Closing the gap between cloud and field

With Industrial Edge you take digitalization directly to your manufacturing systems

Utilize the new freedom in automation and reap the benefits of a smarter manufacturing – that lets you decide where and how your data are processed. It lets you apply the intelligence and scalability of the Cloud directly in your manufacturing systems – with ease, top performance, and no need for your data to leave your manufacturing area.

Industrial Edge

The best of both worlds

Industrial Edge combines local and high-performance data processing directly within the automation system with the benefits offered by the Cloud: app-based data analysis, data processing and infrastructure-as-a-service concepts with a centralized update function.

Using the best of the Cloud securely in manufacturing: Industrial Edge

There is no question that Cloud solutions offer many benefits: they provide central management for applications, easily link data from various sources, and provide a powerful infrastructure for data processing. At the same time there’s a huge demand for locally processing data close to the machine in the most secure way possible. Often regulations or company guidelines prohibit transferring data to cloud servers outside the country or company IT infrastructure.

This is precisely where Industrial Edge comes in, combining the benefits of the Cloud with the strengths of a local solution: you decide where you will process, store and use your data – locally, in the Cloud, or with a hybrid solution.

Savings through Edge Computing and Artificial Intelligence    

Siemens Elektronikwerk Amberg | Germany   The Siemens factory in Amberg products mostly SIMATIC devices. One of the machines there broke down from time to time with no predictable rhythm. Because speed and current are particularly important for drives, these data were processed and analyzed with the help of Artificial Intelligence. Industrial Edge provided the hardware to run the algorithms and to process the huge amount of data, and the software to extract the data from automation components and to analyze them directly where they are created: at the machine.
