IIoT Architectures

Industrial Edge & Cloud Computing

The optimal use of data and connectivity between enterprise systems and the plant floor easily, flexibly and securely offers a wide range of benefits for manufacturers. IT technologies need to play a vital role in IIoT system architectures, with gateways are evolving to provide more flexible, innovative and efficient software solutions.

Focus on Industrial Edge

Edge computing utilizes a distributed computing model to bring processing power and data storage closer to locations in the factory to improve response times, save bandwidth and reduce network latency. Often used in conjunction with cloud computing , it provides companies more flexible and agile capabilities, increases operational efficiency and reduces risks/costs in industrial IoT applications.

From this topology, it is easy to see that the Device Edge through the Compute Edge are applicable to machine and equipment builders.
