Multi-Tech Systems, a Mounds View, Minnesota-based global supplier of M2M and IoT communication solutions, as per recent reports, has announced the general availability of its new “mPower Edge Intelligence” embedded software that builds on its application enablement platform, to deliver programmability, network flexibility, enhanced security, and manageability for scalable IIoT solutions.
mPower basically is an amalgamation and evolution of the MultiTech smart router and gateway firmware platforms. Additionally, apart from the ongoing support of the current feature-sets, MultiConnect rCell 100 Series customers reportedly will now have programmability access to the industry-leading MultiConnect Conduit gateway, while allowing gateway customers to reap the benefits of additional security features that are currently available on the rCell.
The new mPower Edge Intelligence embedded software ensures easy integration with a wide variety of popular upstream IoT platforms, in its attempt to streamline edge-to-cloud data management and analytics, while also providing the programmability and processing capability to execute critical tasks at the edge of the network to ensure reduced latency; optimized network and cloud services costs, and core functionality – even when the connection to the network is not available.
“When it comes to adding value and making smart choices, particularly related to security, the ability to make decisions at the edge of Industrial IoT networks is an absolute must,” stated Prasad Kandikonda, VP, Engineering, MultiTech. “mPower Edge Intelligence reflects what we’ve learned from more than five years delivering smart devices to a variety of industries and applications that require device programmability, security and dependable upgrade paths across our product lines.”
