Course 6: Edge Compute

This course details the Losant Gateway Edge Agent (GEA). The GEA is a command-line utility exposed through Docker as a container you can run on your Edge Compute device.

Chapter 1: Installing the Gateway Edge Agent

This video is all about the GEA. Edge Workflows run on your own gateway hardware and are executed by the GEA. So, the very first thing you need to do before you can deploy an Edge Workflow, is install and configure the edge agent. That’s what we are going to talk about in this video.

Chapter 2: Using the Gateway Edge Agent

In the last video, we installed the GEA and talked a little bit about Docker and overall how the agent works. In this video, we are going to actually use it.

Chapter 3: Edge Nodes

In this video, let’s talk about some of the nodes that are special in an Edge Workflow and how these nodes are used.


The purpose of this workshop is to get your hands dirty with the GEA. In the course, we installed the agent, reviewed usage, and covered some of the edge-specific nodes. Now, let’s put some of that to use in our example.
