Fujitsu launches ‘IntelliEdge’ platform for Industry 4.0

Fujitsu says it has expanded its Industrial Internet of Things capabilities with its new “IntelliEdge” ecosystem, which includes network edge processing capabilities.

Fujitsu says the IntelliEdge edge computing appliance enables the optimisation of industrial processes for Industry 4.0, securely connecting data and resources to people and devices and bridging the gap between operational technology in the field, and on-premises and cloud-based information technology.

Fujitsu is introducing the IntelliEdge appliance to manage OT devices, giving enterprises an unprecedented end-to-end view of the entire production processes to achieve a breakthrough in monitoring and managing optimised individual production lines at approximately the same cost as mass production.  Continue reading Fujitsu launches ‘IntelliEdge’ platform for Industry 4.0

Fujitsu claims its automated platform saves KLM 40 per cent in energy costs

Fujitsu claims a new, “low-maintenance, highly automated” storage platform it has provided is helping airline KLM to use 40 percent less energy than the previous system. 

KLM Equipment Services has deployed a “unified, high-availability” Fujitsu Eternus storage cluster which it says has doubled the speed and performance of its critical enterprise applications. 

This is enabling the airline to ensure a more efficient and reliable ground support service at Schiphol, Amsterdam’s main airport, ultimately helping flights to operate on schedule.  Continue reading Fujitsu claims its automated platform saves KLM 40 per cent in energy costs

How Fujitsu’s technology classifies time-series data

Fujitsu claims it has developed a new deep learning technology to analyse time-series data with high precision, a discovery that could help improve the efficiency of embedded chips in wearables and devices, for example.

When applied to Internet of Things data, the company says, its new technology “significantly improves accuracy by about 25 per cent compared to previous technology”.

Time-series data – which is basically continuous monitoring but with data taken at specific regular times, such as every millisecond – can be subject to severe volatility, making it difficult for people to discern patterns in the data.
