Advantech: a unique position in Industrial IoT

Advantech combines history, depth and breadth of its product range, firmware and software tools, and partnerships in all industries.

As a global leader in the design and manufacture of industrial computing and communication devices, Advantech offers product ranges numbering over 10,000 SKUs. These cover all elements of an IoT technology stack from sensor interface to management dashboard, including edge and enterprise computing, visualization and local/wide area wired/wireless communications. At every level we offer multiple technology options in order to offer an optimal choice to the often competing demands of function, environment, certification and, of course, value. This breadth of offering and expertise across the whole IoT stack differentiates Advantech from other suppliers who only offer products at a single level within the architecture, making Advantech's offer a unique proposition on the market.

Hardware options only address part of the IoT story, especially in industrial applications where the interconnection of operations technology (OT) and information technology (IT) worlds continues to pose challenges. Advantech supplements its hardware platforms with a series of software application and device management tools, all intended to make IIoT system development quicker, easier and more robust. Solutions exist both at the edge and enterprise levels, providing accelerated development and deployment in applications such as legacy protocol translation, Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE), Factory Energy Management, Machine Learning and Preventative Maintenance, in addition to more fundamental tools for data recovery/storage, visualization and remote device management.

Open platforms and partnerships

It’s not just the depth and breadth of Advantech's offering which differentiates the company in the market. Whilst others also offer "whole stack" solutions, most of these are based upon closed ecosystems, effectively forcing users to take the complete solution. In contrast, Advantech focuses on building open, standards based platforms, allowing us to plug the gaps in our customers solutions in partnership with them, without compelling them to abandon elements in their solution that are already fixed.

This approach to openness and partnership extends beyond solving an immediate application problem. Once their end to end solution is complete, many domain focused systems integrators choose to actively join Advantech's Co-Creation partner program, extending their global reach by leveraging Advantech's marketplace, partner networks and global sales and support capabilities. This in turn further enriches the ecosystem Advantech is able to bring together to build a solution, adding to the range of options available to partners and clients.

The Internet of Things effect has made deterministic communication more critical to industries such as automotive, manufacturing, utilities and more.

Providing a means for determinism over standard Ethernet enables true real-time communication. 

That’s why we need time sensitive networking

Four classic features and benefit that TSN can bring us are: Time synchronization Frame preemption Time aware shaper, and  Seamless redundancy.

From the perspectives of equipment manufacturers, owners, and maintainers need to have an easy and reliable data management systems to collect equipment data from field sites, Advantech WISE-PaaS/EdgeLink provides a solution for Machine to Intelligent (M2I), and the edge intelligence software for data management. 

Without frequent on-site maintenance and service trips incurring the time and financial costs, users will be able to monitor critical assets, track equipment performance by data management software, receive alarm notifications in the event of a problem and perform system management and configuration using handheld devices. Thus, costs can be substantially reduced and the field equipment and facilities can be better monitored and controlled.
