ADLINK and Google Cloud partner at the edge
ADLINK Technology, a global provider of edge computing solutions, has partnered with Google Cloud to integrate ADLINK’s hardware and software solutions with Google Cloud IoT offerings, providing customers with a path to added business value by analysing critical operational data.
“Companies are seeking hardware solutions that are pre-integrated with Google Cloud IoT,” says Google Cloud IoT GTM head Mario Finocchiaro.
“Partnering with ADLINK gives our customers and partners options for IoT devices and data sources ready to use out of the box.”
Google Cloud is a suite of cloud computing services that runs on the same infrastructure that Google uses internally for its end-user products.
Customers can use insight from GCP analytics tools including advanced analytics, AI and machine learning to make informed decisions to optimise operations, enable predictive maintenance, minimise downtime, improve quality and enable the development of new business models and revenue streams.
ADLINK’s contribution of integrated hardware and software also includes ADLINK Edge services to channel operational data and enable intelligent decision-making by streaming to Google Cloud for deeper insight.
With no programming necessary, ADLINK Edge connects previously unconnected operational equipment and sensors.
By tapping into native communication protocols, data can be captured and streamed at the edge and securely between devices, databases and to GCP, enabling analysis and easy visualisation to inform business decisions and optimise operations.
“Because our area of expertise is at the edge, it’s important for us to work with cloud computing experts, such as Google Cloud, to provide the best end-to-end IoT solutions in the industry,” says ADLINK software and solutions general manager Lawrence Ross.
“We’re also excited to bring GCP’s scale and best-in-class security to our Digital Experiment offering, which is essentially a starting point for a customer’s IoT journey.”
