An open platform for Industrial IoT Edge Computing that uses the latest stable release of EdgeX Foundry to create a commercial quality solution from the base open source technology. The platform-independent, highly-scalable and industrial-grade edge software platform is supported by a rich ecosystem of components that can deliver interoperability between things, applications and services, across a wide range of use cases.
Based on a loosely-coupled microservices architecture, the Edge Xpert platform allows for independent microservices to be distributed across discrete hardware devices, written in different languages (e.g. Java, Go Lang, C/C++) communicating with each other via HTTP-REST (and other protocols such as MQTT and ZeroMQ).
Edge Xpert also supports the integration of multi-protocol OT device and sensor (e.g. Modbus, BACnet, OPC UA devices) and IT/Cloud (e.g Microsoft Azure IoT Hub and AWS IoT Platform) endpoints via normalized Device and Export Service APIs.
