Node-Red Implementation

Two magic words
connected with the IoT world? Yes, Node-RED. We have been enabling our customers to work with this software (in Advantech routers) already for some time now.

The first option is to install individual Node-RED nodes as "Router-Apps". Details on how to install are possible ...


Remote Monitoring Guidelines Released

Written by Petr Gotthard on Thursday 22 October 2020 in the category Documentation.

Remote monitoring tools inform administrators about the overall system health, performance, and potential issues. This improves reliability and security of your network.

We just released guidelines for remote monitoring of Advantech cellular routers. This document lists all supported remote monitoring protocols and introduces various tools that can be used to remotely monitor Advantech routers. The combination of protocols and tools need to be carefully selected based on your needs as there is no single protocol that can monitor everything and no single tool that supports all protocols.

This Application Note provides recommendations for securing a cellular router and keeping it secure during installation, operation, maintenance and decommissioning. We aim at further improving this document, so please let us know in what security aspects you need additional guidance.

Fortunately, it is easy to prepare a ...

Written by Jan Otte on Tuesday 29 August 2017 in the category Documentation.

As of today, all the supported Router products should be listed on Engineering Portal.

Also, all of the relevant documents like EU Declaration of Conformity, User Manuals, Configuration Manuals and Quickstart Guides should be available as well.

The structure we chose to present the products is coming from the generation of the device. Right now, we are supporting three generation of devices:

  • A few ones out of the old v1 generation.
  • Many of the proven v2 generation ranging over different cellular technologies (2G to LTE), including 2-cellular ...
