Edge XRT

Edge XRT

Edge XRT is the software platform for time-critical and resource-constrained edge systems that supports edge computing key requirements such as dynamic edge data processing and the integration of multiple different southbound OT and northbound IT/Cloud endpoints. Edge XRT also supports key non-functional properties such as small memory footprint (e.g. less than 100 KB), ultra-low latency data processing (e.g. less than 100 microseconds), predictable and deterministic real-time execution, and legacy hardware and/or operating systems

Cloud Connectivity

Cloud Connectivity

Edge computing focuses on the processing of operational data at the edge of the network. That means performing data collection functions and running decision making and control algorithms as close to the edge sensors and OT devices as possible. However, it is also clear that cloud computing continues to provide much value in the Industrial IoT space. This means that most systems require a hybrid solution consisting of both edge and cloud components working together in a cohesive way. Users require the ability to utilize cloud resources for heavy-duty applications, while using edge computing for lighter-weight processing and local, real-time insights. IOTech's edge software products enable seamless yet secure data sharing between your edge and cloud environments.

Edge XRT Available as Part of Edge Xpert 1.6 Release

Edge XRT Available as Part of Edge Xpert 1.6 Release

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.

Building Automation: A Sweet Spot for EdgeX

Building Automation: A Sweet Spot for EdgeX

The key objective of the EdgeX Foundry project is to create a flexible and open Edge IoT platform that can support a range of different vertical use cases across markets as diverse as manufacturing, oil & gas and smart energy. A key vertical market that has emerged where the community and IOTech, in particular, have been involved in multiple projects is Building Automation. Why is Building Automation proving to be such a sweet spot for EdgeX? IOTech's experience is that the requirements of the next generation of Buildings Automation applications align perfectly with the capabilities of EdgeX.  In particular, a modern building is a sophisticated and heterogeneous environment consisting of diverse subsystems including lighting, HVAC and access control. Data can be generated from multiple sources using a range of different device/sensor technologies and protocols (e.g. Modbus, BACnet, DALI, MQTT and others). The sensor data must be normalized by the IoT platform running on an Edge node e.g. an industrial Gateway or on-premise server. The data can then be fed into the building management analytics which can make smart control decisions in "near" real-time on how to automatically optimize the building environment for the benefit of the users and also the building owners.  The openness of EdgeX (can support any "Southbound" OT protocol or "Northbound" Cloud endpoint) and its platform independence (not tied to a specific operating system or hardware/silicon) is key to its suitability for Building Automation use cases.

2017: A Year of Momentum for EdgeX and IOTech

2017: A Year of Momentum for EdgeX and IOTech

Keith Steele, IOTech CEO, EdgeX Foundry Board member and Technical Steering Committee (TSC) Chair gives his views on why the EdgeX Foundry project has generated so much momentum in just six months after launch, spotlighting also the importance of credible commercialization partners. What is driving this momentum? First and foremost, there's a market need, the industrial internet of Things (IIoT) market is projected to grow to $195B in the next few years (source Markets and Markets), with at least 40% IoT data stored, processed, analyzed at or near the edge (source IDC).   Secondly, there's a technology gap as identified by the IIC's Edge Computing Task Group, the Open Fog consortium and many industry-leading companies. Peter Levine from Andreessen-Horowitz has provocatively suggested that the age of edge compute is taking over the cloud.

Telecommunication

Telecommunication

The emergence of Multi Access Edge Computing (MEC) technology aims at extending cloud computing capabilities to the edge of the radio access network, hence providing real-time, high-bandwidth, low-latency access to radio network resources. IoT is identifed as a key use case of MEC, given MEC's ability to provide cloud platform and gateway services at the network edge. MEC will inspire the development of many new applications and services with demand for ultra-low latency and high Quality of Service (QoS) due to its dense geographical distribution and wide support for mobility. MEC is therefore an important enabler of IoT applications and services which require real-time operations.

IOTech to develop EdgeX Foundry Community Demonstrator

IOTech to develop EdgeX Foundry Community Demonstrator

IOTech, the IoT Edge Platform company, announced today it is in the process of developing an EdgeX Foundry™ community demonstrator. EdgeX Foundry supports a common IoT edge framework enabling an ecosystem of plug-and-play components that unifies the marketplace and makes it easier for developers to build, deploy, run and scale IoT solutions for industrial, enterprise and consumer applications. This project is the first of several community demonstrators, which will be used to showcase the full capabilities of the EdgeX IoT Edge Platform across several use cases, and vertical markets. The first vertical market showcased will be Smart Buildings Automation and the first chance to see the demonstrator in action will be at IoT World Solutions Congress in Barcelona between the 16th -18th October 2018.

The Road to Barcelona: Putting together the EdgeX Community Demonstrator for IoT Solutions World Congress 2018

The Road to Barcelona: Putting together the EdgeX Community Demonstrator for IoT Solutions World Congress 2018

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.
