Making Edge Easy

How micro data centres are boosting manufacturing

Smart Manufacturing

Manufacturing in Australia is – at last – benefiting from a targeted government campaign to help revive it to the glory days of the 1960s. With financial backing and incentives, the industry is in the infancy of its growth stage. One vital aspect that’s set to play an enormous role in the re-emergence of the sector is that of Smart Manufacturing in combination with Edge computing.

Manufacturing used to account for over 30% of GDP during the 1960s. Today, that figure has fallen to a mere 5.6%. The key to advancing back towards those halcyon days is simple: productivity.

Edge computing is the silver bullet that presents the opportunity to increase output – something that savvy operators are already taking advantage of.

The Advantages of using Edge in Manufacturing

The concept of life on the Edge means bringing data capture and analysis closer to the place it occurs. Doing this brings about 5 distinct advantages – all of which are necessary to leap from a traditional to a smart manufacturing process that will provide the baseline to dramatically increase productivity.

These 5 advantages are as follows:

  1. Data Analytic Management

  2. Reduced latency

  3. Increased interoperability

  4. Cheaper storage

  5. Better security

Edge Computing and Micro Data Centres are helping boost manufacturing

Edge Computing and Micro Data Centres are going to boost manufacturing and Smart Factories that rely on AI and IIoT.

How IoT Growth is Edging Out Traditional Data Storage

Companies can now see the advantage of edge data centres. Not only does their proximity improve the efficiency of IoT deployment, but there’s a positive cost impact as well.
