Now more than ever, manufacturers are integrating new technologies, such as IoT, cloud computing and analytics, and AI and machine learning into their production facilities and operations.
While laser cutting has many advantages, it can also be challenging to implement. High initial costs, safety concerns and the need for specialized training can stop manufacturers without the necessary funds and experience from capitalizing on its potential.
Introducing simple and effective technologies in the right ways can enable manufacturers to get more from their existing operations while also attracting and retaining talent for the long term.
Smart modules are a further piece in the IoT puzzle that simplifies and speeds up deployments. By providing the ability to perform multiple tasks in a single module, the need to develop and then integrate function-specific modules into an IoT device is reduced.
One factor that can complicate an IoT application is the crowding that may occur when many connected devices occupy the same area. To help corral all of these signals, many organizations opt to deploy Bluetooth gateways to help connect their IoT devices to the cloud.
By answering some basic questions on IoT security and pointing you to other resources on how to minimize your IoT cybersecurity risk, this will help you better understand what a robust IoT security strategy looks like.
Developing nations are integrating more into the world economy, but lack certain advantages, like Internet of Things (IoT) infrastructure, to compete at a global level.
5G networks are opening new opportunities to manufacturers including speeding-up the IoT with faster data transfer rates and more efficient connections and communication between devices. Therefore, 5G will be key to the growth of the IoT in 2022.
Manufacturers need to prioritize technologies such as 5G and IoT as they continue to develop and become more available throughout the organization in order to streamline their operations and survive In our digital-first future.
A challenge lies in that fact that every single smart device connected to the IoT generates huge amounts of data. All of this information must be processed and analyzed to successfully take advantage of the opportunities presented by Industry 4.0.
More devices mean more data and more information. But there is a catch! Data in itself is not helpful until used in the right context. In order to gain that context, you must ask the right questions from the data.
While the IoT has shown incredible promise within the corporate and consumer environment, the true value of the IoT can be found in the industrial space, which has aptly become known as the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).
When attached to shipment containers, the IoT affords manufacturers insight into what's happening at each point of the supply chain, thereby assuring their products reach their destinations in a safe and timely manner.
Iota has developed a framework called the Sustainability Process Blueprint that allows businesses to easily monitor, measure, and curate data pertaining to their sustainability performance.
For manufacturers, it is a boon these days that they can integrate their ERP system with machines. Thanks to the internet of things (IoT), it is not only easy to integrate but also a practical solution to all problems of the system.
