Industrial Edge Computing

Open Device and Data Integration Platform for Industrial IoT

Manufacturers, municipalities and building operators own critical assets, from HVAC to transportation and robotic systems, whose output, efficiency, and safety can be transformed with data. The digital transformation needed to map data from these assets to analytics and automation demands an edge computing architecture – comprised of IoT, wireless and LTE/5G, and industrial control systems – that seamlessly integrates with modern IT infrastructure. This requires an integration platform built on open networking and data standards that does not lock in user data, is extensible to both legacy and emerging IoT and controls protocols, with the freedom to process workloads at the edge or in the cloud.

Dialog’s edge computing platform weaves an industrial IoT-centric ‘data fabric’ that can connect any edge device - whether a sensor, meter or a machine - horizontally to its peers or vertically to automation and controls services, industrial and operational systems, and cloud or edge AI and analytics (IoT data fabric infographic). Furthermore, we remove the complexities of distributed control networks and we provide simple, secure access to the underlying device data with the software tools and support you need to build your edge application.

SmartServer™ IoT Product Family

ssiot

Our flagship SmartServer IoT Edge Server and companion interface expansion modules streamline integration of industrial controls in building and factory automation with edge and cloud computing infrastructure. SmartServer IoT features a complete software stack that delivers out-of-the-box support for industrial communications protocols, data abstraction and management, automation and control services, and IT (through web service APIs)/OT (through BMS and OPC UA interface) integration.

System integrators and solution providers no longer have to pull together expensive point solutions and code custom applications from scratch. SmartServer IoT features a simple-to-use web-based central management system (CMS) with integration and application development tools to support deployment workflows in large scale installtions. SmartServer IoT does not lock in user data, and enables best-of-breed visualization, analytics and AI alongside building automation, SCADA and PLC systems.

SmartServer IoT is extensible to any connectivity or data standard, enabling an edge computing architecture that is autonomous, distributed, resilient, and secure. With a unique combination of an open standards-based approach along with end-to-end integration support, SmartServer IoT stands apart from every other edge server or gateway, making development and integration fast and efficient, licensing very transparent, and system extensions easily supported.
