ThingWorx™ today announced that Systech Corporation, an industry leader in the design and manufacturing of Serial-to-IP and Dial-to-IP network conversion devices for enabling IP communications, has completed certification of its SysLINK M2M Gateway as ThingWorx Ready™. This certification makes the SysLINK family of gateways compatible with the ThingWorx platform, resulting in a pre-integrated solution that improves time to market and reduces overall solution costs for customers utilizing the SysLINK M2M Gateway. The ThingWorx Ready Program allows hardware and software companies to pre-integrate their products with the ThingWorx rapid application development platform, greatly simplifying the creation and deployment of M2M solutions. This program is being utilized by a growing ecosystem of ThingWorx partners, from software system and cloud platform providers to hardware companies that provide smart sensors, devices, gateways, and machines. For Systech, the integration of ThingWorx with the SysLINK M2M Gateway combines Systech’s flexible, modular architecture with the rapid application development tools provided by ThingWorx. This provides customers with a secure, easy approach to developing new M2M applications for building automation, point of sale, security, energy management, mobile health, and industrial environments, among others. “Being able to provide M2M solutions to customers in days, rather than weeks or months, is a huge benefit,” said Robert Lutz, Director of Business Development of Systech. “M2M is such a diverse market, and customer application requirements are all over the map. The drag-and-drop mashup architecture of ThingWorx is a good match for the flexible plug-and-play hardware option cards of our SysLINK Modular M2M Gateway.” Systech’s certification as ThingWorx Ready includes pre-integration of the ThingWorx Edge MicroServer with the SysLINK gateway, which is uniquely able to communicate and bridge a wide variety of protocols and standards while providing edge intelligence to analyze, filter, and take action on remote sensor readings and device data. This integrated solution creates greater flexibility in connectivity with cloud-based monitoring services, and provides a secure, easy approach to developing new applications for home, commercial, and retail environments.
