Industrial IoT Systems - The Promise And The Practice
Santa Clara Convention Center, CA, USA
Grand Ballroom A
10:00 - 10:20
Industrial IoT systems have unique characteristics compared to IoT deployments in consumer, retail, and other domains. These unique characteristics impact not only the design of Industrial IoT systems, but also the way that return on investment and cost/benefit decisions are made. At the same time, Industrial IoT and Industry 4.0 has shown some of the greatest promise for IoT benefit in terms of increases in machine efficiency, longer life, and lower downtime rates. Ed will discuss how Industrial IoT systems differ in their design due to their environmental and communication differences, and how the whole business model of an industrial IoT system differs from a consumer or retail IoT system. Also he will discuss recent advances in fog based (on-prem) processing and machine learning, and how that can improve machine efficiency and utilization and reduce downtime.
