Global Industry Standards for Industrial IoT

June 2, 2021

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is a rapidly expanding world of connected objects. As IIoT systems proliferate, large amounts of data are consumed by machine learning algorithms and shared between partners, customers and others. IIoT is a technology environment in which integration and interoperability are critical capabilities and the complexity of this environment makes this difficult to achieve. Standards play a critical role in IIoT for five main reasons.

First, users and vendors cannot engineer a custom interface every time components or systems need to interact. Standards can make this explosion of interfaces manageable; they are the lingua franca for interoperability. For suppliers, this eliminates needless costs related to common capabilities instead encouraging a focus on innovations that add value.

Securing Devices in Advanced Metering Infrastructures

whitePaper | January 8, 2020

Smart grid managers and Head End System (HES) vendors depend on data to drive their business. Receiving and analyzing accurate data from grid endpoints - the smart meters - is the main element that determines business success. Their customers, Distribution System Operators (DSOs) and Advanced Metering Infrastructures (AMI) managers, then use this data for crucial processes: monitoring energy demand and production, load shifting to maintain a persistent grid balance at all times and billing customers. Each tiny bit of data is the starting point for monetization and asset management and it must be accurate and trusted in order to keep power flowing.
