IIoT & Industrial Networking

High Res Main Graphic

Industrial IoT (IIoT) refers to using connected devices, sensors, and other digital technologies to improve industrial processes and operations. IIoT enables real-time data collection and analysis, remote monitoring and control, predictive maintenance, and other efficiencies that can lead to cost savings and improved productivity in industrial settings.

Industrial Networking - the communication backbone

IIoT technologies include sensors that collect data about equipment performance and environmental conditions, connectivity technologies such as wireless networks and protocols like MQTT and OPC UA that enable data transmission, cloud platforms that store and process data, and analytics tools that can provide insights and enable predictive maintenance.

IIoT can be applied in a wide range of industries, from manufacturing and logistics to energy and transportation, to improve efficiency, reduce costs, and enhance safety and security.

Industrial networking, on the other hand, is the communication backbone that allows the connected devices and systems to share data and information. Industrial networks are designed to provide secure, reliable, and high-speed communication between machines, sensors, controllers, and other industrial equipment. These networks can use a variety of protocols and technologies, such as Ethernet, Modbus, Profinet, and others, depending on the specific application and requirements.
