Salt Lake City September 27, 2002 emWare, a provider of remote device management solutions, this week announced it is offering the EMIT for Distributed Objects framework, which is a collection of EMIT software and services that support a broad range of remote device management solutions.
emWare said that, for developers of embedded software, the EMIT for Distributed Objects framework offers an environment that supports a variety of networking topologies, including peer-to-peer, direct client-to-device, clustered devices, enterprise messaging and protocol bridging. The company also said developers can build solutions that manage local devices through existing networks using TCP/IP carried over Ethernet; communicate securely with individual devices located behind customer firewalls; or manage groups of devices in remote locations using TCP/IP, wireless or serial communications.
emWare claimed that by deploying its technology into real-world solutions companies have the ability to reduce service costs up to 75 percent and introduce new revenue opportunities based on products and services that use the newly available device data. These solutions apply to any type of product from industrial pumps and controllers, to heating and cooling systems, medical devices and home thermostats.
"emWare has developed a flexible remote device management solution that allows companies to implement their solution based on their unique needs instead of having to install a pre-defined system that may or may not meet all of their requirements. The bottom line is, we don't want companies to just have a relationship with their devices, we want companies to be able to manage their devices for profit and benefit from anywhere, at any time, simply and cost-effectively," said Michael Nelson, CEO and co-founder of emWare.
