This light of hope is RMS Connect. Using RMS Connect, you don’t need to assign a public IP address to your devices or host your service with a public IP address in order to enable remote management. Instead, you can use a private IP address alongside RMS Connect to establish and maintain a secure connection to your remote Teltonika Networks and third-party devices. Doing so keeps your solution’s architecture simple, and lets you keep maximum control over your network as you remotely monitor and control your devices. Best of all, this tool is already integrated into RMS, so you don’t need to worry about additional installations.
If you’re wondering whether using RMS Connect is the best fit for your solution, let’s have a look at a couple of use cases in which such a remote connection is possible. First is a self-service parcel terminal use case that relies on a fleet of our RUT950 high-performance industrial router alongside RMS Connect for establishing and maintaining remote management and maintenance capabilities. With RMS Remote Desktop for accessing the terminals’ user interface, SSH for connecting to the main computer, and HTTP for accessing the IP camera, any form of on-site management or maintenance became a last resort rather than standard procedure – all with the security of a private IP.
Another example is a centralized vending machine POS system use case, in which RMS Connect’s SSH protocol support was used to establish secure remote communication with banking card terminal for IT firmware updates in a remote POS system. Lastly, in a use case involving remote calibration and control of smart traffic light, our partner from Cyprus, M.K. Traffic Technical Solutions Ltd., used our RUT240 router alongside RMS connect for providing third parties with secure remote access to the traffic lights’ controller, in order to make needed adjustments and calibration before launching this product.
Security and simplicity shouldn’t be negotiable for your remote solution – not when RMS Connect can guarantee them.
