Business value

Companies can execute mission-critical manufacturing processes without interruption and at scale, including in situations where Internet connections are occasionally unstable.

Feature details

Improve the resilience of your manufacturing processes using edge scale units running on physical appliances located on your own shop floor. Edge scale units operate independently from the hub and allow production facilities to remain operational even during a connectivity failure. Maintenance can be scheduled independently of cloud instances.

Workers using computers and hand-held devices connected to the edge scale unit will have the same capabilities as when working against a cloud scale unit.
