Edge Connectivity

Connecting your edge devices to the cloud is challenging. Firmwave® Edge hardware and firmware connectivity modules contain built-in open standards communications protocols and embedded firmware modules and allow customers to get their sensors connected to gateways and directly to the cloud for further data analysis. Our suite of hardware and firmware modules includes support for:

As well as being secure and reliable, IoT wireless sensor network solutions also need to be easy to commission, install, manage and maintain. Firmwave® provides a platform of software tools and firmware that simplifies the integration of multiple wireless sensor network technologies in a single deployment through a single dashboard.

Edge Compute

Firmwave® Edge signal processing libraries reliably acquires, aggregates, filters, and delivers real-time meaningful events avoiding frequently switching on radio links thus saving battery power.
