New combined offering provides cutting-edge solution for industrial applications with edge-to-cloud iterative machine learning

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Sept. 27, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — FogHorn, a leading developer of edge intelligence software for industrial and commercial Internet of Things (IIoT) solutions, today announced that it has partnered with VIA Technologies, Inc., a provider of highly-integrated embedded platform and system solutions, to accelerate the deployment of edge-to-cloud solutions for industrial, transportation and smart city applications.

VIA will integrate FogHorn’s award-winning Lightning platform into its solutions to enable closed-loop edge-to-cloud data processing in VIA Edge AI systems. This will provide VIA’s technology, telecommunications and consumer electronics customers with higher-quality predictive insights to improve asset performance as well as reduce underlying operational costs to propel their businesses forward.

FogHorn integration into VIA’s Edge AI systems will provide customers several new benefits, including:

  • Edge-to-cloud iterative machine learning (ML): FogHorn’s technology can update edge devices in rapid iterations with continuous inferencing on all sensor data, including video, audio and 3D for faster and more extensive data processing.
  • Compressed, localized footprint: FogHorn embeds its edge intelligence directly into small-footprint IIoT devices to ensure streaming takes place as close to the data source as possible.
  • Real-time, CEP-based streaming analytics: FogHorn helps industrial companies gather actionable insights more quickly. This enables greater operating efficiencies such as decreased downtime, higher yield and more energy savings.

“FogHorn provides the most advanced edge computing solution available with unprecedented low-latency for industrial applications,” said Richard Brown, vice president of international marketing, VIA Technologies, Inc. “We look forward to providing this sophisticated solution to our customers to give them a competitive advantage and ensure the utmost efficiency for the end users they serve.”

“As the IIoT market continues to grow and evolve, it is important for industrial and technology companies to ‘edgify’ their operations with edge intelligence,” said Yuta Endo, vice president and general manager of APAC Operations at FogHorn. “Our CEP analytics engine provides industrial organizations with actionable data to digitally transform their operations. FogHorn’s proven ability to process high volumes of sensor data in a compact footprint enables companies to save on bottom-line operational costs. In addition, by monitoring and preventing failures, they can also reduce the total cost of ownership for their assets.”
