Create more meaningful connected experience at home
Product manufacturers embed edgedin technology in their connected products such as home automation devices, security equipment, connected TVs, smart appliances, video game consoles, set-top boxes, home communication gateways, and more to enable built-in Web communication capabilities. With edgedin communication technology, connected devices publish and share content and services and collaborate with others both inside and outside the home network.
edgedin technology provides flexible and powerful platform for product manufacturers, solution providers, and system integrators to protect customer privacy while developing connected services and enabling next-generation connected experience at home.
edgedin solution bundles edgedin Foundation, edgedin apps, edgedin professional services, and our proven methodology for developing and launching connected products and services to solve the biggest challenges in the implementation of connected home applications.
The restraint of current device connectivity
Building connected applications that involve smart devices, appliances, and intelligent systems at home requires different kind of connectivity and communication technology. Smart devices and intelligent systems and equipments need to be built with communication capabilities for sending and receiving data across any type of network to support the delivery of a fully connected home experience.
Connected Home Challenges
Product manufacturers compelled to enable advanced and sophisticated connected home services have to overcome many hurdles in order to implement connected home experience that empowers customers and protect their privacy. These challenges include but not limited to:
Complex implementation of secure connectivity for smart devices and intelligent systems behind customers firewalls especially when devices are required to both receive and send data or if there is a need for bi-directional communication and ad-hoc connectivity.
High cost of implementing connected products and services. In addition to the significant investments in central infrastructure needed by connected applications there is a high cost associated with customization and integration efforts required by 3rd party connectivity products.
Security and protection of sensitive information becomes even more challenging when building connected home applications that exchange customers information and access customers networks.
Interoperability and enterprise application integration between different devices and other information systems and enterprise applications to provide customer support and proactive service. Even with industry standards in place there are still critical underlying communication issues to be dealt with in order to enable interoperability between connected devices and applications.
Steep learning curve associated with new technology solutions and 3rd party connectivity products. This also adds a lot of risk when device manufacturers are required to integrate their applications and device management capabilities with 3rd party proprietary technology.
Connected applications. Unleashed.
Despite the recent technological advancements in network connectivity and the wide spread of Internet based technologies, developing connected applications and systems that encompass next generation smart devices and intelligent systems at home remains challenging and costly due to the current limitations of device connectivity within existing network infrastructures. Existing Web technologies are designed for servers and data centers, however edgedin Foundation platform allows existing Web technologies to easily be adapted to devices, applications, and information systems that are outside the data center and operate under ad-hoc connectivity circumstances.
Connected Home Challenges. Solved.
edgedin technology simplifies enterprise application development for connected products. edgedin unique approach to device connectivity reduces the cost of connected applications and enables interoperability between devices, intelligent systems, and other application. Here is why our approach is different:
edgedin technology enables device manufacturers and intelligent systems providers to access data and information stored in their devices directly if required without the need to transfer data to a central server infrastructure. This minimizes the demand on data center infrastructure and leads to greater protection and security of data and sensitive customer information. It also reduces the cost of such data center infrastructure.
edgedin platform interoperates with any off-the-shelf Web component or Web technology that can be used to build Web applications and services. This allows device manufacturers to significantly reduce the cost of developing connected home applications by adopting the Web applications and services model and eliminate the need to integrate and customize 3rd party proprietary products.
edgedin platform is designed to be used as off-the-shelf Web connectivity module that offers always-Web connectivity over any type of network. edgedin platform does not require device manufacturers to have any proprietary knowledge of edgedin underlying technology or the need to integrate any of its components with their products.
edgedin platform enables interoperability through Web Services technology. The Web connectivity method enabled by edgedin technology allows for anywhere Web Services. This allows smart devices and intelligent systems to communicate and exchange information with other devices, information systems, and enterprise applications in a much more cost effective and easy to adopt model.
edgedin platform allows for the development of loosely-coupled connected applications from connectivity solutions. The use of Web technologies to develop connected products and services lower the knowledge barriers associated with new technology solutions and 3rd party connectivity products.
