Bondix Newsletter 2/2024

Mixing one's wines may be a mistake, but old and new wisdom mix admirably.

Bertolt Brecht


After long months of planning, discussing, bargaining and talking, it has finally been done: All things Bondix no longer belong to Azur Investment Group, but to newly founded SIMA GmbH, seated in Germany and headed by our very own Martin Santner and Simon Ley! Read more about this MBO, as well as about the Teltonika Tech Summit in Warszaw at which we gave a presentation and talked to so many people last week, a great relaunch of a Bondix distributor’s website, saveworthy dates and, of course, release notes of our newest Bondix version 1.24.1 in this newsletter!

Bondix® is now part of SIMA GmbH!

 

We are delighted to announce that Bondix®, the leading brand of manufacturer-independent bonding software, has been part of SIMA GmbH since the start of the year. Bondix® was introduced in 2019 under the leadership of Bondix Intelligence B.V., a daughter of Dutch Azur Investment Group.


Without Azur Investment, we would never have come this far, so we’d like to express our thanks at this point. Christian Westers believed in us and, with Roderick Toutenhoofd, Tom Kroese, and Ruud Egberts, provided us with the right experts at the right time to build up the Bondix brand and make it known in the market. Our Martin Santner and Simon Ley have fulfilled a lifelong dream with the founding of SIMA GmbH and the management buyout of Bondix®.


Roles will stay the same: In addition to new executive tasks, Martin will take care of sales and business development, and Simon will tend to all rather technical matters. Sylvia Ploch will also stay in the core team to ensure smooth operation and rip-roaring marketing.


These are the most exciting times for us because we’re now leveraging our experience from our time at Bondix Intelligence B.V. to make Bondix a global player with the help of SIMA GmbH and new strategic partners. Let the journey begin!

 

Review Teltonika Tech Summit 2024, Warsaw

 

The Teltonika Networks Warsaw Tech Summit concluded last Thursday evening after a full day of engaging sessions. The agenda included multiple presentations on Teltonika Networks systems, a live demo of an awesome new Bondix-in-a-box solution SpeedFi containing a RUTX12 by our Martin Santner, and insights into QuWireless solutions for Teltonika's product range shared by Kamil Stalica, another Teltonika partner.


Additionally, the event featured over 8 diverse workshops that sparked lively discussions and provided clients with the opportunity to address potential project challenges. Attendees also had the chance to test their knowledge and speed in the Teltonika Configuration challenge, focusing on configuring or fixing configurations on Teltonika units.


The summit wrapped up with a presentation on the Teltonika Roadmap, accompanied by discussions about the market's needs and necessary solutions.


Like the first Teltonika Tech Summit 2023 in Vilnius, Lithuania, this event proved to be such a booster for us. We were able to get in contact with so many important Teltonika partners in such a short time - so thank you, Teltonika Networks, for having us, and we're looking forward to the next Teltonika Tech Summit!

Bondix Release Notes

1.24.1

 

Our developers work on our Bondix software incrementally which means that bug fixes, improvements, and even new features are constantly added, producing new release versions every couple of days.


On a quarterly basis, we publish a version that combines all changes added since the last version.


This Release Version 1.24.1 contains the following changes:


Teltonika RUTOS-related changes
  • Support for RutOS 07.06.3 has been added.

  • The QoS editor has been redesigned and is now nearly identical to the editor known on the server.

  • The ability to add/remove interfaces used for bonding was removed. Instead, all available WAN interfaces are always accessible for more straightforward configuration.

  • Handling when dealing with multiplexed modem connections was improved.

New Features
Bandwidth limit per environment

Until now, a Bondix instance could only be set to a bandwidth profile based on the activated license, e.g. 20 Mbps licenses needed to be bound to one instance, 100 Mbps licenses to another. With this new Bondix version, you can create different environments for different bandwidth profiles on a single server instance. This means, on a Bondix instance that is licensed for e.g. 200 Mbps bandwidth per tunnel, you can now create different environments with specific bandwidth limits per environment that are equal or lower to 200 Mbps.


Please keep in mind that environments’ bandwidth limits are limited themselves by the highest throughput the instance is licensed for. In this example, this means you couldn’t create an environment with a bandwidth limit of 500 Mbps because the instance is licensed for 200 Mbps.


Import & Export of QoS settings

With this Bondix version, you can now import and export your QoS settings for easier bulk management.

Improvements
Bug Fixes
