The IoT is a network of intelligent computers, devices, and objects that collect and share huge amounts of data. The collected data is sent to a central Cloud-based service where it is aggregated with other data and then shared with end users in a helpful way.
The IIoT is part of the IoT and has become increasingly more pervasive in the context of industry as digitization has become a business priority for many organizations.
The Industrial Internet of Things brings together machines, analytics, and people at work. It’s the network of a multitude of devices connected by communications technologies that results in systems that can monitor, collect, exchange, analyze, and deliver valuable new insights like never before. These insights can then help drive smarter, faster business decisions for industrial companies. The IIoT will revolutionize manufacturing by enabling the acquisition and accessibility of far greater amounts of data, at far greater speeds, and far more efficiently than before. A number of innovative companies have started to implement the IIoT by leveraging intelligent, connected devices in their factories.
The IIoT can greatly improve connectivity, efficiency, scalability, time savings, and cost savings for industrial organizations. Companies are already benefitting from the IIoT through cost savings due to predictive maintenance, improved safety, and other operational efficiencies. IIoT networks of intelligent devices allow industrial organizations to break open data silos and connect all of their people, data, and processes from the factory floor to the executive offices. Business leaders can use IIoT data to get a full and accurate view of how their enterprise is doing, which will help them make better decisions.
The IIoT is widely considered to be a significant trend affecting industrial businesses today. Industries are pushing to modernize systems and equipment to keep up with increasing market speed and volatility. Businesses that have embraced the IIoT have seen significant improvements to safety, efficiency, and profitability.
IIoT is driving unprecedented levels of efficiency, productivity, and performance. Industrial companies in power and energy, oil and gas, manufacturing, healthcare, aviation, and many other industries are experiencing transformative operational and financial benefits.
There is such great potential for the Industrial Internet to change the way industry works. GE Digital predicts the benefits to the global economy through the IIoT will be:
Today, low cost overlays of wirelessly enabled, and cloud connected secure mesh networks can address a widening array of environments quickly and cheaply. Delphian Systems offers SecuRemote, a method to incorporate IIOT into existing machines, factories, and work cells addressing core safety paradigms like access control, operator audit trail, and machine on-time/maintenance (LOTO). Delphian’s industrial automation expertise starts with our partner company Wes-Tech Automation, a company with a track record of delivering sophisticated industrial automation systems to large OEMs.
