IT/OT Convergence – The Impact from the Industrial Internet of Things

Without question, the number of connected sensors and devices on your IIoT network are going to increase, and also without question, the volume of data created by these devices on your IIoT network are going to increase as well. Both increases are intended to improve operational efficiency and streamline business processes. As a result, your Information Technology (IT) […]

Network Management Solutions for IIoT

The shift towards digital technology solutions and the rise of the industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) have transformed operations for many organizations. Currently, there are a number of wireless communication solutions available that are specifically designed for IIoT, M2M and SCADA networks. These technologies monitor, collect and transfer critical data in challenging environments to support […]

Seismic Shift in IIoT Monitoring

There’s been a seismic shift in monitoring earthquakes via the  Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) with advanced Machine-to-Machine (M2M) technology have reshaped the industrial communication industry. Every device or machine along the network, even at the outermost edge, now has the opportunity to be fully-connected for automated collection and delivery of information. As Sensor-2-Server (S2S) […]

IIoT + S2S = Industrial Innovation at the Access Layer

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is moving at a rapid pace towards a higher intelligence platform to help collect, protect, transport and control data at scale from a myriad of sources. The access layer in the IT landscape is now particularly becoming an innovative technology environment with many new sensory solutions available to bring intelligence back to the […]

Difference Between Data Sheet Transmit Power & Data Stream Transmit Power

So, you consider using industrial Wi-Fi Access Points to implement this short-haul, point-to-point (PTP) RF link between […]

Sensor-2-Server (S2S): Implementing IIoT Communications

*This is part of a series of blogs examining Sensor-2-Server (S2S) communications, development and implementation. Last week, in part one of our series, we worked to define Sensor-2-Server (S2S) for IIoT communications, the access layer, and high-level applications. This week, we’re looking at the actual implementation of S2S communication systems. Implementing S2S Communications When implementing S2S networks, […]

IIoT Top News: The Future of Utilities

As utility companies continue to track usage, consumers are growing equally cognizant of individual energy use as well, especially with the growth of private alternative energy practices such as home solar panels or wind power. That’s why this week’s IIoT top news is focused on the utility technology of tomorrow. This practice of selling privately […]

Solving The Challenges of Remote Wi-Fi in the Industrial Internet of Things

Most of us can relate to the frustration of when the Wi-Fi is down, or running slowly, or if we travel away from an established network and aren’t able to connect to another one nearby.  The lack of Wi-Fi makes it impossible to check our emails, look up something on the internet, connect with others, […]

IIoT Top News: 2015 News Round-Up

Let’s take a moment and appreciate the excitement 2015 brought for the IIoT: As we look back at the top articles from the year, we were intrigued to learn that cooperative utilities actually have the largest penetration of smart grid meters per percentage of customers, according to Greentech Media and the U.S. Energy Information Administration. It’s […]

IIoT Bold Prediction Series Part 4: New Networking Protocol Changes IoT Connectivity

Before we move on to the next prediction in our IIoT Predictions series, let’s take a quick look back at the first three: A major security breach of an industrial SCADA system will bring new focus to IoT security. The government will become heavily involved in the regulation of IoT and IIoT devices. Predictive analytics […]
