STARKVILLE, Miss. — Camgian Microsystems Corporation announced today its intent to bring edge computing to the Internet of Things (IoT) market through a new category of device to be released this October. The device, called Egburt, will offer enterprises a fundamentally new way to implement IoT solutions where all crucial data and real-time, actionable analytics remain local with higher-level information processing, visualization, and distribution performed in a secure, cloud environment.

“Real-time, actionable information is going to be a crucial piece of IoT,” said Gary Butler, chairman and CEO of Camgian Microsystems. “Centralized computing architectures constructed using legacy IT products will not be able to support the timely analysis and reporting that will be required for IoT, especially as large numbers of devices continue to be added to the network. It is our opinion that addressing this issue requires a new distributed approach to enterprise computing powered by a completely new category of device for the IoT market.”

Egburt’s flexible sensor interfaces, real-time processing and low-power design will create more efficient and secure ways to monitor, optimize and control business processes across a range of related IoT markets including smart cities, agriculture, infrastructure, manufacturing, facilities management and retail. Egburt will be officially launched at the Internet of Things Global Summit in Washington D.C. October 27 – 28, 2014.
