ADLINK Technology has partnered with FogHorn Systems to bring edge intelligence to ADLINK’s DXS IoT digital experiments as-a-service. DXS enables the testing of potential IoT-based endeavors to determine the viability of possible solutions.
Full IoT solutions conventionally require significant upfront investment, despite, according to industry studies, success rates for such projects only reaching 26%, according to ADLINK. The vendor-agnostic DXS provides all the resources required to get digital experiments up and running, including pre-validated hardware, client-asset connection, data-movement consolidation to bridge the IT/OT gap, enterprise sharing, endpoint management, and field and professional services, without associated upfront costs.
“ADLINK DXS enables industrial organizations to think big, start small and work fast when integrating IoT-based functionality within new business models or processes,” said Andy Penfold, director of offering management, ADLINK IoT Solutions and Technology. “It’s very clear an edge-to-cloud approach will emerge as a primary design principle in IIoT production deployments, so adding the leading provider of edge intelligence into the DXS creates, in our opinion, the most advanced testing ground available for IIoT projects.”
According to the partners, FogHorn Lightning offers ADLINK DXS customers several benefits, including:
- Real-time, CEP-based streaming analytics enabling faster actionable insights for greater operating efficiencies
- Edge-to-cloud iterative machine learning for higher quality predictive insights
- Radically lower data persistence and transport requirements by processing live data at the source
- Enhanced security posture by eliminates the need to transmit critical OT data across networks
“ADLINK is meeting a critical need in the market today with its DXS offering, giving organizations the tools and expertise to model multiple IIoT use cases with little risk or cost,” said Kevin Duffy, vice president of business development at FogHorn. “FogHorn is a natural extension of this initiative to bring the technical and economic benefits of edge intelligence into the modeling of IIoT projects. We’re very excited to be working with ADLINK.”
“Our service leverages technologies through all layers of the required hardware, software and network stacks to create viable, scalable and secure IoT solutions,” Penfold added. “These solutions span not only capabilities from ADLINK, but also from partners throughout our ecosystem, and are therefore agnostic in nature.”
