Minimizing the effects of modular Gateway as a SPOF.
A SPOF (Single Point of Failure) is any non-redundant component or equipment of a system architecture that, if dysfunctional, would cause the entire system to fail, leading to its downtime.
In Connected Bus solution architecture, the modular Gateway is sometimes seen as a SPOF. The reliability and resilience of the Connected Bus are critical issues since modular Gateways relies on constant connectivity and data exchange with IoT Manager/Multi-Tenant Platform.
To minimize the effects of a modular Gateway as a SPOF, network access and data at all levels are secured. The software is regularly updated and maintained properly for modular Gateways. A VPN is used to protect network access from unauthorized users or devices. SD-WAN (Software Defined – Wide Area Network) makes a Connected Bus solution more flexible, automatable, resilient, and reliable. This solution is cloud managed by IoT Manager/Multi-Tenant Platform and supports ZTP (Zero-Touch Provisioning).
However, the main strategy is focused on using two modular Gateways in a balanced mode, to create redundancy in connectivity.
The Connected Bus is a complete connectivity solution based on onboard hardware, completed via centralized management software.
CAS is a multi-tenant solution that provides a tailored Captive Portal for different authentication methods and user profiles.
IoT Manager is a multi-tenant platform that provides full management & monitoring in all the Wavecom gateway interfaces & associated sensors.
Wavecom recently attended the largest bus and coach-only B2B exhibition in the world, Busworld Europe 2023.
