Easy monitoring, maintenance, and debugging of your IoT fleet
The Fleet Management Services is a range of software services that make it significantly easier for you to monitor, maintain, and debug Squid.link gateways and devices across your IoT solution from one central place.
This enables you to always stay on top of potential technical issues that could affect your system's performance as well as considerably reduce maintenance costs for your solution.
The Fleet Management services give you access to all you need to maintain your IoT fleet more effectively.
Easily update software in your devices over-the-air, simplifying and reducing your maintenance costs.
Get real-time status of all IoT devices in your network, such as wireless connection quality and battery status, to know if anything needs maintenance.
Easily backup and restore gateway data and configurations in case you need to exchange or upgrade a gateway in the system.
Enable different access rights for different people across your IoT network to administer individual rights in sections, for external consultants, support lines etc.
Enables an easy way to provision gateways and users into your IoT fleet.
The software upgrade service provides easy access to updating software in your IoT fleet which simplifies and reduces costs for maintenance. Software can be uploaded to one gateway, a group of gateways, or all gateways in the system.
The software upload services can update software in the entire network, covering:
- Gateway system software
- Gateway applications, templates etc.
- Gateway modems
- Zigbee devices connected to the gateway*
- BLE devices connected to the gateway**
*Provided the devices supports standard OTA (all Develco Products devices do)
**Provided the devices supports Silabs OTA.
The backup/restore service makes it easy to exchange a gateway. The service is very useful in cases where an upgrade of the gateway is needed or in the unlikely event of a defective gateway.
The service is capable of backing up and restoring:
- Gateway configuration
- Gateway data
- Zigbee network (for all Zigbee devices supporting the feature)
- Bluetooth Low Energy network
- Wireless M-Bus network
- Selected Zigbee devices supporting the Trust Centre Swap Out process.
In case of an upgrade from one Squid.link gateway to another, the gateway configuration is automatically re-formatted to the new gateway.
The access rights service enables the differentiation of access rights on different levels of the system.
Examples of access rights are:
- System owner: Full access to all gateways and devices
- Section administrator: Full access to all gateways in their section
- Supporter: Limited access to a group of gateways and its devices.
Individuals or groups can also be allowed certain rights, such as monitoring and read-only permissions, and disallowed others, such as activating backup/restore and firmware upgrades.
The provisioning service provides an easy way to add gateways and users to your IoT fleet. Gateways are provisioned in a secure way using production data that contains a unique certificate per gateway.
A new user consists of a name, password, list of groups to have access to and roles. Each user is authorized by their roles.
