The time it takes to develop, prototype and roll out new IoT devices is now dramatically reduced with the launch of the new HERA300 modular IoT hardware platform and rapid prototyping methodology from Eseye, the UK-based cellular IoT connectivity specialist.
On average, an IoT device currently takes around twelve months to bring to market - a barrier to the success of many IoT projects. The modular HERA300 IoT device and rapid development platform fast-tracks the process from initial idea to a working prototype in a matter of weeks, ultimately ensuring momentum is maintained and businesses see a quicker return on investment.
When combined with Eseye’s rapid prototyping methodology, HERA300 allows IoT theories to be tested in their native environments, where real data can be gathered to support operational planning and investment business case requirements. Once the required data is captured, it can be seamlessly delivered to hyperscale cloud providers, through preferred system integrator partners, to maximise a wide range of additional IoT services and functionality.
Alongside HERA300, Eseye has developed an eight-step rapid prototyping methodology that enables the rapid build and deployment of IoT devices - from building the initial model, to carrying out iterative test and development stages - resulting in a prototype that can be confidently deployed immediately into the field. Using Eseye’s methodology removes a significant amount of financial and reputational risk throughout the exploration phase of the project and builds significantly on the likelihood of success for the final approved designs.
The HERA300 platform carries essential functionality on a modular board, meaning the platform can be rapidly adapted to meet the testing requirements and ensure project success. It features multiple sockets allowing for up to five additional sensors or modules to be plugged in, a modem interface, core software architecture including over-the-air software updates, and built-in temperature, pressure and humidity sensing designed to monitor the board’s environment.
Eseye’s award-winning AnyNet Secure managed IoT connectivity service is built into any HERA300 solution and provides unified, transparent and centralised management control to support rapid IoT deployment. Customers receive real-time IoT device and estate performance insights through automated data transfer; registered, secured, monitored and analysed on their chosen cloud platform, enabling them to focus on business performance and growth.
