What is Edge Computing?

Edge computing is poised to boost existing OT capabilities and advance Industry 4.0 maturity.

For the past 30 years, industrial vision systems have unlocked autonomous capabilities for industrial enterprises across a variety of tasks.

It's common for cameras and scanners to be left out of discussions of the industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), but the truth is that these devices represent some of the earliest and most sophisticated applications of sensor technology and play critical roles in reliability, traceability, and quality.


With the rise of IIoT,

there is an explosion of new connected assets and devices, including smart cameras, and these connected endpoints are generating much more data than an individual operation can manage on its own. It is now impractical for each operation to develop and dedicate resources to manage all the devices.


This is where Edge Computing comes in to empower the connected operation.
