Eurotech announces its collaboration with Orange to enable and simplify IoT adoption from edge to cloud. The collaboration aims to combine Eurotech’s IoT Edge capabilities with Orange’s IoT platform Live Objects.
Orange’s IoT platform Live Objects is a secured and resilient IoT SaaS platform hosted in France. Live Objects offers a network agnostic IoT services basement by providing multi-connectivity, enhanced data collection, IoT Fleet management and Data storage & indexing. Live Objects is open to any cloud services (such as Azure, AWS, Google Cloud) and any data sources.
Orange Live Objects can interact with Eurotech’s IoT Edge Components. Eurotech provides rugged, certified Industrial IoT Gateways and edge computers enhanced with Everyware Software Framework (ESF) - Eurotech’s IoT Edge Framework. ESF allows edge computing capabilities like filtering, aggregation and analysis of the specific data coming from IoT devices, and provides a wide set of field protocol libraries to allow maximum integrability and flexibility of gateways to interface with sensors and other devices. The ESF Wires feature allow the building of data pipelines for the visual programming of IoT and edge computing applications.
Management of edge devices
ESF also provides seamless integration with Everyware Cloud (EC), Eurotech’s IoT Integration Hub for the management of edge devices – e.g. providing device provisioning and remote configuration options. Orange’s Live Objects platform interacts with EC through APIs and performs further data analytics, storage and management, and integration with business IT applications. Both Eurotech and Live Objects offer a powerful complementary service for Industry & smart building verticals.
“Eurotech and Orange offer an integrated and completely managed end-to-end IoT solution to address IoT use cases from edge to cloud” states Giuseppe Surace, Eurotech CP&MO. “Eurotech’s edge capabilities provide trusted components – rugged IoT Gateways and Edge computers – and a leading software framework for seamless edge-to-cloud integration for the management of IoT devices deployments, large and small. The strength of Orange’s Live Objects platform, combined with the richness of Eurotech IoT Edge solution, will help pave the way for new advanced IoT cloud and edge computing services for Industry 4.0 & smart building verticals,” adds Giuseppe Surace.
