I-IoT Defined Networks
IPG is a pioneer in “IoT Defined Networking”. In support of this, IPG has created GearBox, an on-premise appliance that Orchestrates, Synchronizes, Manages and Secures IoT defined networks.
Orchestration - GearBox "fingerprints" all devices on a given network, analyzing their current software and configuration.
Synchronization - GearBox provides critical network services to IoT devices such as Time, IP Management and DNS Services.
Management - GearBox acts as a staging environment for software/firmware upgrades for IoT devices. This substantially improves effectiveness and safety of upgrades.
Security - GearBox is the IoT defined network gateway, providing secure transport and encryption where applicable.
