Place Logic Anywhere on the Edge

aicas EdgeSuite Place Logic Anywhere
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.
