Edge Computing with OAS Distributed Network Architecture

Cost-effective Licensing

OAS licensing is based on three simple factors:

  1. The number of tags you need to connect to
  2. The number of OAS products needed to connect your data sources
  3. Whether you need a networked or stand-alone system

You can deploy unlimited client applications for each Distributed Network Architecture enabled server.
