metr’s IoT infrastructure functions like a digital backbone that connects technical systems from different manufacturers. Both new and existing devices such as meters and sensors can be seamlessly integrated into a central system. The data can then be read out remotely at any time.
The key component of the IoT infrastructure is metr’s innovative multifunctional gateway – the m-gate. It currently supports the following protocols: M-Bus, wired M-Bus, OMS, Modbus and AMR and has expandable radio and cable interfaces. Thus it can be easily integrated into existing as well as future systems.
All data is transmitted directly or time-controlled via a protected Internet connection from the multi-protocol capable gateway to the metr building management platform. The m-gate has a wide range of interfaces. For secure and reliable data transmission it can, for example, use an installed DSL/cable connection via Ethernet or the built-in GSM module (4G/LTE). Updates can be installed remotely.
