For IoT devices to become cost effective enough for deployment into low cost assets, the importance of edge processing becomes an ever larger topic of discussion – in fact edge processing and the cost of data acquisition should be at the top of the agenda when planning a digital migration strategy.
There are a number of respected resources that have predicted the explosion of edge processing. A couple of them are quoted below
Gartner “91% of today’s data is created and processed in centralised data centres. By 2022 about 75% of all data will need analysis and action at the edge.”
IDC Data Age 2025 report The Digitization of the World: From Edge to Core “By 2025, 175 zettabytes (or 175 trillion gigabytes) of data will be generated around the globe. Edge devices will create more than 90 zettabytes of that data.”
Our approach at Digital Twin is to design and manufacture micro edge devices sized to your data acquisition need. We are experts in producing hardware that is carefully matched to transduce your real world requirements into the digital domain. Our edge devices are equipped with algorithms to interpret and package the data based on use-case rules. This unique capability dramatically reduces the payload size which coupled with our Thingstream USSD/MQTT layer result in dramatic cost savings.
