No one is an expert in every aspect of IoT, and no one can do it alone. Networks may use fiber, copper or wireless connections. Individual devices may be anything from remote network gateways to Ethernet switches. IoT software may be tasked to handle anything from protocol conversion to data analytics, and all of these different pieces must work together seamlessly. Creating IoT solutions calls for teamwork and cooperation between experts in many different fields.
That’s why Advantech B+B Smartworx is passionate about collaborating with our strong ecosystem of technology partners. By working together we leverage our collective expertise, and we deliver comprehensive IoT solutions that provide customers with practical, cost-effective answers that let them achieve their goals.
From the asset to the analytics, Advantech B+B Smartworx and our technology partners deliver the optimised connectivity performance that makes IoT a reality.
