Vertical industry testbeds

CHALLENGE:

A test environment is needed for algorithms and architectures that meets a common set of requirements for many testbeds (see "Testbed in Depth")

GOAL:

A test facility that can be configured into complex edge compute environments, in order to further the state-of-the-art in edge analytics and algorithms

COMMERCIAL BENEFITS:

More rapid development of testbeds and industrial IoT innovation

The Testbed

Many emerging industrial IoT applications require coordinated, real-time analytics at the "edge", using algorithms that require a scale of computation and data volume/velocity previously seen only in the data center. Frequently, the networks connecting these machines do not provide sufficient capability, bandwidth, reliability, or cost structure to enable analytics-based control or coordination algorithms to run in a separate location from the machines.

Industrial Internet Consortium members Hewlett-Packard and Real-Time Innovation have joined together on the Edge Intelligence Testbed. The primary objective of the Edge Intelligence Testbed is to significantly accelerate the development of edge architectures and algorithms by removing the barriers that many developers face: access to a wide variety of advanced compute hardware and software configurable to directly resemble state-of-the-art edge systems at very low cost to the tester/developer.
