What do I need for my facility to work with Upkip?

The most important element is to secure connectivity to target assets and line of business systems subject to monitoring and integration. The on-premises software gateway could run on a lightweight Linux(pref Ubuntu 16.4 or later) or Windows (pref. 10 or Server 2016) machines, depending on the requirements of the monitored equipment. The on-premises gateway shall have connectivity to the Internet to push telemetry to the cloud. Finally, yet importantly, a Microsoft Azure cloud subscription for the underlying platform backend can be provided by the integrator, if such is not present (est. cost. 120EUR/month for 10-20 monitored devices and 160EUR/month for 40). Depending on specific requirements some additional services may be required (i.e. subscription to an SMS capable service, external sensors or additional hardware).
