PIECING TOGETHER THE EDGE AND CLOUD PUZZLE

There is a frantic effort to update IT standards to suit machine- and manufacturing requirements.

The ultimate goal is to realize the vision of seamless connectivity from the factory floor to the office door, from the machine operator all the way to the chief executive.

Where the cloud enters the factory

One of the new challenges arising through the use of edge-, fog-, and cloud architectures is the connection of components to each other and to the public cloud. 

An important element of developing a solution capturing all pieces is the IoT Framework SUSiEtec. Within Industry 4.0 applications, it connects all the components and provides analysis and processing of the data generated.

SUSiEtec dissolves the traditional border between data generation, processing, and provision, enabling the fusion of IT and OT.


SUSiEtec Edge computing uses the local network’s processing power to control time-critical processes right on site. 

Data gets buffered locally, compressed, and handed off to the cloud according to pre-defined rules. This enhances process security, reduces bandwidth demands, and lowers operating costs, thus meeting the real-time demands of industrial IoT.

SUSiEtec enables companies to adopt a hybrid, scalable approach to their IoT scenarios combining the advantages of an on-premise solution with professional cloud infrastructures.

To meet this end, SUSiEtec is completely integrating Edge devices, Gateways, Fog Computing and Server products with the cloud infrastructure.
