There is no one-size-fits-all solution in IoT, so our systems are designed to adapt to the needs of our customers.  We offer two core hardware systems in different packages to meet the needs of different applications in different market verticals.

The gateway and edge computers are communications hubs that pass data from the devices to the cloud. They connect to the devices using wired connections, such as RS-232, RS-485, Modbus, I2C or Dallas 1-Wire. Or they communicate wirelessly using protocols such as Bluetooth, ZigBee, Thread or even proprietary protocols. They communicate to the cloud using Ethernet, Wi-Fi or cellular technologies.

Gateways are simple devices that only pass data between the cloud and the device. They don’t have the computing power to do much more than exception reporting, but are lower cost and lower power. Edge computers are typically Linux-based embedded computers that have the horsepower to perform some edge analytics before passing data to the cloud. Depending on the application, they can have the intelligence to make local decisions, without having to communicate with the cloud servers and wait for a decision to be made there and then pushed down to the field.
