Remotely Access IoT Devices

Remote access to IoT Devices


With the explosion of IoT devices running complex edge computing applications, remote debugging & diagnostics get inevitable. Establishing a secured connection and having remote terminal access (SSH, Telnet or VNC) is a must for deployed IoT Edge devices. Examples of these devices could be Raspberry Pis and flavours, Intel NUC boards, mini-computers, NXP – IMX boards, IoT Gateways or Custom boards running either Linux, Android or Windows.

Few of the Use-cases these devices are used in the field ranges from :

  • Industrial IoT
  • Energy Monitoring & Optimisation
  • Intelligent Mobility
  • Smart Retail
  • Drones
  • Smart Parking
  • Facility Management Systems
  • Smart Home
  • Robotics
  • Interactive Kiosks and digital screens
