System Architecture

Multiprotocol vendor-agnostic framework. Direct support for many standard communication protocols (SNMP, Modbus, OPC, JMX, and more).
Modular, scalable, and reliable architecture. New data processing and visualization modules may be installed into server core as plug-ins. Support for high-availability clustering.
Hierarchical multi-user environment with role-based access control permissions.
The special Device Normalization technology ensures generic flexible approach for controlling, configuring and monitoring different types of hardware devices.
Robust communication protocol for data exchange between server, programmable controllers, and client applications.
A secure GUI client is available, along with a legacy AJAX-based web client.

Device Management

  • Automatic discovery and provisioning of devices.

  • Remote configuration of devices and advanced synchronization allowing to perform delayed configuration even when devices are temporarily disconnected from the server.

  • Real-time monitoring of device status and events.

  • Flexible event filtering capabilities.

  • Support for event acknowledgments by system operators, including e-mail acknowledgments.

  • Customizable alerts supporting different types of notifications (sound, popup messages, e-mail, SMS etc.).

  • Support for pending alerts and alert escalation.

  • Alert-to-action bindings allow executing corrective actions when an alert is raised. Corrective actions may be controlled by an operator or executed in a non-interactive mode with pre-defined user input.

  • Advanced reporting facility, automatic report generation from any viewed/edited data.

  • Built-in report editor, report printing and exporting in different formats.

  • Charting, support for a wide list of chart types, including dynamically updated charts.

  • Integrated SQL-based query language for data mining and batch configuration updates.

  • Trackers for monitoring mission-critical data. Every tracker has an unlimited number of user-defined states, indicated by color highlighting.

  • Advanced job scheduler for periodic execution of any device-related or system actions.

  • Grouping and group operations are available for different system objects (user accounts, alerts, event filters, queries etc.) and hardware devices.

  • Advanced replication of configuration between any similar system objects and devices. The configuration may be copied even between devices that use different firmware versions.

  • Common data tables store any custom data in a user-defined format. System-wide or user’s personal common tables may contain master-copies of device settings that are used to configure multiple devices. Another use is associating common tables with devices and system objects to form their custom properties.

  • Favorites allow access to commonly used actions.

  • Auto-run facility to start actions automatically upon operator login.

  • Interactive guides greatly that help new users to become familiar with basic system operations.

Development & Integration

  • Widgets feature allow creating custom forms, interactive GUI components and complex Human-Machine Interfaces (HMI) to configure and monitor your devices. Integrated GUI Builder application to create your widgets from scratch in WYSIWYG mode.

  • Widgets may be combined into a dashboard to provide quick and convenient access to system-critical parameters.

  • Expression language for flexible alert triggering rules, event filtering, and other data processing. Interactive Expression Builder component is available.

  • Support for server-side pure-Java scripts for the fine-grained real-time server control and custom operations. Client-side scripts for driving widgets.

  • Multi-level logging to console, text/XML files, windows event log, unix syslog, database, E-mail and other destinations.

  • Multiple time zones support. Automatic time conversion in the case when server, users and devices are located in different time zones.

  • Support of export and import of any system or device data to numerous formats, including XML, HTML, CSV, XLS, PDF, RTF etc.

  • Embedded Web-service allows integration with third-party enterprise applications.

  • Open-source Java and .NET API’s are available for easy integration with the customer’s CRM, ERP and other legacy software.

  • Flexible customization options, support for internationalization, localization and user-provided graphical and text resources.

  • Java-based architecture, key system components work under most modern operating systems. Server component supports headless remote installation and administration.

  • Compatible with most present-day database servers. An embedded database is bundled with the server to ensure fast deployment.

  • Comprehensive manual with numerous examples and tutorials is available along with external API references.

  • Device Simulator. The virtual software-based device is available for testing and debugging purposes.

Enterprise Integration

SimageM2M system captures live, up-to-date information about all of your products in the field, giving your enterprise systems real-time data to speed operations. For example, detected product faults can trigger automatic generation of a trouble ticket in a CRM system, dispatching field technicians with detailed information on required repairs. Usage data can be sent to billing and supply chain management systems, eliminating error-prone manual steps and reducing process time delays from months to minutes.

Enterprise integration is enabled through Web Services and open-source Java/.NET API's. These integration methods provide access to all available system and device data, management operations and event history.
