Connecting the Old and New with Intelligent GatewaysWith more than 85 percent of today’s devices based on existing legacy systems, 2 a significant need exists for an interim step to address interoperability instead of replacing all existing infrastructure. Intel is working with McAfee and Wind River to address this challenge with a new family of intelligent gateway solutions that connect legacy systems, providing common interfaces and seamless communication between devices and the cloud. Targeting industrial, energy and transportation markets, this system of systems helps ensure that the data generated by devices and existing infrastructure can be shared securely with the cloud and for analysis. The new family of intelligent gateway solutions from Intel provides integrated and pre-validated hardware and software, including McAfee Embedded Control and the Wind River® Intelligent Device Platform, that help develop, prototype and deploy application services faster so companies can focus on creating new, value-added services. With these solutions, users can securely aggregate, filter and share data from the edge to the cloud in areas such as monitoring high-value industrial assets, facilitating manufacturing automation, energy grid automation, and commercial fleet monitoring. For example, Intel is working with Westfalen Weser Energie*, a large power and gas distribution grid operator, to develop and deploy gateways in its secondary energy substations. As more renewables come online, managing energy flows becomes more complicated and Westfalen Weser Energie is using intelligent gateways to interface with its legacy devices and acquire, analyze and act on data in real-time. The first set of intelligent gateway solutions will feature versions based on the Intel Quark SoC X1000 and Intel Atom processor E3800 product family and will be available in the first quarter of 2014. Unlocking Intelligence in Data from Device to the Datacenter Intel is delivering a comprehensive portfolio of hardware and software products designed to unlock the data intelligence from the device through the network to the cloud to enable new business models and service offerings. By developing horizontal building blocks for vertical end-to-end analytics as well as distributed analytics for edge systems and datacenter, Intel is enabling companies to turn big data into actionable information.
Daikin Applied*, (formerly Daikin McQuay* and a wholly owned subsidiary of Daikin Industries, Ltd.) the world’s largest air conditioning, heating, ventilating and refrigeration company, is using the Intel-based intelligent gateway solutions to deploy a complete end-to-end solution for commercial HVAC equipment. Intel is enabling Daikin Applied to connect its existing Rebel rooftop units and deliver data to the cloud that is then aggregated and analyzed. By using an integrated intelligent gateway solution, Daikin Applied is able to focus on rapidly deploying differentiated value-added services such as real-time HVAC unit performance, remote diagnostics, monitoring and control, advanced energy management, and third party content integration services to its customers.The technology advancement enables Daikin Applied to harness large volumes of data and put that knowledge to work in moving the industry towards intelligent building systems that intuitively know what building occupants need in terms of efficiency, comfort and reliability. Using the Intel-based intelligent gateway solution, Daikin Applied will be able to help people better manage the performance of their buildings and make them aware of HVAC issues before they happen.
