Bit Stew Systems Unveils MIx Core 8.0 Designed to Power Machine Intelligence for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)

Mountian View, CA (PRWEB) July 22, 2014

Bit Stew Systems Inc., a world-leading provider of integrated, real-time network operations for the utility industry, unveils an application processing engine specifically designed to enable machine intelligence for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).

MIx Core, the engine that powers the popular Grid Director platform, incorporates leading edge technology that delivers adaptive stream computing, complex event processing, high-speed data analytics, and sophisticated machine-to-machine learning. This application processing engine efficiently and effectively scales from embedded devices on the edge of communications networks through to cloud computing.

Kevin Collins, CEO of Bit Stew Systems says, MIx Core is the heart of the technology behind the Grid Director platform. Bit Stew has been perfecting the MIx Core technology for several years and this version will incorporate a sophisticated data streaming and data parallelization processor that brings a whole new level of intelligence for our customers.

Kevin adds, This latest innovation by our company significantly improves performance for visualization frameworks and the intelligent filtering of massive amounts of data in real-time from connected devices on the Industrial Internet.

Harnessing Ciscos IOx platform

Bit Stews MIx Core harnesses Ciscos IOx platform and successfully operates on a number of Cisco hardware devices including the Connected Grid Router (CGR). MIx Core enables Grid Director to run at the edge of the network and is a significant advantage for organizations that are dealing with complex communication networks that support substation automation, distribution automation and distributed energy resources. Cisco is promoting IOx as part of its Fog strategy for computing at the edge of the network. With Grid Director embedded inside the devices, organizations can directly enable intelligent features that drive instant value for the market.

Kip Compton, Vice President Internet of Things (IoT) Systems & Software group at Cisco, says, “I am pleased to see how Bit Stew has taken full advantage of Cisco Fog computing and the IOx solution. Bit Stews innovative Grid Director platform is connecting millions of devices on a massive scale to provide data analysis at the edge in real-time.”

Real-time capabilities from the edge to the cloud

MIx Core offers real-time capabilities at the edge while allowing the edge devices to collaborate and participate in the cloud-computing arena. As a full participant in the network, MIx Core enabled devices can quickly search, correlate and aggregate information from a wide variety of sources across the network as well as handle distribution of massive processing loads in a safe and secure environment. This provides organizations with full control over the environment while ensuring that edge devices are seamlessly managed and can receive on-demand updates to processing logic.
