FreeWave announces programmable ZumIQ App server network appliance to offer ruggedized edge intelligence for IIoT

FreeWave Technologies announced availability of the ZumIQ App Server, programmable hardware injecting ruggedized edge intelligence into IIoT networks and sensor ecosystems. This programmable network appliance provides a secure home for applications relying on sensor or device data to deliver industrial process intelligence.

Utilizing the same ZumIQ Application Environment as FreeWave’s ZumLink 900 Mhz Industrial Radios, the product works with either custom or third-party applications and can execute multiple applications simultaneously.

The features of the ZumIQ App Server include versatile app development and deployment utilizing any Linux-compatible language; app deployment to wired or wireless networks in combination with FreeWave ZumLink 900 MHz Industrial Radios or other wired or wireless devices; and edge intelligence in harsh outdoor conditions with a rugged C1D2 designed to withstand extreme weather conditions and can last for years in the field.

Its low power consumption is ideal for remote deployments requiring batteries, fuel cells, solar, wind turbines or DC non-grid power sources; and its enclosed and board-level versions provide enclosure and deployment flexibility.

“Industrial users want to harness the power of edge intelligence by deploying applications in their wired and wireless networks,” said Scott Allen, chief marketing officer of FreeWave Technologies. “Our customers tell us they are developing software applications on developer platforms and require a rugged C1D2 device, like the ZumIQ App Server, for application deployment.”
