Advanced Edge Data Processing for Industrial Sectors


IOTech edge central


Factory and process manufacturers are embracing industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and edge compute solutions to help access and optimize data between operational equipment and control systems. These systems need to reliably aggregate data from many sources, but managing numerous endpoints, such as industrial sensors, machinery, PLCs (to name a few) can be challenging.


Ideal for systems integrators (SIs) and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), IOTech and Advantech developed a new range of integrated edge hardware + software solutions to address these data challenges.


Incorporating IOTech Edge Connect™ plug-and-play edge software and Advantech IoT edge gateways and high-performance IPCs, the edge bundle provides base infrastructure for autonomous decision-making and real-time asset/process monitoring, and creates unified networks and systems through vertical and horizontal integration.


Data Connectivity & Edge Processing Solutions

The combined IOTech + Advantech solutions address the following commercial and technical challenges:

  • Cuts down technology complexities, which may require costly integration
  • Leverages latest advances in edge computing and Industry 4.0 standards
  • Alleviates system siloes that are difficult to maintain and costly to evolve
  • Acquires data from copious data points in real-time with low latency
  • Aggregates plant data from multiple sources, offering application visualization of data
  • Supports both Greenfield and Brownfield sites and equipment
  • Helps integrate SCADA/Cloud/IT systems for remote management and access, with reliable security

The IOTech Edge Connect software solution enables users to create data-driven industrial applications, add rule based event detection/reaction, integrate data dashboards, and leverage advances in artificial intelligence (AI), analytics, and inferencing technologies.
