The Edge Software Platform that puts you in control

Don’t be constrained to fixed choices for how to deliver edge computing in your organization. Choose an open edge computing platform that gives you the freedom to innovate and realize key business-value at the edge without creating dependencies on an individual technology or vendor. Edge Xpert is a comprehensive yet open and extensible edge computing platform that will greatly decrease OT and IT integration effort, reduce time to market and lower your total cost and business risk.

Edge Xpert Key Benefits

Connect and Control Devices
Extensive support for easy integration of southbound OT devices and sensors at the edge. Lots of connectors for many industrial and OT protocols are already available, with easy-to-use tooling to help onboard and connect new devices. Use the provided open SDK to easily create new connectors or ask IOTech Professional Services to help create and integrate what you need
Open Choice of Analytics
Edge Xpert aggregates your operational edge data and ships with reference rules engines and analytics packages that are available out of the box. If you have your own analytics or a favored third party package, plug that in instead. Standard APIs mean you can easily replace the default options with others when needed
Cloud and IT System Agnostic
Easily integrate and share edge data to your choice of northbound Cloud and IT systems. Built-in support for steaming to the main cloud vendors like AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google and IBM are provided along with the additional flexibility to create more integrations with a northbound application SDK. You can choose to export data out of the platform via different northbound protocols like MQTT, REST and Kafka, or again use the SDK to create more possibilities
Scalability and Performance
Harness the connectivity and digital value of as many edge devices as your organization needs. Edge Xpert has a scalable design with numerous efficiency optimizations that give you control at many levels throughout the stack. Edge Xpert needs no cloud connectivity so enables truly on-premise and autonomous system operations
Run on Any Device
Edge Xpert is hardware, operating system and processor independent so you can run it on your choice of edge computing device. Users typically run Edge Xpert on IoT gateways and edge servers but the containerized approach of Edge Xpert means it can easily run on any target device. If your target platform has limited power or you have time-critical requirements, the complementary sister product Edge XRT adds a real-time capability and runs on microcontrollers & resource-constrained devices
Modular and Flexible
Edge Xpert is based on a modular and flexible microservices architecture. Each microservices provides a specific capability at the edge, so choose only the features you need at each level and be in complete control of resources and functionality. Don’t forget you have to freedom to also create your own microservices using the standard APIs and open SDKs
Active Community and Ecosystem
Edge Xpert is based on the Linux Foundation’s EdgeX Foundry open-source computing platform. IOTech productize and greatly enhance EdgeX with a number of additional key features to bring you the Edge Xpert platform that you can trust for your demanding edge computing needs. The large and ever-expanding EdgeX community are available to add other valuable components and options to the platform when needed. IOTech and Edge Xpert are part of an open ecosystem of collaborating companies
Security as Standard
Security is, of course, a key aspect of any edge computing solution. Edge Xpert is based on open-source software with open APIs and SDKs but protection from outside interference is built into the platform at every level. Authorization, authentication and secret management are key aspects of the platform infrastructure, but the platform lets you plug in any additional or company-specific security features you need.
