Robots were just the beginning.

Robots were just the beginning.

The Internet of Things (IoT)—connected devices, sensors, and automated technology—is revolutionizing manufacturing.

BENEFITS OF IOT:

  • Real-time visibility into operations
  • Automated processes boosting efficiency
  • The ability to adapt to business requirements
  • Tighter security and less risk
  • A higher level of safety for employees

Challenges to getting IoT benefits.

IT VERSUS OPS

Traditionally, IT and operations work in silos. IT handles the “computer stuff.” Operations drives production on the manufacturing floor. IoT represents a merging of these two disciplines, calling for a powerful network of devices that can be utilized by operators on the floor.

INSUFFICIENT NETWORK POWER

Factory floors have traditionally been connected through proprietary, vendor-specific networks that can’t handle the complexity of the IoT. The lack of a standard, open network restricts IoT initiatives and constrains business growth, effectively cutting you off from the benefits of the IoT.
