Smart Talk Beacon
Beacon is a disruptive technology designed to secure any IoT devices without using gateways or VPNs. Beacon is a high security framework designed to run on any micro processor. Beacon secures all device operations making it easily manage and support your IoT inter device services.
With Smart Talk Beacon you move beyond the limitations of today’s security issues so you can focus on increasing profitability by making and saving money with your IoT solutions.
IoT Manufacturers implement Smart Talk Beacon with :
- Impenetrable Security
- As part of their distribution and support model.
- A fee for service where integrator/reseller and clients pay a small fee for integrated support services
- As a 3rd party agent when requested by integrator or client
Large corporations with multiple sub corporations or business units can implement private, public cloud or hybrid to service devices by region, device types and 3rd parties. (see related documents for more details)
Can offer services to clients based on
- Device types
- Specialized services
- Regional services
“The security problem arises because TCP/IP uses the address of a connected device to serve the dual purpose of identifying that device as well.” 5/17/2017, Jeff Hussey Commentary
Jeff Hussey correctly highlights the issue of discovery and related security issues.
Beacon secures your device, secures communications, makes your device smarter, adds inter devices communications and edge processing, gathers and analyze information through the health ecosystem and ensures everything is working with the support ecosystem.
Server implementations can be:
- Public Cloud
- Private Cloud
- Hybrid Public/Private
- Stand-Alone – No Cloud
What devices are compatible with Beacon?
- Almost any device with a micro processor
- Wireless devices
- Wired devices
Save Money/Make Money!
Developers save time because all their security functions are in one simple package along with support and maintenance functions.
The Health Ecosystem reduces the cost of operations and management with intelligent processes and system functions.
Support Ecosystem options facilitate a wide range of support options both internal and external with in-house technical and field support processes.
Increased profitability delivered with Bulletproof security solution.
“Trust/No Trust” Bulletproof security
Securing devices anywhere and all the time makes it possible to implement universal and standardize operations.
Edge device management
Smart edge devices manage themselves and provide quality and reliable information for operation, management and support of devices.
Inter Device Communication and Operation
Devices operate as part of a protected mesh network. Smart devices interact with each other to share information and functions. The ability to securely communicate and operate as a unified mesh of interconnected devices each with defined functions opens a whole new range of implementation opportunities.
Independent smart devices have the ability to operate or act based on ecosystem telemetry. Considerable telemetry may be generated and used for the determination of operational health.
Health is defined as the ability to perform a task with a high degree of accuracy within established performance parameters.
The Support Ecosystem allows a device owner to directly interact with their devices in a manner appropriate for their support processes. With Smart Talk Beacon, support can be delivered directly by staff or indirectly by third parties such as integration professionals. Complex manufacturer support implementations such as a support-as-a-service is possible with Beacon.
Support is a set of processes used for issue resolution. The Support Ecosystem takes input from the health ecosystem to initiate support processes. Automated processes include defined functions for configuration, parameter, state changes or output changes.
Trouble tickets created by the Health Ecosystem are the bridge between the digital world with multiple devices with errors and the physical world where people get involved to physically repair a devices to deliver a quality service.
Digital system operations extend into the physical world when digital information is provided directly to support personnel. Highly accurate device-specific information (telemetry) passes through the Health Ecosystem where learning engines and AI applications process the data. The goal is to generate reliable information, identify relevant errors, improve support processes and ensure quality of service.
Quality of Service requires quality information (accuracy and relevance), reliable processes, process tracking and effective reporting. Beacon is built upon a quality of service model to ensure your operations are profitable.
Specialized Smart Talk BeaconServices
All Smart Talk Beacon implementations have built-in specialized services including:
Server Load Balancing
Built-in multi-service operations with load balancing. This implementation supports an end to end connection authentication.
All servers are live all the time with redundancy. Server migration allows a cluster server to be replaced when necessary with limited operational effects.
Device Life Cycle Management
Devices’ life cycles include implementation, operations, maintenance and replacement. Once a device reaches the end of life, a one-click replacement process allows you to decommission the existing devices and replace them with fully configured new devices.
This includes peer relations and communication certifications.
Failed Connection Detection
Any connection whether server or device is detected, monitored and reported.
Security Breach Detection
Any breach includes unauthorized attempts by device or server. Data changes and manipulations are also monitored. In the event of a breach, automated processes occur to eject the device or server.
Performance monitoring is integrated into the health and support ecosystem.
User Behavior Monitoring
Unusual user behaviour such as changing access rights is detected and reported. Ejection is possible.
Servers can be replaced by migrating services from one computer to another.
Disaster recovery processes are built into server and device policies for automated recovery.
