RacoWireless’ Application Marketplace meets the industry need for access to new IoT product sets and features

LAS VEGAS – September 9, 2014 – RacoWireless, a global Internet of Things (IoT) service provider, today announced the launch of its Application Marketplace, an app store empowering companies from all over the globe to quickly build, enhance and sell connected IoT/M2M solutions. Building on the Omega DevCloud announcement in August, the company is maintaining momentum with the IoT application store.

The Application Marketplace allows application developers to create new revenue streams by offering their value-added products and features to a growing community of solution and service providers. Solutions providers, in turn, gain the ability to add quantifiable value to their new and existing products. Built on RacoWireless’ Position Logic platform, the Application Marketplace allows customers to select from a growing array of feature-rich applications and have them seamlessly integrate into their connected solutions.

“While ‘making it easy’ is our mantra, part of that message is speed-to-market,” said John Horn, President of RacoWireless. “With the Application Marketplace, we are enabling our partners and solution providers to be able to get to market faster than ever before. This brings together both service providers and application developers in a way that is clearly needed in the IoT space. Now customers can quickly enhance their existing products, or build new products with a growing library of cost-saving and feature-rich applications.”

The ability to deepen the value proposition of service providers comes from the development of new applications. Aiding in that development is the introduction of Omega DevCloud, allowing web developers to build connected applications using common web language.

“Not only are we making the Internet of Things and M2M easier, we are making it exciting,” said Felix Lluberes, President of Location-Based Services at RacoWireless. “All of these tools come together to make this ecosystem work in a synchronistic way. By creating the Application Marketplace, we’ve opened the doors to innovation and monetization.”

Recently named as the “Best Application Development Environment” by M2M Evolution Magazine, RacoWireless’ Position Logic is a location-based services platform that features an intuitive environment to implement and control end-to-end, connected solutions. Operating in 70 countries, the platform will allow both new and existing customers access to enhanced features, further empowering customers with dynamic value.

RacoWireless Announces Launch of Omega DevCloud http://www.racowireless.com/racowireless-launches-omega-devcloud/ http://www.racowireless.com/racowireless-launches-omega-devcloud/#comments Tue, 12 Aug 2014 17:46:02 +0000 http://www.racowireless.com/?p=5326 LAS VEGAS – August 12, 2014 – RacoWireless (www.racowireless.com), a global machine-to-machine (M2M) service provider, today announced that it will launch Omega DevCloud, facilitating communication with IoT applications in a standardized, easy-to-use environment. The new product will remove the historical obstacles to device communication by providing an intuitive interface that is able to take device messages and commands, in any format and on virtually any device, and translate the data into a standardized format, common to web developers. “Our mission in everything that we do is to ‘make it easy’, and with the launch of Omega DevCloud, we are once again taking the complicated and making it easy,” said John Horn, president of RacoWireless. “We see a very fragmented space as companies and individuals from all backgrounds are clamoring to adopt connected technologies. However, it has been a challenge for many to get to market because of the lack of industry standards and high upfront development costs. With the launch of Omega DevCloud, we are changing all of that.” The new set of cloud-based tools, housed in RacoWireless’ award-winning Omega Management Suite, will dramatically simplify communication with M2M devices by wrapping complex, socket-based protocols in a standards-based and fully customizable restful API. Raco’s Director of Software Engineering, Adam Schaible described the product: “Omega DevCloud is a web-based REST/JSON API built on a hardened bi-directional M2M communication core that supports both TCP and UDP protocols. It’s as easy as sending device traffic to us and telling us what your API should look like. From there, you can send and receive device data with simple web services.” Using standardized communication protocols, Omega DevCloud takes any data infrastructure and translates it into a common web language, allowing support […]

Report Scheduler http://www.racowireless.com/report-scheduler/ http://www.racowireless.com/report-scheduler/#comments Mon, 14 Jul 2014 22:41:46 +0000 http://www.racowireless.com/?p=4863 It’s time to automate your success with the new scheduling tool in Omega Management Suite 3.0.  OMS 3.0 does a lot of things really well, but one of the best tools is the Report Scheduler. This new tool allows you to automate customized reports for almost any parameter in OMS, have the report sent out in PDF or CSV format, and then select the cadence of the reports. A little setup in the beginning will go a long way to save you time in the future. First, you can create reports which will tell you what you want to know, when you want to know it, in order to effectively manage your SIMs. To create a report, you will go and find the data and information you are looking for. The easiest way to do this is to go to the Reports tab and select a category from the left column (ie. Usage History, Top Talkers, Cost Vs Usage) and then filter in or out any other pertinent data. (Hint: if you have your SIMs tagged you can filter for specific tags and customers to get their usage every month which might help for billing.) Once you have narrowed this information down, it’s now time to click the Apply button and get your actual data. If this all looks correct, hop up to the top right portion of the page and click on the icon that looks an opened envelope with a calendar bursting out of it. Congratulations, you are now ready for the next really great feature of the new Report Scheduler.

It’s time to automate your success with the new scheduling tool in Omega Management Suite 3.0.  OMS 3.0 does a lot of things really well, but one of the best tools is the Report Scheduler. This new tool allows you to automate customized reports for almost any parameter in OMS, have the report sent out in PDF or CSV format, and then select the cadence of the reports. A little setup in the beginning will go a long way to save you time in the future.

First, you can create reports which will tell you what you want to know, when you want to know it, in order to effectively manage your SIMs.scheduler 1

  • To create a report, you will go and find the data and information you are looking for. The easiest way to do this is to go to the Reports tab and select a category from the left column (ie. Usage History, Top Talkers, Cost Vs Usage) and then filter in or out any other pertinent data. (Hint: if you have your SIMs tagged you can filter for specific tags and customers to get their usage every month which might help for billing.) Once you have narrowed this information down, it’s now time to click the Apply button and get your actual data. If this all looks correct, hop up to the top right portion of the page and click on the icon that looks an opened envelope with a calendar bursting out of it. Congratulations, you are now ready for the next really great feature of the new Report Scheduler.

At this point, you should be getting pretty excited at how easy this is going to make your SIM reporting life. Now I want to introduce you to the exporting of a report in the format of a PDF or CSV.scheduler2
This will let you get the report in a final printable manner as a PDF or receive the data in a CSV format letting you mine through the data even further and creating more customization.

  • At this stage in the process you can select as many recipients as you want that will receive the report, and then title it appropriately. You can always edit the name later so don’t worry too much if it’s not the right title at first. This is where it gets fun. You can choose to have the report sent out as a finalized PDF or pick a CSV file which lets you manipulate and mine for further data. Pretty easy, right?

scheduler3

The third exceptional feature that Report Scheduler offers comes right after you decide on the format of the report – selecting how often, how many times, and if the report will continue indefinitely. You can even narrow down to a specific day of the week. Once you have chosen the scheduled occurrence, you are all set! Now sit back and wait for the report to generate on its own while you relax (or, probably work on the next task on your endless to-do list).scheduler4

After you have successfully scheduled your report, you can always go back into the Report Scheduler tab and make additional tweaks.

If you still have questions after reading this, fear not, because when you go into the scheduler for the first time you will have the option to launch a Tour which will give you step by step instructions.
