IOT EDC Reference Benchmark - Remote Monitoring of Assets in Connected Factories
As stated in the previous reference benchmark, one of the missions of the IOT Enterprise Deployment Center (EDC) is to showcase how real-world IOT business problems are solved. Our goal is that these benchmarks can be used as a reference or baseline for architects working on their own implementations, showing not only a successful at-scale implementation, but also what happens when that same implementation is pushed to, or even past, it's limits.
The second in this series is attached here, this time reflecting a Connected Factory implementation. ThingWorx was deployed alongside Kepware Server, with the numbers of things, the number of properties, and the write rate for those properties being varied to once again test the capabilities of a remote monitoring use case, but this time in a Connected Factory setting. The business logic was kept simple to ensure it was not the limiting factor, as the throughput between Kepware Server and ThingWorx was pushed to the limit. See first hand the capabilities of Kepware Server and ThingWorx Foundation to handle implementations centered around real-time data reporting
More Connected Factory implementations will be added to this document in time, with multiple Kepware Server deployments and other scenarios to come. Please feel free to use this community post to ask any questions about our approach and discuss any design, deployment, and simulation factors.
