Industrial product identification to support smart devices
As the Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI) and 5G technology gradually integrate, a new data economy ecosystem is taking shape. As a consequence, Apacer has announced that it will launch its product identification ‘Apacer for Industrial’ in 2019.
Unlike consumer-grade goods which value cost-effectiveness most, from product selection through production, testing and quality control, industrial-grade devices have extremely high standards for quality, reliability and stability. Apacer is launching its new industrial product identification so that all industrial-grade items will be easy to spot at a glance. The Apacer for Industrial identification includes new product labels with QR codes and barcodes that meticulously record production information during the manufacturing process and provides exclusive product serial numbers to fully implement the management and tracking procedures during production, shipping and after-sales service.
Cindy Huang, Vice President of Apacer’s Vertical Market Application Division, said that Apacer has long been investing in resources for improving industrial-grade hardware production as well as the integration of software and firmware. Apacer’s Vertical Market Application Division focuses on seven industrial applications: defence, transportation, networking, factory automation, IoT, healthcare and gaming.
International Data Corporation (IDC) predicts that 25% of global endpoint devices and systems will execute AI algorithms by 2022. With the increasing trend of intelligent industrial applications, the impact of the diversification of smart applications on the digital storage industry is not only limited to product planning, such as capacity and performance. Experts also predict that the industrial market will pivot from quantitative to qualitative, and the threshold for entry will increase substantially.
