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.
JOIN THE WEBINAR TO LEARN:
-How a strong Identity and Root-of-Trust forms the foundation of IoT Security
-How to securely connect systems from the operational domain (OT), to become more accessible to the information technology (IT) domain.
-How to implement end-to-end security from device to cloud
-How 24 IIC Members will demonstrate secure, interoperable IIoT event monitoring at Hannover Messe
Today's computing infrastructure is changing dramatically to support new requirements in design and structure. This is no more evident than in the Internet of Things, where new types of machines driven by vast, complex industrial, distributed systems, can’t operate without connectivity. These new machines will transform our infrastructure into smart freeways, distributed power generation and autonomous driving cars, etc., revolutionizing the workplace and our lives for years to come.
These new IoT systems need data-centric technology that directly addresses real-time systems to explicitly manage the communications “data model.” No matter what application – from financial trading platforms, to medical devices, to smart electrical grids, to exploration and production and to transportation – industries need solutions to find right data then communicates it to its intended destination in a reliable, flexible, fast, and secure manner.

Interoperability at all levels of the IIoT stack is key for the success of industrial IoT projects that require both OT and IT systems to work together. Interoperability, like security, cannot be an afterthought, it needs to be architected in the IIoT solution from the start.
In the webinar we will address key concepts of Interoperability from the device level to the business process application.
"Data Gravity" is a term used to describe the phenomenon in which the quantity and the speed at which services & applications are attracted to data, increases as the mass of that data also increases. Field Service is a major consumer of company master data but also is increasingly a major provider of new data - a trend which is having a profoundly positive impact on other departments such as R&D, sales and finance.
In this session we will discuss new research from Vanson Bourne and examples of companies from the power industry through to medical device manufacturers who are pioneering when it comes to digital transformation and adoption of the IIoT.

Don’t confuse the Internet of Things (IoT) with the Industrial IoT (IIoT), which typically has much more stringent characteristics. That’s because the IIoT usually involves some sort of manufacturing, robotics, or other mission-critical application, where down-time can be measured in dollars, often lots of them. In Day 3 of this three-day class, we’ll look at how to best power your IIoT application, which could include FPGA power and design considerations for high-speed RS-485 data links. The class will use the Intersil PowerCompass tool to help simplify the design. Day 3 sponsored by IntersilRead more >
