Opto 22's Director of Technical Marketing, Dan White, explains the features and importance of modern edge devices in this new Control Engineering article.

The industrial automation industry is now being driven by the idea of digital transformation and the industrial internet of things (IIoT). Understanding the concepts of edge and cloud technology and how they relate is becoming a necessity.

Opto 22's Dan White does an excellent job of explaining these terms and what it means for you and your future designs and applications. He shares his insights on edge devices, data management and cybersecurity in this newly published article from Control Engineering, "Edge to cloud: Understanding new industrial architectures."


The article also discusses how to:

  • Evaluate technologies and requirements for industrial edge and cloud capabilities, including the continuous coordination of industrial cybersecurity.
  • Contrast costs of industrial cloud capabilities versus on-premises provisioning and consider clarity of industrial cloud and edge data.
  • Examine industrial edge device resilience amid cloud reliability concerns with refined integration for edge and cloud technologies.
