Cloud computing and big data are the core of Industry 4.0
and digital transformation. With businesses keen on leveraging the exponential volume
of sensor data for actionable insights, theyface an undesirable situation of
cloud latency and network overload due to the heavy reliance on cloud. The
traditional architectures are unable to cope with the modern demands. It is
critical to optimize the existing communications architectures and the associated
security aspects. Driven by the un-sustainable reliance on cloud for storing
and processing OT data, it’s no surprise that end users, OEMS and system
integrators are pushing for improved edge capabilities.
One of the big enablers for industrial edge computing is the
increase in the compute power of the low footprint hardware. The
miniaturization of SoC chips as well as their increased computing power has accelerated
the implementation of analytics and real-time processing in the edge.
Utthunga’s offers state of the art Edge stack for easy integration and customization for varied use cases. It is a robust accelerator, already is used by several OEMs globally. Our expertise in edge stack development goes beyond containerized and modular development. Itextends to implementing solutions that meets your industry specific, cybersecurity, scalability, and subscription needs.
Utthunga’s Edge Platform
The development of a customizable edge computing platform for deploying and managing edge IoT systems is a complexprocess. Utthunga offers a ready-to-deploy and pre-tested edge framework that makes this development process easy.It helps accelerate your edge application development lifecycle right from programming edge intelligence to building your application solutions forcollection, edge provisioning,edge orchestrations, deployment and upgrade of edge nodes.
Key Aspects of Utthunga’s Edge Framework
The platform’s IoT edge architecture supports industrial
edge Docker Containers with pre-built modules. The cloud agnostic accelerator
acts as a gateway for connecting your on premise, cloud or industrial edge
assetswith cloud based IIoT applications.
Customizeand accelerate your edge application development with our wide spectrum of edge engineering services.
Data Acquisition and Delivery
The frameworksupports various industry protocols like
Modbus, OPC, NMEA, and other open and proprietary protocols. We can readily
implement both custom and new communication protocols on demand. This enables
real time data aggregation, integration and structuring of the edge datato
provide a single and unified view of the edge data.Designed for flexibility and
extensibilityfor multiple edge devices, it supports:
Downlink physical interfaces: RS232, RS485, Ethernet, AI, DI, and USB
Delivers data over OPC UA, MQTT, XML/JSON over web services
Uplink interfaces: Ethernet, 3G, 4G, etc.
Theplatform offers built-in security features through Docker
edge containers that makes it difficult for any single attack to take down the
entire network. This software containerization and isolation of other processes
and applications limits the effect of a vulnerability to that particular
container. Data protection is ensured through regular OTA transmission of
Provides secure posting of data to the IIoT portals
Secure identification and authentication using TPM
Secure data transmission using Open SSL/TLS 1.2
Intelligent Edge Analytics
The framework delivers edge analytics in real-time and
in-situ for data collected from smart sensors and connected devices. Storing and
preparing the data, training and processing of the algorithmic models are essential
to transform the raw data into insights. The local intelligence and automation
ensures better decisions for
Real-time asset health monitoring
Perform edge/contextual analytics
Alerts and notifications based on OT data
Anomaly detection, predictive maintenance and more
The accelerator assists the edge update management system
where all modules are secured with regular updates OTA transmissions. The edge
portal communicates with the IoT device manager for visualization of the overall
edge health monitoring, performance,operation, connectivity, maintenance and
security as part of the larger interconnected IIoT ecosystem.
Enhanced control management: Rule-based classification and alarms configuration
Data & Redundancy managementmodules: To sync and control data pileup at the edge
Network management module: To manage device connectivity (offline or with intermittent connections)
Web Portal: HMI for data visualization and easy viewing of data of the Edge device
Edge Device Management (EDM): The IoT Edge Device Manager manages your distributed edge infrastructure to provision and maintain the edge devices remotely and effectively. For more details on automated device registration/updates/upgrades of edge devices, visit our EDM productpage.

What Is Obsolescence Management? One of the prominent effects of industry 4.0 is the massive change to the industrial equipments usage and their management. This involves not only maintaining their aging electronic components but also adding new ones, while ensuring it doesn’t disrupt their existing operations. Not only this; the adoption of the new age […]
Smooth IIoT operations go far beyond deploying smart devices and flawless networking capabilities. To harness the power of IIoT with multiple edge devices scattered over distributed locations, an edge device manager solution is highly crucial. These edge device managers not only automate the firmware, software, and security patch updates, but also enable secure provisioning, and […]
The introduction of DevOps has changed the role of the quality assurance (QA) team. Earlier, the role of QA was all about functional testing and regression after a product is deployed. The DevOps approach focuses on automating the entire process in software development to achieve speed and agility. It also includes automating the testing process […]
