SolidRun in Israel has developed a compact IoT edge server with large scale wireless mesh technology from Wirepas in Sweden.

The SolidSense N8 Compact IoT edge gateway is a fanless design based around the NXP i.MX8m Nano processors.

This runs the Wirepas Linux Gateway software that enables reliable, massive-scale communications from Wirepas Massive-enabled devices backhauled over cellular, Wi-Fi or Ethernet connections. Additionally, Wirepas provides built-in support for communication with Wirepas cloud assets, such as network diagnostics and positioning engines.

The flexible radio supports up to two Wirepas radio interfaces, which benefit from the Wirepas Massive automatic multi-gateway and load balancing support with higher data throughput.

“Wirepas customers use Wirepas Massive in industrial-grade applications like sensor monitoring, preventative maintenance, lighting control and asset tracking. Devices running on Wirepas mesh ensure coverage everywhere in a building, even in the largest warehouses and hospitals. One network can have several gateways without having to configure or commission a device on a particular gateway. This means that the requirements for gateway reliability and performance are high. SolidRun’s N8 IoT Compact gateways perfectly match the expectations of our customers,” said Jani Vehkalahti, SVP Global Sales at Wirepas.”

“Modern enterprises rely on several network-connect devices and sensors for their daily operations. However, the amount of data generated by these networks can create a major bandwidth bottleneck if processing and analytics is managed at the cloud. Our SolidSense N8 edge gateway is designed to monitor and analyze tons of sensors at the edge, reducing the volume of data sent over the internet and making networks far more efficient,” said Dr. Atai Ziv, CEO at SolidRun.

The gateway is aimed at automation, asset tracking, security, smart buildings and other Industry4.0 applications.

The SolidSense N8 IoT Compact Edge Gateways can be ordered with a variety of connectivity options.

Out of the box, developers are provided access to a full suite of open-source software solutions that can run on the gateways and in the cloud for device and connectivity management. SolidSense cloud is available as a Platform as a Service (PaaS) or can be deployed on customer IT infrastructures.

All the SolidSense Edge Gateways are OEM ready with CAN and USB interfaces, but SolidRun will work with customers to configure custom systems to any industry’s or enterprise’s specific IoT needs.
