Gathering data from industrial devices at the edge is key to unlocking insights
Conventional Internet of Things (IoT) approaches to enterprise/edge connectivity in a broad spectrum of process facilities are being upstaged by new application gateway technologies. These devices enable collection of data from industrial assets at the edge and push that data to the cloud, without interrupting existing SCADA functionality and without the need to replace existing hardware.
Enabling highly-scalable enterprise infrastructures with plug-and-play simplicity, these gateways provide heightened, layered security without system overburdening. For process automation applications, they open the door to simpler IoT accessibility from edge to enterprise, with improved asset utilization, higher process efficiency and productivity, and lower cost of operation.
