Softing Industrial presents the dataFEED edgeGate, a new gateway for industrial IoT and Industry 4.0 solutions. The gateway integrates connectivity for bidirectional data exchange with Microsoft Azure IoT Suite Connected factory.
Softing’s new dataFEED edgeGate is a gateway connecting devices in industrial networks with cloud applications. In addition to standard OPC UA and MQTT protocols, the gateway also integrates Microsoft’s Azure IoT OPC Proxy and Publisher components. This facilitates bidirectional and highly secure communication with Microsoft Azure IoT Suite Connected factory, and it reduces efforts for system integration and configuration to a minimum.
Microsoft Azure IoT Suite Connected factory enables the connection and monitoring of industrial equipment and devices in the cloud - using OPC Unified Architecture - for insightful analytics that help optimize performance and efficiencies across industrial devices, production lines, and factory as a whole.
