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.

Tailoring IoT platforms to the requirements of specific use cases

whitePaper | April 13, 2021

The Internet of Things has evolved in the last 10-15 years from a long-term visionary idea to our current reality, present in more and more domains of our everyday lives. Many IoT architectures and platforms are being proposed today by various academic and industrial consortia, in domains as diverse as smart manufacturing, smart homes, smart cities or smart transport, to name just a few. These different IoT platforms have many things in common, as they all rely on connecting some smart sensor and actuator devices to each other and to the Internet, providing value-added services and applications to us, human users, either directly, or in an indirect manner. However, by closely analyzing their structure and operational focus, we can observe that these IoT architectures and platforms have also special features tailored to the requirements of different use cases.

The Rise of Single Pair Ethernet in IIoT

whitePaper | May 12, 2022

Traditionally the networking architectures used within the industrial domain have been many and varied. With its established enterprise IT roots, Ethernet was always going to be the backbone network of choice to link the worlds of operational technology (OT) and information technology (IT) together. However, since the arrival of Industrial IoT (IIoT), connecting all the production assets, such as sensors, actuators, robots, and the myriad of other equipment, typically involved proprietary, vendor-specific networking. The availability of single-pair Ethernet (SPE) looks set to change this legacy approach.
