Anyone who has listened to any of Ed’s podcasts over the last two years knows how much value he thinks there is to be gained from leveraging both the cloud and the edge for data processing in IoT systems and applications.
We have often written and spoken about the benefits of edge computing in IoT systems and applications. As more companies begin to leverage the edge for IoT data collection and analysis, many have questions around the best tools, technologies, and platforms for implementation.
Industrial IoT systems have unique requirements and constraints that impact the design of IoT solutions for industrial use. Industrial equipment has a long lifetime, measured in decades, and systems often have legacy edge sensors that are outdated and lack the necessary bandwidth to reach the cloud.
