Connectivity: The Key to IoT Data Communications
Unlocking Interoperability via the Industrial Internet Connectivity Framework
From a practical viewpoint, IIoT components and subsystems are built at different times, by different teams, and in different places. In order to interoperate, they need to be able to communicate meaningfully. In order to communicate, the underlying connectivity infrastructure must facilitate the exchange of information between the participants.
The Industrial Internet Connectivity Framework (IICF) is a comprehensive resource for understanding Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) connectivity considerations. Developed by international connectivity experts, the IICF defines the minimum expectations required to build next generation IIoT systems with syntactic interoperability between components and subsystems.
An ACG Analysis, Research Brief and Webinar Developed in Partnership with RCR Wireless. Concurrent innovations in 5G radio access and in network control and application delivery using virtualization and the cloud at multiple layers of the ‘stack’ will bring services to market not feasible in the past. This fortunate combination makes the arrival of 5G especially inspiring. Evaluating several of the more impactful new radio access innovations, the way they benefit from virtualization and the cloud in managing the network and and delivering new applications, and examining the benefits these enhancements bring to stakeholders in the 5G and IIoT ecosystems is the focus of this research.
One area of innovations in 5G and IIoT is to support a massive scale of connectivity for ‘things’ for commercial and industrial use. In many cases use of low power access technologies such as LoRa is integral to supporting new applications at scale. In other cases innovative data distribution mechanisms such as Coordinated Multi-Point communications (or CoMP) to support the use of diverse types of end-stations are crucial to bringing the versatility, efficiency and scale to IIoT that some applications need. In parallel support for highly reliable and ultra-low latency communication for applications in transportation, health care, public safety and other vertical sectors will harness new frequency bands and transmission management techniques to accomplish their functions.
This research brief and webinar from ACG Research will examine the symbiosis between 5G radio access innovations and the technologies of virtualization and the cloud for delivering IIoT at scale in ways that have not been possible in the past.
What is your first line of defense against cyberattacks? Secure endpoints! Endpoints are everywhere in the IIoT landscape. Without proper security, Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) systems are not trustworthy, putting organizations, their missions and the greater public at increased risk. The viability of the IIoT depends on proper implementation of security to counter the growing and ever changing threats that are emerging.
On February 22, 2017, editors of the IISF and security experts from the Industrial Internet Consortium will discuss the endpoint protection/security model and policy in its Industrial Internet Security Framework (IISF) document and present a real-world customer use case for an approach taken to secure an industrial system.
Industrial Internet Security in Action --
Interoperable IIoT Security Event Monitoring
(Inlcuding a preview of security interop demo at Hannover Messe)
With the rise of the Industrial Internet of Things and Industrie 4.0, manufacturers are adding more connected devices and sharing operation data with IT systems within their own factories and businesses, and they are extending information exchange across their entire value chain. This increased digitization offers a host of benefits to businesses, partners, suppliers and customers. But such connectivity must not itself put sensitive equipment at risk. Security is important within a single manufacturers’ plants, and across every participant in the value chain. Since there is no single, homogeneous security environment, multiple companies and systems that need to work together.

When working with sensor data, many organizations have to wait weeks for Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) to be reprogrammed. What if you could run quick Proof-of-Concepts using commoditized sensors for ad-hoc monitoring to determine telemetry impacts from environmental changes such as light, moisture, temperature, and wind speed among others? Then once more information has been collected, process changes can be identified providing solid operational solutions based on factual data to issues at hand.
Integrationworx's Machine 360 offers exactly that. Machine 360 provides real-time equipment performance monitoring and downstream analytics based on sensor data.
Join us to learn more about Machine 360.
