The enterprise-ready IoT Edge Framework Everyware Software Framework (ESF) is a high-level, multi-platform, and flexible application development environment for Edge Computers and IoT Gateways. ESF connects and interfaces with field devices thanks to its ready-to-use field protocol libraries. Field data can be processed at the edge through rich Java APIs or a web-based visual programming environment.
The resulting data can be published and delivered to leading IoT Cloud Services such as Everyware Cloud (Eurotech IoT Integration Platform), Eclipse Kapua, AWS IoT and Azure IoT.
Everyware Software Framework bridges the physical world to the digital world. It encapsulates field devices and data sources into a common model. For each field device, a digital twin is created. The twin can be incorporated into visually composed data flows running on the edge or it can be remotely managed from the cloud. Remote management and monitoring of field devices is therefore made easier: ESF becomes the ideal solution for a wide range of IoT applications.
ESF is part of Everyware IoT, Eurotech's edge-to-cloud IoT architecture.
What you get with Everyware Software Framework:
- Acquire from the Field and publish to the Cloud With ready-to-use libraries for field protocols (Modbus, OPC-UA, S7) and support for publishing via MQTT to leading IoT cloud platforms, publish PLC data to remote business applications in minutes through a simple visual programming tool. The ESF digital twin of the PLC will also enable cloud interactions with the field for command and control and remote actuations.
- Develop IoT Edge Applications Visually compose data-flow graphs for data acquisition, routing, filtering, aggregation and analytics: ESF Wires provides a web-based interface for easy IoT application configuration, composition, and management. Full Java APIs are also available for developing custom data flow components or full edge applications.
- Manage Edge Computers and IoT Gateways Control and configure edge nodes including their applications, their configuration and their network interfaces such as Ethernet, Wi-Fi and cellular modems. Enables remote management and remote updates of the edge nodes. Security management includes provisioning, credentials, certificates, and signed application bundles and signed remote management communication.
- Large Eco-System Everyware Software Framework is a commercial, enterprise-ready edition of Eclipse Kura, the open source Java/OSGi Edge Computing Platform for IoT Gateways. Supported by an active and vibrant community, Eclipse Kura features a marketplace of modules and plugins available at the Eclipse Marketplace for IoT. Application and libraries can be installed from the Eclipse IoT Marketplace into an ESF runtime with a simple drag-and-drop.
Everyware Software Framework (ESF) is an enterprise-ready IoT Edge Framework distributed and supported by Eurotech. Based on Eclipse Kura, the open source Java/OSGi middleware for IoT gateways, ESF adds provisioning, advanced security, remote access, diagnostics monitoring.
It supports ready-to-use field protocols (including Modbus, OPC-UA, S7), MQTT connectivity, and a web-based visual data flow programming to acquire data from the field, process it at the edge, and publish it to IoT Cloud Platforms. ESF features full remote device management through its integration with Everyware Cloud, Eurotech’s IoT Integration Platform.
