Accelerating the convergence of building automation and IoT

Industry 4.0 represents a revolution through which traditional industrial control systems are becoming digitized, offering a wealth of benefits across industries. But this move isn’t straightforward; with huge investments in existing infrastructure, systems can’t just be ripped out and replaced with new equipment. How can your business make the transition in a cost-effective, simple way when your legacy systems don’t speak the same languages as new, connected information technologies?

At Adesto, we understand the enormity of this task, and have developed solutions to make it easy for you to bridge these worlds. SmartServer IoT offers a seamless, secure, and cost-effective way for new technology to access the data inside legacy systems, letting you harness your data to make more informed decisions, achieve new levels of operational efficiency, and reap the incredible benefits of predictive analytics.

Smart Sever

Key Features

End-to-end IoT solution – with modular interfaces for leading industrial communications protocols and IP network and data abstraction layer, eliminating the requirement to integrate protocol stacks and abstract the data from a variety of device types

User-friendly web-based management system – simplify the integrator workflow of creating, provisioning and managing devices with configurable dashboards, alarms and reports

Secure IoT messaging to remote clients and cloud services – gather data from devices efficiently from any public or private cloud without opening unsecure ports or punching holes through firewalls

Extensible, open integration Linux-based platform – freely available modern RESTful APIs for accelerating web apps and HTML development, and MQTT for custom controls applications; all ensuring integration with any IoT device or application

Edge services for controls and automation – with pre-integrated device and data management apps—such as connecting, routing, scheduling, data logging and alarming—all operating at the network edge for faster, more responsive systems


Existing Industrial Devices

SmartServer IoT’s extensible architecture connects new and legacy industrial devices together with a secure modern messaging protocol. The powerful Internet Access Protocol (IAP) running within SmartServer IoT is used to abstract data and network management from industrial communications protocols:

  • No need to rip and replace! You can access data from your existing industrial devices and systems
  • Connect siloed or closed systems and manage control networks


To emerging IoT protocols and applications

Open southbound interfaces adds extensions for IoT sensors and devices and a northbound interface enables cloud integration:

  • Faster time to market for integrating new device types and applications
  • Customizable apps and services such as scheduling, data logging and alarming running at the edge for responsive and reliable systems


With insights from cloud analytics and AI services

Enhance operational efficiency and ROI with insights from data analytics and predictive artificial intelligence (AI) services through seamless connectivity to cloud platforms:

  • Powerful open REST and MQTT based web services APIs for access to devices from web applications, remote clients and cloud services
  • Log, trend and analyze sensor, meter or controller data locally or remotely with edge compute resources for optimizing data charges
