Lacon hosts Advantech CTO
The world market leader for embedded computing, industrial automation & connectivity, Advantech, together with the Lacon Group, is preparing the integration of electronic systems into a comprehensive IoT cloud system. CTO Dr Allan Yang from Taipei, Taiwan, visited CEO Dr Ralf Hasler at Lacon’s headquarters in Karlsfeld. Lacon is a VIP partner of the global WISE-PaaS marketplace of Advantech, which combines AIoT edge-to-cloud architecture, embedded hardware and software services on the internet of things.
As a so-called domain focused system integrator, the Lacon Group will make industrial products IoT-capable and integrate them into a comprehensive cloud solution.
As an ODM (Original Design Manufacturer), together with Advantech, Lacon provides the complete service portfolio for development, industrialisation and IoT integration.
With the goal of realising unique IoT projects together, Lacon was awarded "Advantech WISE-PaaS VIP Certification" and, as the only full-service EMS provider to date, and with the possibility of providing a complete IoT ecosystem, Lacon takes on an exclusive role at Advantech. WISE-PaaS stands for wireless IoT service embedded platform as a service and allows the virtualisation of the latest electronics generation.
“The digitalisation route undoubtedly leads to the cloud via intelligent IoT products We are seeing an impressive paradigm change in key industries, which will make around half of all industrial products “smart” within a short time frame of up to 5 years and will require active cloud integration”, Hasler feels certain.
Both executives see themselves as IoT sense innovators and in a fruitful dialogue, they agreed the further steps in the EMS smart integration process.
