PrismTech Selected by B+B SmartWorx to Deliver High Performance, Intelligent Data Sharing for Next Generation Industrial Internet of Things Gateways.

PrismTech's Vortex data sharing solution helps enable B+B SmartWorx focus on the Internet of Things market.

Founded in 1981, B+B SmartWorx, formerly B&B Electronics, provides intelligent M2M and Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity solutions for wireless and wired networks. The company designs and builds device connectivity and network infrastructure products that deliver intelligent connectivity at the "edge" of networks in remote and demanding environments. Working globally with experienced channel and application partners to deliver complete application solutions, the company is known for building rugged networking products that are easy to deploy and manage.

B+B SmartWorx has selected PrismTech's Vortex intelligent data sharing platform to strengthen its growing IoT market presence. B+B SmartWorx, a provider of IoT and network edge platforms, will deploy Vortex in its next generation of Industrial IoT gateways.

"During our evaluation process, we found that Vortex delivered superior data connectivity and offered the robust set of Qualities of Service we required," said Tim Taberner, Global Product Manager for Advanced IoT Gateways, B+B SmartWorx.  "It enables the high performance interoperable data sharing between components deployed in our Swarm Intelligence architecture, contributing to our competitive edge in the IoT gateway market."

One of the premier B+B SmartWorx product lines that will employ PrismTech's Vortex is SmartSwarm.  The product will provide customers greater flexibility and choice in the way data is enriched, aggregated, filtered and routed, allowing B+B SmartWorx and its partners and customers to quickly and easily integrate and translate data in different formats and using different protocols, either coming from the sensors to the applications or from the applications to backend systems in the cloud.

Based on the OMG's Data Distribution Service (DDS) open standard, Vortex provides device-to-device, device-to-cloud and cloud-to-cloud data sharing in real time.  It is a crucial enabler for systems that must reliably and securely deliver high volumes of data with stringent end-to-end qualities-of-service.  Vortex has the ability to deliver the right information to the right place at the right time – a perfect fit for IoT applications.
