WebAccess/DMP is a software package that provides remote device management and provisioning for Advantech WAN/WWAN Routers, IoT Gateways and Wzzard wireless sensor nodes (WSNs). The Graphical User Inteface (GUI) is provided via a HTML5 front-end, which means that it is entirely browser based: all major browsers are supported. There is also a fully functional device-management API which enablesdiscovery of, configuration of, and status from, the remote devices. The Emu-Edition enables a fully on-premises deployment: this edition enables multi-tenancy for device provisioning. The Configuration Profiles feature enables no-touch configuration and mass deployment of field devices.
• Cross-browser, cross-platform based on HTML5
WebAccess/DMP is a web based HTML5 Device Management and Provisioning platform. Based on HTML5, users can use different web browsers such as: chrome, Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari etc to access WebAccess/DMP without installing any other packages. Users can easily and conveniently access WebAccess/DMP from any device such as a PC or mobile device.
• Google Maps and GPS location tracking integration
Users can define the longitude and latitude of each device. If the device is GPS-enabled, it will automatically report it’s own longitude and latidude to WebAccess/DMP. WebAccess/ DMP can then locate the position on the Google map. The location and connectivity are clearly presented on the map in the dashboard.
• Emu Edition: On-Premises
WebAccess/DMP Can be installed on-premises on end-user server equipment, or hosted on an end-user’s IaaS platform. This enables (a) fully secured on-premises installations for critical projects; and (b) the option to provide Device Management and Provisioning “as a service” to third party end users of the Devices.
• Flexible delivery options
There are 4 off-the-shelf delivery options, to suit project needs and capital budgets. There is a growth-migration plan that enables projects to “start small” with low cost, and to grow over time.
• Multi-Tenancy options
The Emu Edition enables multi-tenancy. This means, a single installation of the software enables multiple Tenants to have their own isolated environments for them to provision and manage their remote devices. Each Tenant may have as many Tenant-Admin and Tenant-User accounts as they need.
• Remote device configuration
WebAccess/DMP supports many of Advantech’s WAN/WWAN Routers (e.g. SmartStart, SmartFlex, SmartMotion, ICR-3, LR77, and others), IoT Gateways (SmartSwarm), and Wzzard wireless sensor nodes. For each of the supported device types, it is possible to configure every configuration endpoint on that device. There are many thousands of possible configuration endpoints.
• Remote device status monitoring
WebAccess/DMP enables individual device status monitoring. There are simple device statistics monitored by default (e.g. online/offline status). For each device, it is possible to get a full set of live status metrics on request, in real-time.
• Remote application management and delivery
The WAN/WWAN routers allow capability-extensions, called “user modules”. The IoT Gateways allow capability-extensions, called “apps”. Both user-modules and apps are supported on WebAccess/DMP: These applications may be deployed and configured, to one or many remote devices.
• No-touch provisioning
The Configuration Profiles Feature enables “no touch” provisioning of large quantities of remote devices. This feature enables live, in-field, mass-deployments, where the deployed remote devices will receive “push configuration” (provisioning) from the WebAccess/DMP software.
• RESTful APIs
There is a feature-rich REST API that enables scriptable interaction with the remote devices. This enables device-provisioning, and/or location and status monitoring, of the remote assets, to be fully scripted and automated. The API also enables integration with 3rd party software and services, or batch delivery of specific configuration items.
