WebAccess/DMP Generation 2 is an advanced Enterprise-Grade platform solution for provisioning, monitoring, managing and configuring Advantech’s routers and IoT gateways. It provides a zero-touch enablement platform for each remote device.
With WebAccess/DMP, secure zero-touch pre-provisioning and pre-configuration is simple, regardless of how large your deployment is: from one device to thousands. The platform supports full multi-tenancy, with the possibility of permissions-enabled power-user oversight across tenancies.
As an established specialist in IoT and M2M solutions, with proven pedigree and capability, Advantech has leveraged a wealth of contextual and environmental knowledge to bring you WebAccess/DMP Generation 2.0. The entire software architecture has been re-imagined and re-built with Security, Performance at Scale, Reliability, Usability, Extensibility, and Interoperability at the heart of every decision.
AssureAuth PKI is used during the device provisioning sequence. Both device and server must mutually authenticate, using Advantech’s Certificate Authority as the root of trust. Once successfully provisioned via a successful bootstrapping sequence, the devices will automatically connect with the platform.
• Device Monitoring
Monitoring device health is an important consideration for any management and monitoring platform. WebAccess/DMP provides secure device health monitoring, without requiring any configuration. Of course, whether this data is reported at all may be tuned, and turned off entirely, if so required. For every device, the health data is presented in a scalable time-series visualization: thus empowering the in-depth analysis in the simplest possible way.
• Interoperability and Extensibility
Technology changes fast: and in the world of IoT and ever-growing complexity and scale, the necessity to interoperate with existing solutions is crucial. WebAccess/DMP is built for interoperability, and for extensibility: the solution comes complete with a secure and full-featured REST-based API. Empower your world: plugin and build-out.
• Performance at Scale
WebAccess/DMP Generation 2 has been built for scale and performance. The backend service architecture includes high-availability broker clusters, with load-balancing and elastic scale enablement. Rest assured that your needs will be met, as you grow and scale your business.
• Extensible Architecture
The platform has been designed for extensibility. Using leading-edge micro-services enabled architectural best practices, together with leading-edge elastic scale technologies, load balancing and brokerage services, the platform will scale out as necessary. The user interface is built on our publicly available API, via our publicly available API Gateway, which enables real-time extensibility to available functionality, and the ability to integrate functionality with your existing services and infrastructure seamlessly: plugin, build-out.
• AssureAuth PKI
Security is built-in by design: we have built a full Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) stack into the product suite: your connected devices are securely provisioned, certified, and authenticated.
Every User must belong to at least one Tenant. Every User may belong to one or more Tenancies. Every Tenant has an “Admin” User, who decides on how to grant user permissions. For each User, for each Tenancy they belong to, unique user permissions may be granted.
• AssureSync Configuration Management
WebAccess/DMP Generation 2 has incorporated industry best-practice Digital Twin Device Model technology and combined it with real-time user-interface configuration status indicators. It is possible to granularly configure every possible configuration item on every device, as a Desired State. Every device will report its actual configuration, for every configuration item, which will be stored as a Reported State. Our AssureSync Configuration Management engine will detect differences between Desired and Reported states, and automatically reconcile differences.
• Edge Intelligence App management
Deploy one or many of our pre-prepared RouterApps (also known as “user modules”) directly from WebAccess/DMP, to one or many of your remote devices. Manage the Apps and versions you deploy: you can “pin” a specific Router App version, for each of your selected devices, as a Desired State, and you can manage the configuration settings for each Router App, for each device, it’s deployed onto.
Use the device’s SDK to build your own Edge Intelligence Apps, then use the WebAccess/DMP API to publish and deploy your own Router Apps, at scale: WebAccess/DMP enables you to build your own required platform-side user interface automatically.
Router Apps that you create yourself will be managed through our AssureSync configuration management engine, just like our native Router Apps.
• Secure Device Health Monitoring
Every remote device has build-in secure health-monitoring status indicators, that are reported to WebAccess/DMP, and stored in a Time-Series database: by default you get 3-months of history data, which you can zoom-in on and analyse at will, in real-time.
Location Monitoring is also available and can be enabled to show you precise GPS-based geographic location for each of your remote devices (devices equipped with a GNSS module).
• Built for Interoperability
WebAccess/DMP Generation 2 is Fully API Enabled: in fact, we built our entire user-interface application using the publicly-available secure REST based API, via our publicly available API gateway, which you can find at https://api.wadmp.com
This means that you have the power of interoperability with your existing infrastructure: integrate the available services that we provide with the services you wish to observe or consume.
WebAccess/DMP is available as a cloud-hosted Solution-as-a-Service, available 24/7, with no setup cost or time investment required. Simply create an account for yourself at www.wadmp.com, and you’re ready to go: you can add up to 5 Cellular Router or IoT Gateway devices free of charge, and with no expectations or constraints. There is no time limit on your user account, and no limit to the number of users you can add to your free Tenancy. Advantech doesn’t even require you to enter a payment method: getting started with management and monitoring of your first 5 devices is 100% risk-free for you.
