Healthcare

High-quality medical care at affordable cost is among the greatest challenges. M2M applications working on mobile network in healthcare sector multiplies the supply density of medical services, facilitating treatment also in remote rural regions. Medical equipment like magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography machines are becoming a standard in every hospital. Significant increase of the medial equipments in use makes a big impact on maintenance and service cost for their producers. Producer wanted to guarantee better profit by improving service and reducing mediacl equipments maintenance costs. RICON came across the challenge and delivers reliable, secure and remote monitoring and management system for mediacal equipments solution with

  • Highly-available communications;
  • Maximum uptime value to minimize downtime risk;
  • Utilizing the latest in state-of-the-art wireless networks technologies;
  • Easily and seamlessly upgradeable to new technologies, if desired.

RICON provids networking solutions based on xDSL or 3G/4G technologies. 3G mobile network gives a great flexibility in cases where medical equipments are install on remote/rural location with no landlines available. Only mobile signal is needed then. Moreover, RICON solution goes with the future technologies’ changes in mind. System working on the cellular mobile network can be easly upgraded from 3G to 4G, only module replacement is needed and no additional changes on the system is required. RICON solution also guarantees security and privacy on the network, provided remote managment software and custom scripting.

Portfolio of RICON products and services enables to deploy secure and robust wireless network. Embracing connectivity usuing wireless 3G and 4G technologies our Customers benefit from reliable network even in the most remote, hazardous locations. RICON team cooperates closely with Customers to provide them with a most suitable application. RICON has experience and know-how which we would like to share with you.

RICON routers are extremely easy to use and slimly configured using build in graphical user web interface (GUI) or by using RICON M2M Management Platform system. RICON M2M Management Platform is where the power of managing RICON routers all comes together. This Platform centralizes access to all remote nodes, giving the user ultimate management control over the hardware. RICON M2M Management Platform system provides full control over data transfer and network diagnostics of thousands of routers and mobile devices on the network. Remote accessibility to the RICON M2M Remote Management Platform from any location gives the user fingertip control over multiple devices allowing the user to assess, diagnose, manage, control and resolve any problem within a very short period of time. RICON M2M Remote Management Platform provides extreme reduction in the unpredictability of managing a large network cluster of routers which drastically improves responses to downtime during any crisis. Platform has a major impact on the cost of ownership, allowing redistribution of other valuable resources.

Authentication interface. You can easly access the platform by using Internet browser. Through the user login authentication interface enter user login authentication dateils.

Terminal -> Terminal List Tab is the list of all authorized terminals registered to the platform. It shows up-to-date information regarding each terminal including agent id, terminal id, IP as well as terminals’ operational data: online-offline status, network signal strength, network type, SIM in use, data flow, firmware version in use, terminal location (see the view below).

 

Terminal -> Terminal Detail Tab represents a summary of single terminal along with network details. It is also a link to other pagers related to terminal and network management and monitoring (see the view below).

 

Terminal -> Modify Parameter Tab enable user to configures terminal parameters remotely (see the view below).

Terminal -> Real-time Alarm & Alarm Record Tabs represent  a summary of the resent SLA alarms on the terminals (see the view below).

Terminal -> Alarm List Tab divides the alarm terminal based on alarm type (Availability, Packet loss, Signal, Out of service, Cell switch, SIM switch) and enable their observation in different pages (see the view below).

Terminal -> Search Term Tab provides a fast way to find a certain terminal details. User can search for a terminal based on Agent ID, Location or IP (see the view below).

Terminal -> Daily Alarm Report Tab provides single terminal daily report. User can check terminal network parameter record, including Signal(dBm), Online time(s), Out of service, Network switch, SIM switch, TX flow, RX flow, sim1 flow, sim2 flow, Packet loss, Avg latency, Cell switch (see the view below).

System enables to present reports in graph and excel files (see the view below).

Terminal -> Statistics Tab provides statistic data according to Terminal ID, IP, Version and date, searching the Alarm statistic, result includes (Terminal ID, IP, Version, Availability, Signal, Out of service, Network switch, and SIM switch) - see the view below.

Group -> Terminal Group List & Manage Group Tabs. After terminals registered to platform system user can divide them into groups for convenient management. User create, edit, delete group (see the view below).

 

System -> Set SLA Tab. User can set a certain alarm threshold. If terminal meets any of above SLA parameters, alarm will be triggered and terminal will be listed in 'Alarmed list' (see the view below).

System -> Auto Install Setup Tab. When terminal registers to platform, the platform will send configuration in imported rule to terminal according to terminal serial number. Terminal will be rebooted automatically after it gets parameters, then with new parameters, it will register to platform again and star to work properly (see the view below).

System -> Authorization Tab. User setups legal terminal list (judge by last 16 number of terminal serial number). Platform will judge the legality of a terminal as per the import rule and will move terminals, which don’t fit import rule, into the group of “pendinglist”. User moves authorized terminal from 'pendinglist' to 'Homelist'. If terminal not authorized User moves it from 'pendinglist' to 'blacklist' (see the view below).

System -> Firmware&Patch Tab. User can upload the updated packet of designated path to server, after uploading, the packet can be used to upgrade the terminals remotely (see the view below).

System -> Batch Upgrade Tab. User can remotely upgrade selected terminals. User selects the beginning terminal ID and ending ID, select beginning time, end time and upgrade package. All terminals between the two IDs will be upgraded in the designated time (see the view below).

System -> System Log Tab has recorded terminals remote upgrade, auto install, registration, login in and out, parameter configuration. As per the above log type, terminal ID and time to search the above info record (see the view below).

User -> Add User & User List Tabs. Though the User module user can manage user info, including: adding a new common user, edit user info, delete a common user. Admin has been authorized to manage all users, while a common user can edit his own info.
