The Internet of Things (IoT) is often associated with devices that communicate with each other and with people through the network. All these devices need a bridge to pass raw data through the network to reach a central server for further processing. The IoT have been widely used on manufacturing floors, energy grids, transportation systems and bridge structure monitoring.
For devices installed at remote, unattended and harsh environments, a stable and reliable communication bridge between the end device and central server is a must. Advantech develops a series of RISC to x86-based Embedded IoT Gateway platforms fulfill that requirement. It is efficient, stable, able to operate 24/7, built with extremely reliable hardware, and easy to integrate with back-end maintenance/operating systems.
