Industrial Internet

Background

As an important part of the new infrastructure, the Industrial Internet has become a hot area of interest. To response 「Made in China 2025」and 「Industry 4.0」, more and more industrial enterprises are seeking digitalisation and intelligent transformation, and the cloud for industrial equipment has therefore become a challenge that enterprises must face on the way to transformation. However, with the coexistence of multiple protocols and highly heterogeneous devices in the industrial field, the existing solutions are not adapted to the different needs of edge OT, IT and CT. To solve this problem, we implement the connection and data aggregation of heterogeneous devices, complete the subsequent edge or cloud computing, and help relevant enterprises in the field to quickly implement the functions of the edge layer under the industrial internet architecture in a collaborative way with the cloud and edge. EMQ officially released an integrated cloud and edge solution designed for industrial internet application scenarios.

Lightweight Edge Computing Industrial Internet Platform

Lightweight Edge Computing Industrial Internet Platform
Implementing industrial protocol parsing, data aggregation and streaming analysis at the edge, and storing the data analysed through streaming in a lightweight time series database deployed at the edge, from which applications running at the edge can retrieve and process the data and present it to the final user. The Edge Manager running at the edge provides a management console that enables easy software configuration and management.

Benefits & Value

superiority1

High real-time, high security, deployed at the nearest edge gateway or IPC, close to the device, real-time response; data does not need to be in the cloud, improving security, as well as reducing transmission costs

superiority1

Full industrial protocol support, including Modbus, OPCUA, IEC61850 and IEC104, as well as providing southbound device control

superiority1

Multi-node, based on standard MQTT IoT data aggregation, offline data storage and edge cloud data bridging capabilities

superiority1

SQL-based streaming data processing support, the function of built-in rules engine and implementation of edge data analysis

superiority1

Browser-based visual management console and online control of industrial data collection and control, data aggregation and edge analysis from the cloud

Cloud Edge Collaborative Industrial Internet Platform

Cloud Edge Collaborative Industrial Internet Platform
Through the underlying container-based application distribution and orchestration capabilities at the edge like KubeEdge, the cloud edge management channel provided by KubeEdge enables centralized management of Neuron, Edge and Kuiper instances deployed at the edge in the cloud, thus enabling online management and update of data collection, aggregation and analysis business logic at the edge in the cloud.

Benefits & Value

superiority1

Multi-location, multi-node distributed support, where multiple edge nodes will exist, possibly different workshops in a plant, or even industrial parks in different cities for centralized management

superiority1

Large-scale device access capability and analysis of industrial data and data from other business systems (e.g. ERP, CRM, etc.) in the cloud for more valuable analysis

superiority1

Cloud edge collaboration capabilities to achieve edge node control and the cloud achieve control of the physical nodes at the edge, and to open up the network connection from the cloud to the gateways, IPC and so on behind the NAT, to achieve control from the cloud to the edge. Implement application and middleware deployment, distribution and deployment of customer applications and software. Operation and maintenance management capabilities realize monitoring the running status of software, automatic recovery and other functions and realize log management, etc.
