The partnership focuses to deliver real-time data acquisition
A leader in long-range wireless radios and edge computing platforms, FreeWave Technologies and a leading provider of secure, industrial automation software solutions, AUTOSOL, are partnering to deliver a fully integrated Edge solution that optimizes real-time data acquisition via a MQTT publish/subscribe SCADA architecture.
The merged solution will greatly improve data analytics and decision-making. In addition to that, AUTOSOL’s eACM brings an extensive library of proprietary equipment protocols to the Edge.
How the combined process will take place?
The AUTOSOL eACM running on FreeWave’s hardened, C1D2 ZumIQ™ Edge Computer and the ZumLink™ IQ Edge Intelligent Radio, will convert virtually any field device such as flow computers, PLCs and Controllers to be MQTT-enabled. The hardened Zum platform and its low power requirement serves as a reliable home for applications that place analytics and intelligence alongside remote assets even when infrastructure is not available. As a result, the ZumLink IQ delivers an all-in-one solution for both secure data transmission over long distances and application deployment.
AUTOSOL CEO Douglas Osburn says, “As new predictive tools are coming to the market, customers want access to key operational data faster.” “Together, eACM and the Zum products deliver a powerful solution for industrial companies looking to do just that with their SCADA system. We believe this partnership will deliver immediate and measurable IIoT benefits to existing and new customers”, he assured.
Both companies are individually empowered with smart and efficient technologies
With deployments in over 32 countries, FreeWave Technologies products are leveraged by industrial end users and OEMs alike to connect, control and optimize remote machines and processes in ways that enable smarter decisions, significant efficiency gains and immediate cost savings. The company helped thousands of customers including government and defence providing UAV/drone, precision agriculture, energy and smart grid networks.
AUTOSOL has been committed to providing reliable, flexible solutions for the automation and data delivery needs for mission-critical infrastructure. The firm’s engineers have many years of experience in industrial automation system design, development and implementation. The company also has extensive knowledge of the entire SCADA system – from the devices that our products communicate with and our relationships with the device manufacturers, to the HMIs used to view the entire system.
Both companies empower customers in common and complementary markets. Providing Oil & Gas, utilities, warehousing and distribution logistics, all of whom require the reliable collection of asset and sensor data for process automation, performance monitoring, asset tracking, preventative maintenance and compliance reporting.
