Handling the vast amounts of data generated by edge devices overwhelms businesses when it comes to implementing Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) applications. Many businesses are now introducing an edge-computing strategy: processing data locally in an IoT gateway, sending only critical data to the central system, or even making decisions locally. This strategy not only reduces data transmission fees, but also enables faster response times for critical industrial processes.
Moxa’s newly launched UC-8100-ME-T series is a 4G LTE-enabled edge- computing solution designed for IIoT applications. The UC-8100-ME-T is built around an ARM® Cortex™-A8 1 GHz processor and comes with two RS-232/422/485 serial ports and dual 10/100 Mbps Ethernet LAN ports, as well as a Mini PCIe socket to support 3G/4G LTE cellular modules. The patented Secure Boot technology safeguards the Linux kernel.
