Agent MaaS Suite (AMS) is the latest software solution product released by Axiomtek in response to the trend of the Internet of Things (IoT). It is a lightweight device and data management software platform that comes with information visualization and data clouding features. From the terminal device to the gateway equipment in the middle stage, and then to the remote management platform, AMS assists users in managing and handling the tasks that they may encounter in various classes, such as protocol communication, data collection and processing, message transmission, and information presentation. AMS also puts the IoT / IIoT spirit into action by performing device and equipment management, allowing users to reduce human resources and lower technical thresholds during project development so that they can fully focus on application integration and creation of value-added services.
To exemplify the spirit of IoT/IIoT while retaining flexibility, AMS is divided into two packages according to their operational role requirements: System Management – AXView 3.0; and Remote Management – MaaS (Management as a Service).
Besides providing basic device management and data processing functions, AXView 3.0 also includes flexible features for design change and functional expansion, with the main function blocks encompassing both Device and System Management (DSM) and Data Processing and Visualization (DPV).
Features of DSM
- Device Monitoring: monitoring hardware platform and I/O devices, e.g.: CPU temperature, system voltage, fan speed, DIO status, USB device insertion/removal
- System Management: system configuration settings and management, e.g.: accessing authority, DO settings, Watchdog configuration
- Event Notification: event management and configuration, e.g.: monitoring item selection, threshold value setting, event notification
- Protocol Plug-in: communication protocol plug-in (AMS supports Modbus RTU/TCP, MQTT, HTTP and TCP/UDP)
The DPV feature is built specifically to provide users with an easy-to-use operating interface. Developed under a web-based architecture, AXView 3.0 enables users to manage their devices and systems from anywhere through the network. The software also integrates Node-RED, a flow-based development tool that visualizes processed data and development flow to help achieve zero programming, reduce development manpower, and lower the technical threshold. With its visualization functions and humanized interface design, AXView 3.0 offers a remarkably intuitive and convenient solution that significantly reduces the effort of device monitoring, system management, configuration setup and protocol mounting, allowing users to be fully engaged in their work on application integration and service value additions.
The role of MaaS is to manage multiple hardware devices with AXView 3.0 installed and to integrate all machine information so that the administrator at the remote control center can instantly grasp the status of all operating equipment and system configuration settings and keep track of event records.
