At the centre of the solution is ADLINK’s cognitive gateway. Optimised for OT environments, these gateways gather data from sensors in the factory and perform on-the-spot analytics.read more
Fourth Industrial Revolution
The Fourth Industrial Revolution represents a transformational time for the manufacturing industry. Those who deploy the right technology to capitalise on smart factories and the Industrial IoT (IIoT) will reap huge financial rewards and lead a lucrative generation of automated industrial processes. But these advances are dependent upon collaboration – no single organisation can deliver the benefits of IIoT alone.
That is why computing juggernaut Intel has partnered with technology leaders like ADLINK, Dell, and SAS. Together these companies are powering smart factories with solutions that generate value from industrial data.
New Internet of Things solutions are helping manufacturers improve product quality, increase productivity, decrease costs, and make smarter business decisions.read more
Today’s factories are full of legacy machines and sensors that are not connected, managed or secured. As a result, a lot of useful data remains inaccessible and locked away.read more
The very connectedness of the IIoT elevates security considerations for all involved. Well-designed security solutions can provide end-to-end protection across a manufacturer’s entire IoT platform, creating a chain of trust from thing to network to cloud.read more
By combining a clear business plan with streaming analytics, organisations can optimise their internal operations and identify growth opportunities.read more
Scalability is one of the key requirements for an IIoT solution. Data and computing requirements tend to expand over time, so manufacturers should look for an analytics architecture that can scale and can distribute the analytics load between the edge and the cloud.read more
IIoT-based predictive maintenance is made possible in part because of edge computing, in which most data is analysed at the network edge and only necessary data is transmitted to the cloud or data centre.read more
Predictive maintenance solutions based on the Industrial Internet of Things and edge computing help manufacturers reduce downtime, improve equipment effectiveness, lower maintenance costs, and increase return on assets.read more
Like every business investment, return on investment (ROI) must be considered at all times when deploying a smart factory. The ability to prove ROI comes through intelligently connecting old machines and accessing trapped data – then utilising it with edge analytics and making the machines work autonomously.read more
