Each and every day, we are working to make our operating system – RutOS – more functional, more secure, and easier to use. From the end of May, we are releasing the new firmware, which will include many new features. With the release of RUTOSv2.3, we are taking a first and vital step towards optimization, effectiveness, and utility across our Networks solutions portfolio. This ambition will be achieved by unifying Firmware sources across platforms with an outcome of consistent features, fixes, updates, improvements, and UI elements for every involved device! With RUTOS 2.3 version, the following device families shall have the same firmware sources: all RUT series, TRB14x & TRB2xx series.
You can download the latest firmware from our Wiki RutOS database. Below you will find more information about the features that will be included in our latest RutOS edition:
This is a massive development in I/O element management when you have no boundaries what conditions to define. Before this addition, you were able to send SMS, email, change router profile or activate an output upon the change of the status of an I/O element, but now, with I/O Juggler functionality, you will be able to initiate any script to a router. Also, there’s a possibility to write your script and upload it, which will be activated when the input value changes. Using this functionality, you can set many different rules if an exact sequence of actions happens at a precise time, then it triggers an output. For example, construction sites, if the construction worker goes through a barrier with a sensor between 7:00 AM and 8:00 AM using his RFID card for identification, then an output opens his locker doors.
Separation of Basic and Advanced user profiles
There are many applications in the world of IoT where cellular routers or gateways are needed. Some of them require broad functionality and strong engineering skills, but some require only WiFi or basic configuration. We understand that there is no typical Teltonika Networks device user. A part of our clients are the brightest engineering talents, working in providing connected IoT solutions in mission-critical applications. On the other hand, we are thrilled that our products attract entry-level users who might be utilizing our connectivity devices to improve their lives or kick-start their first IoT solutions. For this reason, we have divided our WebUI into two different tabs – differentiated by user competence. One will be the best fit for essential modifications and configurations of the device, while another one will have a full functionality list for the power user. This change strengthens and reflects on one of our key focus areas for product development – creating devices that are easy to use. We made these UI improvements because we want to keep the broad functionality and full access to complex features while offering simple configuration at the same time.
Basic and Advanced menu tabs will show the biggest difference at the Network tab, where on the “Basic” setting profile, you will already have LAN/WAN set-up, and you will not be able to change it, while on Advanced you will be able to remove or amend those settings. Furthermore, the Advanced tab will offer a possibility to configure VLAN, DNS, Routing functionality.
Data Sender functionality
Almost a year ago, we introduced our new RUTX series routers, with which we have expanded our wireless connectivity type options. The Bluetooth functionality that can be found in our RUTX10 & RUTX11 has opened a possibility to connect them to many different sensors, like temperature, humidity, pressure, and more. Now, with Data Sender functionality, you will have a chance to collect all the parameters, store them in the server of your choice and send them remotely to your cloud using JSON syntaxis when you will need them. Because of this syntaxis, you can choose whatever cloud you want and adapt it to your needs to visualize the parameters collected and sent by our routers. This opens up limitless possibilities to integrate Bluetooth based IoT Solutions with cellular and WiFi connectivity.
Progressive Web Apps (PWA)
Nowadays, everybody is seeking to use their time more efficiently by finding new ways how to optimize the workflow. Because of this, we have created a PWA – progressive web app functionality. PWA enables a possibility to reach your router’s WebUI from your smartphone or computer by simply clicking on an app shortcut in your home screen or desktop. This app shortcut will be generated by linking the address of your router’s WebUI. In this way, you will not need to manually write the IP address in your browser when you want to connect to the router WebUI.
On the 28th of May you can have a unique chance to find out more about our operating system – RutOS, since we are having a webinar. We are going to share insightful information with you, including key features, and will demonstrate the system, which is one of the main reasons, so many businesses around the world choose Teltonika Networks connectivity solutions. So do not hesitate and register for it right now! Link for registration.
