Connect & Manage
Connect, Communicate, Manage and Trust in your Generated Big Data
Integrating M2M (Machine To Machine) in an industrial network requires optimal communication means analysis – especially for distributed smart autonomous devices - including network planning and wave propagation studies, which will remain reliable once installed.
- Depending on the application and environmental constraints, Altair offer solutions – according to protocols and networks technologies - to analyze connectivity, define best sensors networks, path losses, probability of failure of nodes, etc.
- The IoT chain performance can be increased with quick modeling and simulation of end-to-end communication systems, and enabling radiations exposure safety studies.
- FEKO – Radiation emission and immunity performance, EMC regulations
Control & Decide
Develop Your Value Proposition
Exponential growth of smart devices generating big data requires adaptable tools to efficiently extract useful and valuable insights, and at the same time allow you to make those necessary decisions which have a big impact on efficiency, productivity, costs, and safety.
Classical functions such as aggregation, storage, data visualization and dash boarding are important aspects of any IoT platform related to the activity of the connected devices. It is also essential to easily drill down into historical activity details.
Our scalable and constantly evolving cloud based solutions can be employed to predict device failures and to prescribe preventive actions based on sensor data patterns.
Flexible, intuitive and collaborative yet powerful and secure, our BI platform is the key to transforming your business model and user experience.
Whether we’re talking about the factory of the future, the energy complete value-adding chain or new trends of mobility, any industry can take advantage of simulation driven design to develop intelligent solutions and face tomorrow’s market challenge.
FEKO is an electromagnetic analysis software suite allowing users to solve a range of electromagnetic problems in realistic operating environments.
