Application Enable Platform (AEP)

The IoT AEP is essentially a platform that helps IoT vendors implement new services quickly whilst working with diverse IoT sensors and devices. Some of the key aspects of an AEP are:

  • Unified API interface (typically RESTful) for access
  • Abstraction of IoT devices - present a unified/manageable view of existing IoT devices
  • Ability to plug in new IoT devices, possibly supporting new data formats without affecting existing services 
  • Ability to offer centralized monitoring and management
  • Offer a service factory construct that allows developers to create new services leveraging existing services (that is, not having to write each new service from scratch, if other services offer functionality it can borrow from)
  • Strong security - authentication and authorization

HSC and AEPs

HSC has worked with several ISVs and OEMs developing state of the art AEPs. In addition to working with new IoT startups that had the ability to design an AEP from the start, HSC has worked with IoT vendors that already had millions of devices deployed worldwide without a unification strategy and have helped them migrate to a unified AEP platform without affecting existing deployments and SLAs.

HSC's AEP developement platforms for AEPs include:

  • NodeJS /MEAN stack 
  • J2EE
  • Helper components written in JS, Ruby, Python, C++

IoT segments that HSC works with

  • Oil & Gas
  • Medical/Hospice
  • Telecom Networks
  • Consumer IoT devices
  • Industrial IoT (IIoT)
  • Drones
