Polaris edge-to-cloud platform

Your premier edge-to-cloud data infrastructure

The key to optimizing remote operations is accurate high-performance edge analytics combined with stable, centralized cloud monitoring and management. Polaris leaves IoT and general edge devices miles behind with its broad compatibility with industrial protocols, high computational capacity, scalability, and centralized management.

Polaris: maximize performance of remote operations

Get the most out of your remote operations. Increase usage and performance. Monitor your fleet of planes, trains, and automobiles (or ships). Carry out advanced analytics right on your process and optimize for latency and performance.

Integrate your complete chain of subsystems to avoid vendor lock-in. Relax knowing you have the highest data quality and stability. We provide you with the premier edge infrastructure you need to implement and manage your integrated performance optimization applications.

Main drivers for edge analytics

There are good reasons edge computation and analysis is growing every day. Here are four of them:

Low latency requirement

Analytics results often need to be calculated real-time, like alerts or solutions to inform local operations. Edge analysis makes real-time calculation possible.

Manageability of the fleet

The volume of sensor data at the edge can be huge. So, it makes sense to only collect the essentials in the central cloud. Edge analytics keeps the entire data infrastructure manageable.

Bandwidth limitations & cost

Smart edge analytics reduce data transfer and, as a result, connectivity costs. In some situations, there is only enough bandwidth to transfer results. Edge analytics reduces your reliance on bandwidth.

Data sovereignty & compliance

Regulations and customer standards require limited data permissions and stringent data security. This sometimes means you’re not able to send all the data to a cloud endpoint. Edge analytics helps keep your data safe.

Why use Polaris?

Edge analytics that outperforms general IoT

Polaris offers you high-performance edge analytics. General IoT platforms only process limited data. Go beyond linear calculations and capture the level of detail that is so valuable to you.

    • Assets have their own characteristics; capture these with asset-specific algorithms
    • Use cases that require real-time analysis or processing high data volumes are now viable
    • Deploy ML and deep learning models directly at your assets, while keeping management central

Increase the accuracy of your analysis and maximize performance based on asset-specific insights.

Scalable edge-to-cloud infrastructure

We have designed Polaris to be scalable for any operational complexity and growth. We look beyond successful pilots and always keep your future roll-out in mind.

    • No minimum (nor maximum) nodes in your infrastructure
    • Dynamic filtering options manage your data flows
    • Centralized device/node management minimizes overhead

There is always an infrastructure to suit your operation and business case.

Minimize overhead via centralized management

With Polaris you don’t have to depend on expensive, remote support. Improve overall uptime and lower costs by centrally managing your secure edge-to-cloud data analytics infrastructure.

    • Create edge-specific configurations to get the most out of your asset-specific performance
    • Use standardized templates to make management as easy as possible
    • Secure data transfer and access protocols

Stay in control of your infrastructure and make it the core of your integrated fleet approach.

Improving safety with deep learning

Maersk Drilling wanted to improve their operational safety and efficiency, by implementing a conditional red zone solution. We developed a vision-based AI solution to alert crews about any unsafe situations.

Remote CCTV Monitoring

Making remote operations visible

Noble depends on satellite communication for their offshore rigs. They need to maximize their fleet’s operational performance. Local crews operate the rigs, with sporadic, centralized support. This requires sufficient visual context.
