Frost & Sullivan awards Losant with ...

Business consulting giant Frost & Sullivan has awarded Losant an innovation leadership award.

The award is for Losant’s Embedded Edge Agent (EEA), which the company spent two years of R&D creating. Losant’s IoT platform features both the EEA and a Gateway Edge Agent (GEA). GEA requires far more computing power – including 512MB of memory – but exposes more functionality. GEA is typically installed on an industrial gateway or modern computer in a private network. In contrast, EEA has minimal hardware requirements. Requiring just 2MB of memory, EEA is typically integrated into embedded hardware deep within a larger system.
