Simple, flexible, extended connectivity
Full range of IoT networking options to support both existing devices and future-proof solutions – including Bluetooth 5, 802.15.4, Mesh, Wi-Fi, Cellular and more.

Edge Connect

Secure connectivity and computing platform with containerized edge OS

Containerized edge environment
Ubuntu Core OS with simple ‘Snap’ application packaging system to make it easier for developers to build and maintain applications at the edge

Secure multi-application environment
Easily and securely install and run multiple IoT applications on a single gateway

Easy device connectivity
APIs to gather data from common sensors and beacons – requiring no device or protocol expertise

Cloud integration agents
Integrate with major cloud providers quickly and easily using code samples

Edge Direct

Intuitive tools for orchestration & edge performance

Quickly orchestrate updates and deploy builds
Schedule, manage and apply application and OS updates, and integrates with DevOps systems

Reliable, remote maintenance and upgrades
Remotely upgradeable with atomic transactional upgrades and roll-back ability. Secure OTA updates keep technicians out of the field

Securely provision devices
Gateways are provisioned with secure IDs and encrypted keys, enabling verified field updates

Easily monitor and alert
Monitor, log and create alerts around key performance metrics such as CPU load and connectivity

Edge Protect

End-to-end security for IoT edge infrastructure

Secure from the start
Gateways are created with a Secure Element and encrypted key at the point of manufacture.

Signed updates & verified execution
Initial programming & all future updates are signed & verified for run-time protection.
