Industrial Cloud Services now on Advantech embedded platformsAdvantech is releasing SUSIAccess V2.0, a remote device management application. SUSIAccess is for System Integrators to centralise monitoring and management of remote embedded devices in real-time. The application is also designed to be cloud-based and provides on-demand software services so that system integrators can download and upgrade applications when they need to. All Advantech Embedded Computing products now come preloaded with SUSIAccess. By providing ready-to-use remote access, system integrators can focus on their own applications and let SUSIAccess configure the system, monitor their devices' health, and recover any system that fails.

According to an IDC survey, there will be 25 billion smart devices and intelligent systems in operation around the world by 2020, creating a next-generation prototype for the intelligent city. An important feature of all cloud-based systems is intelligent management functions for equipment and devices. Whether it is installation, maintenance, or updates, the process must be quick and simple. With cloud systems, users can install and download applications, utilities and data via a few simple clicks and they can easily configure their equipment to update itself remotely and provide automatic notifications. Faced with increasing competition, embedded developers have always strived to add more value to their products. This is where Advantech's SUSIAccess comes in.

Centralised monitoring

SUSIAccess centralises monitoring of all remote embedded devices; it collects all device data and provides logs for remote management. When errors occur, it auto-notifies the system administrator via warning popups and email alerts. And if there is a major system crash, it automatically reboots so that it can run diagnostics and deploy system recovery procedures. If necessary, it can deploy firmware upgrades or file updates, and it can even capture screens to help troubleshoot problems.

Benefits to systems integrators:

  • Lowers complexity for remote embedded system deployment
  • Saves time and resources during system builds
  • Increases system reliability
  • Decreases after-service cost

Major Functions:

  • Monitor multiple devices remotely
  • Access devices using remote desktop
  • Scheduled power management
  • Backup/Restore system image (powered by Acronis True Image)
  • Protect system from potential threats (powered by McAfee Embedded Security solution)

SUSIAccess is preloaded on all Advantech platforms and now contains an on-demand software platform in the cloud, providing new apps and updates.
