Thanks to our integrated hardware and software solutions, a leading provider of industrial production lines was able to improve their product portfolio with value-added services powered by IoT and edge AI.
REQUIREMENTS AND CHALLENGES
The customer’s production lines are based on many subsystems integrating and working together, and each subsystem is made of different types of devices and machinery. They needed to connect all these subsystems and devices, and leverage IoT and AI technologies to enrich them with Industry 4.0 features – like remote monitoring and predictive maintenance – to create a unique value proposition for their customers.
WHAT WE PROVIDED
- Industry-certified edge gateways integrated with our IoT Edge Framework ESF (Everyware Software Framework)
- Remote management through Everyware Cloud (EC), our Edge Management Platform
- Data integration with Microsoft Azure cloud services and applications
HOW THE CUSTOMER MET THEIR GOALS
Thanks to the rich field protocol libraries natively supported by ESF, they were able to connect multiple types of machines and devices to the cloud to collect and integrate data with leading IT applications and analytics. ESF also enabled the integration and deployment of third-party software on the edge, and a seamless integration with Microsoft Azure for data integration and with Everyware Cloud for remote device management and updates.
