GE Transportation’s EdgeLINC Software is promoted as a comprehensive solution for IIoT edge-to-cloud connectivity with efficient device management, configuration and streaming analytics capabilities. Industrial assets generate valuable information at the edge or on a machine or device where embedded sensors collect data. When operating heavy machinery in variable environments, the ability to compute, manage, analyze and act upon that data is essential to benefit from the Industrial Internet.
EdgeLINC enables complete user control over configuration, telemetry, alerts and leverages SAS’s Event Stream Processing (ESP) engine integrated with Predix Machine, Predix Edge Manager and Asset Performance Management (APM) solutions. EdgeLINC is capable of running on GE Transportation’s GoLINC platform as well as third party devices, and supports on-premises, cloud and hybrid cloud deployment and integration.
EdgeLINC is currently deployed on over 1,000 locomotives by a major Class I railroad in North America, driving productivity from consolidation of management of multiple devices and applications, and operational efficiencies from real-time analytics of train crew performance.
