Edge Computing Facilitated

Industrial Edge

16.05.2018 Siemens is introducing “Siemens Industrial Edge”, a digitization platform which can extend automation devices by providing data processing at machine level and by bringing highly developed analysis technology and the intelligence of edge computing to the manufacturing area in a secure way.

Facts for Decision Makers:

  • closes gap between local and cloud computing
  • supports cloud transfer protocols
  • Edge Apps for increased productivity

Industrial Edge offers users the possibility of executing a range of descriptive, diagnostic, predictive, and prescriptive analytical applications. This allows cloud connectivity (data to cloud) to be used in combination with proprietary Edge Apps as well as those from third party providers or end users themselves in an integrated hardware and software ecosystem (Edge App to Device) for automation components. Industrial Edge permits users to close the gap between classic, local data processing and cloud-based data processing to suit individual requirements. Edge computing allows large volumes of data to be processed locally. To this end, the company is releasing a broad spectrum of applications to users, including data processing, data visualization via webservers, data transfer to the cloud or IT  infrastructures, and quick innovation cycles in the development of apps. There is also an additional reduction in memory and transfer costs as large volumes of data are preprocessed and only the relevant data is finally transferred to a cloud or IT infrastructure. Industrial Edge supports cloud transfer protocols for MindSphere, the company‘s own open, cloud-based operating system. In the future, it will also support Message Queuing Telemetry Transport (MQTT), making data transfer safe, secure, and effective.
