PlatformConnect is a hosted platform service for receiving, processing and storing of information from GNSS and IoT’s, devices, sensors, applications and third party services. Accessible via an API, PlatformConnect provides a hosted solution that enables organisations to quickly implement and use for their desired purpose.
PlatformConnect is scalable and redundant to meet growing needs. As a hosted solution, organisations can concentrate on collecting and using their data without having the infrastructure cost, technical and administrative overhead associated with designing, building and maintaining a large platform suited for this purpose.

Devices and Sensors
PlatformConnect supports a wide range of devices and sensors. Vendor and device agnostic, PlatformConnect is dedicated to receiving, processing and storing of large amounts of data for later use and analysis. As most devices have special communication and device management needs, GPSengine collaborates with each Manufacturer to add protocol and communication support to their range of devices and sensors.
For each manufacturer a dedicated receiver is developed by GPSengine to effciently communicate with and process large quantity of messages and handle event processing.
Some devices can be fully managed via PlatformConnect, through a feature called provisioning. If a device model has provisioning support, this allows full device management to be performed and automatically updated over the air. A provisioning profile for a specific device configures the device to work as expected for real world use.

Normalisation of Data
PlatformConnect supports a larger number of devices and sensors that provide information in di erent formats. Part of the PlatformConnect feature set is the normalisation of this data. All data queries for devices are returned in this preformatted data to make interpretation and use of this data quick and meaningful.
Connect (Admin Portal)
Connect is a web based administration portal. As most communication is done via the platform’s API, Connect provides an easy to use graphical administration interface that can be used to manage devices, configure devices, access logs and check the status of devices.
Communication with PlatformConnect
For the supported devices and sensors, some settings need to be set as part of the device’s configuration, typically setting values for:
- FQDN (Fully Qualified Domain Name) of the platform/server to communicate with
- Port number
- Protocol Type
Once the device is added to PlatformConnect with a unique identifier, PlatformConnect will accept, process, and store messages and data from the device. Data can then be accessed via the platform’s API.
