LYON, France and TEL AVIV, Israel, Sept. 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — SolidRun, a leading developer and manufacturer of high-performance edge computing solutions, today announced the addition of SolidSense N8 Compact IoT to its line of SolidSense-branded enterprise-grade IoT edge gateways. Powerful, scalable, and cost effective, the new SolidSense N8 Compact IoT edge gateway features a mix of technologies that make it an excellent solution for business applications. The new SolidSense N8 Compact IoT edge gateway will be showcased at SIDO, taking place in Lyon, France on September 22-23, 2021.

Building upon SolidRun’s partnership with Wirepas®, the new SolidSense N8 IoT Compact features Wirepas Linux Gateway software that enables reliable, massive-scale communications from Wirepas Massive-enabled devices backhauled over cellular, Wi-Fi or ethernet connections. Additionally, Wirepas provides built-in support for communication with Wirepas cloud assets, such as network diagnostics and positioning engines.

With its flexible radio features, the SolidSense N8 IoT Compact can support up to two Wirepas radio interfaces, which benefit further from Wirepas Massive’s unique automatic multi-gateway and load-balancing support, which automatically gives higher data throughput. These features allow SolidSense gateways to support large Wirepas mesh networks with massive data requirements. Using its powerful networking and processing capabilities, SolidSense gateways seamlessly integrate Wirepas mesh capabilities into any enterprise IoT network.

«Wirepas customers use Wirepas Massive in industrial-grade applications like sensor monitoring, preventative maintenance, lighting control and asset tracking. Devices running on Wirepas mesh ensure coverage everywhere in a building, even in the largest warehouses and hospitals. One network can have several gateways without having to configure or commission a device on a particular gateway. This means that the requirements for gateway reliability and performance are high. SolidRun’s N8 IoT Compact gateways perfectly match the expectations of our customers,» said Jani Vehkalahti, SVP Global Sales at Wirepas.»

«Modern enterprises rely on several network-connect devices and sensors for their daily operations. However, the amount of data generated by these networks can create a major bandwidth bottleneck if processing and analytics is managed at the cloud. Our SolidSense N8 edge gateway is designed to monitor and analyze tons of sensors at the edge, reducing the volume of data sent over the internet and making networks far more efficient,» said Dr. Atai Ziv, CEO at SolidRun. «With its vast performance and limitless application support and seamless expandability, our new SolidSense N8 is a swiss army knife for enterprise IoT applications.»

Ideal for enabling automation, asset tracking, security, smart buildings, and more, SolidSense Edge Gateways are scalable and capable of managing single applications to processing the data from numerous sensors within a building in real time. SolidSense N8 IoT Compact Edge Gateways can be ordered with a variety of connectivity options and are powered by NXP i.MX8M Nano processors. The solid-state, fanless design of all SolidSense products allows for a compact, fit-anywhere package that can withstand a variety of environmental factors and temperature fluctuations, providing years of reliable operation.

Running on Linux, SolidSense gateways have a near limitless amount of open-source software applications available to them, and software can be deployed or upgraded automatically over the air, or by a field technician. Out of the box, developers are provided access to a full suite of open-source software solutions that can run on the gateways and in the cloud for device and connectivity management.

SolidSense cloud is available as a Platform as a Service (PaaS) or can be deployed on customer IT infrastructures.

All SolidSense Edge Gateways are OEM ready, but SolidRun will work with customers to configure custom systems to any industry’s or enterprise’s specific IoT needs.

SolidSense N8 Edge Gateways are available today from SolidRun at www.solid-run.com/solidsense.
