Edge Device-to-Cloud, the Future of IoT!

Advantech's device-to-cloud solution realizes the possibility for edge devices to pass equipment and environmental data to cloud platforms directly. They also enable the utilization of cloud platform tools to perform statistical analysis and visualization of data, so that users can understand the status of the equipment and environment at a glance. In addition to solving typical problems associated with building IoT applications, which tend to be widely distributed and composed of many devices, they also reduce inspection costs, improve immediacy, and facilitate the remote management of decentralized sites.

Fully Compatible with Azure IoT Hub, Speed Up System Implementation

Public cloud services do not require the high costs associated with equipment overheads such as servers and switches, and this can significantly reduce entry barriers to IoT applications while also shortening the development cycle. In addition to the advantages of low management burden, low maintenance cost, and high scalability, cloud platforms also provide application systems, data analysis, and PaaS services, which can add true core value to IoT big data.

Local Storage and Break-Point Resume, Ensure Zero Data Loss During Wireless Communication

Public cloud storage is highly reliable due to automatic data backup and countermeasures against data loss from hardware damage. In addition, Advantech edge sensing devices support local storage and provide HTTP functionality, which allow data to be stored locally in the event of communication instability or disconnection, and transmission can then be resumed when the network is restored.
