ADLINK Technology to Showcase Predictive Maintenance and NFV at IDF16

By Michael Guta August 12, 2016

If all goes as predicted, the Industrial Internet of Things (IoT) is poised to deliver unprecedented growth for the U.S. GDP, with GE economist Marco Annunziata forecasting it will double in the next decade. The IoT will enable the delivery of software services, data analytics and autonomous control from the cloud, with the connectivity that will take place in industrial networks, warehousing infrastructure and building systems. This of course means massive amounts of data, and ADLINK Technology will be showcasing a solution at the upcoming Intel Developer Forum (IDF16) for flexible edge/cloud computing options in data-intensive industries to address some of these challenges.

ADLINK Technology provides embedded building blocks and Application-ready Intelligent Platforms (ARIPs) for the IoT. As part of the Intel Developer Forum, the company will be demonstrating its technology under the banner of, "Operational Excellence Through Edge Analytics," a predictive maintenance for the smart factory.

The company will be using its PMQi solution, which includes ADLINK's MXE-200i cognitive gateway, SETO-1000 industrial appliance, PrismTech Vortex Data Distribution Services (DDS) and IBM PMQ analytics and modeling software. According to the company, “The demonstration features a simulated conveyor belt environment in which data is fed from multiple devices to an intelligent gateway and processed at the edge to create actionable information.”

As more information is generated from all the connected devices in an industrial setting, managing this data effectively is crucial to ensuring high levels of productivity. ADLINK embedded IoT gateway platforms MXE-200i have fieldbus control interface with superior WiFi/LTE/3G enabled edge device/cloud connectivity. This provides a secure and scalable computing gateway with a seamless connection to the cloud with aggregation, filtering and transmission of the data.

The MXE-200i accepts a wide range of connectivity protocols for analog and digital data connections to a wide range of industries so existing hardware's don't have to be replaced. ADLINK's embedded IoT gateway platform is conversant with existing protocols as well as integrating with routing and data collection functions.

The security protocol of this platform uses the latest Intel processors with two key hardware-assisted security enhancements: the Intel Advanced Encryption Standard New Instructions (Intel AES-NI) and Secure Boot. With these security parameters in place, endpoints are secured, thus protecting the content and preventing malicious software from loading. Additional security features from Wind River and McAfee will protect the communication channel, the data and the end device so no programs outside the authorized set can launch.
