FairCom co-sponsors IoT challenge for college students

FairCom is continuing its long history of supporting higher education initiatives as a co-sponsor for the Formel D Challenge. During this contest, network technology students at Faculdade de Informática e Administração Paulista (FIAP) in São Paulo are tasked to develop innovative solutions for the automotive industry, using concepts from smart cities.

FairCom is assisting the students by supplying them with nine Raspberry Pi single-board computers that have the c-treeEDGE IoT Database installed. FairCom experts also provide the college students with insight into the evolution of solutions needed to successfully manage data in IoT, IIoT and edge-computing scenarios.

The students will make the final presentations at the end of the school year. The three best student solutions will be selected by a panel comprised of Formel D professionals and FIAP faculty, with awards being announced during the FIAP NEXT Festival.

Overview, tutorial provide C programmers in-depth info on FairCom’s NAV API

Two new resources are now available in the FairCom online library that give insight into the power of the NAV API for C developers.

NAV API for C Overview: Provides a quick overview of the NAV API.

NAV API for C Tutorial: Details the major functions and level of control available.

The NAV API (formally known as the c-treeDB, ISAM, and Low-level APIs) is a dynamic record-navigation API based on the relational database model. This powerful FairCom tool is an integral part of the engine running the c-treeACE unified multimodel database, c-treeEDGE IoT Database and c-treeRTG data management suite of solutions.

In addition to the overview and tutorial, two white papers provide information about the NAV API and c-treeACE and NAV API and c-treeEDGE.

c-treeEDGE V2 features OPC UA support

c-treeEDGE IoT Database V2, which launched in mid-June, is full of new features that provide organizations with the flexibility they need to manage data on the edge, making it ideal for implementation in Industry 4.0 deployments. Among the enhancements in c-treeEDGE V2 is support for Open Platform Communications Unified Architecture (OPC UA) - a standard communication protocol that ensures interoperability, security, connectivity and reliability for IIoT and edge computing devices and systems.

c-treeEDGE V2 has a OPC UA client that can automatically persist data coming from OPC UA sources. Once the data enters c-treeEDGE, the database can automatically send it to other systems using protocols such as MQTT and database replication. c-treeEDGE also makes it easy for applications to process the data using SQL and for IT systems to extract, transform and load (ETL) data using ODBC and JDBC standard database interfaces.

This unique technology adds genuine business value to OT and IT shops because it greatly reduces the time, effort and technical expertise required to integrate OT with IT. This makes c-treeEDGE V2 a great fit as an Integration Hub for IIoT manufacturing.

Benefits abound with easy            c-treeACE upgrade
For 40 years, FairCom’s c-tree Database Engine has provided customers with uncompromising speed, reliability and capabilities. In fact, FairCom’s database (which started as c-tree and evolved to c-tree Plus and today is c-treeACE) is so reliable that some customers are using versions that date back to the early 1980s. The new versions continue a legacy of reliability and have maintained backwards compatibility to ensure a quick and easy upgrade process.

Why should an organization upgrade when a legacy version of c-tree is working? The answer is simple: By remaining on a legacy version, a company is missing out on important bug fixes, security fixes, security features, performance improvements and support that make the system even more reliable. c-treeACE’s new features provide more value to developers and users at lower cost.
