The pre-integrated Intel® Gateway Solutions for IoT bundles together Wind River IDP2.0 technology, McAfee security functionality and a wide variety of connectivity protocols, developer tools, and programming environments. This brings the benefits of IoT to legacy infrastructures with local device management and data sharing through a system of systems approach. Embedded systems customers can enjoy benefits such as not needing to replace existing infrastructure equipment and devices, being able to securely aggregate, share and filter data from the edge to the cloud, and being able to focus on adding new value-added services.
UTX-3115 includes Advantech SUSIAccess which provides remote device management, system recovery powered by Acronis and system protection powered by McAfee, allowing users to easily monitor, configure, control and recover multiple systems through a single console from a remote site. For example, the embedded box is able to acquire data from local or remote sensors or actuator devices, send it to the cloud to be turned into actionable information, and have it received back for processing. UTX-3115 contains a built-in Intel® Atom™ E3800 processor with low power consumption and high performance delivery.
