Numerous configuration options
The software architecture of the Squid.link gateways offers numerous possibilities for configurations, allowing you to get a tailored wireless solution. Take a closer look at the architecture and your possibilities:
Depending on your needs, you can choose between using MQTT, Web Services, or custom IP communication protocol to deliver data collected by the Squid.link gateways to the backend of your solution.
For the Wide Area Network (WAN) connection, the gateway allows you to choose between several wireless technologies. These include WiFi and cellular networks. Alternatively, a custom wireless technology can be used for the connection. Another option is to establish the WAN connection via an Ethernet cable.
The Squid.link gateways allow integration of 3rd party cloud services. With such services, it is possible to develop applications without having to invest in the underlying infrastructure. Integration with cloud services ensures the fastest time to market of your solution and offers you the potential of efficiently scaling the solution from ten to millions of devices.
The Squid.link gateways offer three options on how to develop the application for your solution. You can build the application yourself using one of the gateways APIs; the Squid Smart App or the SmartAMM API. Another option is for you to use our demo application when building your application. Last, we can build the application for you.
When developing the application for your solution, you can use a high-level or a low-level API. The high-level API Squid Smart App allows you to configure your application instead of programming it. If you want to program the application, the low-level SmartAMM API is the ideal choice.
The Squid.link gateways consists of a Linux platform, including a long-term Linux kernel and a root file system. The root file system contains a number of standard Linux utilities. The Linux platform has been developed to make it as easy as possible for you to include the functionality you want in your solution.
The multiprotocol Squid.link gateways allow you to integrate devices into your solution across wireless technologies. The gateways support Zigbee, BLE, Wireless M-Bus, Z-Wave, WiFi, and cellular networks. Support for custom wireless technologies is also a possibility.
