Key findings

 

  • Most industrial Internet of Things gateways are limited by low processing capacity and offer four basic functions: data aggregation, data normalization, basic event filtering and data forwarding to the IoT platform.
     
  • Most industrial gateway vendors offer in-house-developed gateway management utilities, with limited integration to Tier 1 IoT platforms, complicating deployment, change management and scalability.
     
  • A myriad of edge network protocols and rapidly evolving cellular network technology warrants a modular gateway architecture; however, most industrial IoT gateways do not offer this, demanding frequent reinvestment and system redesign.
     
  • Gateways in industrial settings are deployed in physically challenging and mission-critical environments and, therefore, need to meet stringent safety and security requirements.

 

 

Table 3 provides the list of Representative Gateway Appliance Vendors, also including SECO with its SYS-C23-IGW,SYS-B68-IGW and EDGEHOG solutions.
