Linux Gizmos: Open Source Group Focuses on Industrial IoT Gateway Middleware

By EdgeX Foundry, In the News

The Linux Foundation has launched an open source, cross-platform “EdgeX Foundry” project based on Dell’s FUSE for standardizing middleware on IoT gateways.

The new EdgeX Foundry organization will develop modular, cross-platform middleware for industrial IoT edge gateways. Based on a Dell FUSE project, the open source group aims to simplify and standardize industrial IoT edge computing “while still allowing the ecosystem to add significant value,” says the Linux Foundation.

IT Business Edge: Linux Foundation Advances IoT Interoperability

By EdgeX Foundry, In the News

Looking to foster greater interoperability between endpoints and gateways across Internet of Things (IoT) environments, The Linux Foundation today launched an open source EdgeX Foundry project based on software developed by Dell Technologies.

The announcement was made at the Hannover Messe 2017 conference, and Philip DesAutels, senior director of IoT for The Linux Foundation, says the goal is to reduce the anxiety organizations face when deciding what type of IoT hardware to implement.

IoT Innovator: New EdgeX Foundry Fuses IoT Marketplace to Accelerate Enterprise IoT Deployments

By EdgeX Foundry, In the News

The Linux Foundation launched Monday an open source project EdgeX Foundry, to build a common open framework for Internet of Things (IoT) edge computing and an ecosystem of interoperable components that unifies the marketplace and accelerates enterprise and Industrial IoT. The initiative is aligned around a common goal: the simplification and standardization of Industrial IoT edge computing, while still allowing the ecosystem to add significant value.

EdgeX Foundry is unifying the marketplace around a common open framework and building an ecosystem of companies offering interoperable plug-and-play components.

FierceWireless: Linux Foundation’s EdgeX Foundry injects unity into IoT marketplace

By EdgeX Foundry, In the News

Ever wonder about all the fragmentation that exists in the Internet of Things (IoT), where there are myriad communication protocols? A new project in the Linux Foundation doesn’t solve that problem—if there is one to be solved, that’s debatable—but it aims to make it easier to work with all those layers.

Here’s the gist: A lot of enterprises know they need to get into the IoT game, but they’re reluctant to do so because it means they have to make a decision on which solution to choose and making the wrong choice could take a long time to undo.

The EdgeX Foundry is essentially saying they don’t need to procrastinate anymore. It’s designed to provide an open source edge software platform for interoperability between connected devices, applications, sensors and services across a range of use cases.

BetaNews: The Linux Foundation launches IoT-focused open source EdgeX Foundry, Ubuntu-maker Canonical joins

By EdgeX Foundry, In the News

The Internet of Things is gaining in popularity just as many pundits have predicted for years. Having a connected home is easy and cost effective, thanks to devices like Amazon Echo, WeMo lights, and Nest thermostats. It really is an exciting time to be a tech-enthusiast consumer.

Unfortunately, while IoT is exciting, it can also be confusing and scary. Many devices do not work together due to fragmentation, and even worse, there can be security exploits that put the consumer’s home network at risk. In other words, an internet connected refrigerator or webcam could be abused by hackers. Today, The Linux Foundation launches the open source EdgeX Foundry — an attempt to unify and simplify the Internet of Things.

Moor Insights & Strategy Research Paper: Cleaning Up The Industrial IOT (IIOT) Edge

By EdgeX Foundry, In the News

One of the most critical challenges to navigate when designing, developing, and deploying Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) solutions is the mish-mash of standards that must be comprehended to connect all the things. The IIoT environment never comprehended ubiquitous connectivity and is comprised of countless tools, development and operating environments, and connectivity standards. Combine these factors with an infinite number of potential industrial use cases across a myriad of vertical markets, and developing solutions that can quickly provide return on investment becomes a nightmare. How then do we get consistency or standardization to allow developers to deploy working IoT solutions quickly and easily while still allowing platform, hardware, and service providers to differentiate and monetize their value-add?
