IoT digital experiments can create business value
It has been announced that ADLINK Technology will be showcasing its IoT digital experiments at Hannover Fair. Its ‘Connect Stream Control’ technology reportedly enables companies to test the business potential of IoT-applications. During the show, ADLINK will demo a smart pallet solution, which is just one of a number of IoT implementations developed with customers globally that began initially as a digital experiment.
The smart pallet solution uses the ADLINK Edge platform to deliver optimised operations, reduced losses and improved accuracy. Visitors to the ADLINK stand will be invited to take part in an interactive pallet-stacking game for a chance to win a prize by being the fastest and most accurate. Success will be determined by visitors’ ability to use real time data to inform their decisions.
“The ADLINK Edge platform provides all the resources required to get IoT digital experiments up and running, allowing organisations to think big, start small and work fast,” said Lawrence Ross, General Manger, Software & Solutions, ADLINK. “We believe strongly that digital experiments will form the basis of the next generation of business models and processes shaping industry landscapes.”
Other demonstrations on show will highlight how ADLINK Edge can be used to deploy an IoT solution in an industrial environment by connecting assets, streaming data and controlling operations. ADLINK consultants will be available to advise on real-world proven practical applications that deliver predictive maintenance and operational efficiency, and open up opportunities for building new revenue streams. In addition, a selection of partners will be present to show how ADLINK adds value by enabling security, AI (Artificial Intelligence), analytics and machine learning at the Edge.
ADLINK’s Edge platform aims to provide businesses with all the benefits of digital experimentation, is vendor agnostic, and enables timely implementation of experiments without associated upfront costs. It bridges the IT and OT (operations) divide with a set of integrated services for end-point monitoring, device management, visualisation, analytics and security. These are integrated together to create intelligent devices that can react to change and the world around them. It makes IoT simple by guaranteeing that data is made available, where it needs to be, precisely when it needs to be there and in the correct format.
ADLINK approaches each project individually to determine which areas are likely to be affected by the solution, from ground level operations to admin and resource allocation. Each digital experiment is defined at the intersection of people, places and affected assets, where most value can be created.
