Do you consider yourself an
Industrial Internet of Things Engineer?

Should you be?

Industrial Internet of Things


Think about what the Internet of Things really means. According to Wikipedia, the Internet of Things “is the network of physical objects or ‘things’ embedded with electronics, software, sensors, and connectivity to enable objects to exchange data with the manufacturer, operator and/or other connected devices...” As an automation industry veteran, that sounds really familiar. We have been connecting intelligent devices to control networks for decades.

The Industrial Internet of Things opens up some interesting new possibilities for automation, so you should begin planning how you can get your system “IIoT Ready”. The good news is that you likely have many pieces in place already – intelligent field devices, industrial networks, perhaps even some Internet Protocol-based infrastructure. Here is some food for thought as you consider how your system can fit into this new world of connected machines.

This presentation will cover the following:

  • M2M and IIoT – put into practical context - Matching up practical needs and buzzwords
  • What to Consider When Starting Your “Industrial Internet of Things” Journey
  • Define your needs now and in the foreseeable future for instance ...
  • Remote Logging, Remote Servicing via Remote Desktop, Remote Servicing via port forwarding, Remote Servicing via data "tunneling" etc.
  • Ease of deployment - a vital part of overall industrial security
  • Security argument for using the customer’s network
  • Tracability & Auditing
  • Dependence of third party cloud services and other HMI applications

These presentations are usually small in numbers so that maximum learning occurs.
