Digitizing manufacturing operations to create factories of the future

The pressure is on for manufacturers to deliver higher-quality products at a lower price point.

By harnessing the power of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), manufacturers can rapidly enhance operational efficiency factory-wide, leveraging remote monitoring and control to automate their way to success.

Gain an Intelligent Edge in Your Manufacturing Operations

IIoT unlocks unprecedented efficiencies for today’s industrial manufacturers by enabling them to aggregate, analyze, and actively manipulate operational data from every area of the factory floor, giving key stakeholders the insight and control they need for effective real-time decision making. FreeWave enables IIoT efficiencies by pushing IQ computing power to the network edge, distributing analysis to occur where processes are running.


As a result, we eliminate the expense and delay of moving your growing volumes of data to a central location for processing. This allows you to get more insights from the same devices without overburdening the network and without replacing existing infrastructure. In fact, adding our smart layer of edge connectivity and computing can reduce existing bandwidth requirements by up to 95% while achieving millisecond response times.
