HPE claims to be able to fuse information and operational technology together in their new edge-network hardware and software system solution. HPE’s new EdgeLine OT Link Platform is a workflow engine and application catalogue designed to let users orchestrate components and applications and merge data from various platforms via a drag-and-drop user interface. To complement the OT Link Platform are HPE Edgeline OT Link certified modules. These modules are adapters that will connect to OT systems, thereby enabling bi-directional, time-sensitive control and communication via a variety of common protocols. The new EdgeLine OT Link solution is due out in the first quarter next year.
HPE is offering new Edgeline Converged Edge System hardware and software designed to let enterprises not only control machines in their facilities, but also manage and analyze the sea of data generated by devices and sensors at the edge network.
