Automation manufacturer Opto 22 joins EdgeX ecosystem as a founding Silver level member to build an open-source framework for edge computing, together with over 45 additional EdgeX Foundry members

Hannover (Hannover Messe) and Temecula, CA - April 24, 2017 – As a continued step in the company’s long history of supporting and adopting open standards and specifications in the industrial automation and process control markets, Opto 22 today announced it has joined EdgeX Foundry as a founding member. EdgeX Foundry is an open-source project hosted by The Linux Foundation®, building a common open framework for Internet of Things (IoT) edge computing and an ecosystem of interoperable components to unify the marketplace and accelerate enterprise and Industrial IoT.

The EdgeX framework makes it easy to quickly create IoT edge solutions that have the flexibility to adapt to changing business needs.

Industrial IoT (IIoT) is delivering significant business value by improving efficiencies and increasing revenue through automation and analytics, but widespread fragmentation and the lack of a common IoT solution framework are hindering broad adoption and stalling market growth.

Designed to run on any hardware or operating system with any application environment, the EdgeX framework will quickly and easily deliver interoperability between connected devices, applications, and services, across a wide range of use cases.
