SE Suite - EDM

Orchestrate your distributed edge infrastructure remotely with ease. Get Utthunga’s Smart Enterprise Suite-EDM to provision, manage, and maintain the distributed edge devices remotely and securely!


With the growing importance of digitalization, data from the field devices is critical. As industrial units heavily rely on distributed edge devices for processing and relaying field data, even an iota of data loss or fault in the edge device may cause substantial loss in revenue. Therefore, a proper mechanism to monitor and manage the distributed edge devices is very important.

The Global Edge Market is Predicted to Multiply 14x from its Current Value in the Period of 2020 – 2030.

Conventionally, diagnosing the health of edge devices has been done through periodic site inspections. However, it is not a feasible solution for a growing manufacturing enterprise with multiple facilities across geographical locations. Some of the challenges faced by industries due to the conventional edge management approach are:

Manual Provisioning and Maintaining

With industries having multiple plants across geographies, the location of edge devices is also spatially distributed. Relying on the site visits to onboard and maintain the edge device hardware and edge stack manually, is extremely unfeasible, costly and time-consuming.

Security Risks

As edge devices act as the doorway to the IT domain, they are exposed to multiple security risks. Depending on the security experts to deploy proper security measures in place and install regular security updates on each device, may cause the enterprise to face serious consequences due to unwanted security breaches.

High OpEx

Realizing the faults / damages/incorrect configuration in the edge devices at a later stage and counting on the technical experts to visit the site to repair the edge devices in time, incurs a huge operational cost. Also, this is an impractical solution for industries that are scaling-up.

What is Smart Enterprise (SE) Suite®– Edge Device Manager (EDM)?

SE Suite®is part of Smart Enterprise Suite that is an umbrella of intelligent solutions engineered by Utthunga. SE Suite®-EDM allows provisioning, configuring and managing the health of the edges securely. The key features of SE Suite® -EDM are:

On Demand-Sync

 For security reasons, the SE Suite ® EDM portal does not connect to and push the updates to the edge devices. The connection between the edge device and the EDM portal is always edge device initiated configuration updates, etc. The portal supports HTTPS, Pull mode, etc.

Offline Update

For security or other architectural reasons, certain edge devices are not connected to internet. The upgrades of such edge devices can be done in an offline mode using fEDM solution to cover the air-gapped systems.

Health Monitoring

SE Suite® -EDM consists of a comprehensive dashboard, where you can view the real-time insights on all the gateways, deployments, packages, devices, and modules. It allows monitoring the health of all the edge devices deployed across all the plants.

On-Prem/Cloud Support

SE Suite®– EDM can be installed on the Cloud or on-premise alongside other applications enabling data access irrespective of the time and place.

Bulk Application Deployment

Using SE Suite® -EDM the operator can install and/or update any application, firmware patch, security patch, and application updates remotely at scale

Other Technical Features of SE Suite® -EDM

  • Updating of devices with distribution packages throughout their life cycle
  • Standard workflow for onboarding of devices with TPM information
  • Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) for better user management
  • Secure by design. Implementing certificate-based authentication, TLS 1.2-based transportation and credentials-based storage
  • Rugged and modular design with containerized modules
  • Support for Ansible automation
  • Monitor device history logs for better decision-making

Why Utthunga’s Smart Enterprise (SE) Suite®-Edge Device Manager?

Choosing Utthunga’s SE Suite® -EDM is a win-win proposition for you. Here are the reasons

Integrating EDM with an Existing Edge Stack

If you have already deployed edge devices but are struggling to find the right edge device manager compatible with your existing 3rd party edge stack, you can choose to integrate Utthunga’s SE Suite® -EDM into your stack to complete your edge infrastructure.

Deploying Complete Edge Package

If you just have the edge hardware but are unsure about whether to build or buy the edge stack, then choosing SE Suite® -EDM and another SE Suite components, the Edge Stack, will serve your purpose.

Applications of SE Suite®-EDM

SE Suite® -EDM is a suitable choice for several edge deployment scenarios. The edge devices could be distributed over a geographic expanse while the assets or the edge devices can be static or moving.

Distributed Static Assets

 The field devices like flow meters on the oil pipeline, IEDs in substations and utilities, generators, machines, solar panels in solar farms could be spread across a geographical expanse. The edges devices monitoring these nodes can be managed using Utthunga’s SE Suite®-EDM. The cost and complexity of managing such edge devices is tremendous.

Single-Roof Static Assets

Assets like machines, boilers, chillers, energy meters and several others can be placed in a demarcated area like a factory or a process plant. The maintenance and monitoring of the edge devices in such plants can require a lot of human labor, cost, and time. Utthunga’s SE Suite®-EDM solution enables you to keep a check on the health and functioning of such edge nodes.

Mobile Assets

Mobile assets like earth moving equipment, rail cars, etc. are also used for various functions in mining, construction, logistics, and other companies. The mobile assets themselves are the field devices here and are often fitted with the edge devices also. It can be difficult to monitor the health of such mobile assets. Our SE Suite® -EDM solution is perfectly capable of managing these edges devices.
