Technology Set



JSON and YANG Models

TypeScript SDK


IEEE 802.11


The project undertaken by Sirin Software for R3 Solutions was aimed at creating a robust and user-friendly front-end interface for managing IoT devices. The interface was designed to serve a range of devices and was particularly tailored for complex configurations.

Interface Design and Usability

The interface serves as the cornerstone of the solution, designed to be visually appealing and functional. 

It was developed using React for its front-end components, offering an intuitive user experience. Tooltips were integrated into the system, providing real-time parameter descriptions and making the system more accessible to users who may not be well-versed in the technicalities of IoT configurations.

Configuration Management

Originally, YAML was chosen for its clarity in representing complex device configurations. However, JSON became the primary format as demands evolved, favored for its adaptability across programming interfaces. The significant shift was the integration of JSON with gRPC commands. This combination allows for efficient communication, enabling quick updates, saves, and restorations of configurations. This efficient system ensures IoT devices, with their detailed settings, can be optimally managed and adjusted as needed.

Parameter Validation and User Input

The system employs JSON representations of YANG models for real-time validation of user input, providing data integrity and operational efficiency. Users receive clear and helpful alerts to correct their information if mistakes are discovered.

Advanced Features and Flexibility

The interface was designed to be highly adaptable, with features like device reprogramming capabilities. 

Real-time changes can be made to device configurations, which are then immediately written over a data API. This is particularly useful for administrators needing to make quick adjustments to device settings. Additionally, a TypeScript SDK is used for specific system operations like device restart and shutdown.

Security Measures

The interface is password-protected, and users are required to change the default password upon initial login. Secure hashing algorithms are employed for password storage, and HTTPS is used for encrypted data transmission.

Additional Functionalities

The interface is highly responsive and designed for real-time monitoring and adjustments. Pending changes are clearly visible, and an “Apply” button is available to write parameters over the data API immediately. The system also includes user-friendly features like a “Review” button and an additional “Apply” button at the bottom of each tab, allowing for easy review or application of changes. If there are pending changes, a text indicator appears under the “Apply” button to provide additional information.

In summary, our solution offers a complete range of features, from basic settings to real-time monitoring, serving as a comprehensive tool for managing IoT devices.

Value Delivered
  • Accelerated Onboarding. The intuitive interface significantly reduced the learning curve for new users. This accelerated onboarding is invaluable in situations where time is directly related to cost savings.
  • Operational Efficiency. Robust parameter validation mechanisms minimized errors and operational disruptions. This led to fewer resources spent on troubleshooting, allowing teams to focus on core business activities.
  • Reduced Downtime. The use of YAML for configuration uploads simplified device management. Its human-readable format allowed administrators to make quick changes, increasing overall operational efficiency.
  • Industry Benchmark. The project set a new standard for IoT device management interfaces, providing a blueprint for future systems. It showcased how a well-designed interface could coexist with robust, real-time data validation mechanisms.
  • Enhanced Security. The implementation of password-protected login screens and HTTPS encryption added an extra layer of security. This safeguards against unauthorized access, protecting sensitive data and maintaining system integrity.
  • User-Centric Design. Accessibility features and tooltips were incorporated to make the system more inclusive and user-friendly. This enhances the user experience, leading to higher satisfaction rates.
