Each column is connected in a secure wireless 6LoWPAN mesh network, with an average wireless range up to 200m between the columns. Each column has a built-in GPS solution for optimized local performance and mapping.
Suncil®'s Gateway is the intelligent data bridge between the cloud and the columns. It can handle data up to 255 columns in one network. All the information from the columns are transmitted through a secure wireless 6LoWPAN network to the gateway. All data from the gateway to the cloud is communicated through a secure protocol via the cellular network (3G/4G) or an ethernet solution. The gateway is typically mounted on a column or nearby buildings.
Suncil®’s Cloud Solution is a powerful cloud based SCADA solution that can configure, control and monitor all aspects of the performance of a fleet of columns. The solution is typically delivered as a cloud service, but can also be installed on a local server upon request. The Suncil® Cloud Solution offers data access through an open API.
The information and control of the system can be accessed from a smartphone, tablet or desktop computer. Various users can be connected with different access levels, depending on security clearance.
