Zenatix has focused on in-house innovations across edge devices & their networking, cloud platforms, and end-user interfaces.

Wireless Mesh for Sensing and Control

We have enhanced the open-source wireless mesh OpenThread (from Google) to develop our mesh-based robust solution. It includes a wide variety of battery-powered sensors (such as temperature, humidity, luminosity, CO2, etc.) that relay data (overpowered routing nodes) to a gateway (that can be far away) using multiple hops on the mesh network.

Powered nodes also act as control nodes (such as a smart plug or a wireless PLC) beyond just being the routing nodes. The whole network is resilient to faults and opens up a wide variety of applications (ranging from deploying a large number of sensors inside/outside buildings within a campus to connected street lighting solutions spread across a large municipality).

Industrial Grade Gateway

Our state-of-the-art gateway is an open platform based on Raspberry Pi Compute Module (contains a 32-bit Quad-core processor, 1GB RAM, onboard disk, and operates on a Linux-based Operating system).

The gateway supports a wide variety of connectivity options through the plug & play modules such as 4G through an mPCIE card, WiFi/Bluetooth/OpenThread through an M.2 card, and onboard LAN. There is also a digital IO header that can be used to integrate with a variety of sensors and actuators connected directly with the gateway (besides these sensors/actuators being connected through external modules and communicating via Bluetooth/WiFi/OpenThread).

The gateway supports multiple features for rugged operation in difficult environments, including dual SIM connectivity, battery-backed RTC, onboard watchdog, battery backup, and isolated RS485 connectivity.

IoT Stack on Cloud

Our cloud-connected IoT stack is developed using open-source technologies. The IoT stack includes common IoT services such as Alerts, Time Series Database, Reports, and Dashboards.

We also have an integrated analytical platform wherein our analytical team writes models for computing business metrics from the raw streaming data. Most of the services are hosted inside a Kubernetes cluster, providing scalability as well as an easy opportunity to host them across different cloud environments. We have developed a configurable dashboard platform allowing us to customize different user interfaces across and within the customer (for different stakeholders) through drag and drop elements without writing a single line of code.

Our cloud-based IoT stack is already managing more than 200 Mn data points every single day and is ready to be scaled up to 100X very easily.

Plug & Play Platform

Zenatix on-site hardware (consisting of the industrial-grade gateway and sensing/control endpoints on the multi-hope, wireless mesh) is plug & play, enabling DIY set up by third parties e.g. SIs, Facility teams, etc.

Typical deployment timelines in buildings and chains are long (actual depends on the sq. ft area). Zenatix systems enable faster deployment, bringing down the timeline of legacy hardware by 50-80%. It also enables remote deployment, troubleshooting, and maintenance of the edge hardware.
