mPower™ Edge Intelligence Recognized for Excellence in the Growing Edge Computing Space

Las Vegas, NV – January 7, 2020 –Multi-Tech Systems, Inc., a leading provider of Industrial Internet of Things solutions announced today that mPower Edge Intelligence, a new embedded software offering, building on its popular application enablement platform, has received a 2019 IoT Edge Computing Excellence Award from IoT Evolution World, the leading web site covering the Internet of Things (IoT) marketplace.

The award recognizes the companies emerging as leaders in the growing edge computing space. Companies selected for this award have proven that their products are enabling advanced IoT deployments by offering edge solutions that bring real-time computing, data availability, analytics, AI and machine learning to edge devices.

mPower represents the unification and evolution of well-established MultiTech smart router and gateway firmware platforms. In addition to ongoing support of the current feature-sets, MultiConnect® rCell 100 Series router customers now have access to the programmability of the industry-leading MultiTech Conduit® gateway, while gateway customers can enjoy the additional security features currently available on the rCell.

mPower Edge Intelligence simplifies integration with a variety of popular upstream IoT platforms to streamline edge-to-cloud data management and analytics, while also providing the programmability and processing capability to execute critical tasks at the edge of the network to reduce latency; control network and cloud services costs, and ensure core functionality – even in instances when network connectivity may not be available.

“When it comes to adding value and making smart choices, particularly related to security, the ability to make decisions at the edge of Industrial IoT networks is an absolute must,” said Prasad Kandikonda, Vice President of Engineering. “We are honored that mPower was recognized for its excellence as it reflects what we’ve learned from years of delivering smart devices to a variety of industries and applications.”
