  SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend  

LoopEdge enables manufacturing customers' Industry 4.0 teams to deploy and operate a unified edge-to-cloud system

SANTA CLARA, California, Sept. 16, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- áBased on its recent analysis of the North American market for edge-to-cloud Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) enablement platforms for manufacturing, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Litmus Automation, Inc. with the 2019 North American New Product Innovation Award. Litmus Automation offers LoopEdge, an edge computing platform; and Loop, a cloud-level management layer for LoopEdge, as a unified edge-to-cloud IIoT platform. The solution gives customers a foundation for their Industry 4.0 initiatives. The company renders unmatched product value because LoopEdge connects both legacy and modern devices from different vendors and analyzes data right at the edge, whereas Loop manages and integrates the lifecycle of all edge devices remotely.

"From industrial data collection and edge analytics to central IoT management, Litmus Automation's innovative and unified IIoT edge-to-cloud platform offers customers the foundation for any Industry 4.0 initiative," ásaid Sankara Narayanan áSenior áIndustry Analyst. "Manufacturing companies find Litmus Automation's LoopEdge and Loop platforms valuable because they can seamlessly connect all of their disparate industrial devices, systems, and legacy equipment machines, as well as obtain a 360-degree view of all their operations. Furthermore, they do not need to rely on intermediaries for deployment."

LoopEdge is installed out-of-the-box on any IoT gateway or industrial PC. It is deployed as an operating system (OS) or in a virtual machine (VM), and presents seamless and secure connectivity to legacy industrial devices and systems, such as programmable logic controllers (PLCs), distributed control systems (DCSs), controllers, robotic systems and computer numeric control (CNC) machines. LoopEdge is unique in the industry because it can speak to almost all the different industrial devices and systems. Although some legacy products can speak to certain industrial systems too, they are not designed for IIoT or Edge computing, and they are difficult to manage across different factories without proper security measures taken into consideration.

As manufacturing companies begin scaling across different factories and remote sites, Loop connects the various LoopEdge gateways, centralizes the data, and then manages the entire lifecycle of edge devices. Device management functions include mass provisioning devices, sending firmware updates over-the-air, and deploying applications or logic to the edge. Loop can either be hosted on Litmus Automation's own Azure platform, or customers can host it on their own AWS, Azure, or Google platforms as well as in their own private data centers.

"While LoopEdge and Loop are Litmus Automation's core products, they also offer an add-on application called LoopInsights, which allows customers to create their own dashboards and visualizations across different factories. LoopInsights provides quick and easy visualization at the cloud or data center level," noted Narayanan. "Litmus Automation works along with system integrators, distributors, and hardware and cloud partners to build an extensive ecosystem comprised of some of the most prominent IIoT companies. Its visionary innovations and strategic partnerships have positioned it for continued growth in the future."

Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has developed an innovative product by leveraging leading-edge technologies. The award recognizes the value-added features/benefits of the product and the increased return on investment (ROI) it gives customers, which, in turn, raises customer acquisition and overall market penetration potential.

Frost & Sullivan Best Practices awards recognize companies in a variety of regional and global markets for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service, and strategic product development. Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis, and extensive secondary research to identify best practices in the industry.
