FOG COMPUTING FEATURE NEWS

ADLINK Adds Foghorn Edge Intelligence

By Ken Briodagh July 19, 2018

According to a recent announcement, ADLINK Technology, a global provider of edge computing solutions, has partnered with FogHorn Systems, a developer of software for industrial and commercial Internet of Things (IIoT) solutions, to bring edge intelligence to ADLINK’s groundbreaking DXS IoT digital experiments as-a-service. DXS enables the testing of potential IoT-based endeavors to determine the viability of possible solutions with none of the upfront costs and risk associated with a full solution commitment.

Full IoT solutions conventionally require significant upfront investment, despite, according to industry studies, success rates for such projects only reaching 26%. 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, 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.”

FogHorn’s Lightning product portfolio brings an innovative dimension to IIoT by embedding edge intelligence as close as possible to the source of streaming sensor data. The FogHorn platform is a highly compact, advanced and feature-rich edge intelligence solution that delivers unprecedented low latency for onsite data processing and real-time analytics in addition to its machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence capabilities. FogHorn’s cloud-agnostic approach offers a fully-integrated, closed-loop edge-to-cloud solution, maximizing real-time insights and rapidly iterating ML models to adjust to constantly changing operating conditions.

“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, VP, business development, 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.”

There is a lot to learn about the developing Edge and Fog netowrking industries. Coming up in October in San Francisco, the Fog World Congress event will investigate many of the issues and advantages of these strageies. Register now.
