Rigado Gateways Leverage AWS IoT Greengrass to Power Flexible Edge Computing

By Ken Briodagh April 03, 2019

According to a recent announcement, Prologis, logistics real estate company, has partnered with Rigado Cascade Internet of Things (IoT) Gateways to leverage Amazon Web Services (AWS) IoT Greengrass to provide edge connectivity and computing for its future logistics Digital Infrastructure.

The solution reportedly is designed to provide Prologis and its customers with powerful, flexible and secure connectivity and computing to enable IoT applications like asset tracking, cold-chain monitoring, and preventative maintenance. Smart applications such as these can bring impressive operational improvements and financial benefits to logistics and operations teams. However, the time and cost required to design, deploy, and secure the necessary edge connectivity and computing infrastructure to power these applications is often a barrier to entry for customers.

“We believe the efficiency and safety afforded by these emerging smart applications are absolutely key for our customers,” said Alan Findley, SVP, Emerging Technologies, Prologis. “Bringing a flexible edge connectivity and containerized computing capability, which also supports AWS IoT Greengrass, to our portfolio will allow our customers to take advantage of the latest IoT capabilities without having to deploy, secure, and maintain their own infrastructure.”

By deploying an infrastructure with Rigado IoT Gateways running AWS IoT Greengrass, Prologis said it is establishing a logistics Digital Infrastructure platform that can reduce the cost and complexity of enabling use cases across its logistics real estate portfolio.

“The Prologis Digital Infrastructure is exactly the kind of environment we had in mind when we combined the Cascade IoT Gateway with AWS IoT Greengrass,” said Toban Zolman, VP, Product, Rigado. “The ability to connect to a wide range of wireless devices and sensors, and to easily run flexible edge applications is key – not only for today’s current IoT use-cases, but for those that will emerge in the years to come.”
