Advantech and Stratus Partner up to Provide Fault-tolerant Solutions for the Industrial Edge
Rapid advances in industrialization and informatization methods have drove tremendous progress in the development of next generation manufacturing technology, and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) has given rise to the emergence of Industry 4.0, Intelligent Transportation System (ITS), and iRetail. For IIoT businesses, non-stop automation and real-time processes are an integral part of their solutions. However, the transformative benefits offered by IIoT technology mean that system reliability and fault-tolerance have become critical because even a minute of downtime can cause huge losses and pose real threats to security. So Industrial IoT systems needs to be running 24/7 and with zero downtime.

During this 2-day event, Stratus will share their co-created solution application in one-on-one meetings in both English and Chinese.
There has been a recent upsurge in the IoT sector, especially in IIoT and Industrial 4.0, so both Advantech and Stratus sought a mutually beneficial partnership while independently providing technology services.
