What is easyedge.io?
Why Industrial IoT needs easyedge.io?
Because Industrial IoT needs gateways and software to assure field equipment connectivity.
Changes in industrial environments are very complex due to the risk of something going wrong and causing severe or even irreparable damage. That is why, even imagining that one day a consensus will arise for connecting each industrial equipment directly to the cloud, without going through an IoT gateway, taking into account the very slow cycle for industrial equipment renewal, we do not expect it to happen for most of the huge installed base before two or three decades. Operating Technology (OT) companies are well aware of this reality, while most Information Technology (IT) companies tend to overlook it.
easyedge.io is software for IoT Gateways to streamline connectivity between field equipment and applications.
easyedge.io was designed from the ground up with the brownfield in mind and aiming to integrate into any platform or application, whether in the cloud or on-premise. It offers the most comprehensive multi-protocol library for non-consumer field equipment, with thousands of equipment profiles from hundreds of manufacturers, enabling fast project deployments.
Apart from bidirectional data transactions between field equipment and applications, which are transparently translated by several layers into the native format of each end, there is also an API collection called easyedge.io Bedrock which allows embedding all features on any platform or application.
easyedge.io natively includes easyedge.io Studio, which is a no-code project design application, which allows you to create, configure and deploy projects, either locally or remotely, without having to write a line of code.
It is an extremely powerful solution, but as is able to run on lightweight devices, it is also very suitable for mass projects that require lower hardware costs.

The ultimate solution for Industrial IoT connectivity
Who is it for?
Our value for each type of partner.
Cloud Platform Providers usually have an IoT offer and, although not so common, they may also have some support for the connectivity of field equipment, providing frameworks with some communication protocols. However, even in these cases, without having an equipment profile library, the setup of conventional equipment for IoT solutions requires a lot of engineering, which is time-consuming and especially prone to human error.With the market's most comprehensive library of equipment profiles easyedge.io would allow you to instantly exchange information with virtually any field equipment, resulting in a dramatic cost and time reduction on all your IoT projects. And since it is fully embeddable in your platform, it would be transparent to your customers.
Companies that offer or want to offer vertical IoT solutions to the market naturally focus on creating value for their customers, but sometimes, without realizing the complexity of field equipment connectivity, they end up in a time-consuming trap, putting project delivery at risk.
With easyedge.io, you can finally focus on what matters to your business. It is fully embeddable in your application and transparent to your customers. Having the most comprehensive equipment profile library on the market, it allows you to instantly put data from virtually any field equipment into your application, resulting in a dramatic reduction in cost and time on all your IoT projects.
IT Hardware Manufacturers
IT companies, especially network equipment manufacturers, such as routers, switches, and gateways, are in a privileged position to rule IoT Edge. However, not being field equipment manufacturers, every project is brownfield, and that's today's major obstacle to industrial digital transformation.
With the market's most comprehensive library of equipment profiles and countless options for applications and platforms connectivity, easyedge.io would empower your IoT Gateways, leapfrogging your positioning at the IoT Edge market and, above all, offering your customers a unique tool to overcome the challenges imposed by the ever-present brownfield.
Additionally, since easyedge.io can be customized with your brand, your business will always be protected
OT Hardware Manufacturers
OT companies are inextricably linked to the industrial sector. This solid relationship led to a huge installed base and very deep knowledge. However, all those years innovating have also ended in a tangle of installed technology with several protocols of many models and brands. The so-called Brownfield turned into today's major obstacle to industrial digital transformation.
easyedge.io offers you the most comprehensive equipment profile library allows you, in just a few clicks (or a few API calls, if easyedge.io is embedded in your solution), to place the data from field equipment on the cloud or in a local application.
easyedge.io substantially mitigates the Brownfield effects, resulting in a dramatic reduction of cost and time in all your IoT project implementations.
Integrators deeply feel the complexity of delivering IoT functional systems using a large diversity of software and countless field sensors and actuators. This invariably requires a great deal of engineering time, dramatically reducing value perception by customers, making many projects unfeasible.
But it doesn't have to be that way, easyedge.io could be your best ally to overcome that problem, collecting, processing and delivering the information, regardless of the equipment or data source and the application or cloud platform. It's a real IoT Edge Hub.
With the market's most comprehensive library of equipment profiles and countless options for applications and platforms connectivity, it allows you to instantly insert data from virtually any field equipment into virtually any application, resulting in a dramatic cost and time reduction on all your IoT projects.
In the non-consumer IoT market, customers need more than just communication services, since usually, when they venture into projects without the proper tools for collecting data from field equipment, they fail to deliver.
Once telcos already offer IoT communication services, it would be natural to add the field devices connectivity layer, making it much easier for your customers to easily execute IoT projects.
Additionally, since easyedge.io can be customized with your brand, or even fully incorporated into an existing IoT Platform/Marketplace, your business would always be protected.
