Recent research studies state the Internet of Things market is expected to reach $1.6 trillion in industrial industries, $1.2 trillion in commercial industries, and $1 trillion in consumer industries within the next couple of years. Although this suggests a positive outlook for the market, companies are struggling to generate intelligence from operational data collected by these connected machines. Edge computing solves this by bringing big data, streaming analytics and machine learning as close as possible to the devices producing the data. Companies see incredible improvements once they translate their data into actionable insights using edge computing, machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI). These technologies will help process mass quantities of data and deliver insights to help companies apply predictive maintenance, improve yield and quality, enhance worker safety, and more.
New services from major cloud and software providers, including AWS, Microsoft and IBM, rely on sending data to the cloud for processing. However, FogHorn SystemsTM offers a transformational compliment to this cloud approach, lowering costs, reducing latency and optimizing industrial operations for the real-time processes in manufacturing, energy, oil and gas, and more. Because thousands of sensors are constantly sending data at the rate of every 20 or 30 milliseconds, much of this information is useless within minutes, or even seconds. FogHorn enables businesses to take the information that matters – the anomalies or patterns unearthed through analytics applied directly at the edge – and translate it into operational intelligence.
Leader in Edge Intelligence Software for Industrial IoT
FogHorn’s industrial IoT software stack provides an efficient and highly scalable end-to-end solution that blends the benefits of real-time, on-site processing of sensor data from industrial machines with cloud-based management, analysis and machine learning. David C. King, CEO of FogHorn Systems continues to design and develop innovative ideas and new capabilities in this fast-changing market. Prior to FogHorn, King led AirTight Networks, a technology leader in secure cloud-managed Wi-Fi, through four successful up rounds of VC funding. Additionally, he served as President and CEO of Proxim, a pioneer in WLANs and the first publicly-traded Wi-Fi company.
King supports FogHorn’s global customers and partners as they roll out a broad range of powerful edge intelligence applications for industrial and commercial systems. To inspire creativity and innovation in the workspace, he guides the organization to hire people with great passion and curiosity about not just technology, but also other hobbies and interests. He looks for workers with a successful track record that helped build market share and move innovative new products from early adoption to mass market.
