FreeWave Technologies Delivers New Edge Data Software Platform

The solution you need for real-time data processing and storage capability at the network edge


BOULDER (March 4, 2021) – Today FreeWave Technologies, a leader in industrial edge computing and long-range industrial wireless connectivity, now offers seamless industrial data collection with the introduction of FreeWave Edge. The new software platform performs real-time processing of industrial protocols and sensor data providing edge data storage, processing and cloud compatibility alongside existing enterprise systems. The benefit? Faster, high-resolution data even under challenging connectivity scenarios with added store and forward capabilities.

FreeWave Edge marks the first software introduction from is acquisition of CPU LLC, a decades old engineering focused software analytics company that produced multiple software suites in the industrial market.  For existing FreeWave customers the addition of FreeWave Edge means greater access to network operations, while adding bandwidth and processing capacity. The platform also drastically reduces the need for additional capital investments. CPU has helped accelerate FreeWave’s momentum into SCADA and digital applications in the cloud.

“FreeWave Edge is a direct reflection of our commitment to build a robust and fully-integrated suite of edge computing solutions for industrial customers and system integrators looking to increase network and operation efficiencies and configure data processing at the edge,” said FreeWave’s CEO Kirk Byles. “What all this means is, we listened to our customers who recognize the hodgepodge of hardware and software is hindering their growth, and we created a solution to fill that void. Too many times we’ve heard about how differing protocols can’t work together or hardware isn’t compatible, or… doesn’t’ matter. FreeWave is here to provide a bridge between hardware and software in the industrial world. This is our mission and passion.”

FreeWave Edge makes it simple to configure custom system alerts and data processing specific to the needs of industrial operations, connecting them to preferred reporting systems, email or the Cloud. Lost connectivity can often mean lost data. Free Wave Edge addresses that with its Store & Forward feature at the edge, ensuring no critical data analytics get left behind. A straightforward web interface allows users to set up data inputs and connect to industrial controllers and devices with standard protocols or sensors via analog and digital IO. The platform also delivers the ability to publish data to a wide variety of enterprise tools via configurable MQTT.
