Press release date: March 16, 2012
HMS offers customers free access to the Netbiter Argos remote management service, now available in nine languages.
The cloud-based Netbiter® remote management solution allows users to monitor and control field equipment such as power generators, wind turbines, tanks and other field applications via an office computer, laptop or smartphone. HMS now offers the online data center, Netbiter Argos (www.netbiter.net), as a free service.
By connecting a Netbiter communication gateway to the desired field equipment, it is possible to immediately log into Netbiter Argos, visualize all parameters of the field installation, and control it remotely. Furthermore, as of March 2012, Netbiter Argos is available in nine languages: German, Italian, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese and Japanese. English and Swedish versions are previously available.
Even easier to get up and running
"We are very happy to offer our customers free access to Netbiter Argos," says Henrik Arleving, Product Line Manager, Remote Management at HMS. "This is yet another step in making it easier for users to get up and running with remote management. The new offering will not only save users the subscription costs, but also get them connected faster. The free-of-charge cloud service and extended language support makes Netbiter unique on the market."
How Netbiter works:
Netbiter is a complete package for remote management consisting of three main elements: The first is the physical layer: A Netbiter gateway attached to the remote equipment which sends and receives data. The second is the Netbiter Argos data center that collects and stores the data from the field equipment. This data center offers secure storage of information and enables users to get statistics and reports on the performance of their devices.
The third is secure access to data via an office computer, laptop or smartphone where users see the status of their devices and can monitor and control equipment in a graphical dashboard. Visit www.netbiter.com to read more and try the Netbiter Argos web interface through a demo account.
