The Problem...

The Industrial IoT, Edge and Fog Computing

The growth in IoT is explosive, impressive and unsustainable under current architectural approaches. Many IoT deployments face challenges related to latency, network bandwidth, reliability and security, which cannot be addressed in cloud-only models.

Edge based architectures are needed to meet these challenges, which provide a hierarchy of elements between the cloud and endpoint devices, and between devices and gateways, all operating in a high performance, open and interoperable way.


Challenges aren’t limited to technology availability; a business model is also needed, which overcomes significant barriers to IoT market adoption, velocity and scale; these barriers include market fragmentation; legacy infrastructure; multiple interoperability standards; IT/OT convergence, security, privacy and compliance.

To realize the benefits of IoT we therefore we need:

  • Technology, which can accelerate Industrial IoT innovation and deployment; software products versus bespoke solutions
  • Standardization to help reduce complexity, provide for transparent interoperability with no vendor lock in
  • A business model which enables rapid innovation and scale out

IOTech’s vision is to build and deploy the pervasive open software defined compute infrastructure for the Edge; a software foundry that helps drive IoT innovation, global adoption, market velocity and scale.

The Solution...

EdgeX Foundry

IOTech’s product vision is to deliver an open, distributed, scalable and secure software-defined compute infrastructure (software foundry), where applications and services can be orchestrated locally across multiple domains, ideally suited for low latency, network-constrained and autonomous applications specifically relevant for Edge and Fog based infrastructures.

The starting point for our vision will be a Linux Foundation Open Source project focused on the Industrial IoT Edge. The EdgeX Foundry community of member companies have a common objective of creating a flexible, platform-independent, highly-scalable and industrial-grade open source edge software platform supported by a rich ecosystem of components that can quickly and easily deliver interoperability between things, applications and services, across a wide range of use cases.

  • EdgeX Foundry is targeted at Edge Gateways to address key interoperability challenges where “south meets north, east and west” in a distributed IoT fog architecture
  • The Platform is also applicable to other “fog” nodes such as hubs, routers, embedded computers and on-premise servers
  • Device Services can also run independently on other type of edge device such as PAC, PLC or smart sensors

IOTech was established to provide vendor neutral commercial services to support the EdgeX Foundry community and its users. This includes commercial quality, packaged and fully supported implementations of the EdgeX Foundry platform.
