An Industrial Internet Consortium White Paper

SUMMARY

This paper offers guidance on edge computing, architectures and the building blocks necessary to implement edge computing in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIot) systems.

The report identifies where the edge is, its main features, key drivers for edge computing implementation and the reasons why compute capabilities should be implemented at the edge in the Industrial Internet of Things systems.

It also identifies and evaluates the standards, practices, and features best equipped for addressing edge computing. Besides, it detects deployment models and crosscutting tasks that address patterns for edge computing deployment.

The research explains that edge computing has been implemented in many types of IIoT deployments. But the necessity to modernize edge architectures became obvious when cloud computing emerged. The quick decrease in processor and memory prices enables decision-logic closer to the edge - where data is created. 

The sector now knows that a standard approach is not appropriate for IIoT, the report states. Meanwhile, designers of the IIoT system are aware of where the edge limit is, and the type of devices in the system that can be classified as edge devices. In that respect, system designers face the challenge to implement an architecture that is managed and secure.
