Connect & Collect

Connect, Communicate, Manage and Trust in your Generated Big Data

Altair’s Carriots AEP platform database stores hundreds of terabytes of data with high transactional capabilities. Easily access your data with PUSH and PULL strategies through APIs. Write and execute rules with scripts with the App Engine, and combine them with a complete SDK to execute actions in your app.

  • Onboard devices and sensors directly to our platform as an end-to-end IoT solution on our cloud infrastructure, on-premises or preferred cloud services provider.

    • Carriots – Platform as a Service designed for Internet of Things projects. Carriots lets users collect & store data from connected devices, build powerful applications, deploy and scale from prototypes to thousands of devices.
  • Depending on the application and environmental constraints, Altair offer solutions – according to protocols and networks technologies - to analyze connectivity, define best sensors networks, path losses, probability of failure of nodes, etc.

    • WinProp™ – Signal propagation and network planning

    • solidThinking Activate™ – Model-based development for connected devices and complex systems

  • The IoT chain performance can be increased with quick modeling and simulation of end-to-end communication systems, and enabling radiations exposure safety studies.

    • FEKO – Radiation emission and immunity performance, EMC regulations

Manage & Decide

Altair’s scalable environment for application development and business systems connection. Develop applications directly on our platform to manage your data and devices by establishing complex rules and setting up your own PUSH and PULL strategies. Build comprehensive and customize control panels in any language to manage the application. Connect and Interact seamlessly with external business systems, including ERP, CIS, CRM solutions through standard REST API and web services.

  • Carriots Analytics™ – A cloud data analytics platform for Big Data and IoT Applications. It provides fast free-form data exploration, scalable reporting throughout the enterprise and is an easily embeddable solution with an open architecture.
