SDConnect™ is a revolutionary and secure software framework
designed to simplify the design of products for the ever growing market
that has become known as the “Internet of Things”. The software
framework is designed to offer a vastly improved time-to-market which is
critical for companies needing to compete in today’s fast moving
environment. The SDConnect™ portfolio moves the benchmark by
which IoT product design is measured.
SDConnect™ allows product designers to move from the traditional
single sale business model to connected devices that can harness rich
content on the Internet and allow for repeat or recursive business
models boosting both sales and customer loyalty. It allows for remote
diagnostics and software updates to dramatically reduce warranty costs.
In addition, SDConnect™ allows for product managers to see anonymous
field generated data based on real user behavioral models to drive
future product decisions.
SDConnect™ provides design engineers with a rich set of device
management features and functionality including secure device
authentication & authorization, secure over-the-air software update(s) -
OTA, secure remote diagnostics, and secure and private remote metrics,
these and many other features are attainable through the simple and easy
to use SDCommand Set™ API.
The simple interface of SDConnect™ allows for the ability to
automatically run scripts, start & stop network services, provide remote
terminal access, run a web server for setup and provisioning, cache
local measurement data and application configurable files.
The SDConnect™ software is provided in select wireless modules
from ACKme Networks as well as a separate license to fit different
business needs. The software framework is designed to be modular in its
approach allowing for an ‘al a carte’ implementation depending on
individual requirements. Numerous physical layers are support with
SDConnect version including WiConnect™ for Wi-Fi, and TruConnect™ for
Bluetooth Low Energy (Bluetooth SMART).
WiConnect™ 2.0, released today, provides higher throughput and
greater streaming mode support and is the Wi-Fi version in the SDConnect™
portfolio. Additional features of WiConnect™ 2.0 over its predecessor
include a UDP and TLS server that provides a secure extension to the
existing TCP server functionality. File management is improved with the
ability to exchange files directly with online HTTP servers. The onboard
file system allows designers to also use various configurations that can
be saved as named files and reloaded when needed.
