The Journey to Creating Switch Always On

Frequent connectivity issues​

Switch Always On was born out of a real-world challenge faced during the deployment of industrial IoT battery charging equipment across multiple manufacturing and distribution facilities in the US. To establish cloud connectivity, access points consisting of enterprise WiFi routers and backhaul cell modems were used. However, during deployment, frequent connectivity issues arose, including WiFi router or cellular modem hangups, power outages, dips, firmware or hardware glitches in networking devices, and disruptions, which required sending technicians to the sites, resulting in costly and prolonged connectivity outages.

All-In-One Solution

To solve these challenges, we explored various solutions such as UPS devices, but they lacked the ability to recycle networking devices. AC UPS devices were too large for compact cabinets, and remote IP AC switches lacked backup batteries to maintain connectivity during power outages. To address these issues, we developed an All-In-One Solution tailored explicitly to our unique needs. We envisioned a compact device that could provide backup power to networking devices during power outages, safeguard them from power surges and dips, continuously monitor connectivity, and restore connections through automated and self-healing power reboots.

Remote Power Control & Reliable Connectivity Evolves

This vision materialized as the Switch Always On – a game-changing product transforming how we deliver remote power control and ensure reliable connectivity.
 
Switch Always On empowers businesses to remotely manage their equipment and maintain smooth operations, eliminating the need for on-site technicians.
 
Switch Always On stands as evidence of our dedication to addressing real-world challenges by offering compact yet robust solutions for remote power control. Our aim is to enhance operation and connectivity, safeguard unattended kiosks and networking devices, and eliminate costly downtime.
