SAN ANTONIO, Sept. 20, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Based on its recent analysis of the industrial internet of things (IIoT) edge control solutions industry, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Opto 22 with the 2022 Global Enabling Technology Leadership Award. Opto 22 is a leading developer and producer of advanced products for industrial automation and IIoT solutions that integrate industrial devices into networks and computers.

“The groov technology can solve one of the most challenging aspects of IIoT: How to collect data from the edge of the network and make it available to the software that consumes it and people that use it, overcoming the intrinsic complexity, security, integrity, and cost issues,” said Samantha Fisher, Best Practices Research Analyst at Frost & Sullivan. “Frost & Sullivan believes the company is well-positioned to drive the IIoT edge control solutions space into its next growth phase, capturing market share and sustaining its leadership in the coming years.”

Additionally, based on its customer-centric philosophy, Opto 22 understands its success depends on customer satisfaction. This core belief drives the company’s business practices on a day-to-day basis, delivering seamless transparency across the entire customer journey to stand out from its closest competitors.
