Advantech’s UNO series of IoT edge gateways has qualified for Amazon’s Greengrass open source edge runtime and cloud service.

This allows Advantech’s UNO series gateways (UNO-137, UNO-148, UNO-2271G V2, UNO-2372G, UNO-410, and UNO-430) to be compatible with most mainstream cloud services and pre-built software components in the Internet of Things (IoT).

Integration with the IoT Greengrass service form Amazon Web Services (AWS) allows the UNO gateways to extend AWS functionality and cloud intelligence to the edge.

For example, AWS Lambda functions and prebuilt software modules can be used to build edge applications for stream analytics, machine learning, image recognition, and other high-value AI applications that are deployed from the cloud to the edge for local execution. Similarly, Amazon’s SageMaker Neo DLR and TensorFlow Lite frameworks can be used for machine learning inference at the edge on using cloud-trained models. This enables local devices to act on locally generated data, while storing, analyzing, visualizing, and decision-making tasks are conducted through the cloud, streamlining data processing operations and facilitating the convergence of OT and IT.

The UNO gateways are rugged, fanless systems with Intel Atom processors designed for easy deployment and maintenance in industrial, outdoor/roadside, in-cabinet, and hazardous/flammable installation environments.

They support edge container technology for third-party container-native applications so that  cloud services can be deployed as decentralized computing resources. The AWS Partner Network (APN) helps original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and their customers simplify, accelerate and optimize the IoT device development.

The edge gateways are also equipped with multiple I/O for integrating secondary expansion stacks and Wi-Fi, LTE, and 5G connectivity modules that extend the system functions.

The gateways are also installed with Advantech’s WISE-DeviceOn IoT management software, which supports data collection and visualization, failure prediction/prevention, logic control, and remote management tasks. Accordingly, with AWS IoT Greengrass compatibility, UNO gateways provide highly applicable edge platforms that facilitate cost-effective local development of edge-to-cloud IoT solutions.

Advantech’s UNO-137, UNO-148, UNO-2271G V2, UNO-2372G, UNO-410, and UNO-430 IoT edge gateways with AWS IoT Greengrass are available now.
