Industrial IOT Cloud Connectivity with IIoT Edge Gateway Software
IIoT Edge Gateway Software from Cirrus Link Solutions is designed to bridge the gap between OT and IT by standardizing operational data using MQTT / Sparkplug technology and transmitting it into the cloud through our four Cloud Injector Modules. With the operational data from your Edge Devices in the cloud, you can harness the power of big data applications, predictive maintenance, predictive analytics, and AI, allowing you to streamline operations, reduce costs, and gain valuable insight into your business processes.
All four Cloud Injector Modules are available for both Ignition Gateway and Ignition Edge, allowing data to flow directly to the cloud from any point in the network, and easily connect any tag data to their respective cloud service provider’s infrastructure. End users of Ignition can select the module that best fits their needs. Using the AWS Injector for Amazon Web Services (AWS,) tag data will flow into the AWS Kinesis Streams & Firehose or DynamoDB using an easy to read JSON representation to take full advantage of AWS and all the benefits it offers. The AZURE Injector Module connects any tag data from Ignition into the Microsoft Azure cloud infrastructure through the IoT Hub, also using a simple JSON representation. The Google Cloud Platform (GCP) Injector Module enables end users of Ignition to select data from the Ignition platform to be sent into their infrastructure, giving users easy access to all the tools and big data analysis the platform has to offer. Similarly, the IBM Cloud Injector Module enables end users of Ignition to select data from the Ignition platform to be sent into the IBM Cloud infrastructure to utilize all the power of IBM Watson’s machine learning and predictive maintenance.
In addition to reducing costs by improving operations with big data analytics and AI, Ignition with Cloud Injector Modules saves on cloud service provider charges. All major cloud providers charge for data ingest, and some require data sampled at a fixed rate, so sending data periodically when it has not changed is expensive. IIoT Edge Gateway Software provides the solution by sending exception only events to the cloud and utilizing a simple database sampler to create a sampled data table in the cloud. If this gives you a 10% data change rate, it will save 90% of your data ingest charges.
Digital Transformation enables insight across enterprise value chains, enhancing competitiveness and improving customer experience. It is critical to have a complete strategy for implementing Digital Transformation that addresses the data standardization, connectivity of different applications, and security and ease of integration with cloud services such as AWS and Azure. IIoT Edge Gateway Software designed by Cirrus Link Solutions provides all of this and is backed by years of experience providing top-quality IIoT.
