What is the Industrial Internet of Things?

Industrial IoT is the amalgamation of the different technologies that exist in the industrial backdrop. The technology list includes the name of machine learning, sensor data, big data, and M2M communication.

Industrial Internet helps in connecting the enterprises by merging all the information and operational department into one of the industries. This helps in improving the visibility level, boosting up the efficiency in the operations, increasing productivity and reducing all the complexity in the procedural work of the industry.

The revolution in the industry field or rather named Industry 4.0 helps in interconnecting all the assets of the industry by the use of the Internet. The smart devices being put in use do not require enough human intervention. It communicated with each other by creating valuable insights. It helps in the asset’s optimization, integrating the production level, monitoring the smart work and diagnosing it remotely. Moreover, they help in making intelligent decisions and work towards predictive maintenance work.

Advantages of Industrial IoT

Industrial IoT comes with several advantages. This could be enumerated below as:

  • It helps with both the predictive and proactive maintenance response.
  • It is related to real-time monitoring work.
  • It helps in the optimization of assets and resources.
  • It fosters the remote diagnosis.

Drivers of IIoT      

There are three drivers of the IIoT which includes:

·         Technology

All the technologies including the Smart Sensors, Augmented or Virtual reality, Robotics, and Automatic, Cloud integration, Mobile, Low power Hardware devices, Big Data Analytics, etc. are considered to be the major drivers of the Industrial Internet.

·         The Behavior of the Customer

This particular technology helps in achieving a higher level of satisfaction. This helps in retaining their customer by adding value and marking an edge over all the competitors,

·         Macro-Economic Drivers

Some of the major decisions influencing the impact of Government policies such as Industry 4.0, Smart Factory, make in India, Support of Green Initiatives, Japans Industrial Value Chain Initiative Forum, favorable FDI policy helps in favor of IIoT evolutions.

Industrial IoT is therefore considered as the transformative strategy to be implemented by the manufacturing unit which helps in improving the quality, productivity and security level in any industry. Therefore, the unfolding of such new technology helps in adding up to an advantage corner for the enterprises.
