The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) refers to the scale out of intelligent sensors, assets, and devices on the industrial operations network. Collecting new types of data from remote assets is simpler and more economically feasible than ever due to:
• Innovative sensor technology
• Ubiquitous network connectivity
• Falling compute and storage costs
These factors enable you to better understand asset health, improve asset performance, and increase asset and worker safety.
“I've been hearing a lot about this Internet of Things. This is a good example of that...putting out these low-cost sensors, incorporating them into the PI System.”
— Cameron Sherding, Sr. Software Engineer, DTE
The sheer volume and dynamic nature of IIoT data can exceed the capabilities of existing data management systems.
As the number of sensors and data sources grows, the need for integrations with specific industrial protocols also grows.
Maintaining an accurate and consistent data footprint for cheaper devices and sensors requires significant investment.
“The OSIsoft connector allows us to be able to search for all the servers that are on a particular network, automatically bring them in and have the data populated in an automated way.”
— Tyler Duncan, Principal Thermal and Controls Engineer, Dell EMC
Today's Industrial IoT solutions can solve operational and business problems that have hampered companies for years. The key to success is to implement IoT data analytics approaches that complement and integrate into your existing systems seamlessly.
Your success in IIoT requires teamwork. OSIsoft Partners are ready to contribute their expertise and services to help you implement your IIoT solutions.
