An introduction to IIoT; The future of manufacturing
The next wave of the Internet will connect machines and devices together into functioning, intelligent systems. These interconnected devices — the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) — will work together with unprecedented speed, scale and capabilities
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is the part of the Internet of Things (IoT) that focuses on how smart machines, networked sensors and sensor analytics can help improve business-to-business (B2B) initiatives across a wide variety of industries, especially manufacturing. Also known as the Industrial Internet, IIoT seeks to make better use of the sensor data, machine-to-machine (M2M) communication, machine learning and automation technologies that have existed in industrial settings for years.
The transformation that IIoT will convey
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) will transform companies and countries, opening up a new era of economic growth and competitiveness. We see a future where the intersection of people, data and intelligent machines will have far-reaching impacts on the productivity, efficiency and operations of industries around the world.
The Internet revolution has redefined business to-consumer (B2C) industries such as media, retail and financial services. In the next 10 years, the Internet of Things revolution will dramatically alter manufacturing, energy, agriculture, transportation and other industrial sectors of the economy which, together, account for nearly two-thirds of the global gross domestic product (GDP). It will also fundamentally transform how people will work through new interactions between humans and machines.
The driving philosophy behind the IIoT
The driving philosophy behind the IIoT is that smart machines are better than humans at accurately, consistently capturing and communicating data. This data can enable companies to pick up on inefficiencies and problems sooner, saving time and money and supporting business intelligence efforts. In manufacturing specifically, IIoT holds great potential for quality control, sustainable and green practices, supply chain trace ability and overall supply chain efficiency.
The Rewards abound with networked devices
The manufacturing industry — like many other industries — stands to gain a lot from the growth of networked devices and the Internet of Things (IoT). Networked devices offer a plethora of information for manufacturers, and this information can lead to improvements in the maintenance of machines and many other aspects of an organization.
