Develop smart services applications that are simple, secure, and cost effective
Equipment manufacturers and information system providers use egdedin technology to develop remote service applications for equipment management, monitoring and diagnostics, remote access, firmware and digital content updates as well as online service delivery. Equipment manufacturers and information systems providers use edgedin Foundation platform to enable secure access to equipment operational and health status data across many disparate and heterogeneous environments including OEMs and customer networks.
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 smart services applications.
The restraint of current device connectivity
Developing innovative and advanced connected products and services for equipment and remote assets require different kind of connectivity and communication technology. Remote assets and equipment need to be built with communication capabilities for sending and receiving data across any type of network to support the delivery of powerful and cost-efficient Smart Services solutions.
Smart Services Challenges
Product manufacturers compelled to enable next generation connected products and services have to overcome many hurdles in order to deliver remote services and support equipment and systems at customers sites. These challenges include but not limited to:
Complex implementation of equipment secure connectivity behind customers firewalls especially when equipments are required to both receive and send data or if there's 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 service applications that exchange customers information and access customers networks.
Interoperability and enterpise application integration between different equipments and other information systems and enterprise applications. Even with industry standards in place there are still critical underlying communication issues to be dealt with in order to enable interoperability between connected equipment and applications.
Steep learning curve associated with new technology solutions and 3rd party connectivity products. This also adds a lot of risk when equipment manufacturers are required to integrate their monitoring 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 equipments and intelligent assets 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.
Smart Services Challenges. Solved.
edgedin technology simplifies enterprise application development for connected products. edgedin unique approach to equipment connectivity reduces the cost of connected applications and enables interoperability between equipment and information systems. Here is why our approach is different:
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 equipment manufacturers to have any proprietary knowledge of edgedin underlying technology or the need to integrate any of its components with their products.
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 equipment manufacturers to significantly reduce the cost of developing connected products and services by adopting the Web applications and services model and eliminate the need to integrate and customize 3rd party proprietary products.
edgedin technology enables equipment manufacturers to access data and information stored in their equipments directly if required without the need to transfer data from the equipment to a central server infrastructure. This minimizes the demand on data center infrastructure and leads to greater protection and security of equipment data and sensitive customer information. It also reduces the cost of such data center infrastructure.
edgedin platform enables interoperability through Web Services technology. The Web connectivity method offered by edgedin platform allows for anywhere-Web Services. This allows equipments and intelligent assets to communicate and exchange information with other equipment, 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.
