Utilize IOTech's edge software platforms and commercial-grade connectors by purchasing exactly the product features you need using our new online store. Recognizing that our products offer a wide range of edge computing features and that not all customers will use every capability or need to use every type of device connector, we have simplified the commercial model and the way in which our products can be selected and deployed. So, in response to customer demand, our marketing team has been working on making our products available to purchase online. This is now live and coincides with the Edge Xpert 1.8 release we have just made. Our new online store makes it easy and convenient to buy exactly the product set you need for your edge solution deployments. You can buy the exact number of units of Edge Xpert or Edge XRT that you need, the specific device connectors for your use case, the optional SDKs when you need them, and any other add-on you require. You can also choose the support and training options you need. All of this keeps the pricing competitive and provides great value to the customer. We support credit card payments or you can request a quotation which will allow you to raise a purchase order in your organization before returning to your account to complete the order.
Edge XRT is adding a lot of value and provides clear differentiation over alternative approaches. The first is to provide a flexible IoT framework for microcontroller and microcomputer class devices, these are environments with memory constraints less than 1GB and as low as 256KBs, typically running a low powered ARM processor. Creating IoT applications for these types of device is normally the realm of custom/bespoke application code created by highly experienced embedded developers. What our users like about Edge XRT is that in many cases they can create connected edge applications simply by configuring Edge XRT's standard components without the need for complicated programming, although they can of course create components of any complexity if needed. This capability was highlighted in our recent webcast "Accelerating Time to Value for IoT Applications at the Far Edge" where we discussed our partnership with Microsoft. Over the last six months we have been working with the Microsoft Azure Sphere team who have in turn been partnering with a number major hardware vendors to create a new generation of secure, certified chips and MCUs based Azure Sphere IoT technologies. In this case, Edge XRT provides a standard configurable IoT application layer for Azure Sphere devices that can reduce time-to-market for new edge applications deployed within the Azure ecosystem from weeks to days.
IOTech's commercial-grade device connectors enable EdgeX users to simplify the work required to connect and communicate with different devices at sensors at the IoT edge using Modbus, OPC UA, BACnet, REST and more. EdgeX users can now utilize IOTech's commercial-grade connectors and all customers can purchase exactly the products they need using our new online store. IOTech's new device connectivity tooling makes it easy to create the configurations that describe your edge IoT devices. It's then really simple to get those devices quickly onboarded to either one of IOTech's commercial edge platforms or the open-source EdgeX Foundry platform. We are really pleased to have made that tool available as a free online service to the EdgeX community. Expertise in Industrial Connectivity we have built up a large set of device connectors for our Edge Xpert and Edge XRT platforms and support a long list of protocols including Modbus, BACnet, OPC UA, BLE, Zigbee, EtherCAT, EtherNet/IP and many others. Whether your industry vertical is manufacturing, process control, telemetry, building automation or retail, you need will device connectivity. Read about the full list we provide here.
At IOTech, we are delighted to announce the release of version 1.5 of the Edge Xpert Open IoT Platform. Edge Xpert is our commercially supported implementation of the Linux Foundation's open-source EdgeX Foundry project. Aimed at Industrial IoT Edge applications, the Edge Xpert product builds upon the latest stable version of the baseline EdgeX technology, in this case, the Edinburgh release, to create a high quality and fully customer supported solution.
IOTech is moving its Newcastle office to The Catalyst in Science Central, Newcastle upon Tyne city centre, a short distance from its current premises at the Core, from Monday 3rd February 2020. The move into more spacious offices is eagerly anticipated by our Newcastle-based employees and provides them with a high-quality state-of-the-art working environment whilst also allowing space for future growth. Due to continued growth, IOTech has also recently expanded its current office space in Taipei and is in the process of securing a move to larger office facilities for its Edinburgh-based staff.
Watch IOTech present our commercial EdgeX offerings used in real-world deployments at the EdgeX Foundry Adopter Series session. Continuing the Vertical Solutions EdgeX Adopter Series, Keith Steele - IOTech CEO and Jim White - IOTech CTO will present how they have built a successful range of COTS value-add edge offerings based on EdgeX Foundry.
With the help of Basking Automation - our building automation partner, we designed the demonstrator so that the lighting and air conditioning of three distinct zones in a smart building could be automatically controlled based on the ambient conditions and the number of occupants in each zone. The role of EdgeX is to collect data from industrial-grade light and temperature sensors, then to efficiently manage the office environment by intelligently delivering the desired actuation values to the lighting and air conditioning units. The objective of the demonstration was to give an opportunity for visitors to the stand to affect the behaviour themselves by swiping users into zones, interacting with the sensors and observing the resulting changes to the lights and air conditioning units. The demonstration also included a power meter so that the efficiency gains from the automation can be easily observed. All this functionality was running at the Edge but we also demonstrated Cloud system integration by delivering data to the Basking platform which provides further detailed control and analysis for the building automation domain.
IOTech are excited to announce the release of Edge Xpert 1.6. This is a significant new product release for a number of reasons but I wanted to highlight in this blog about how version 1.6 includes the initial availability of Edge XRT. Edge XRT is a new IOTech product we are launching and is the first real-time edge computing platform for the Industrial IoT. Aimed at real-time industrial process automation and embedded microcontroller applications, XRT enables ultra-low latency, high frequency data processing in a powerful edge computing platform. Edge control systems can utilize XRT to make key data-driven decisions within the deterministic timeframes demanded by time-critical IoT applications. We designed XRT to be a fully integrated and complementary extension to EdgeX Foundry, the leading open source edge computing platform. XRT now makes EdgeX the only IoT edge platform capable of supporting the full spectrum of secure hard and soft real-time IoT edge computing needs, and I think our users will really like this new capability.
Since we launched Edge XRT over a year ago the technology is proving to be a big success with our customers. Edge XRT is already helping major Industrial OEM and ISV partners leverage the product's multi-vendor OT connectivity, cloud interoperability and high-performance edge processing capabilities to create a new generation of protocol-agnostic edge solutions. With the advent of the Internet of Things (IoT) industrial users/customers are increasingly seeking new solutions that allow them to leverage their equipment data in ways not previously possible to support new use cases that utilize the latest advances in AI, ML and software automation to improve the efficiency of their operations. Industrial OEMs and ISVs are responding with the next generation of software defined solutions that are far more configurable and extensible than was previously possible. In particular the ability to connect to any OT device and interoperate with different IT/Cloud endpoints is critical to achieving this flexibility.
