Clearly, there’s a huge need for what Echelon’s IzoT platform provides, which is a bridge from the pre-IP world of industrial devices to a more interconnected, IP-enabled world—but without sacrificing the reliability, security or rugged operations required for industrial device settings, and without big costs or hassles.”
