  • Design and Management of the Development of an IoT Portal for a Network Company

    This solution is used by a company's customers to manage remote devices, collect data from devices, and act upon the collected data.

    Example: The customer that has multiple irrigation facilities that can be activated remotely can decide to activate them all in once or grouped by geo locations. Based on water consumption or weather, the user can choose to reduce or increase water usage or detect potential problems such as water licks.

    This solution uses a React multilayered application with Redux state management. For back-end implementation, I used Java microservices with a Restlet framework for API management.

    Since this application can also manage the end user's resources, it has to be very secure, therefore I used a two-factor authentication system and best currently-known security practices such as Salted hashed password and redundant session management with Redis.
