Software-Defined Networks, IoT and Next-Generation Infrastructure

IoT Gateways erase the line between OT and IT

The Internet of Things has become an unstoppable wave threatening to transform all devices with Internet-enabling technology. In large deployments (i.e. industrial automation), where thousands of sensors constantly supply information, this has created a need for gateways capable of communicating in various low-power wireless technologies (Zigbee, Bluetooth LE, etc.), as well as collecting and processing

Xeon D ready for growing demands at the network edge

Network computing infrastructure has been expanding for decades, and the network edge is no exception. When it comes to the expanding network edge, density is key; that’s why Intel’s Xeon D SoC processors have been steadily gaining favor. Servers, hot storage(instant access data- ie profile images) and network appliances(firewalls, access points) are being given more

IoT gives predictive maintenance the boost it needs to launch industry 4.0

Predictive maintenance techniques are getting ready to develop beyond human-assisted inspection and correction, into self-maintaining and eventually self-sufficient machines. Industry 3.0 brought information technology into automation, now industry 4.0 is set to take technology further to leverage advantages from things like Big Data, virtualization, cloud and the IoT(Internet of Things). For manufacturing the IoT is
