EXCITING RMS NEWS: CONNECT & API
In technology, a system is as good as it is constantly updated. In Teltonika Networks, it is at the top of our priority list to make sure that our clients are satisfied. Therefore, we listen to their feedback and work on various developments all the time. Just recently, we made some exciting improvements to our Remote Management System (RMS).
We initially created the RMS to simplify the monitoring of Teltonika Networks routers and gateways. It allows convenient access to our devices from anywhere in the world while guaranteeing the security and reliability of the connection. It ensures our networking products are always reachable and provides event alerts, various reporting options, easy multi-configuration, and convenient firmware updates to any number of devices via FOTA. Now, this functionality will be singled out into one of the RMS family features – RMS Management. Since we introduced the initial version of RMS, it did not take long to notice the demand for another functionality – reaching the end-devices of any solution remotely.
After careful consideration and development process, today, we are happy to introduce RMS Connect functionality. It enables the access and control of non-Teltonika Networks devices via RDP/VNC, SSH, or HTTP(S) protocols without any additional software. It does not require a public IP or a third-party VPN service. The implications of this are massive. With RMS Connect, you can access virtually any smart product that has either Web User Interface based on HTTP(S) or Command Line Interface via SSH tunnels. This includes CCTV cameras, Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs), Point of Sale terminals (POS), Dataloggers, and many more devices responsible for automating and controlling the infrastructure of the public and private sectors. Even better, with RMS Connect, you can set-up a direct secure connection to all equipment compatible with RDP or VNC protocols. With a single Teltonika Networks router, or a gateway, and an RMS account, you can directly access all Windows or Linux machines without Public IP or VPN, just as if you would be sitting in front of them. This opens up immense possibilities for easier and more efficient remote management.
However, the good news does not stop here! Another functionality we just implemented – RMS API – provides a possibility to carry endless RMS features into your in-house IoT platform, in case you would rather stick to your familiar interface. That is probably the biggest beauty of the RMS – you can use whatever you like and leave the rest. It adapts to your particular business needs and your environment. Starting with a user interface, varying methods to reach devices or selecting features, and ending with a pricing model that works best in your business case – you are in control to choose all of it!
With the above changes, we elevated RMS from a device management platform to an IoT platform. But this is just a fraction of a bigger exciting project we are relentlessly working on and will present to you soon! Our future vision for RMS is that each major upgrade turns it into an even more capable platform to monitor, manage, and control every part of your IoT infrastructure.
We would like to take this opportunity to invite you to our online webinar, where we will discuss all the new features and changes in the RMS. You may also check out the updated RMS features on our website.
Feeling curious to try out the system for yourself? Great! We offer a free 30-day trial of RMS Management for anyone buying a compatible Teltonika Networks device!
