Tego Releases Multi-Platform Operating System

Tego has announced the release of TegoOS, an open, multi-platform operating system that adds new capability to Tego's Asset Intelligence Platform (AIP) designed to provide local intelligence on any asset, anywhere. TegoOS now supports all major mobile and desktop operating systems, including iOS, Android, Windows and OS X. This, Tego says, gives manufacturers, distributors and maintenance organizations across the aerospace, life sciences, health-care and manufacturing sectors the ability to deploy scalable solutions for lifecycle and service management, regulatory and process compliance, and authenticity management.

The open OS operates across all RF gateway protocols and handheld readers, according to Tego. It simplifies the process of storing, recalling and communicating the information embedded in a product, component or asset, and makes distributed data about assets more easily available to cloud-based Internet of Things platforms, as well as core enterprise systems, Tego reports, such as enterprise asset management (EAM), enterprise resource planning (ERP), business intelligence (BI) and analytics applications.

TegoOS is the operating system for Tego's AIP, which provides the capability to embed digital information directly in an asset. From product specification and configuration, maintenance and use history, and intended use and compatibility, to process instructions or images, AIP allows distributed data solutions to be installed quickly within small or large environments. This, the company explains, provides line employees with critical operating data and ensures asset data connectivity to devices, IOT platforms and enterprise systems.

According to Tego, TegoOS enables assets to share their data at the point of use by making their origin, authenticity, lifecycle maintenance history or chain of custody available to authorized users. The process of storing data on a physical asset becomes a simple, one push-button activity, and TegoOS provides encryption, compression, and flexible and efficient file management.

TegoOS includes a software library supporting AIP functionality and extensibility that can securely store and retrieve structured or unstructured data directly on any asset via a wireless communications protocol. In addition to the integration capabilities for cloud-based IoT and enterprise systems, it also includes a mobile application for administrators and users with a single, common interface to RF gateway devices, such as those from ThingMagic, Intermec, Zebra Technologies, Impinj and Technology Solutions (UK) Ltd. (TSL), as well as low-level reader protocol (LLRP) gateways.
