  4. 4. UniSVR Global Information Technology Corp. 3 Original Equipment Manufacturer This reference manual is for:  Companies that integrate our hardware to their products and re-sell them with a different brand and/or model name  Companies that integrate our software to their products and develop their own products  Companies that use our HermesDDS service as part of their offering This reference manual will explain the scope of HermesDDS service and the engagement process.
  5. 5. UniSVR Global Information Technology Corp. 4 Introduction to UniSVR and HermesDDS UniSVR is a software-oriented system company located in HsinChu Science Park in Taiwan. UniSVR has dedicated many years in researching and developing, invented a unique software platform, UniArgus Network-of-Device Platform (or UA NoD Platform). Many different products are derived from this platform. UA NoD Platform consists of an application-level software engine and many modules with real-time multi-tasking and multi-thread processing capability so that the target application systems can create a private cloud environment and provide:  Connecting and managing large number of devices of various types, different brands and models through local area network
  6. 6. UniSVR Global Information Technology Corp. 5  Real-time information capturing (from the devices), processing, storing and dispatching to other devices and authorized clients (UA NoD Platform is particularly fine tuned to handle large number of live-video streams from many sources to many users)  Event-Action Sequencing Module (EME, Event Message Exchange)  Real time event notification  Vital and useful management features on clients and on devices With more than a decade experience in UA NoD platform, UniSVR has deep know-how on how to build a stable large system for private cloud service. HermesDDS, Hermes Device Directory Service, is another cloud service provided by UniSVR based on UA NoD experience. It helps users connect and share devices via Internet. HermesDDS software transforms an offline device into a “HermesDDS-ready device”, which means the device is recognizable and connectable under HermesDDS service. UniSVR has developed a large variety of HermesDDS software that supports different kind of electronic device such as Android mobile phone. The software as an application service makes users’ day to day life much more convenient. Users can share and remote control their electronic devices from another location. UniSVR is still in progress of developing more software to be capable of more electronic devices.
  7. 7. UniSVR Global Information Technology Corp. 6 HermesDDS Opportunity The world is now highly demanding cloud service, as the number of smart devices is increasing drastically and the Internet coverage is expanding. Smart devices can be in different forms, and no longer limited to computers, smart phones or tablets. Broadband Internet speed is getting faster and faster; mobile Internet is getting more and more stable. This means the Internet environment is mature enough to support connecting devices through Internet. Marketing Trend Figure 1 shows the number of smart phone subscription, percentage of smart phone to mobile phone subscription and smart phone subscription growth in thirty countries. Figure 1 Smartphone global subscription statistics (Source: 2013 Internet Trends, http://www.kpcb.com/insights/2013-internet-trends) Smart phones are becoming more and more popular and it is not stopping. The
  8. 8. UniSVR Global Information Technology Corp. 7 rate of growth is faster than when television first came out. Figure 2 shows the technology cycle is becoming shorter. And besides smart phones, there are many forms of devices that can go “online”. Devices can come in many forms such as wearable computers, wearable sensors, flyable computers, drivable computers and beyond. Figure 2 Technology cycles over last 70 years (Source: 2013 Internet Trends, http://www.kpcb.com/insights/2013-internet-trends) The hardware is developing quickly and transforming to the forms that we did not use to imagine. Internet is improving at a speed that allows massive data flow around the world. Figure 3 shows the number of Internet users is increasing, some country such as Iran, the growth is more than double in a year. Using Internet is almost a daily activity to a lot of people.
  9. 9. UniSVR Global Information Technology Corp. 8 Figure 3 Statistics of Internet users (Source: 2013 Internet Trends, http://www.kpcb.com/insights/2013-internet-trends) Moreover, mobile Internet is getting better. Forty-five percent of the world’s population is now covered by a 3G mobile network (required for fast mobile Internet access), according to the ITU (2011). 3G networks have been launched in 159 countries. Some countries such as Sweden, Norway, Ukraine and United States are already moving to 4G. Ericsson (June 2012) forecasts that, by 2017, 85 percent of the world’s population will be covered by high-speed mobile networks. The WiFi environment is very advanced and suitable to make the world “connected”. The demand is surpassingly increasing and the environment is very practical. The market is at its highest potential now and the time to act is now. All these trends, together with our HermesDDS capability and evolution, construct fundamentals of the Internet of Things. Please refer to Figure 4, we can find the road map of the Internet of Things is toward “ability to monitor and control distant objects” (upper-rightmost block), which ability has been shown in our HermesDDS demo channel (P. 13, UShow experience).
  10. 10. UniSVR Global Information Technology Corp. 9 Figure 4. Technology Roadmap: The Internet of Things (Source: SRI Consulting Business Intelligence, 2008) HermesDDS Strength UniSVR has been dedicating many years in research and development in the field of clouding network, such as our clouding network service HermesDDS. HermesDDS overcomes many firewall and IP setting problems. HermesDDS allows users to connect and to manage large number of devices of various types, different brands, and models. It can provide real-time information capturing (from the devices), processing, storage and dispatching to other devices and authorized clients. In short, HermesDDS helps users  Connect devices easily: no firewall and floating IP troubles  Share devices easily: with user friendly interface  Control remote objects easily: with standard serial port devices  Protect your privacy: it is your own cloud and we just help connection
  11. 11. UniSVR Global Information Technology Corp. 10 In Depth about HermesDDS Private Cloud System Solution (PCSS) UniSVR has proposed and implemented an integrated Private Cloud System Solution (PCSS) that includes eight system building blocks (SBB): 1. Network Equipment (NTE) 2. Broadband Internet Service (BIS) 3. Client Display Device (CDD) 4. Network Edge Device (NED) 5. Server Device 6. Gateway Device 7. Client Application Software (CAS) 8. HermesDDS Service The first four SBBs are user’s infrastructures and devices. The last four ones are provided by UniSVR. Among the last four, Server Device, Gateway Device and Client Application Software encapsulate our unique HermesDDS software components; and HermesDDS service handles communication and connection services behind the scene. Each SBB cooperate with other ones to maximize its function and to satisfy user’s need. Four Services in HermesDDS The core of HermesDDS is doing device directory service. Devices include the Gateway Device and the Server Device as described in PCSS Framework. Device registered with HermesDDS service is often referred to as HermesDDS Device or HermesDDS cloud-ready device. HermesDDS provides four services: Member and Device registration service, Member and device directory service, within-the-net service and across-the-net service. 1. The Member and Device Registration Service New users are invited to join our free membership to experience our service. New membership registration requires an active e-mail account and a password.
  12. 12. UniSVR Global Information Technology Corp. 11 A registered member can register his/her devices (either Server Device or Gateway Device) with the service. The registered device usually refers to as HermesDDS device. Registered members can use our service through using other member’s sharing device (general user) or register his/her device (device administrator) for personal use or share to other members. Members can build contact with other members on our application panel or Android app’s contact list. Standard digital electronic products in the market are not designed for HermesDD Service (and not for used over Internet in most cases). These products will need UniSVR’s Gateway Devices, either hardware or software, to be used with HermesDDS Service. 2. The Member and Device Directory Service Member and device directory service allows users to track the online status of their contacts and the accessibility of their HermesDDS devices. Unlike other service providers, UniSVR does not require to input the IP address of the HermesDDS device nor the contact. With the device directory service, devices are automatically searched and connected, the user can just use them. 3. Within-the-Net Service Within-the-net service refers to the service within a local area network (LAN). Member can access an online HermesDDS device or contact within the same LAN, and it is completely free. 4. Across-the-Net Service Across-the-net service refers to the service crossing over the LAN and all over Internet. Across-the-Net Service supports following application scenarios:  Member can connect to device from other network  Member can connect to shared HermesDDS device from other network  Gateway Devices can connect to Server Devices from other network Six Elements in HermesDDS 1.
