EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

TensorIoT was able to create a solution to reduce Thermo Fisher’s existing edge ecosystem engineering overhead as much as possible.

GOAL

Thermo Fisher needed a more scalable, reliable, and cost-effective solution to achieve these goals and deliver the value of IoT
connectivity to its customers.

RESULTS

Our solution allowed Thermo Fisher to have a consistent way to collect data, get software updates, and alerts using AWS Greengrass and AWS IoT.

Background

Thermo Fisher Scientific is the world leader in serving science, with revenues of more than $24 billion and approximately 70,000 employees globally. Their mission is to enable our customers to make the world healthier, cleaner and safer. Thermo Fisher Scientific helps customers accelerate life sciences research, solve complex analytical challenges, improve patient diagnostics, deliver medicines to market and increase laboratory productivity.

The Challenge

TensorIoT needed to take a device, in the Device Link Hub (DLH), that ran on Thermo Fisher's existing IoT platform and achieve feature parity for functionality including remote data collection, over the air software updates, and alerting using AWS Greengrass and AWS IoT. Specifically, to onboard DLH devices with a mobile app to collect and send data from the edge and to the AWS Cloud for analysis, storage, and monitoring.

The Solution

The Device Link Hub devices would be connected to other types of devices such as refrigerators and freezers by a serial port connection. Using AWS IoT Greengrass as a gateway between the DLH devices and the AWS Cloud, we were able to transmit important telemetry data that indicated whether or not the refrigerators and freezers were behaving as expected. This allowed us to monitor the data that the refrigerators and freezers were generating, enabling a pipeline for alerting/notifications based on thresholds defined by ThermoFisher.
