Opto 22 receives the 2022 Frost & Sullivan Enabling Technology Leadership Award

We're honored to share the exciting news that the edge technology included in groov EPIC controllers and groov RIO edge I/O modules has earned Opto 22 a special recognition! Based on its recent analysis of the industrial internet of things (IIoT) industry, Frost & Sullivan announced Opto 22 as the 2022 Global Enabling Technology Leader.

For over 60 years, Frost & Sullivan has been world-renowned for its detailed market analysis to help investors, corporations, and governments navigate economic changes and identify new technologies, trends, and growth opportunities.

Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents the Enabling Technology award to a company that develops pioneering technology and has demonstrated a high market acceptance for these new edge solutions. Thanks to the support of technology partners like Cirrus Link Solutions, Inductive Automation, CODESYS, and HiveMQ, the groov EPIC and RIO product lines have achieved this industry status.


“The groov technology can solve one of the most challenging aspects of IIoT: How to collect data from the edge of the network and make it available to the software that consumes it and people that use it, overcoming the intrinsic complexity, security, integrity, and cost issues,” said Samantha Fisher, Best Practices Research Analyst at Frost & Sullivan. “Frost & Sullivan believes the company is well-positioned to drive the IIoT edge control solutions space into its next growth phase, capturing market share and sustaining its leadership in the coming years.”

Congratulations to our team of engineers here at Opto 22 for continuing to push boundaries and implement the product features and functions our customers are asking for, and for allowing us to be trailblazers in the field of industrial automation.

And many thanks to you, our customers, distributors, and OptoPartners, for your continued support of Opto 22 products.

Keep calm and groov on!
