About The Customer
Artisantech was established in 2004 and focuses on integrating different systems. The company has long been investing in control devices embedded with ARM-based microcomputers, as well as short-range wireless communication software and hardware. It provid
The Challenge

Artisantech was commissioned by the New Taipei City Department of Education to upgrade the energy monitoring and management system in its education center, and to introduce a new server.

The original energy monitoring and management system at the education center runs on a PC-based server. The machine has been worn out from prolonged usage, and is difficult to maintain. As such, breakdowns are common, resulting in frequent disruptions.

There is also the pressing issue of insufficient storage space. As the energy monitoring and management system generates a large amount of data, the education center needs a sufficiently large space to store this data for downstream analysis. Existing storage devices are no longer serviceable and must be replaced. The education center also planned to set up an integrated management platform that facilitates real-time monitoring of various types of energy equipment (such as water meters, electricity meters, and solar panels). This allows them to quickly obtain status updates of various types of energies, allowing them to make use of data and analysis results in their educational guided tours and presentations, to educate the public on the proper usage of energies and impacts of sustainable development on the environment.

Having understood the client’s needs, Artisantech began to plan and improve on the solution. Their strategy was to deploy a central server in the client’s energy monitoring and management system for centralized management of energy devices, and for proper storage of data from various energy sources.

The Solution

Artisantech used a QNAP TVS-471 as a new server in its client’s energy monitoring and management system. It features QNAP’s proprietary IoT private cloud development kit - QIoT Suite Lite - for building IoT apps, as well as monitoring and managing various energy devices. The TVS-471 is powered by an Intel® Haswell processor, and supports SATA 6Gb/s drives and 10GbE networks. This enables the smooth operation of resource-demanding tasks and applications, thereby making it a powerful, highly-reliable, and scalable NAS solution.
