Our embedded components, modules, edge servers and software enable OEMs, application developers and system integrators to quickly develop robust, innovative and interoperable industrial Internet of Things (IoT) solutions for their end users — solutions that meet the unique requirements of the industrial IoT, which include autonomous control, industrial-strength reliability and scalability.
These solutions can enable customers to reduce energy consumption, capital and operating costs, and maintenance; more accurately control business-critical conditions; establish a platform for additional networked applications; and collect data for better asset utilization, increased efficiencies, and powerful predictive analytics.
Products in our edge device tier include chips and development kits. Our chips are embedded in industrial IoT devices such as load controllers, lighting drivers, sensors, meters and thermostats to enable them to act as peers working together to collect data and take cooperative action. These individual devices are managed by edge products such as our SmartServer™ IoT edge server.
At the edge product tier, various control technologies and protocols are unified and supervised so that local decisions can be made at the device tier levels. In general, these products communicate southbound to control protocols such as LonWorks technology, BACnet, and Open Smart Grid Protocol (OSGP), and northbound to remote clients, web applications, and cloud services through an IP interface. They feature open application programming interfaces (APIs) for control and IoT use cases.
At the management tier, our solutions connect the edge products and devices to enterprise software / cloud / information technology solutions, so business rules can be established for the control system, and operational data can be archived for later analysis. Additional software products and services complement our hardware products to provide complete, end-to-end solutions for integrators and developers.
