Easy-to-use TOSIBOX® allows global remote access to hundreds of sites for gym equipment manufacturer

Tosibox Oy, the globally operating, leading provider of industrial connectivity solutions, together with the ICT service solution provider Canorama Oy offered Ab HUR Oy a state-of-the-art solution for IoT connectivity and access management. The patented TOSIBOX® technology is also scalable to the needs of global business.

HUR manufactures pneumatic strength training equipment and delivers it on a global scale. Their training equipment was connected, but the clumsy remote desktop tools and VPN solutions with complex configurations needed to be replaced with an easy-to-use and fast connectivity solution. Tosibox and Canorama joined forces, offering HUR a next-generation technology, which allows connections to be set up on the spot, with just a couple of clicks.

HUR handles the maintenance and repairs of fitness machines on behalf of its customers. These days TOSIBOX® Lock 150 is pre-installed in the machines and activated once they arrive at their destination anywhere in the world.

”Prior to TOSIBOX®, our solutions were offline installations, and therefore difficult to connected. In our global operating environment, time difference, for example, brought about challenges, and setting a time window for opening connections was quite cumbersome. TOSIBOX® will facilitate our maintenance activities long into the future,” says Hannu Rauhala, R&D Manager at HUR.

TOSIBOX® Virtual Central Lock was installed in the Canorama data center, which allows HUR to manage user access rights in a centralized manner. Adding a new user to an access group is nifty; just drag and drop, and local maintenance personnel can be granted limited access to certain specific machines only.

”TOSIBOX® is an easy and reliable solution with a simple operating logic that stays intact as the equipment base expands. We are engaged in a close cooperation with our customers and Tosibox to be able to offer the best possible support,” says Markku Ylitalo, ICT Service Manager at Canorama.

”It is a global trend that everything goes digital with more and more devices connected to the Internet, gym equipment being no exception. Remote access is today’s reality, and connectivity must by no means hamper the operations. It is our vision to change the world by simplifying secure digital connections,” says CEO Jarno Limnéll of Tosibox.
