ESF makes it possible to set up and connect assets to the cloud in a matter of hours as it provides low-code/no-code web-based visual data flow programming and native support for AWS IoT Core and Azure IoT Hub / IoT Central.  EC simplifies deployments at scale and remote management of digital twins thanks to its novel Zero-Trust Provisioning protocol.

Our certified edge-to-cloud solutions have been validated in the field and deployed at scale by major industrial players, including a collaboration with ABB, where the IoT Edge Gateway has been deployed for customers optimizing their digital transformation journey.

“Cybersecurity is top priority for ABB,” says Luca Cavalli, ABB Electrification Ecosystem Manager. “The adoption of cybersecurity standards like IEC 62443, is a key driver to create secure edge/cloud solutions. It is also essential for the development of a solid partner ecosystem and enables the acceleration of digital adoption. Eurotech converged edge solution demonstrably meet our highest expectations in terms of scalability, ease of deployment and system-level cybersecurity.”

The new ReliaCOR portfolio, augmented by Eurotech IoT Edge Framework and Management Platform, brings a fresh breeze to the digital transformation world, providing state-of-the-art, certified cybersecurity solutions to large-scale edge AI deployments.


IoT Device Management Services to Reach US$36.8 Billion in Revenues by 2026


Device management services are evolving in response to greater breadth of device technologies such as edge intelligence and connectivity technologies, as well as to customer pain points like scalability and security of IoT deployments. But forward-looking suppliers are also preparing for a world where 41.3% of the connected devices will be using some form of LPWA technologies by 2026. Since IoT customers increasingly need to manage a larger fleet of connected devices, Global technology intelligence firm ABI Research forecasts that IoT device management services will top US$36.8 billion in revenues by 2026.

Standardization is beginning to play a bigger role in device management services, as more connected devices use LPWA technologies. Standardization is best exemplified by growth in adoption of LwM2M. This standard was embraced by the telcos but is now also embraced by the module, chipset, and gateway suppliers. The flip side of standardization is that it will increase commoditization of device management services. “Implementing a common standard such as LwM2M can complicate a device management vendor’s product differentiation strategy, but standards do address customer reservations of ‘lock-in’ to a proprietary platform,” says Abdullah Haider, IoT Network and Services Research Analyst at ABI Research.

Partnerships and collaborations between device management vendors will continue to accelerate. Device management vendors can partner with system integrators (SIs) who build an end-to-end solution. Device management suppliers can also partner with other players in the value chain “Companies recognize that a strategic partnership can facilitate both sales and product support channels. Co-operating with another vendor’s device management service is beneficial for a cloud hyper-scaler selling data storage and analytics, and for a Mobile Network Operator (MNO) selling connectivity or application enablement services as IoT device management platforms integrate with these other systems,” Haider explains.

Device management vendors from large hyper-scalers, (e.g., AWS and Microsoft Azure), established incumbent players (e.g., Eurotech, Telit, and Sierra Wireless), MNOs (e.g., Vodafone, Verizon, and Deutsche Telekom) and startups (e.g., EdgeIQ, Memfault, and 1nce) are all looking to disrupt the IoT device management ecosystem. “One key insight is that while competition breeds commoditization, companies are still keen to differentiate their device management services. Often this entails providing security services like device attestation, and mutual authentication while other players are considering remote hardware configurability in application segments like asset tracking, telematics, and condition-based monitoring. In general, more and more suppliers are adding device management services to differentiate their IoT solution suite and capture more IoT solution revenues,” Haider concludes.

These findings are from ABI Research’s IoT Device Management: Evolution of Technologies and Supplier Trends application analysis report. This report is part of the company’s IoT Network & Services research service, which includes research, data, and analyst insights. Based on extensive primary interviews, Application Analysis reports present in-depth analysis on key market trends and factors for a specific technology.


Eurotech and WaterView join forces to confront climate change effects through Edge AI Solutions


Eurotech, a trusted and leading enabler of the Internet of Things (IoT) in mission-critical applications, and WaterView, a company specialized in computer vision and AI for meteorology, hydrology, and environmental modeling, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding for a strategic partnership to enable real-time weather condition monitoring applications.

Eurotech’s hardware and software enable a simple and fast deployment of WaterView’s AI at the Edge. The integrated solution transforms existing surveillance cameras into remotely managed intelligent sensors without the need to change the existing infrastructure, to detect early signs of the increasingly recurring extreme weather events and quantify natural disasters.

“We are thrilled to partner up with a company like WaterView, with a strong vision towards a more sustainable future enabled by AI technologies: a perfect match with our DNA of enabling Edge AI in mission-critical applications,” stated Paul Chawla, Eurotech CEO. “We are excited to share our international footprint and customer reach, our long-term know-how and premium technology to scale up this solution to a wide range of use cases, with a common go-to-market and a ‘one stop’ integrated solution for our customers.”

“Eurotech provides a unique combination of certified hardware and software that enable us to cut down system integration efforts, time-to-market and costs of deployment of our AI on the Edge,” commented Paola Allamano, WaterView CEO. “Their integrated solution is open, guarantees a simple and safe connectivity to any Cloud with a vendor-agnostic approach and allows secure remote management and configuration of our Edge AI software.”

Both companies have a solid track record in offering their solutions to customers managing large infrastructures, like road and railway networks, electricity transmission grids and communication towers. From NextGenerationEU to the US Infrastructure Deal, the post-pandemic economy will be driven by unprecedented investments in infrastructure renovation, digital transformation and green transition, with an underlying focus on climate change resilience.

By joining their forces, Eurotech and WaterView are already demonstrating the potential of cameras as sentinels for the environment, to monitor weather and its effects. The first joint pilot projects are ongoing and opportunities have been identified in the markets of: smart infrastructures by leveraging cameras on highways and railways – on average 1 device every 3 to 5 km, over 100 thousand estimated cameras on Europe and USA; onboard trains and truck fleets, where cameras are already installed for other applications; and on tower sites – over 426 thousand telco towers in Europe and over 1 million including USA. Accidents can be avoided by analyzing the level of rain and snow on roads and rail tracks, flood damages can be safely evaluated by measuring the water level at a distance and wildfires can be prevented by detecting smoke at early stages.
