It's all about connectivity...

Hello fellows,

You should have heard about LoRa, yeah? And you probably know that ThingsBoard supports their devices. To get started with setup of LoRa server so that it forwards collected data to ThingsBoard LoRaserver team  has recently designed a guide. Easy-deasy

If you completed all the steps, then ThingsBoard will receive uplink data (or telemetry) and LoRa App Server will forward data for your Device, using the Access Token for authentication.

Deploy anywhere now?


Those of you, who listen to our release notes  already aware of the results of our few months sprintBulkingclaimingself-regging and many new features and fixes are available within ThingsBoard v2.4.0 . 
But! The other outstanding (at least for our team) news is dedicated to a product, that was released recently as well. License portal (License server) is a breeze billing solution that allows ThingsBoard Professional Edition (TB PE) customers to easily purchase license keys online. And amongst all PROs of this product (btw, the full description is available from this documentation page) the very best, we consider, is the possibility to deploy your ThingsBoard PE anywhere. For example, from now Pay-as-you-go licenses works for on-premises installations.

And with this looney tune we are at the start of our next sprint...

Smart and the City

Another interesting case, kindly shared with us. We encourage you to share your experiences in utilizing ThingsBoard for your fascinating solutions. 
These outstanding dashboards — a result of collaboration between OMS, a.s. (lighting producer and Smart Lighting solution provider) and MAKERS s. r. o. (IoT solutions software house). 

"We were looking for IoT platform serving as core backend for Smart City solutions, and Thingsboard became our first clear choice. It contains necessary business functionality and support all needed technologies/protocols which we required. Later on, Thingsboard became the heart of the Smart City solution" . 

Jan Masaryk, co-founder, MAKERS s. r. o.

"OMS is building first-class Smart City product named CitySys, open platform, which enable control and maintain several city domains like Lighting, Traffic, Security, Energy Management, etc. CitySys core part is Smart Lighting module, which establish core infrastructure, transport and software layers enabling gradually expand to other areas and integrate any 3rd solutions and sensors.
We can confirm that Thingsboard platform became a core component of our Smart City strategy and we are looking forward to see business advantages in our expected deployments".

Go in 4

You definitely heard about Industry 4.0 and probably most of you are involved in this trend. ThingsBoard is one of the key components for "smarting" manufactures. We kindly appreciate any of you, who share with us particular case studies, results and efficiency of utilizing TB. Below you can find quotations from CITEVE case study.

CITEVE is the technological center for textile and garment industries from Portugal. The Institute is running projects for the Textile Industry aiming to establish a collective and structured action, oriented to the pre-competitive capacities, which enhance and value R&D results by reinforcing transference and scientific and technological knowledge for this sector. These projects have strategic areas of focus: Industry 4.0 and Internet of Things (IoT); New Complex Textile Structures; Multifunctionalization; Sustainability and Circular Economy.

"Thingsboard (TB) platform was selected for experimentation due to its good reputation, not only under academic reviews, but also under the GitHub and the global Internet community. This software is available with an open-source license and its website has lessons on how to use each feature, this made easy for the team to install, run and learn how to use this platform." 

"With the implementation of TB CE, we were able to develop and gather knowledge on several key-topics of the I4.0 and IoT paradigm: 
- Security (Network, Devices and Users management);
- Connectivity (M2M communication and protocols);
- Machine Control (Programing with traditional [Python and Java] and modern [Rule Engine and RPC requests] frameworks).
With this knowledge, we are now able to prepare and setup a legacy textile-coating machine so that all of its parameters, rules and data are online and under control of its managers"

Júlio Sá  I4.0 researcher from CITEVE

Amazing facts on IoT

Just recently noted enormous activity. The number of connected devices will increase within the next years. So it is necessary to learn more about the Internet of Things. We contribute our small piece of IoT pie and educate people via different channels (this blog, YouTube, by providing training sessions etc.).
What would be the best step forward? IoT at schools? Public lessons? Print materials?
