Microchip M2M Development Platform for CDMA
Microchip Machine-to-Machine (M2M) Development Platform for CDMA allows remote devices to communicate with each other or with a central server over one or more communications networks. M2M is commonly used to monitor or control devices deployed at remote locations without the need of human assistance. M2M is used in a wide variety of applications, such as utility meters, asset tracking, robotics, supply chain management and many others. The Microchip M2M Development Platform for CDMA uses the Verizon Wireless cellular network to communicate with a cloud-based server. Cellular-based technology is ideal for M2M, as it can provide a common communication pathway for remote and mobile devices to exchange information. The Microchip M2M platform provides a variety of sensors and communications technologies to interface with remote devices. The platform sends and receives data to and from a cloud-based server through the CDMA cellular network. The server is accessed by the user through a web portal that can be customized to an individual user's needs. Through the web portal, the user can display, analyze and download data collected by the M2M platform, and send commands to the platform to control remote devices.
