e-con Systems designed & implemented a reliable Machine to Machine (M2M) solution for mobile phone tower monitoring based on eSOMiMX6, an NXP-Freescale iMX6 SOM. Read further to know the challenges faced and how the team executed the system. M2M Solution for Cellphone Tower Monitoring​ Customer Requirement: System to monitor several parameters such as, temperature, smoke, power source, door open, diesel level etc. in the cell phone tower and remotely monitor them through cloud. The system should monitor and raise alarm when the values exceeded the threshold limit; it should send a text message to the authorities. Challenges: The main challenge in designing the system started with the electrical & electronics and high noise with ESD & EMI signals. It was very important to design the system in such a way that it could interact with the sensors and at the same time, should not be affected by radiated or conducted electromagnetic disturbance. The system cable faced high ESD & EFT injections & the temperature had to be maintained under 25° to power up the system. Approach: e-con Systems designed an architecture based on eSOMiMX6 system on modules that is highly reliable. The system was proposed to extract the information about the tower & communicate the same with cloud. Amazon cloud based web services was used on the cloud side to monitor various parameters & to send the alerts. Base board implemented with eSOMiMX6 interacted with all sensors, collected the information and same would be transmitted via a GPRS unit or Ethernet or wireless unit. Depending on the availability, system selected one path & EMI/EMC/ESD events protected the path of information collection. Power saving modes was designed keeping in mind product power consumption & the total power used when running in diesel generator. The product was tested in-house with simulated tower environment for 2 weeks (24/7) continuously. All issues were identified and addressed. e-con Systems worked with the customers at all levels to get the necessary certification approval. Conclusion: Customer is now successfully selling the robust product in the market. The tower monitoring business is now highly profitable as breakdowns were brought down to nearly zero

Abstract: Browsers and mobile applications are using WebRTC for audio and video Real-Time Communications (RTC) via simple APIs. The WebRTC components have been optimized to best serve this purpose. WebRTC based web application provides rich, real-time multimedia features (think video chat) on the web, without any plugins, downloads or installs.It’s purpose is to help build a strong RTC platform that works across multiple web browsers, across multiple platforms. iWave has developed WebRTC based Peer to Peer audio and video communication on i.Mx6 Qseven development platform. iWave is using FireFox web browser and its in built webrtc  api’s for the communication. Architecture of WebRTC Detailed Description: iWave’s i.Mx6 Q7 platform has Quad core processor which can operate up to 1 GHz speed/core. i.MX6 CPU is NXP’s latest achievement in integrated multimedia application processors which is part of growing multimedia-focused products that offers high performance processing and are optimized for lowest power consumption. iWave’s i.Mx6 Q7 platform supports 1GB RAM in 64bit mode with eMMC memory of 4GB which can be used both as Mass storage and boot device. i.Mx6 Q7 also supports Ethernet port which is integrated i.Mx6 CPU and connected to the external Gigabit Ethernet PHY on SOM. iWave’s Application consist of two components – clients and server. Peer to Peer communication is done between two clients. Server is used for registering the clients and to keep the necessary set up for two clients to communicate. After setting up, the server is not having any role in the communication. Client Application: Client application is very simple web application using WebRTC to transport audio and video between two clients. The application will enable one client to "dial" the other client and make a video call (with audio).This application only works between two clients. It can be run using Firefox browser Server: The server brokers the initial connection between the two clients. Once a connection is established between the clients, their communication continues in a peer to peer mode: none of the video data is routed through the server. Working Process of WebRTC Peer to Peer communication Audio Codec: Audio codec supported by WebRTC is OPUS codec .OPUS codec Supports constant and variable bit rate encoding from 6 kbit/s to 510 kbit/s, frame sizes from 2.5 ms to 60 ms, and various sampling rates from 8 kHz (with 4 kHz bandwidth) to 48 kHz. The Acoustic Echo Canceler present in WebRTC removes the acoustic echo resulting from the voice being played out into the active microphone. Noise reduction component removes certain types of background noise usually associated with VoIP. Video Codec: Video codec supported by WebRTC is VP8. The VP8 video codec is well suited for RTC since it is designed for low latency. WebRTC has dynamic video jitter buffer for video which conceal the effects of jitter and packet loss on overall video quality. Image enhancement removes the video noise from image captured from camera. WebRTC call: A Screenshot of WebRTC peer to peer audio and video communication Benefits: WebRTC is In-built in Firefox browser. Improved video and audio streaming. VP8 video codec and OPUS audio codec provides much less data transmission without packet loss. WebRTC based Peer to Peer communication can be run from firefox  browser without any plugin or software installation. Audio and Video streaming can be done local networks.
