By Ken Briodagh April 24, 2018

According to a recent announcement, Toshiba Digital Solutions Corporation and Nebbiolo Technologies have signed a strategic partnership agreement to deploy Industrial IoT solutions using leading-edge fog computing technology. As strategic partners, a complete suite of infrastructure products reportedly will be developed driving new business supporting IIoT architecture and specifications.

The partnership was established to launch a large-scale initiative in the Smart Factory IoT domain to address modernizing the aging fleet of hardware and software currently deployed on industrial automation floors using a virtualized fog platform to enable consolidation, central management, upgraded security, high availability, and thereby improve overall operational efficiency, according to the release.

Furthermore, this collaboration extends Toshiba's SPINEX IoT architecture with fog infrastructure used for computing nodes and IoT gateways supporting industrial machines. The objective is to enable comprehensive asset and life cycle management of these systems integrated with the ability to provide advanced data analytics and machine learning.

Nebbiolo will augment Toshiba's IoT software platform capabilities to achieve the aforementioned objectives. Toshiba will develop and integrate complete industrial IoT solutions with connectivity, security, data accumulation, visualization, and management leveraging Nebbiolo's fog computing platform.

Nebbiolo's fog computing platform, based on fogNodes, powered by the fogOS stack and centrally managed by the fogSM system manager, is designed to address many industrial automation challenges. It virtualizes and converges hardware and software components; and it provides centralized software lifecycle management for distributed applications at the edge. It supports application-defined networking for OT/OT and OT/IT separation and Time-Sensitive Networking ("TSN") for real-time workloads, distributed security, software SDK/APIs, IT-like data management, and opens the path to the future of industrial control.

“This partnership contributes to the development of IoT solutions in the industrial world.” said Hironobu Nishikori, President and CEO, Toshiba Digital Solutions Corporation. “Although industrial customers want to utilize IoT solutions for their business, their concerns such as security risk and ROI issue keep investment away. Toshiba provide firm and secure IoT offerings to our industrial customers with advanced fog computing infrastructure by Nebbiolo.”
