SinclairWhat is the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)?

Paine:  IIoT sets its sights on Internet-enabling all hardware and software components (the “Things”) that comprise an automation system. This will allow for smarter automation where Things can share information, learn about their surroundings, and auto-tune themselves to achieve optimum throughput and minimal downtime.

SinclairWhat are the biggest challenges facing the IIoT?

Paine:  At Kepware we believe the following are the biggest challenges facing the IIoT:

SinclairSo how can companies alleviate some of these challenges?

Control Solutions, Inc Paine:  In order to alleviate some of the preceding challenges, IIoT strategies will focus on pushing data into a centralized cloud platform. This platform and its corresponding services will be administered by IT experts familiar with the managed world of IP and made available to anyone with the proper credentials and an Internet connection. Leveraging the power of cloud computing and its multitudinous resources will make the required storage and processing power available to handle the zettabytes of data that will be collected, analyzed, and archived. Furthermore, the overall uptime of these platforms continues to trend upwards as they become more resilient to the increasing demand and expectations of our connected world.

Sinclair What do you see as a solution?

Paine:  In order to seamlessly integrate industrial data into IIoT, a new communications platform is required. This platform requires extensive knowledge of the intricate realm of OT and the state-of-the-art and rapidly-changing domain of IT.
