Network and asset monitoring that works in real-time – regardless of device vendors.
Trust the performance of your wireless network as your environment and data requirements evolve.
3D-P commits to the success of its customers way beyond deployment of their wireless network. Deploying and maintaining wireless networks that evolve with your environment while supporting an ever-growing list of safety, productivity, and asset health applications can be challenging. Visualization of network and assets performance can play a large part in understanding the current challenges as well as your network ability to handle changes in topology and additional data requirements. This is especially true for autonomous haulage requiring an extremely reliable wireless network for smooth operations.
3D-P’s Smart Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, including edge computing on the Intelligent Endpoint, enable real network monitoring from the client’s perspective. 3D-P Insight and Network Performance Analysis Toolkit (NPAT) are proprietary tools that allow you to monitor your network performance and assets from the edge – ensuring you have consistently real-time access to the data so critical to your business.
Monitor your IP-based assets with 3D-P’s Insight.
Insight provides full visibility and alerting on the performance of your IP-based assets. From radios to telecommunication infrastructure, software to remote pumps, trailers, etc. Insight provides spatial visualizations designed to report and alert on a set of pre-defined critical parameters or business rules.
When you use Insight, you have a better picture of your assets – not just your network. Insight allows you to track asset locations, identify performance gaps and review performance metrics. And Insight is device agnostic, so you can use it for all your devices.
Insight can also monitor serial based applications when you’re using the Hornet or Osprey.
Test the performance of your wireless network with NPAT.
Developed as a modular toolkit, the NPAT data collector provides you with the ability to see the performance of your wireless network like a truck travelling around a mine would see or experience it. The NPAT runs a number of active and passive performance tests directly on the IEP. These tests include ICMP pings of varying size, upstream and/or downstream UDP/ TCP throughput, connectivity, neighbor tables, roaming time and location, connected vs. available AP’s, and more. Each test can be run on its own interval, allowing measurement of your network performance parameters with as much granularity as required.
When your data is collected directly on the mobile equipment, the performance reported provides a true representation of each mobile client’s experience on the network. The collected data is geo- and time-referenced. When you integrate this collected data with the IEP’s store and forward capabilities, you can collect as much performance data as required and can offload it when and where desired – reducing potential impact on the performance of your network.
NPAT visualizations are map-based with specific viewing filters that can be applied to provide meaningful context around the parameters that affect the performance of your network.
3D-P’s Insight and NPAT provide real intelligence that simplifies maintaining network performance as your mine changes, ensuring the network meets your requirements for connectivity and data.
