With industry predictions of the connection of billions of installed devices and embedded sensors over the next 5-years and the success story in North America, Europe is on the edge of large-scale deployment of this critical technology. Sectors such as automobile, manufacturing, utilities, oil and gas, gaming and retail are turning to Edge technology with Germany boasting a first mover advantage when it comes to regulation, technological adoption and standards.
The focus of Edge Europe at present is in deploying within the aforementioned complex manufacturing plants, and in developing automated car systems and motorways. Smart factories offer a very interesting case study as technologies and devices within a typical manufacturing plant delivering precision engineering, the storage and security of data necessary to facilitate this becomes more and more critical.
With this in mind, the premier gathering of Edge technology manufacturers, early adopters of Edge and the new wave of Edge deployers Edge Europe 2020, will be hosting this year’s European event in Frankfurt, Mainz, Germany 26th March.
