Robustel strengthen their industry leading portfolio of Industrial IoT routers and gateways with a brand-new series of cost competitive, fully integrated EDGE Computing gateways.
With a deep, well-established product range specialising in industrial IoT/M2M solutions, Robustel are always looking for new and innovative ways to service customers in key industrial verticals. Since the company’s founding in 2010 the key directive has been to listen and engage with the market to provide solutions that meet real world requirements and a competitive price point allowing for the scale and potential of massive IoT.
With the release of Robustel’s first generation 5G Industrial Gateway the R5020 in 2020, the company has seen a massive global trend in customers relying on Cloud IoT infrastructure to deliver a variety of IoT solutions across all verticals; However, there is a growing subsector of customers with demand for more processing being performed at the network edge, to avoid unnecessary network noise and congestion from high volumes of data being streamed over the cellular network.
The requirement for EDGE/FOG processing sees a need for new generation devices, boasting the cutting-edge network connectivity and management features customers have come to know from Robustel devices but with the inclusion of much higher levels of onboard smarts and processing combined with a more versatile and scalable operating system.
This is where the Edge Gateway series from Robustel hopes to revolutionise the industrial computer + router market by providing products that are not only available at a mass market price point but that also offer specifications and features that customers desperately need.
“Traditionally the industrial edge IoT market has been the domain of two very distinct solutions…” says Robustel Global SVP of Sales and Product Marketing, Desmond Kuang, “We have seen customers unable to scale successfully because they are either buying a solution that is completely over specified for their requirements or they are trying to build their own solution with an industrial PC + router combination that adds an additional point of failure. Our Edge Gateway products are designed to solve both market issues in a single elegant solution.”
