Flexible Building Blocks for the Industrial Internet of Things
The Fourth Industrial Revolution, or Industry 4.0, brings digital and physical technologies together to create responsive, interconnected operations. From the supply chain to the smart factory, enterprises are using AI, robotics, edge computing, and the cloud to make informed, timely decisions. Solutions designed for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) use connected sensors and edge devices to help improve product quality and factory operational efficiency in real time.
Intel provides secure and scalable building blocks for industrial IoT solutions that bring intelligence to your operating assets and reveal insights from data. Built on open, standards-based solutions, Intel’s extensive ecosystem lets you choose the best-of-breed applications with confidence. The results: potentially lower maintenance costs, new business opportunities, and incredible productivity.
Frequently Asked Questions
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) relies upon a diverse set of technologies to connect industrial equipment and systems so that data can be collected and analyzed. By adding compute to industrial endpoints, data can be processed at the edge, enabling near-real-time analytics and workloads like machine vision. Edge computing can also support production control, manageability, and security.
IIoT technologies are used for a vast range of applications across industrial sectors. These solutions enable equipment monitoring, predictive maintenance, quality monitoring and defect detection, behavior and production monitoring, and much more.
By adopting IIoT technologies, businesses can create smart factories, automate shipment tracking, improve worker safety, build smart grids, reduce energy consumption, and more. Many IIoT solutions are designed with the ultimate goal of reducing operational costs and enhancing productivity.
