You can decide what level of autonomy your customers should have, i.e., if they manage their own data, devices or users. Beacon Tower can be white-labelled in multiple layers. This allows you, for example, to provide Beacon Tower as a platform for your OEM devices.
Escape vendor lock-in
Beacon Tower has no hardware or software requirements and connects to any producer of PLCs, DCS, SCADA, ERP and MES to gain maximum hardware and software flexibility and prevent vendor lock-in.
The core IoT-functionality of Beacon Tower utilises core Microsoft Azure components, but our flexible architecture means that you can even exchange our Beacon Tower SaaS front-end with yours running on-premise, AWS, Google or any other technology vendor of your choosing.
Flexible and open data model
The Beacon Tower platform is built around secured, self-managed components which enable flexible ways of allowing external services to interact with the platform, as long as they are properly authenticated. This means you can build your own front-end and apps, fully replacing the Beacon Tower GUI for your customers, or that you can integrate Beacon Tower directly into your ERP and production systems.
