ADLINK joins with Google Cloud to enable decision-making with edge computing and real-time connectivity

ADLINK Technology has partnered with Google Cloud to integrate ADLINK’s hardware and software solutions with Google Cloud IoT offerings, providing customers with an easy path to added business value by harnessing and analyzing critical operational data.

ADLINK’s contribution of integrated hardware and software also includes ADLINK Edge services to channel operational data and enable intelligent decision-making by streaming to Google Cloud for deeper insight. With no programming necessary, ADLINK Edge connects previously unconnected operational equipment and sensors. By tapping into native communication protocols, data can be captured and streamed at the edge and securely between devices, databases and to GCP, enabling analysis and easy visualization to inform business decisions and optimize operations.

Google Cloud Platform Edge IoT offerings are now embedded within select ADLINK Edge IoT hardware and integrated with ADLINK’s Edge IoT software out-of-the-box so that users deliver high performance, low power ML inference capabilities of Tensorflow at the edge.

Google Cloud IoT Ready solutions from ADLINK provide the integrated cloud-to-edge hardware and software infrastructure to facilitate the deployment of AI-based solutions.

Powered by ADLINK Edge, ADLINK’s edge IoT software, users can customize any Google Cloud IoT Ready solution with a set of applications for universal connectivity to any sensor protocol or control system, as well as leverage Edge IoT apps for data cleansing, visualization, security, and device management without writing any code, and stream raw data real-time to Google Cloud Platform to train in the cloud and run at the edge.

ADLINK provides robust boards, platforms and user interfaces; real-time data connectivity solutions; and application enablement for industrial computing. Together, these also enable end-to-end IoT solutions in support of operational excellence or new revenue streams. ADLINK serves customers in many vertical markets with a well developed ecosystem of technology partners.

Google Cloud is a suite of cloud computing services that runs on the same infrastructure that Google uses internally for its end-user products. Customers can use insight from GCP analytics tools including advanced analytics, AI and machine learning to make informed decisions to optimize operations, enable predictive maintenance, minimize downtime, improve quality and enable the development of new business models and revenue streams.

“Companies are seeking hardware solutions that are pre-integrated with Google Cloud IoT,” explained Mario Finocchiaro, head of GTM, Google Cloud IoT. “Partnering with ADLINK gives our customers and partners options for IoT devices and data sources ready to use out of the box.”

“Because our area of expertise is at the edge, it’s important for us to work with cloud computing experts, such as Google Cloud, to provide the best end-to-end IoT solutions in the industry,” said Lawrence Ross, GM of ADLINK Software and Solutions. “We’re also excited to bring GCP’s scale and best-in-class security to our Digital Experiment offering, which is essentially a starting point for a customer’s IoT journey.”
