Intel Quark, Intel Atom and Intel Core processor-based models deliver scalable computing solutions for a variety of Industrial IoT applications

Industrial computing and board maker Adlink Technology has added IoT gateway models supporting Intel IoT Gateway Technology. The MXE-110i, MXE-202i, and MXE-5400i, based on the Intel Quark, Intel Atom, and Intel Core processors, respectively, expand the scope of Adlink’s IoT gateway-based scalable computing platforms.


Intel IoT Gateway Technology enables development of intelligent gateways, which are critical to connecting systems with next-generation intelligent infrastructures and increasing business value for a world of applications. The Adlink IoT Gateway product line integrates Wind River Intelligent Device Platform XT, and McAfee Embedded Control, andis available for Intel IoT Gateway Software Suite, Intel IoT Gateway Pro Software Suite, and Intel IoT Gateway Pro Pilot Software Suite.


“We understand customers require an application-ready solution to tackle the complexity of IIoT infrastructure. We’re happy to leverage Intel Gateway Technology to provide seamless connectivity between devices and the cloud, ensuring the interoperability of edge devices through an open architecture enabling rapid application and service, all to successfully equip new connected applications with minimum effort,” said Roy Wan, general manager of Adlink’s Measurement and Automation Product Segment.


“A key motivator in the adoption of IIoT functionality is the potential to unlock knowledge from data,” adds Rose Schooler, vice president IoT Strategy and Technology at Intel.


The latest version of Intel IoT Gateway Technology enables enhanced user interface, security, scalability, interoperability, and manageability, as well as support for a wider variety of fieldbus communication protocol, including Modbus (RTU/Ethernet), BACNet, CAN for industrial applications, Exegin, Zigbee, Open Z-Wave, and 6lowpan empowering smart buildings. Other features include support for MQTT, Bluetooth/BLE, CoAP, XMPP device-to-cloud protocol, as well as AllJoyn and IoTivity (open source software framework) to enable seamless device-to-device connectivity.


Additions to Adlink’s IoT gateway product line include the MXE-110i, MXE-202i, and MXE-5400i. The MXE-5400i, based on Intel Core i3, Intel Core i5, and Intel Core i7 processors operates over extended operating temperature range (from –20°C to
