IOTech's Software Products and Solutions build on EdgeX Foundry a new flexible, platform-independent, highly-scalable open source edge software platform

Products & Solutions

IOTech’s Software Products and Solutions build on EdgeX FoundryTM a new flexible, platform-independent, highly-scalable 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. The project is hosted by the Linux Foundation and more details can be found at www.edgeXfoundry.org

Our Offering

IOTech's products and solutions will support the EdgeX Foundry global developer community and partner ecosystem by building software product and service offerings based on the EdgeX core infrastructure platform and leveraging IOTech’s vendor neutral specialist Operational Technology (OT) and Distributed Real-time & Embedded (DRE) software skills.

We intend to be the leading contributor to the EdgeX Foundry infrastructure development and roadmap, as well as building and productising commercial product offerings for both the EdgeX open source platform baseline and complementary commercial product offerings.

Our first solution offering, is a commercially-supported and packaged implementation of the open source EdgeX Foundry core platform, available with a range of complementary professional services summarized below and in more detail here.

Full commercial support and maintenance subscriptions offering service-level guarantees for customers that value premium product quality and support

  • Services from proof of concepts through architectural design up to and including a full integration service enabling hardware and software vendors to integrate their value-added product offerings with the EdgeX foundation
  • Accelerating the ‘productised’ roadmap for the EdgeX Foundry core to support new platform features
  • Standard or bespoke EdgeX training at one of our facilities or alternatively delivered on-site for convenience and schedule

Linux Foundation EdgeX Foundry

EdgeX Foundry is 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.

Based on a loosely-coupled microservices architecture, EdgeX platform foundation is comprised of a set of core services, a methodology for creating interoperable device interfaces (a Device Service SDK), an underlying deployment framework and a reference implementation for system management.

The loosely-coupled architecture allows for independent microservices to be distributed across discrete hardware devices, written in different code bases (e.g. Java, JavaScript, Python), and communicate with sensors, each other, and with other computing infrastructures via HTTP-REST/MQTT and other protocols.

The Core Services and Deployment Framework have been architected to be as hardware (e.g. x86, ARM) and OS (e.g. various flavours of Linux and Windows) agnostic as possible, while comprehending that drivers for physical hardware I/O and certain functionality such as deep security and system management are reliant on the host platform and OS. For these functions, the EdgeX Platform can simply be tailored to the hardware and OS of choice.

The EdgeX Foundry platform is available available under an Apache 2.0 open source license.

Key Features

  • Loosely-coupled microservices architecture, chosen for maximum flexibility to unify heterogeneous ingredients
  • Agnostic to CPU, OS and application environment (e.g. polyglot) for maximum reach
  • Services scale based on device capability and use case
  • Supports any combination of Device Services to normalize connectivity protocols into a common API through Core Services
  • Overall architecture can be distributed across multiple hardware nodes (coloured bars are logical layers only). For example, Device Services can also be deployed on smart sensors communicating directly with Core Services
  • Any given reference service (e.g. northbound message bus, rules engine, analytics, database) can be replaced with a preferred open source or proprietary alternative
  • Drop-in replacements (e.g. C-based variants) for microservices or entire subsections can be made for higher performance and achieving hard real time
