IIC x IoT ONE IIoT Spotlight Podcast EP039: How to ensure connectivity for brownfield sensors - An Interview with Michael Hilgner of TE Connectivity
*This episode of the Industrial IoT Spotlight Podcast is sponsored by the Industrial Internet Consortium
We discuss the IIC test bed for smart manufacturing connectivity for brownfield sensors.
What are the key challenges to implementing IoT sensors and technologies in brownfield environments? How can we ensure that all technologies and business processes have interoperability with each other? How will communication standards evolve in the industry in the future?
Michael Hilgner of TE Connectivity explains to us the challenges and best practices of implementing connected sensors in a brownfield environment.
Dr. Michael Hilgner has engaged himself in communication infrastructure and high-frequency components design in diverse roles throughout his career. In his current role as Manager Consortia & Standards at TE Connectivity’s Industrial Business Unit, he provides his experience to international standardization activities and industrial user groups in the areas of industrial networks, fieldbuses and cabling systems. In addition to his engagement at IIC where he leads the Smart Manufacturing Connectivity for Brown-field Sensors Testbed, Michael contributes to several Industrie 4.0 working groups to detail I4.0 requirements and technologies for active and passive infrastructure components.
