Place Logic Anywhere on the Edge

EdgeSuite-Place-Logic-Anywhere-v3
Resolve the tension between constantly rising customer expectations and the need to reduce complexity and costs. Solutions from aicas help to successfully and sustainably shape your digital transformation and solve these current challenges:

Computing & Software Abstraction

Simplification by abstraction is aicas‘ concept to control complex environments transparently. aicas’ solutions ensure that applications are independent from hardware, platforms, and operating systems. They allow the unification and reuse of code across devices, hardware platforms, and multiple product lines—even for critical components running realtime operating systems (RTOS) and a broad range of CPUs.

Platformization & Scalability

aicas EdgeSuite unifies platforms and standards: manage on-device software platforms from different producers on a single platform. aicas simplifies centralized architectures as the key to openness, extensibility, and scalability. aicas’ modern microservices-based software architecture enables the scaling of software across all device domains and across manufacturers, suppliers, and operators.

Over-the-Air Updates (OTA)

aicas provides over-the-air (OTA) software management for your devices—from micro to full updates. Modular, differential updates enable unlimited deployments on millions of devices—anytime and throughout the lifetime of your device. Modularity offers new ways to accelerate time-to-market. Scalable OTA updates of all devices in your environment are ensured.

Connect Device to Anything (D2X) Codeless

Easy coding with prebuilt core components and no-code functionality saves resources, while more users can use aicas EdgeSuite more efficiently: manage fleets of devices, provide the right data at the right place at the right time, and ensure full software life cycle management. All without having to write a single line of code, integrity is increased and bugs in the code are eliminated.

The Core of aicas EdgeSuite

aicas EdgeSuite integrates three control layers

EdgePortal

With the portal to EdgeSuite, you can control everything that happens in and around EdgeSuite with an easy-to-use graphical user interface. Manage your runtimes and the logic running on these runtimes or the broader system, all conveniently from your browser. Full CI/CD with built-in automation reduces your efforts for your on-device development while ensuring easy updateability and upgradeability.

EdgeCore

Standards-based communication between all elements is controlled centrally by EdgeCore. It provides secure messaging, reliable data routing, easy configuration, transparent provisioning, and more.

EdgeRuntimes

Abstract and unify IoT applications from the underlying platforms. This allows you to place and run your logic and code on almost any hardware architecture and operating system, anywhere on the edge and on almost any target system. aicas EdgeSuite supports third-party standards-based runtimes such as AWS IoT Greengrass V2 and includes aicas JamaicaAMS that is based on aicas JamaicaVM, the Java-based deterministic runtime with low-latency, small footprint, and outstanding low processor utilization.
