If you are attending the VMworld show in Las Vegas, Nevada next week, don’t forget to visit the IoT Pavillion section and get your hands on the Vortex Edge PMQ conveyor belt demo.
The Vortex Edge PMQ demo is a conveyor belt system deployed with various sensors and is connected to a Vortex Edge Smart Gateway which collects and analyzes data locally using IBM’s advanced PMQ predictive analytics software. Key data is shared with IT systems in the cloud for business intelligence results sharing. One such IT system is VMware’s Pulse IoT Center which is deployed locally on an Vortex Edge Industrial Server. Pulse IoT Center provides device management services allowing the gateway to be monitored and updated with new software or analytical models.
Vortex Edge PMQ is a fully integrated hardware, data connectivity and predictive analytics solution that enables businesses to identify and fix imminent problems before it disrupts the operation. This helps reduce maintenance cost and significantly increase productivity.
This collaboration was made possible with VMware, ADLINK and IBM to jointly test and integrate their respective IoT solutions to offer customers a comprehensive, supported IoT offering featuring the requisite hardware, software and services to tackle their IoT initiatives.
“VMware and ADLINK have a common goal of speeding up IoT adoption for organizations by enabling their solutions to reduce the time and effort required to setup an end-to-end IoT solution and improve the experience. VMware and ADLINK together will provide a comprehensive edge infrastructure solution to power IoT analytics platforms that deliver new business insights for mutual customers.” — Mimi Spier, vice president, Internet of Things, VMware
ADLINK is ‘Leading EDGE COMPUTING’ by delivering the network nodes that enable practical and scalable IoT systems. Building on its strong heritage in embedded computing, ADLINK provides the hardware and advanced Edge-aware software capabilities necessary for the multi-vendor, multi-standard connectivity required in end-to-end IT/OT business solutions. With its strategic partners VMware, OSIsoft and IBM, ADLINK reduces the complexity and helps speed the deployment of enterprise IoT systems that liberate data from vendor silos and other islands-of-automation, thus enabling business improvement in terms of operational excellence, enhanced customer service and support for new business models.
“The world of IoT is exciting and daunting at the same time. OT and IT organizations approach very aligned goals from different points of view, and a common denominator is hard to find. ADLINK and VMware’s collaboration shows what happens when we bridge the divide. Creating new disruptive industry solutions takes a lot more than any one vendor can provide – and our ecosystem approach is second to none in the industry in terms of practical experience.” — Rob Risany, executive vice president — IoT Strategy, Solutions & Technology, ADLINK
