HMS Networks Introduces Anybus Edge to Realise Full Potential of IIoT
Anybus Edge is ideal for monitoring applications and allows all connected industrial equipment to be managed from IoT applications in a smart way
HMS Networks, a leading independent supplier of industrial communication solutions, announced the launch of Anybus Edge, an innovative end-to-end solution for Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).
The latest solution is powered by the new HMS Hub and provides exact edge intelligence and versatile cloud connectivity to the industrial equipment. Irrespective of the application, the new solution serves as a bridge between the cloud and factory floor, to enable industrial organisations in realising the IIoT in a secure and easy way.
In order to connect and integrate data between industrial operations and enterprise systems and IoT software, HMS Networks introduced a new end-to-end concept that features Anybus Edge Gateways. This gateway is used to connect to industrial hardware, the HMS Hub.
Secure and easy way
Through Anybus Edge Gateways, data from machines and devices can be accessed in a secure and easy way. In addition, it also enables full data and device management over the lifecycle of an application. The Edge Gateways, deployed on the factory floor, allow intelligent decentralised operations that can be performed close to the sources of data.
From these gateways, user-defined data is provided through HMS Hub to the cloud over a safe and secure connection. The solution is ideal for monitoring applications and allows all connected industrial equipment to be managed from IoT applications in a smart way.
The Anybus Edge Gateways are closely connected to HMS Hub, which includes a powerful agent offering services and actions to control outbound and inbound gateway data, such as all configuration, security and device management aspects.
In addition, HMS Hub allows full data integration to third party clouds and enterprise systems in a secure and simple way, enabling the system value to be realised for all kinds of IIoT applications.
