Using K-PORT, we implement the idea of individualized devices in the field while at the same time making them manageable on a mass scale.
K-PORT supports companies by automating the commissioning, servicing and maintenance of their solution in the field: With K-PORT, we offer a digital platform that combines admin, container management, remote maintenance and a secure operating system. This means we not only provide the technology, but also the expertise needed to seamlessly integrate OT and IT. The all-in-one solution consisting of hardware, software and connectivity enables the IoT-driven management of thousands of device connections — worldwide and at a glance.
As a specialist for IoT environments, we solve the puzzle of edge and cloud computing using K-PORT. The focus is on more than just technology. Our many years of experience enable us to implement use cases from the very first minute after commissioning. Regardless of whether you use applications already developed on a container basis or use one of our ready-made containers:
With K-PORT, we create real added value for your company. For example, we offer monitoring that automatically arranges device data into a dashboard via Node-RED. Due to continuous maintenance and small-delta updates, we guarantee an atomic operating system that reduces the costs of LTE connections in particular.
Zero-touch provisioning solution for industrial IoT systems
K-PORT delivers a zero-touch provisioning solution for industrial IoT systems. To achieve this, we expand K-PORT's standard solution to include the customer’s individual requirements and customer-specific hardware. The accompanying smartphone app gives you immediate access to the system — whether pre-provisioned or in the field.
What is more, additional data can be configured in the cloud and made available on the device portal with just a few clicks. Local device management ensures reliable and fast access to cloud-based data, even from complex locations. By managing the rest of the product lifecycle from the cloud, you reduce the workload and create free capacity for you and your service team.
K-PORT: key customer benefits
As part of digital device management, the device portal creates key customer benefits by providing a decisive interface for managing devices, applications and users. It is not only end users who benefit from the innovative customer self-service solution. By orchestrating operations over the entire product life cycle, manufacturers and service organizations also increase the efficiency of their applications.
The REST API allows K-PORT to be integrated into existing infrastructures. This not only guarantees you lifelong management and monitoring of an unlimited number of devices, but also speeds up your digitalization process at the same time.
