LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - Jan 7, 2014) - Marketing Release - Vodafone has recently published an M2M whitepaper that discusses remote asset monitoring for multiple devices across multiple locations.
Within the whitepaper, Vodafone talks about the benefits of its integrated Remote Monitoring & Control Service, which includes the ability to automatically monitor the health of the organisation's assets, in real time, without having to send an engineer to the site.
In a typical M2M remote monitoring system, a communications module installed in each piece of equipment gathers and logs data from sensors -- about temperature, vibration, activity, or other variables. Using the mobile data network, these modules, deployed around the world, communicate with your central management systems to share the information they're gathering, in real time or near real time.
A multitude of challenges can affect the monitoring large quantities of devices or machines across multiple locations and countries when control, maintenance and the every day running of equipment is crucial. Without a comprehensive management solution in place, businesses are exposed to unnecessary complexity, operational in-efficiency and additional cost.
In order to allow businesses to remotely monitor and control their M2M-enabled equipment, Vodafone's integrated Remote Monitoring and Control Service combines hardware, a managed M2M connectivity service, and applications. RMCS gives management the ability to automatically monitor the health of the organisation's assets without having to send an engineer to the site.
RMCS searches for defects 'round the clock' and takes action. Examples of this process includes the automatic booking an engineer to visit with the right spare part; remotely initiating a failover to a backup system; or polling all the other pieces of equipment to double check for a similar emerging fault.
