The powerful new OpEdge-8D meets the fast-growing need for a seamless, secure and reliable way to connect operational systems with information systems. The advanced solution gives organizations a new way to run applications that manage and analyze large amounts of data and create actionable insights that can optimize production processes and improve efficiency.

OpEdge-8D is uniquely designed to:

  • Deploy applications (containers and virtual machines) at the network edge to leverage insights in the field that provide a value to the business, such as for operational efficiency and predictive maintenance.
  • Simplify application deployment across edge devices, no matter the quantity or location, to enable scalability and drive productivity with Belden Horizon™ console.
  • Ensure a protected link to the cloud with its secure remote access capability.

“As the number of connected devices increases, driven by the IIoT, many organizations struggle with a way to leverage massive volumes of data for smarter, more effective management of operational processes,” said Jeremy Friedmar, senior product manager, Edge Solutions at Belden. “The OpEdge-8D leverages the latest IT technologies to streamline the process of bringing local operational data to where it can be integrated quickly in a variety of applications that will produce insights that ultimately improve efficiency, maximize uptime and enable continuous process improvement.”

Suitable for any industrial setting, the OpEdge-8D is ideal for manufacturing, energy and transportation companies looking to unite IT and OT data – from the sensor to the cloud.
