Industrial edge computing gateway
Elevate Your Network Performance and Security With Industrial Edge ComputingIn the fast-paced world of information technology, more industries are using IoT devices to collect large volumes of information at breakneck speeds. More often than not, this data is transferred to a centralised storage system like the cloud for analysis and storage. Advancing technological solutions aren’t without their challenges. The reliance on a secure wireless network creates issues, like a lack of real-time analytics and delays in data collection — the need to manage large amounts of data has led many companies to look for new solutions. As businesses change, the need for faster, more secure, and more reliable networks grows. Our cutting-edge Industrial Edge Computing Gateway can help. Our industrial IoT edge computing gateway solution uses edge computing and strong connections to improve industrial networks. It connects edge devices and sensors to the cloud or data centre for real-time data processing, analysis, and decision-making.
Robustel’s EG5120 is a new generation of industrial edge computing gateway, supporting global 5G/4G/3G/2G networks for cellular backhaul, with a fully-fledged Debian 11 (bullseye) based operating system able to support thousands of existing or new ARMv8 (Raspberry Pi compatible) based applications.

What is an edge computing?Edge computing is the processing and storage of data that takes place at or near the source. In simpler terms, it means running fewer processes in the cloud and instead running them on the device itself. A smart edge device removes the barriers that come with transmitting large amounts of information by processing the data it collects, sending only relevant information back to a centralised location. Edge networks are already in use across a range of industries. From devices that monitor traffic flow to utility grid analysis and the monitoring of safety on oil rigs and licence plate recognition systems.
The industrial edge computing advantageMany industries are already leveraging industrial edge computing technologies to manage the large volumes of collected data more efficiently. With the market only expected to increase rapidly, any industry that utilises IoT data collection devices can benefit from an edge gateway. Some of the key benefits include:
- Increased bandwidth. With the collection of large amounts of data comes physical and cost limits of transmission. Edge computing removes that by only transmitting relevant data.
- Reduced latency. Time-sensitive applications need a response in near real-time, with no latency. Ideal for applications like occupancy sensing and camera AI.
- Cost-efficiency. Processing data locally reduces the amount of data that needs to be stored in a cloud-based location.
- Increased reliability. The flow of data can often be interrupted by network congestion, causing interruptions and delays.
Robustel’s industrial edge computing gatewaysRobustel’s EG5100 and EG5120 are the new generation of industrial edge computing gateways. These edge devices support global networks for cellular backhaul, with a Debian Operating System that can support existing or new applications. Connect both routers with RCMS, Robustel’s free router monitoring service. From a remote location, users can see an overview of your network quickly - from monitor data usage to signal strength.
