A global IoT device provider’s applications engineer uses Node-RED to develop reference designs for their customers in the industrial and manufacturing sector. Since Node-RED is easy to use, the engineer can quickly build reference design demos for customers. However, scaling up reference designs from a few devices to hundreds or thousands of devices is not possible because Node-RED needs to be installed and updated on a per-device basis. For this reason, customers today have to redesign the solution in a traditional IoT development framework which requires coding, containers, CI/CD, and maintenance of a complex cloud environment. This often stalls customer adoption.


Being familiar with Node-RED, the applications engineer was able to import their reference design into Prescient Designer within one-hour. This included incorporating the edge device application they had previously developed. The applications engineer then enhanced the solution with cloud-based analytics and dashboard within one-week. The applications engineer then shared the solution with the customer remotely via Prescient Designer, and they were able to discuss and improve the solution in real-time. Finally, the applications engineers scaled the project to a facility containing 90 edge devices with just a few clicks.


By using Prescient Designer, the IoT device provider helped the customer to deploy an enterprise-class IoT solution quickly. This accelerated time-to-market, increased sales, and improved customer satisfaction. Prescient Designer ensured the customer with an agile and scalable solution, and it helped the IoT device provider to sell faster and sell more.


What is Node-RED?

Node-RED is a programming tool for wiring together hardware devices, APIs and online services in new and interesting ways.

It provides a browser-based editor that makes it easy to wire together flows using the wide range of nodes in the palette that can be deployed to its runtime in a single-click.
