The Hornet is a fast, rugged and scalable data solution that can grow with your company.
The Hornet is 3D-P’s 4th generation of Intelligent Endpoint. This small and extremely rugged computer can be mounted onto nearly any type of mobile equipment to track, gather and process data in real-time even while your fleet is on the move.
The Hornet runs Linux and/or Windows-based applications either natively or within hardware-virtualized Virtual Machines (VMs). At the same time it’s very easy to learn and use.
Built on top of a modular platform, the Hornet allows for upgrades of its processor, memory and storage capabilities, as well as the ability to integrate new radio options as they become available. This makes the Hornet one of the most versatile devices on the market since it can grow and expand with your business or as new technologies emerge.
With blisteringly fast network performance and with its suite of integration and resource sharing tools, the Hornet is the ideal choice for end customers, OEMs, and application vendors looking to satisfy their current and future on-machine computing and communication needs.
The Hornet is a powerful, durable device that won’t let you down.
The Hornet was designed specifically to enable our outdoor industrial customers to access the raw fleet data that is critical to their business.
Designed for direct mounting on heavy equipment, the Hornet can withstand water, temperature, shocks and constant movement in harsh environments.
IP Rating: IP67 (fully protected against dust and water ingress)
Operating temperature: -40 to +75 degrees C.
Adaptable and future-proof – the Hornet works with a variety of platforms, interfaces and technologies.
The Hornet provides access to a wide variety of applications and interfaces critical to your business. When it’s time to upgrade your radio network, you can be confident the Hornet will be able to adapt. The Hornet includes multiple radio options, including dual radio, while also providing the ability to migrate to new radio technologies as they become available, making it future-proof.
Reduce the strain on your network automatically.
The Hornet Intelligent Endpoint’s open computing design and the on-board IEP-Suite of tools puts the ‘smart’ in the smart Internet of Things (IoT). These capabilities are crucial to obtaining valuable data from connected IoT devices in a mobile, wireless environment.
Running at the edge of your network or in distant and challenging environments can mean intermittent connections and sometimes higher costs. Not with 3D-P’s edge computing solutions using the Hornet.
The Hornet enables applications to perform computing functions on the mobile fleet, prior to accessing the wireless network, thus reducing the network load. That means you’ll get increased network capability and reduced network costs.
How does it work? With smart capabilities, the Hornet can prioritize data downloads by application, it can allow them only in specific geo-fenced areas or at specified times, or it can be set to utilize only a portion of the available bandwidth per application, helping to reduce and manage the load on the entire wireless network.
Through a number of partnerships with asset health solution providers, the Hornet has the ability to provide you with your fleet’s raw asset health data, and communicate it where and when your business needs it.
The Hornet also provides hosting of native and third party applications enabling edge computing and analytics.
