There was a time, when a cloud was just a suspension of water vapour - a light dreamy presence on a beautiful sunny day, or the stark warning of an impending storm.
Whether you see Cloud computing as an all-encompassing processing and storage utopia, or a realisation of George Orwell’s 1984 Big Brother, it would be difficult to ignore the fact that it’s forming a central part of modern 21st century living. From hosting our online presence and storage of personal media, to delivering voice-activated services, Cloud computing has become a panacea for cost-efficient scalable computing and connectivity. Indeed, it’s the improvements in connectivity that has created the shift for consumers to ditch hard disks and store their backups in the Cloud, and for businesses to have scalable processing power on tap without having to buy more physical servers.
However, not all connections to the Cloud are high bandwidth. Many monitoring and diagnostic devices can, and are, located in remote locations - precisely because of the advantage this can bring. Using low bandwidth mobile networks, or one of the new ranges of low power, long range, wireless technologies such as NB-IoT, SigFox or LoRa, not only facilitates solutions that were previously not possible, but can also demand data storage and intelligent processing in the device itself. This so-called edge computing is used to reduce the communications overhead, thereby enabling battery-powered devices with long service lives.
Prevas have helped develop products, which encompass all aspects of Cloud-powered solutions - driving customers’ increased profits, productivity and product uptime - whether it’s innovation in the cooking space, rat-catching, automated pallet transporting or improving maintenance on military vehicles and wind turbines. By their very nature, these case studies can only give an overview of Prevas’s capabilities.
