You set up your Octave edge device to monitor 3 datapoints:
- Groundwater level
- Battery level
You want to log these datapoints every hour but don’t need real-time updates – you’re happy to get the data every 6 hours. With Octave, that will generate 4 messages per day x 30 days x 500 devices = 60,000 messages per month.
On top of that, you want to set up an alert to send a message immediately when any of these values changes by more than 20% in an hour. You expect these alerts to generate an additional 100 messages per month for the entire deployment. That makes a total of 60,100 messages per month.
50 devices will be receiving a 0.5 MB file and 50 devices a 2 MB file each month. This will be 100 file transfers per month, + 5 x 1 MB transfer fee (for the 2 MB file transfers).
Your deployment is in Region A, so your rate is $1 monthly per connected device plus $1 for every 1000 messages, $0.5 per file transfer and $0.25 per MB beyond the 1 MB pooled across devices. Per the table below, this works out to a monthly total of $1060.10 per month, or $2.12 per telemetry system.
