    Martin Thunman discusses the advantages, obstacles and future outlook for edge computing.

  5. 09/03/2021 Making edge to cloud integration pay

    Suzanne Gill finds out why it is important to implement plant connectivity from the edge to the cloud to make the best use of data made available thanks to the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).

  6. 22/06/2020 Edge automation solutions

    Red Lion’s FlexEdge Intelligent Edge Automation Platform is said to bring industrial data together as never before to transform edge computing.

  7. 14/04/2020 Big data analytics moves right to the edge

    Brendan O’Dowd looks at the implications of the introduction of the IEEE 802.3cg standard for industrial automation and what it might mean for 4-20mA or HART systems.

  8. 06/04/2020 From the cloud to the edge

    Dr. Christopher Anhalt explains the difference between cloud and edge computing and how they can work together for the successful implementation of IIoT solutions.

  9. 16/03/2020 A shift is coming

    Those already using edge computing might be considered early adopters, but recent research suggests that a shift is coming. Greg Hookings reports.

  10. 22/03/2019 Extending the secure edge

    Many business leaders find it hard to understand industrial control system (ICS) cyber security challenges as there are so many factors contributing to their complexity and so cyber security is one of the issues that is delaying adoption of Industry 4.0, says Erik Halthen.
