Gateway Design & Development

Overview

The evolution of IoT and cloud technologies is leading to a massive growth in connected systems. This in turn is driving the use of different types of gateways to connect on-premise networks to the cloud and field level protocols to application level protocols.  Such gateways no longer just work as protocol translators but enable critical decision making, analytics and machine learning at the edge level.

Almost every IoT solution requires a gateway in the network. For OEMs to remain competitive, they are increasingly seeking specialized partners to build application specific gateways in shortest period of time.
