Software Supports Fast-Scaling IIoT Deployments

FogHorn, a developer of edge intelligence software for industrial and commercial Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, offers its Lightning 2.0 software. "The additions to the Lightning portfolio establish new industry benchmarks for edge-based machine learning (EdgeML), massively scalable edge deployment support, zero-touch sensor configuration, out-of-the-box multi-cloud integration and next generation OT (Operational Technology) tools," said a company spokesperson.

"FogHorn's Lightning product portfolio brings a groundbreaking dimension to industrial IoT (IIoT) by embedding edge intelligence locally, as close to the source of streaming sensor data as possible," said the spokesperson.

With 2.0, capabilities have been augmented to support Predictive Model Mark Up Language (PMML), enabling any compliant machine learning model to be run at the edge.

The Lightning platform offers "edgification" of machine learning models, off-loading data pre- and post-processing from the main ML model to the VEL CEP engine for optimal performance in the smallest compute footprint.

FogHorn enables the emerging trend of Sensor Fusion with its ability to simultaneously process and infer on multiple data streams, of different types. This, in addition to executing Deep Learning models on constrained edge compute devices, has resulted in the rise of new and sophisticated use cases.

The release adds critical capabilities to improve sensor deployment automation and scalability, including auto sensor-discovery, sensor fusion, edge device auto-registration and single click deployment to thousands of devices at once. Data publishing integration with leading cloud providers, along with a deep integration with Google Cloud IoT Core, further streamline production deployment roll outs, speeding time to value with cloud pre-integration.

Along with the enhanced automation capabilities, the Lightning platform has an innovative new user interface (UI), designed specifically for OT team members. Beyond an enhanced look and feel, the new UI shortens the learning curve for new users, and offers an intuitive, simple way to execute a range of common operational activities. "Further, the 2.0 release introduces VEL Studio (beta), a streamlined approach to creating and debugging flow-reactive analytic expressions, delivering significant programming efficiency for the edge, while dramatically reducing the barrier to entry," said the spokesperson.

"It is very exciting to see a number of our customers aggressively rolling out the Lightning platform and experiencing significant improvements in performance, automation, yield, quality and cost savings," said Sastry Malladi, CTO at FogHorn. "The 2.0 release was designed to help our customers scale quickly and accelerate time-to-value in the most innovative, automated and user-friendly way."
