Many existing IoT platforms force you to tie your data to third party storage. The c2 IoT development platform offers complete flexibility, putting your data wherever it is best kept.
Data is often the crown jewels of any IoT solution, and so accessing it easily and cost-effectively is crucial to commercial success. The c2 IoT development platform gives full control, integration and transparency of the data collected. Whether it’s an external cloud system over Wi-Fi and the internet, an internal hosting system using the c2 data platform, or a more localised peer to peer setup using LoRa, the c2 platform is always the perfect fit Even if it is unclear which to use, or if the infrastructure is in place but but not the software, our data toolbox is an easy way of utilizing the power of the latest data storage technologies in a low hassle way which is already integrated with different communication protocols. Internet-based options, for example, aren’t always optimal for systems that need to operate reliably in rural or remote locations. The c2 IoT development system enables robust, scalable communication systems utilising many different protocols, such as LoRa to provide long-range data transmission or Bluetooth for smaller point-to-point setups.
Should I use cloud of edge computing?
External cloud storage and processing can help avoid the complications of running server infrastructure. Suppliers charge for storage, processing power, and how much data is passing through your system- with a larger IoT network this can lead to quickly rising costs. Edge computing can take some of the strain by moving much of the data processing away from the cloud and nearer to where it is generated. The powerful synergy s7 chip is used in many of our c2 baseboards, for example means data can often be processed as soon as it’s collected. This means that only important data is stored, avoiding expensive data transfer and storage costs.
