Atlas Edge

Atlas Edge connects your machines to the cloud

With Atlas Edge, you can realise a low-latency, ultra responsive connection between your equipment and the cloud. Capitalising on advances in communications such as 5G, Atlas can enable the next step into the industrial internet of things (IIoT) that your business needs to take. Alongside data lakes and cloud infrastructure, edge computing solutions and data crunching ability allow Atlas to bring the fourth industrial revolution (4IR) to you.

Making 4IR dreams a reality

To adopt the revolutionary approaches that 4IR technologies open the door to, low-latency and lightning fast data processing is a necessity. With Atlas Edge, the distance between your machines and the cloud is cut down to insignificance. Connectivity between sensors and data stores is near instantaneous and your company can put the data it harvests to use in an instant.

Expand your computing capabilities

Removing latency from the equation

With Atlas Edge, crafting low-latency loops with millions of connections is a possibility. Passing data to the cloud is optimised. Data can be collected, delivered, analysed and turned into insight in the blink of an eye. With proper implementation, edge computing and cloud architectures operate as efficiently as having server farms on-site, at every site, wherever they are around the globe. With Atlas Edge, you expand your computing capabilities by orders of magnitude without sinking any resources into costly infrastructure that’s impossible to future proof.

FAQ

Is my data transmission reliable with Atlas?

Data passed between Atlas Cloud services and Atlas Edge is safe, secure and reliable. We keep your data safe using cutting edge technology and layered security methods. We also buffer the data at the edge to ensure any network interruption will mean no loss of data.

Can Atlas Edge feedback results to my machine or devices?

Yes! Atlas Edge enables instant feedback from all your devices, facilitating instant data collection, analysis and implementation. This can be as simple as a basic rule or as complex as using AI generated modules to bring the power of big data to the edge.

Can I set up alerts?

Atlas Edge in combination with Atlas Boost can set up a wide range of alerts so you know what’s happening with your devices at all times.

Can I instruct my machine or device?

Using Altas Edge in combination with Atlas Play the user can control and manage machine instructions. These can be as simple as a pointer to a program or the individual parameters, or as complex as delivering a complete program or AI algorithm.

Are my devices compatible with Atlas Edge?

We use cutting edge APIs to link to almost any piece of equipment your business might use. If you find your device isn’t automatically compatible with Atlas Edge, our engineers will make it so.

Does it make a difference whether I’m connecting to a new build site or an existing one?

Whether you’re looking to use Atlas Edge with an existing site or a new facility, Atlas Edge can be integrated with your equipment. The questions you have to ask yourself is what is the business value of the data? Who is the user of the data and is the data required to flow both ways, to instruct the equipment or device, or to collect data? With a green field site it is easy to define the interfacing standards while purchasing the equipment.

Should I standardise on OPC UA?

OPC UA is probably the most popular choice for manufacturing sites where PLC’s and SCADA is commonly used. However, there are 100s of industries and types of equipment and devices where OPC UA is not commonly used. For example, quality test machines, Teleco or IoT. Therefore any manufacturing architecture should include OPC UA, but whether it should be exclusive is debatable. With Atlas Edge, we architect a solution that allows for several types of standard protocols including IoT and API interfaces.
