The AgentG3 - a modular family

Pervasive Agents are remote telemetry, monitoring and control devices that come pre-integrated with the Pervasive Portal. An AgentG3 incorporates sensor interfaces and control, bluetooth deployment and local access, onboard power, and a link to the cloud via secure cellular communication.

Each AgentG3 is tailored to your application using the optimal selection of modular building blocks from the selection below. These are fully assembled and pre-integrated at the factory, and supplied ready to be up and running in minutes.
