Industrial IoT Solution Architecture and Product Innovation


To move towards the next stage of the Internet of Things, Advantech builds an ecosystem with a "co-creation model", develops Solution Ready Package (SRP), and implements the development of the IoT. Among them, as the basis of SRP, Advantech Industrial IoT Group provides a complete product line of “one-stop shopping” from sensing devices, communication devices, computing platforms, storage and servers to application software and cloud platforms. Through the simultaneous development of big data acquisition and control, communication timeliness and security, modular and industry-specific industrial computer platforms, high-performance GPU artificial intelligence architecture and other technologies, Advantech will achieve continuous product innovation and master the visible future of the IoT.
