HMS Industrial Networks has joined PTC's IoT ThingWorx Ready partner program and released an extension to the Netbiter Remote Management solution, connecting customer applications to the ThingWorx IoT platform.
CHICAGO, IL -- SEPTEMBER 12, 2016
Available at the ThingWorx marketplace, the extension enables users to access data which is either stored in the Netbiter Argos cloud, or alternatively comes directly from field applications. In both cases, the data is forwarded from the field by industrial Netbiter gateways.
While the solution supports integration of existing Netbiter applications into the ThingWorx platform, it is primarily targeting device and machine OEMs looking for a way to get data from the field to perform analytics for purposes such as predictive maintenance. For these ThingWorx users, the Netbiter gateways act as edge gateways for connectivity to their applications in the field.
ThingWorx, the foundation of PTC's IIoT portfolio, allows customers to leverage ThingWatcher, ThingPredictor and ThingOptimizer to add deep analytics to their platform without a large R&D budget. The solution allows integration with cutting edge technology companies like glassbeam and splunk. Most importantly IoT solution providers like Bosch and Devicify can easily create mashups with Netbiter to meet their customer’s needs.
“Thanks to the new ThingWorx extension for Netbiter, users will get the best of both worlds, since the solution combines HMS’s experience in industrial communication and remote management with the leading ThingWorx IoT software platform. The solution ensures continuous and secure access to field data from the ThingWorx platform”, says Henrik Arleving, Product Line Manager at HMS.
The ThingWorx extension for Netbiter Argos can be found at the ThingWorx marketplace at the following location: ThingWorx marketplace
HMS will be demonstrating the Netbiter ThingWorx extension at Smart Industry 2016, Table 103, September 26-27 in Chicago IL. Together with HMS IoT Solution Partner Devicify, users will discover a complete IoT Solution from data collection to IoT Relationship Management.
As a part of the ThingWorx eco-system HMS Industrial Networks edge gateways can be used in conjunction with the Bosch IoT Suite. Learn more about edge gateway integration by attending Bosch Connected World in Chicago September 27 and 28.
