Edge Device-to-Cloud, the Future of IoT

Posted by Kari Grosser on Dec 6, 2018 9:45:00 AM

Advantech's device-to-cloud solution realizes the possibility for edge devices to pass equipment and environmental data to cloud platforms directly. They also enable the utilization of cloud platform tools to perform statistical analysis and visualization of data, so that users can understand the status of the equipment and environment at a glance. In addition to solving typical problems associated with building IoT applications, which tend to be widely distributed and composed of many devices, they also reduce inspection costs, improve immediacy, and facilitate the remote management of decentralized sites.

Advantech Helps Speed Up Delivery and Logistics for E-commerce

Posted by Kari Grosser on Sep 17, 2018 10:30:00 AM

With the ubiquity of IoT and development of related platforms, e-commerce has become even more prominent. To drive consumer purchase intentions, e-commerce companies must devise creative marketing strategies.

Besides the wide variety of affordable goods the e-commerce companies offer, it is the quality of their logistics services that is becoming of higher relevance to consumer satisfaction. With immediacy and availability being virtually implicit influences in consumer decisions to purchase their favorite products online (as opposed to making purchases in traditional brick-and-mortar stores), how quickly and conveniently goods can be delivered are thus important considerations made by customers choosing between online shopping platforms. To improve their competitiveness, e-commerce businesses must therefore ensure that their logistics efficiency is high, because in light of this logic, it has a direct and positive influence on consumer purchase behaviors.

Intelligent Factory Connectivity

Posted by Kari Grosser on Jul 18, 2018 10:30:00 AM

As manufacturing companies expand and leverage their scale and manufacturing capacity, one of the major challenges they face is to improve their operational efficiency. However, most plants have numerous complex systems that are critical for managing scheduling, production, inventory and quality data - especially if the company owns several factories in different cities, which complicates management. What is needed is an easy and effective approach to supervising each factory and sharing information across multiple sites.

Advantech Introduces the Smallest Ethernet Switch Ever

Posted by Kari Grosser on Jul 10, 2018 9:30:00 AM

Advantech’s IIoT Group is pleased to announce the UL certified EKI-2525LI, a 8cm tall Ethernet switch aimed at applications where space is a critical criteria for users.

Compact devices such as PLCs typically have a height of only 10cm. Conventional Ethernet switches are usually taller than this, resulting in a waste of space. The EKI-2525LI overcomes this and can easily fit into a rack-mount cabinet to maximize space utilization, thus providing an easy and immediate upgrade for Industrial IoT applications.

The EKI-2525LI can also be fitted into any already-wired electronic box or shelve where extra connectivity and communication service are required but space is limited, thus aiding businesses with key infrastructure upgrades.

Moreover, the EKI-2525LI can serve as an embedded device in any working equipment, such as kiosk, AGV, and CNC machines, thus ensuring smooth data transmission between embedded devices and thereby promoting seamless information communication.

The EKI-2525LI supports a wide operating temperature of -40° ~ 75°C, 12 ~ 48 VDC power terminal input plus one DC power jack and P-Fail relay, supports 10/1000 Mbps auto-negotiation, and provides five fast Ethernet ports with auto MDI/MDI-X.
