Cutting-edge industry features a growing number of devices distributed on various industrial sites. All those demands are creating greater technical challenges for a coordinated “cloud + edge” IIoT ecosystem. Collect data from different devicesDevices deployed on industrial sites keep capturing data from different parts of the site, monitoring both the machines and the environment. Different devices communicate with different protocols. This creates compatibility problems for users as most traditional gateways that transmit data support only a few of those protocols.
