As leaders in Edge Computing, ADLINK has provided the missing link to many Connected Factory projects for over 20 years (yes, before IoT was a buzzword) so we’ve seen a thing or two- good, bad, and ugly. Connectivity doesn’t start at the cloud and it doesn’t start with sensors, it starts at the Edge, where machine data is actually produced. And it doesn’t have to be complicated. We are vendor agnostic, a manufacturer ourselves, and have a special ability to connect the unconnected, and stream real-time machine data anywhere, regardless of the machine language, sensor protocol, or data type. If you believe a “Connected Machine” shouldn’t be complicated, and are curious to learn more about life at the Edge, then this webinar is for you.

Some topics we’ll cover:

  • Edge IoT-the convergence of Edge Computing and IoT- basics and tips
  • Remote machine monitoring and machine data extraction (brownfield and greenfield)
  • Simple real-time data sharing between machine to machine, machine to human, machine to cloud
  • Use cases: optimizing manufacturing ops, increasing product quality, decreasing machine downtime, root/cause analysis

If You're Not Living on the Edge, You're Taking Up Too Space!
