Talk2M server architecture is fully redudant with 3 different hosting providers geographically distributed in a way to maximize resilience & separated access servers and VPN servers for an optimized roll-out mechanism.
Mobile platform compatibility
Talk2M is fully compatible with all mobile devices thanks to M2Web. M2Web is a standard service of Talk2M providing secure browser-based mobile access to your remote HMI, web server, PC and panels.
Talk2M support all communication technologies. No matter which communication method is used (LAN, ADSL, 2G, 3G, 4G, LTE, WiFi, etc.), Talk2M will always offer the same user experience and same tools.
Within eCatcher, the remote access client of Talk2M, users are able to access their eWON devices after a credentials check in a single click. Talk2M and eCatcher helps to manage eWON devices and users into groups. The Talk2M PRO account provides a powerful access control process available through eCatcher. Talk2M PRO account administrator can easily grant access rights to a user or users group for a complete site or to a single device. This allows restrictive access to what is really required and thus avoids errors or unwanted remote actions. With the Talk2M PRO, three engineers can establish a concurrent eCatcher connection at the same time.
