IOTech deliver key edge software products and services that allows our partners and customers to bring exciting EdgeX-based solutions to market quickly, efficiently and with minimized business risk.
IOTech provide a range of edge software capabilities including a productized and value-add EdgeX implementation, real-time extensions to EdgeX, and advanced device and cloud connectivity services – all designed to simplify and fast-track edge solution development. IOTech now also provide flexible and scalable technology for the management and deployment of hardware nodes and their edge software applications – making it a straightforward task to manage and orchestrate the whole edge solution.
IOTech’s Edge Xpert is a fully productized, commercially supported EdgeX implementation. The product includes a range of additional value-add features and capabilities over and above the baseline open-source technology. For example, Edge Xpert includes extensive southbound connectivity for a range of industrial OT protocols as well as bi-directional northbound connectivity to IT systems and the major cloud vendors. Other value-add features include additional options for storage, visualization, analytics and security, together with advanced tooling to accelerate the development, deployment and administration of the solution.
IOTech also provide EdgeX Foundry users with free access to its Device Configuration Tool. Users can save more time by graphically creating and editing the configurations required to connect each device to EdgeX, Edge Xpert or Edge XRT.
IOTech have also developed a complementary EdgeX extension named Edge XRT. The Edge XRT platform extends the EdgeX core platform capabilities to run in low latency, real-time or severely resource-constrained environments. Edge XRT enables extremely fast data processing and is ultra-lightweight compared to the regular EdgeX platform.
IOTech have also developed a comprehensive edge management and orchestration product named Edge Builder. The Edge Builder product can deploy and manage EdgeX, Edge Xpert and Edge XRT (as well as other third-party software) with flexibility and at great scale. Edge Builder manages both the edge hardware nodes and the applications that run on those nodes.
