Serious Communications Module using WiFi to provide data from industrial machinery to mobile devices

Architect

Why invest thousands of hours in custom networking, WiFi, Ethernet, Bluetooth, RS232/485, CAN and and machine connectivity hardware/software when you can leverage off-the-shelf Serious Communications Modules (SCMs) with pre-engineered, integrated, and licensed firmware including complete commercial OS and stacks?

Use with your own cloud or HMI, or seamlessly connect to Serious HMI Solutions and Serious Connect IIoT Technologies: SCMs are the center of your product’s communications innovation enabling your engineering team to focus on applications and content rather than drivers, hardware, stacks, and application plumbing.

Serious Connect IIoT Technologies, powered by the Arrow eVolve Framework , provide a strong, secure platform for provisioning, dashboards, analytics, remote updates, and more.

Develop

Efficiently develop and maintain modern, secure connectivity applications on Serious Communications Modules (SCMs) using Serious middleware powered by Segger software, stacks and tools. Pre-licensed, pre-ported and fully supported for development and deployment, everything you need to make your product highly connected is at your fingertips including MQTT and TCP/IP stacks with TLS/SSL, file systems, USB stacks, OS, and much more.

Serious can project manage your Cloud presence from initial concept to deployment an evolution. Powered by the Arrow eVolve Framework and based on industry leading platforms such as Microsoft Azure, IBM Bluemix and Amazon Web Services, Serious IIoT Technologies can deliver an outcome-changing capability to your business.

Deploy

Serious Communications Modules (SCMs) are off-the-shelf production-worthy industrial products, designed to fit seamlessly into your product production flow.

Production support with the SHIPCrane parallel programming tool enable your manufacturing team to quickly and easily outfit the modules with the desired firmware. Distribution stock and bonded inventory programs, proactive change notifications as well as long term supply and support empower your supply-line team to choose Serious as a trusted subsystem partner.

Deploying your new Cloud dashboard, including branded portals with brand, franchise and owner tiered access has never been easier. SLA-based support delivers the confidence you need to build your brand presence on the Serious IIoT Technology powered by the Arrow eVolve framework and backed by IBM, Microsoft Azure, AWS and other industry standard ingredients.

Evolve

Communications technology is constantly evolving. New hardware and software enable an ever-growing field of opportunities to improve your products’ usability and value to your customers. Similarly, there are limitless opportunities for cloud and mobile applications once your devices is fully connected, including data franchising, predictive and retroactive analytics, and even over-the-air updates and content delivery.

With Serious as your connectivity solutions partner, keep your products competitive with the latest technologies and protect your software and knowledgebase investment by leveraging a consistent architecture up and down the product line and into the future.

Interact

Every Serious Communications Module (SCM) is designed to work with your own HMI via UART or SPI connection, or direct dock into Serious Integrated HMI Modules (SIMs) for rapid development and deployment of a modern, interactive front panel experience. It is even possible to develop a scalable solution where the same hardware and software SCM configuration can be used in conjunction with different SIMs, enabling you to have a scalable product line from smaller, more cost effective UIs to larger, more powerful user experiences – all with the same communications solution.

Beyond the normal IIoT web-based capabilities provided by Serious IIoT Technologies, including dashboarding, provisioning, analytics and remote upgrades, monitoring and control the interactive experience can be further extended to the mobile device for secure anywhere, anytime access. The data can even be packaged, with managed subsets by role and user, and delivered to OEM and OEM-customer private cloud systems for further archiving and analysis.

Accelerate

Serious Communications firmware and hardware are best leveraged in conjunction with a Serious Accelerate Program.

Any level of engagement is possible: from initial scaffolding and construction of your communications application, integration with a custom protocol to talk with your existing equipment, GUI integration, training, on-site support, as well as ongoing sustaining and evolution engineering. Serious can design and maintain your complete Cloud experience including provisioning, security structure, dashboard and IIoT connectivity and design, testing, and deployment.

If improving engineering efficiency and development velocity is a concern to your organization, consider leveraging the Serious Accelerate Program to partner with, and unburden, your engineering team throughout the product lifecycle. With our help, many OEMs show internal demo in days and launch products with initial IIoT solutions in in a few short months.
