Edge computing is powerful. It can help companies monitor and maintain distributed assets that would otherwise require significant capital and manpower to manage. In addition, these technologies allow your technicians to control those devices remotely without having to travel. You can also gather tons of insights that can improve the operational performance of these devices and help them recover for common error conditions. However, due to the Cyber Security issues and data centers' traditional design, adopting these edge technologies has been challenging.
In today's episode, our guest, Jason Andersen, shares his insights into edge technologies and how manufacturers and field service companies can take advantage of them. He also discusses how edge networks and their communication requirements differ from traditional and cloud technologies. Finally, he discusses how the conventional airgap between OT and IT has been the barrier for edge adoption and what options companies have for them to take advantage of these technologies fully.
