IoT Solutions
In the near future, billions of pieces of equipment will be connected to one another and massive amounts of data will pouring in. Advanced algorithms, high-powered computing, better connectivity and cloud storage all facilitate the emergence of smart systems. Knowing how to leverage the respective opportunities, however, requires a unique set of skills. Siemens has the engineering, domain and digital know-how to generate performance improvements across the entire value chain, from design to production and operations to maintenance. Digital simulation technology accelerates the plant design, the installation and commissioning as well as the entire product design and production planning process. Multiple components in systems and plants can be intelligently networked to communicate with each other and exchange real-time data. Machine learning makes complex systems more efficient without human intervention. The intelligent analysis of operational data helps identify patterns and predict potential downtimes. Minimum downtimes boost reliability thanks to lifecycle services.
Recent estimates say that there will be over 50 billion connected things in the world by the year 2020. A large percentage of those things will be connected via wireless sensor networks (WSNs). The SmartMesh IP product line achieves unsurpassed levels of networking resilience, reliability, and scalability with advanced network management and comprehensive security. SmartMesh IP includes breakthrough Eterna SoC technology that enables up to 8x lower power consumption than competitive solutions even in harsh, dynamically changing RF environments. Cost effective, IP compatible, and widely applicable, SmartMesh IP serves an extensive range of applications, such as energy management, building automation, renewable energy, and other implementations in smart infrastructure that call for ultra low power.
NXP sees the Internet of Things (IoT) as billions of intelligent connections that will encompass every aspect of our lives and make our world smarter, greener and safer. They believe that the biggest opportunities within the IoT will be in the transformational shift from the computing nexus to highly intelligent nodes - when intelligence massively scales, and the nodes have the power to learn, adapt and communicate. NXP are a market leader in microcontrollers with a broad portfolio of ARM-based MCUs with a low power, high security and small footprint – all ideal for IoT. They are a leader in IoT infrastructure with embedded processors for wired and wireless applications. From the end node to the cloud, NXP provides an unrivaled portfolio for supporting the incredible growth of smart, connected solutions including microcontrollers and microprocessors, security, connectivity, analog and sensors, and RF.
Smart Connected Operations is a future looking vision that describes what the factory or production line of the future will look like. It will involve Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) enabled MOM applications integrated with IIoT enabled assets and IIoT enabled business systems. It is an elemental part of creating the Smart Connected Enterprise and is often where companies have breaks in the strands of the digital thread. In moving towards this vision, both solution providers and manufacturing organizations are going to have to up the game when it comes to investing in IIoT. These investments will include the creation of new organizations that bring together IT, OT, and business leaders, new technologies that enable connectivity, cloud, big data analytics, and the development of new applications, along with the foresight to see that small pilot projects today could transform entire industries tomorrow.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is an expansion of internet use that enables people, machines and elements including workpieces and objects to make use of new technological possibilities. All participants, computers and machines require distinct identification and communicate on the same basis. This makes the exchange of information (identification, addressing, data formats, transfer) standardised and uniform. Established technologies (hardware, software) from the IT domain can thus be used in new domains such as production processes and logistics chains. Rittal is helping many companies participate in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) connectivity to reach Industry 4.0 integration, by adopting the modular structures necessary to help smart factories stay functional.In the Industry 4.0 era, data-controlled equipment and automated systems not only give managers visibility of what’s happening in their enterprises down to individual work cells, but also the power to effect change and avert disasters when necessary. Companies without an Industry 4.0 philosophy are more likely to be forced to deal with the after-effects of outages and miscommunications caused by data disconnects.
We're on the threshold of a new era of innovation with the Industrial Internet. It's the convergence of the global industrial system with the power of advanced computing, analytics, low-cost sensing and new levels of connectivity permitted by the internet. And with it, there's major transformation taking place in the industry. The Industrial Internet changes the game for industrial companies. Pushing machine data to the enterprise level allows businesses to leverage big data to optimize processes and asset performance. Apply predictive analytics to minimize unplanned downtime. Increase throughput, improve product quality and drive resource efficiency. The powerful outcomes—powered by the Industrial Internet—drive transformation.
Information Systems and Technology develops, improves and secures the systems of sophisticated defense, aerospace and communications products.
