Fog Computing and the Evolution of Industry 4.0

Fog computing is an emerging trend that distributes computing for more timely analytics. The OpenFog Consortium — founded in 2015 by Intel and other industry leaders — is helping define fog computing architectures and ensure interoperability. See the strides the Consortium is making, especially around system architecture specifications and IoT gateways that localize data analysis.

Pattern-Matching: Low-Power Intelligence at the Edge

Keeping power consumption in check is a serious challenge when you need deep intelligence. The Intel® Quark™ SE microcontroller C1000 tackles this issue with an innovative pattern-matching engine and smart sensor subsystem. Discover the benefits of offloading processing from the main core to deliver edge intelligence at low power.

Simplify Sensor Connections with Modular IoT Software

Integrating Internet of Things (IoT) sensors can be a time-consuming and tedious process. American Megatrends, Inc. (AMI) provides a modular, plug-and-play approach to sensor interfaces that speeds up the early stages of development. Learn how their software stack uses sensor hubs, IoT gateways, cloud connectivity, and more to take the pain out of sensor integration.

IoT Kit Puts Cloud Hooks in the Gateway

Few companies have expertise in both embedded design and Big Data — or know how to combine these domains. The Advantech IoT Gateway Starter Kit simplifies matters. Find out how this gateway comes preloaded with cloud connectors and a drag-and-drop interface that powers sophisticated data analytics.

Keep an Eye on the Factory with the IoT

Collecting and analyzing production and equipment data is a big challenge. ADLINK recently demonstrated a smart factory system that monitors production lines in real time, and predicts order fulfillment and maintenance needs. Learn how this end-to-end data analytics platform, with a data acquisition unit and smart cameras, helps increase factory productivity.

Push OT-IT Convergence to Full Throttle

A lack of compatibility keeps manufacturing data isolated within machines, engineering reports, and accounting databases. Operational and information technology (OT-IT) convergence breaks down silos, providing a pathway from factory to cloud. Discover how NEXCOM is enabling Big Data analytics and Industry 4.0 scenarios through cross-platform connectivity and drag-and-drop simplicity.

Monitoring and Securing the Smart Grid

Smart grids use phasor measurement units (PMUs) to assess and manage independently operated grid systems. National Instruments, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, and OSIsoft created a best-of-breed smart grid platform that includes flexible PMUs and phasor data concentrators (PDCs). Check out how it provides deeper, faster insight into grid issues.

LoRa and LTE Cat. 1 Extend Wireless Sensing Range

Emerging wireless technologies like LoRa and LTE Cat. 1 provide longer range at lower cost and power than stalwarts like Wi-Fi* and ZigBee*. LoRa can handle 65,000 end devices on one interface. Meanwhile, LTE Cat. 1 provides blazing-fast connectivity over low-cost cellular. Learn why both are vital, and how to implement them.
