio Wi-Fi option paired with Corporate Ethernet gives local connectivity with existing infrastructure.

 

 

Wi-Fi + Landline Options

With various offices, offsite locations, divisions, sites, subsidiaries, etc. there may be existing connections to the internet or corporate network using business grade or even residential grade landline connections (DSL, Cable, T1, etc.). In these configurations, the Cellio system is simply connected in those locations to a Wi-Fi access point and then over the landline to the cloud and ultimately to data hosting or the corporate network data stores.

cellio_iiot_connectivity_4

Caption: Cellio Wi-Fi option paired with Landline gives local connectivity to a variety of carriers and can re-use existing connections.

 

 

Wi-Fi + Other Wireless and Wireline Options

The examples given above are by no means exhaustive. With the flexibility of Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi access points (they almost always have an Ethernet port) whatever a Wi-Fi access point can connect to should be able to connect the Cellio system to the back-end. Some examples of these other options would be connections like Microwave, Laser, Mobile Radio, etc. In these configurations, the Cellio system is simply connected to a Wi-Fi access point and then over connection technology to the cloud and ultimately to data hosting or the corporate network data stores.

cellio_iiot_connectivity_5

Caption: Cellio Wi-Fi option paired with other wireless and wireline options gives vast array of possibilities of connections to the back-end.

 

 

Conclusion

The Cellio Wireless Network has been designed to be as quick, affordable, and high quality. Cellio Wireless Transceivers allow the Cellio system and customers to quickly and easily expand existing systems with as many sensors and controllers as they like (with minimal incremental expense).  The data collected in the back-end data system can be easily and rapidly mapped and provided for view on PC’s, tables, smartphones, etc. both via browser views as well as automatically generated native mobile app views.

Overview

Quite likely, the simplest and most useful device we can control is the ubiquitous Light Emitting Diode (LED). When it comes to simplicity, low cost, and effective ways to communicate information, the humble LED can always be counted on to convert a simple digital output into light. If some clever methods are used, the LED can be used to blink various codes and instructions that can then be used by human operators or to communicate with sophisticated equipment and programs. When an LED is combined with a Cellio Transceiver and a Cellio Gateway, you have the makings for a highly efficient, effective, and distributed IIoT system that can be used reliably to get information from the back-end and into the physical world.cellio_control_LED1

Overview

Often overlooked, the simplest and smartest sensor that we have access to that generates the fewest false positives and the fewest false negatives is … the unassuming pushbutton. In our attempts to automate most everything, the humble pushbutton is typically ignored as a proven elegant, inexpensive, reliable, and practical answer to signaling when something needs attention. Combine the simple pushbutton with a Cellio Transceiver and a Cellio Gateway (that has GPS in it), and you have the makings for a highly efficient, effective, and distributed IIoT system that can be used reliably to get information to the back-end and into dashboards for use with visualization, planning, notifications, and alerts.cellio_pushbutton_1Caption: A simple pushbutton plus Cellio provides a rapid means of empowering users to signal conditions to the back-end.

 

Integrating the Pushbutton Sensor

In this simple example, the pushbutton is connected one of the digital inputs of the Transceiver. The Transceiver communicates with the Gateway using LoRa (up to a mile away). The Gateway communicates with the network over CDMA, GSM, or Wi-Fi.

Overview

Starting from a business problem that actually needs to be solved, let’s build a Cellio IIoT/M2M/IoT solution from the bottom up. For this case, assume that we want to see the location of all the trailers in our fleet and that we also want to know if the trailers are empty – so that we can optimally route drivers to use trailers that are unused or under utilized and also find any “missing” trailers. Let’s use what we already have on the trailers and Cellio to get the data we want from where it is to where we need it be, while keeping costs as low as possible and functionality as high as possible.trucking_cellio_1Caption: Cellio Transceivers and Gateways can be used with existing equipment to optimally configure IIoT/M2M/IoT implementation for Trailer Tracking.

 

Trailer Tracking Objectives

In this case, let’s make some basic assumptions about the objectives of the system we want:

 

  • Know the location of all trailers at least once a day
  • Know the empty status of all trailers at least once a day
  • Virtually maintenance free once installed
  • Minimal upfront equipment and installation costs
  • Minimal time to implement => get real live data immediately
  • Minimal monthly, or annual fees, for data connectivity and data hosting
  • Fleet dashboards that run on PC as well as mobile devices
  • Driver and fleet route optimization
  • Alerts/Notifications when trailers are missing
  • Alerts/Notifications when trailers are empty
  • Optional: Know the temperature and humidity inside trailers at least once a day

 

The above items come with the expectation that the owners/operators of the trailers want to be able to see a map of all the last known locations of the all the trailers, colors/icons that indicate which trailers are empty (or not empty), and special notifications of trailers that haven’t reported in within a certain period of time. The owners/operators also want to be able to provide customized dashboard views to their drivers and customers about the status/location of specific trailers. All of this needs to be up and running as soon as possible for as little as possible.

Cellio for Tracking Trailer Location

Cellio Wireless Gateways include both the cellular connection (CDMA or GSM or Wi-Fi) and GPS. By default they ship with integrated internal antennas which helps to minimize costs (costs of additional accessories, additional installations, additional mountings, additional maintenance, and better long term availability and performance). Combined with a low profile solar panel, the Cellio Wireless Gateways can run without having to connect to any power source and without having to worry about replacing batteries – virtually maintenance and worry free. If trailers are religiously parked in lots with public or open Wi-Fi access, a Cellio Wireless Wi-Fi Gateway could be used and eliminate all monthly data connection fees. If Wi-Fi is not available wherever trailers will likely be located, a cellular connection through CDMA or GSM will be needed to collect the GPS location of each trailer once a day. When the Cellio Gateway transmits the GPS location, the dashboard map will be updated with the location and any other sensor information available from Cellio Wireless Transceivers mounted in/on/around the Trailer.

trucking_cellio_3

 

Caption: Cellio Wireless Gateways provide GPS information to track the location of the trailers.

 

Cellio For Sensing/Reporting Trailer Empty (and Other Information)

Cellio Wireless Transceivers can be connected to a host of technologies and different kids of sensors to detect everything from whether a trailer is empty to the temperature, humidity, and other information that is useful for trailer owners/operators. In our example case, a Transceiver unit is outfitted with a sensor that measures whether the trailer is empty or not and transmits the information to Cellio Wireless Gateway that is mounted on the trailer. When the Gateway checks in each day, it provides the sensor readings from the Transceiver and this is added to the map. Additional sensors can be connected to the same Transceiver, or additional Transceivers can be mounted around the trailer.trucking_cellio_4Caption: Cellio Transceivers collect the sensor information from inside the Trailer and wirelessly transmit the readings to the Cellio Gateway.

 

Bonus: Cellio Data Mapped to Dashboard View(s) and Alerts/Notifications

The data transmitted from the Cellio Wireless Transceivers to the Gateways and then to the back-end data systems can then be mapped and displayed visually for owners/operators to see where all of the trailers are located, whether they are checking in, and any other information (like empty or not empty). This information can also be used with user defined settings to notify via sms/email of situations that need attention either reactively or proactively – depending on the settings defined by the owners/operators. The information from the dashboard can be shared with drivers, customers, partners, etc.

trucking_cellio_5

Caption: With data coming in from as few as one Cellio Wireless Gateway, useful information can be collected and acted upon immediately.

 

Conclusion

The Cellio Wireless Network has been designed to be as quick, affordable, and high quality as possible. Cellio Wireless Transceivers allow the Cellio system and customers to quickly and easily expand existing systems with as many sensors and controllers as they like (with minimal incremental expense). The Transceivers send the sensor information to the Gateways which in turn send the data to the back-end data systems. Gateways can connect via Cellular GSM/CDMA or Wi-Fi depending on design objectives. The data collected in the back-end data system can then be easily and rapidly mapped and provided for view on PC’s, tables, smartphones, etc. both via browser views as well as automatically generated native mobile app views. Sharing and modifying the dashboard views is quick and easy. All of this is available and easy to put in place today. We know that getting IIoT/M2M/IoT solutions successfully designed/implemented/running from scratch can be tough if you try to do it alone – that is why we have assembled all the pieces you need with Cellio. We want to make sure you are successful the first time.

Overview

Whether you are retrofitting existing manual operations to make them more automated or you have decided to install a completely new system, you are likely considering the total cost of the equipment, the installation, and also any monthly fees.  Cellio Transceivers help to minimize the equipment costs, the installation costs, and the monthly costs by leveraging less expensive wireless devices at the edge of the network. Cellio is designed to get data from where it is to where you need it be.

cellio_dsi_cost_advantage_0

Caption: Cellio Transceivers help to minimize equipment, installation, and monthly fees for IIoT/M2M/IoT system implementations.

 

Cellio Transceivers Minimize Equipment Costs

Cellio Wireless Transceivers have been designed to allow many sensors inputs and many control outputs to be connected to a single device. This approach moves the typical Device:Equipment ratio requirement from 1:1 to 1:Many.  Thus, a much smaller number of devices is needed to monitor a large number of sensors and equipment. Net net, the total equipment costs for a system is reduced compared to traditional implementations.

cellio_dsi_cost_advantage_1

Caption: Cellio Transceivers help to minimize costs by using less expensive equipment at the edge to aggregate sensor data and control capability.

 

Cellio Transceivers Minimize Installation Costs

Cellio Wireless Transceivers have the immediate advantage of being wirelessly installed on or near equipment to be monitored and/or controlled – this removes the need for costly cabling/wiring installations across long distances. Additionally, Cellio Transceivers can be configured to connect with existing sensors and instruments to make use of what is currently in place – removing the need for costly new equipment while allowing all the equipment to connected on the same network. Finally, Cellio Transceivers can be used to connect directly with raw sensor and control elements – allowing for a broader range and more highly customized elements while minimizing the costs of traditional instrumentation. On a case-by-case basis, these savings can be substantial.

cellio_dsi_cost_advantage_2

 

Caption: Cellio Transceivers help to minimize installation costs by using a single device to monitor and control multiple sensors, instruments and equipment.

 

Cellio Transceivers Minimize Annual and/or Monthly Fees

Cellio Wireless Transceivers transmit the data from sensor readings to Gateways, and the Gateways transmit the data via Cellular or Wi-Fi to back-end data systems. Similarly, Gateways transmit data back to the Transceivers that can then be used as outputs to signal or control instruments and indicators. This configuration assures that as few wireless connections via Cellular or Wi-Fi are required to be maintained. One Gateway can support hundreds of Transceivers. In the case of Cellular, annual or monthly fees can be minimized by setting up the network to use as many Transceivers as possible with as few Gateways as possible to assure optimal coverage for the environment in which the devices need to communicate. In the case of Wi-Fi, balancing the installation of access points and the relatively low cost of internet access in some locations, as many Gateways as desired could be installed to optimize or maximize coverage without affecting the total annual or monthly fees.

cellio_dsi_cost_advantage_4

 

Caption: Cellio Transceivers help to minimize monthly fees by sending data to the network through a smaller number of gateway devices.

 

Bonus: Cellio Transceivers Can Be Used with Multiple Gateways

Cellio Wireless Transceivers provide a distinct advantage when installing across an enterprise whether in many small sites, tracking large numbers of mobile assets, or in large campus environments. Leveraging Cellular, Wi-Fi, or a hybrid combination of Cellular and Wi-Fi can further reduce the costs of equipment, installation and monthly operation of the network of sensors and controllers. Multiple Cellular Gateways can be installed to provide increased coverage and reliability while minimally increasing the overall costs of the system. A combination of Cellular and Wi-Fi Gateways can be installed to shift usage from Wi-Fi to Cellular when Wi-Fi is not available.

cellio_dsi_cost_advantage_3

 

Caption: Multiple Gateways can be configured to provide increased areas of coverage and better network access for large numbers of Transceivers.

 

Conclusion

Cellio Wireless Transceivers provide an optimized wireless link from indicators, actuators, controllers and control systems to Cellio Wireless Gateways via 900MHz LoRa with transmission distances of a approximately 1 mile (3 square miles). The Transceivers can wirelessly enable existing sensors, instruments, and controllers that are already in place in field operations – thus providing the least expensive and quickest path from manual control to automated remote sensing and signaling. So whether you are installing new equipment, or trying to retrofit existing equipment, Cellio Wireless Transceivers are designed to help minimize the costs of equipment, installation, and monthly fees.
