Actuators

 

 

An actuator is the mechanism by which a control system acts upon an environment. The control system can be simple (a fixed mechanical or electronic system), software-based (e.g. a printer driver, robot control system), a human, or any other input.

 

The MYNXG Platform supports infinite number of actuators through its IPV6 protocol approach.

C

Capillary networks

 

 

A capillary network is a local network that uses ISM band ShortRange or MidRange radio-access technologies to provide groups of devices with connectivity. By leveraging the key capabilities of cellular networks – ubiquity, integrated security, network management and advanced backhaul connectivity – capillary networks will become a key enabler of the Networked Society.

 

MYNXG CTRL provides for the capillary networks up to 6 extension cards for capillary networks supporting 6LoWPAN™, ZigBee™, Mid-Range Radio wireless protocols, plus 2 x LAN connections with dedicated support for PROFINET™. An important feature of the MYNXG CTRL is Collision Management for Heterogeneous Networks between and within LTE, HSPA, Wi-Fi, and Capillary Network Technologies.

Cloud security

 

 

Cloud computing security or, more simply, cloud security is an evolving sub-domain of computer security, network security, and, more broadly, information security. It refers to a broad set of policies, technologies, and controls deployed to protect data, applications, and the associated infrastructure of cloud computing.

 

MYNXG CTRL implements mobile network based General Bootstrapping Architecture (GBA) technology over LTE offering end to end security from devices to the cloud.

COAP

 

 

Constrained Application Protocol (CoAP) is a software protocol intended to be used in electronics devices that allows them to communicate interactively over the Internet. It is particularly targeted for small low power sensors, switches, valves and similar components that need to be controlled or supervised remotely, through standard Internet networks. CoAP is an application layer protocol that is intended for use in resource-constrained internet devices, such as WSN nodes. CoAP is designed to easily translate to HTTP for simplified integration with the web, while also meeting specialized requirements such as multicast support, very low overhead, and simplicity. Multicast, low overhead, and simplicity are extremely important for Internet of Things (IoT) and Machine-to-Machine (M2M) devices, which tend to be deeply embedded and have much less memory and power supply than traditional internet devices have.

 

MYNXG CTRL supports the CoAP protocol for communicating both with devices and the cloud.

Connected Vehicle

 

 

A connected Vehicle is a car that is equipped with internet access, and usually also with a wireless local area network. This allows the car to share internet access to other devices both inside as outside the vehicle. Often, the car is also outfitted with special technologies that tap into the internet access or wireless LAN and provide additional benefits to the driver. Examples include: automatic notification of crashes, notification of speeding and safety alerts.

IoT Ecosystem

 

 

An IoT Ecosystem provides the spectrum of activities addressed by the IoT technology. The IoT Ecosystem can be described by four elements: A. The Enterprises’ type that IoT technology is deployed (i.e. the specific e.g. section/production line needs), B. The users’ type (i.e. the specific needs of managers, workers, technicians etc. for the targeted enterprise), C. The connected devices (‘Things’) type (e.g. CNC devices, Torque Wrench etc), and D. The types of info/infrastructure at the targeted enterprise (e.g. existing ERP, Scada etc.)

 

MYNXG provides a complete IoT Ecosystem in Collaboration with our Partners. Chipset and modem technology is provided by INTEL®, while Ericsson provides access and integration to Telecom operators globally.

IoT Gateway

 

 

To achieve sustainable interoperability in the Internet of Things ecosystem today there are two dominant architectures for data exchange protocols: bus-based (DDS, REST, XMPP) and broker based (AMPQ, CoAP, MQTT, JMI). The protocols that support the information exchange between interoperability domains can also be classified to message-centric (AMQP, MQTT, JMS, REST) and data-centric (DDS, CoAP, XMPP).  To use the full potential of IoT the interconnected devices communicate using lightweight protocols that don’t require extensive CPU resources. C, Java, MQTT, Python and some scripting languages are the preferable choices used by IoT applications. To handle any needed protocol conversion, database storage or decision making (e.g. collision handling), IoT nodes use separate IoT gateways in order to supplement the low-intelligence within the IoT node.

 

The MYNXG Gateway created by MyOmega is the core element for the secure Internet of Things (IoT). The MYNXG IoT Gateway is integrating Cellular, Wireless and Capillary Communication Stacks. Multiple MYNXG Controllers can act as a Network prepared for infinite scalability. It is based on Intel™ Quad-Core Atom™ Technology with Intel BIOS & Linux Kernel and provides Secure Boot & White-Listing, Trust Provisioning via Secure Element (SE) or SIM Cards.

IoT Integration

 

 

The current transition of the global Internet to IPv6 will provide a virtually unlimited number of public IP addresses able to provide bidirectional and symmetric (true M2M) access to Billions of smart Things. To that end there is high heterogeneity in IoT to ease IoT interconnections. The transition to IPv6 creates significant IoT integration needs and impacts large scale deployment and interoperability.

 

MYNXG CTRL supports LWM2M IPv6 based protocol to enumerate the connected resources (devices, sensors, actuators, etc).

IoT Solution

 

 

An IoT solution contains intelligent and efficient ‘sensor and devices’ in the core of the solution, however there are various other set of Pillars which makes overall solution successful and efficient in serving complex industry problems. Designing IOT solutions has to, by its very nature, involve networks, but the challenge is that IOT devices are ‘small’ and ‘distributed’, in comparison to conventional networked items such as PCs, Servers, or even Mobility devices. An IoT solution also involves cloud based services to manage and process the data gathered from the networked devices.

IoT SPS Support

 

 

In the Industrial Control Systems sector Internet can act as an interface environment to allow remotely access and control of ICS and SCADA systems. To access certain remote components or control servers in the IoT ecosystem, identities with associated roles and rights need to be used. This is particularly true when thinking about the communication of low level control devices (e.g. PLCs). In this case, especially for those installations spread in geographically remote locations, with scarce or non-existing surveillance (e.g. a gas or oil pipeline) remote PLC support is necessary. The problem of securely managing their digital identities (in this case crypto material allowing to sign and authenticate their readings and control messages) is of high IoT relevance when addressing remote PLC support. For example citizens identities and industrial infrastructures are quickly converging in the smart metering cases. Smart meters can be supported by PLCs to provide remotely controlled smart applications for measuring energy production and consumption of the citizen.

 

MYNXG  platform offers:

  • Support of MidRange Radio
  • Connectivity of devices
  • Collection of data
  • Profinet support.

L

LWM2M

 

 

LWM2M is a communication protocol for use between client software on a M2M device and server software on a M2M management and service enablement platform. The LWM2M protocol, to be used for remote management of M2M devices and related service enablement, has at least four outstanding characteristics: 1) it features a modern architectural design based on REST appealing to software developers, 2) it defines a resource and data model that is extensible, 3) it has been designed with performance and the constraints of M2M devices in mind, and 4) it reuses and builds on an efficient secure data transfer standard called the Constrained Application Protocol (CoAP) that has been standardised by the Internet Engineering Taskforce (IETF) as a variation of the Internet’s HTTP protocol (appropriate for data transfer to and from low-cost connected IoT devices).

 

MYNXG CTRL supports the LWM2Mprotocol for communicating both with devices and the cloud.

M

Mobile App

 

 

Mobile Applications are essential part of IoT ecosystems, platforms and solutions. They are part of the reason why the Internet of Things is able to change our existing world of communication in an unseen way: The intuitive usage of Smartphones are common knowledge today. Mobile control apps allow users to manage machinery & devices simply through finger tips. The complexity of workflows and the cost for special trainings get reduced massively.

 

The MYNXG Middleware provides a standard Android App Development Environment. The MYNXG Apps can be Native in particular for implementing Real-Time and Control functionality or browser based (HTML5) for interfacing to cloud databases, for accessing data, and data processing tools. Fully deployed GUI and WIDGETS are available. User Scenarios & examples are pre-integrated.

MQTT

 

 

MQTT is a machine-to-machine (M2M)/"Internet of Things" connectivity protocol. It was designed as an extremely lightweight publish/subscribe messaging transport. It is useful for connections with remote locations where a small code footprint is required and/or network bandwidth is at a premium.

 

MYNXG CTRL supports the MQTT protocol for communicating with the cloud as an alternative to the CoAP protocol.

S

Sensors

 

 

A sensor is a device that detects events or changes in quantities and provides a corresponding output, generally as an electrical or optical signal.

Sensors are used in everyday objects such as touch-sensitive elevator buttons (tactile sensor) and lamps which dim or brighten by touching the base, besides innumerable applications of which most people are never aware. With advances in micromachinery and easy-to-use microcontroller platforms, the uses of sensors have expanded beyond the more traditional fields of temperature, pressure or flow measurement, for example into MARG sensors. Moreover, analog sensors such as potentiometers and force-sensing resistors are still widely used. Applications include manufacturing and machinery, airplanes and aerospace, cars, medicine and robotics.

 

MYNXG technology is addressing industrial production and is tailored for industrial applications (Automation, Logistics, Automotive and Facility Control). Several 1000 sensors and actors can be supported concurrently without losing data or congesting the backbone.

SixLoWPAN

 

 

6LoWPAN is an acronym of IPv6 over Low power Wireless Personal Area Networks. The 6LoWPAN concept originated from the idea that "the Internet Protocol could and should be applied even to the smallest devices," and that low-power devices with limited processing capabilities should be able to participate in the Internet of Things.

The 6LoWPAN group has defined encapsulation and header compression mechanisms that allow IPv6 packets to be sent to and received from over IEEE 802.15.4 based networks. 

 

MYNXG CTRL supports through its extension cards communication with Capillary Networks over 6LoWPAN™ with a Range up to 30m (inside buildings).

MYNXG makes any device a mobile Citizen

MYNXG is prepared for smart city applications with the support of MidRange Radio.

Smart devices

 

 

A smart device is an electronic device, generally connected to other devices or networks via different wireless protocols such as Bluetooth, NFC, WiFi, 3G, etc., that can operate to some extent interactively and autonomously. It is widely believed that these types of devices will outnumber any other forms of smart computing and communication in a very short time, in part, acting as a useful enabler for the Internet of Things. The term can also refer to a ubiquitous computing device: a device that exhibits some properties of ubiquitous computing including, but not necessary, artificial intelligence.

Smart devices can be designed to support a variety of form factors, a range of properties pertaining to ubiquitous computing and to be used in three main system environments: physical world, human-centred environments and distributed computing environments."

 

The MYNXG CTRL supports five different device classes (Full Device, Managed Full Devices, Devices, Limited Devices, Passive Device). Devices are classified according to capabilities:

 

  • Connectivity (Communication abilities)
  • Ability (Describing the possibilities of the device)
  • Security (How security is provided)
  • Control (How much functions does the device control).
Smart metering

 

 

A smart meter is usually an electronic device that records consumption of electric energy in intervals of an hour or less and communicates that information at least daily back to the utility for monitoring and billing. Smart meters enable two-way communication between the meter and the central system. Unlike home energy monitors, smart meters can gather data for remote reporting. Such an advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) differs from traditional automatic meter reading (AMR) in that it enables two-way communications with the meter. The term Smart Meter often refers to an electricity meter, but it also may mean a device measuring natural gas or water consumption.

 

The basic architecture of the MYNXG Platform is fully compliant with the BSI recommended “Protection Profile for the Gateway of a Smart Metering System”.

X

XMPP

 

 

Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol (XMPP) is a communications protocol for message-oriented middleware based on XML (Extensible Markup Language). The protocol was originally named Jabber, and was developed by the Jabber open-source community in 1999 for near real-time, instant messaging (IM), presence information, and contact list maintenance. Designed to be extensible, the protocol has also been used for publish-subscribe systems, signalling for VoIP, video, file transfer, gaming, Internet of Things (IoT) applications such as the smart grid, and social networking services.

Unlike most instant messaging protocols, XMPP is defined in an open standard and uses an open systems approach of development and application, by which anyone may implement an XMPP service and interoperate with other organizations' implementations.

 

MYNXG CTRL will be prepared to support the XMPP protocol for communicating with the cloud as an alternative to the CoAP protocol.
