An asset management and operation intelligence platform is one of the crucial components to undertake on the path towards digitization, to speed up data acquisition, processing and analysis processes and translate the Internet of Things into business value.

MangroviaIoT is a modular and multi-level infrastructure that allows, with a compressed time-to-market, to achieve three objectives:
Why is measuring energy consumption so important?
An energy audit – which must be done every 4 years – is currently mandatory only for large and energy intensive companies. It is also strongly recommended for SMEs as well because it allows them to implement measurements and improvement actions in order to understand how to optimize the energy consumption of a plant or an activity. The values based on estimates and calculations – starting from the second cycle of energy diagnosis (indicatively from December 2019) – will no longer be considered valid and it will be necessary to measure a large part of the energy carriers under analysis, providing a real monitoring system. In the Energy Management scenario, MangroviaIoT is the asset management and operational intelligence platform that can monitor the infrastructure in field and acquire the data collected.
A metering platform brings several benefits, not only for those companies whose main goal is energy efficiency, but also for those ones that believe measuring means taking real steps towards achieving their business goals and contributing to the energy transition. In general an IOT platform has several advantages: from the measurement automation to the availability of reliable and detailed data on the consumption updated in real time or as needed, storified for analysis or for predictive activities and simulations, as well as the possibility of setting alarms in critical situations. MangroviaIoT is a scalable and flexible solution, it’s an IoT platform that has fast implementation and it’s low cost, it allows the analysis of punctual or aggregated data, providing geospatial, time or process views. MangroviaIoT is also integrable with any type of sensor (Smart Meters, Smart Room Sensor, Industrial Sensor, Agriculture Sensor) and supports different types of communication protocols (SIM card, LoRaWAN, Via cable..). Even if currently the main use cases are energy intensive companies and energy distributors, the features of MangroviaIoT make it a solution suitable for SMEs that want to optimize their consumption. Photovoltaic, heat pumps, car recharge, cogeneration, energy communities: these are topics at the heart of the energy transition process in which a platform like MangroviaIoT is a particularly useful tool for those who are building plants and want to monitor them over the years – even remotely – to have them under control and optimize their operation.
MangroviaIoT enables a precise and complete control of the field equipment, which is fundamental to ensure the stability of the infrastructure and the consistency of the data collected. It identifies and notifies any transmission problems by representing the information in real time in tabular, graphic and geospatial form:
It is a data collection system that provides automatic monitoring of metrics and allows the analysis of measurements made on time and geospatial dimensions, using different instruments:
MangroviaIoT is the result of many years of experience in software development and advanced analytics in the Enterprise IoT sector, in particular in the Utility & Energy sector for roll-out and management initiatives of large volumes of smart meters. Based on this experience, a product with a bimodal approach has been developed:
for full awareness of the specific needs of the domain and the needs of the business and exercise areas
thanks to the excellent skills in designing, building and managing software according to the guidelines of Modern Application Development
The result is a solution aimed at improving business processes, of fast implementation, scalable and flexible, able to adapt itself to heterogenous contexts.
The MangroviaIoT platform is a group of containerized microservices, developed according to the best practices of Modern Application Development.
Different types of sensors are already supported by MangroviaIoT and thanks to the flexibility of the solution with compressed timing it is possible to connect any type of device and integrate legacy application systems.
The solution has a modern web-based responsive interface disconnected from the back-end infrastructure by means of an API gateway. With simple calls (self-documented) it is possible to obtain any information present and use it in custom mobile apps or insert it in customer and company portals.
Authentication and profiling allow the management of different roles and permissions. The possibility to create homogeneous and heterogeneous user groups and objects allows to replicate various models of organizational structures.
Container implementation and management with an orchestrator for linear scalability (both horizontal and vertical) according to the amount of loads without the need to implement complex architectures in high reliability.
Installation can be performed on physical on-premise hosts, virtualized with Hyper-Visor or in private or public Cloud.
Casi d’uso e partnerships
On the same platform (MangroviaIoT), they also manage smart meters in the electrical field for an energy management use.
These are recognized as the most critical scenarios in terms of energy and economic impact for the foundry industry, as they have direct implications on other production processes in the event of downtime.
