EdgeBox is an application and device management solution for your connected products or factory

Digital transformation in the manufacturing world usually requires adoption of an Internet of Things (IoT) based solutions, but estimating the budget, business benefits and return on investment (RoI) is still a difficult task. Various research papers proves that IoT proof of concept (PoC) and adoption goes as twice as much the planned time and/or budget (Gartner, Cisco Research) and some of the reasons are related to the lack of expertise and skills. Moreover, our own experience in developing and integrating IoT solutions shows, that companies does not clearly understand that making a complete and production ready product out of PoC is a difficult and long process, especially when we are talking about Industrial IoT  (IIoT) solutions.

To help our clients in the adoption process, we started developing EdgeBox – a solution for device, gateway and application management for the manufacturing.  It is a result of many years work on various projects and combines the common features required by every IoT based projects.
