Edge Intelligence for Industrial and Commercial IoT
Within four years, the amount of data generated by tens of billions of industrial and commercial IoT devices will be massive enough to overwhelm the entire Internet. Our solution? Process, analyze and respond to IoT data right where it originates—at the edge of the network. At FogHorn, our “intelligent edge” software platform enables unprecedented levels of automation, operational efficiency, cost savings and much more.
What is Industrial IoT?
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) consists of interconnected industrial and commercial devices such as sensors, machinery, and computers.
What is Edge Intelligence?
Edge intelligence is a software-based solution based on fog computing which extends data processing and analytics closer to the edge where the IIoT devices reside.
Why move to the edge?
Focusing IIoT operations at the edge reduces overall bandwidth requirements and enables immediate automated responses to time-sensitive conditions.
