Modern Technologies Enabling the Economic Viability of Data Collection and Centralization
Wired and wireless gateways, delivering the right OT data, can be installed with direct connections to software running in the business and operations networks. In some cases, companies integrate their systems through Internet-based cloud computing. The cybersecurity model is simplified here because of the threat reduction to control and safety systems, given that there is no direct connection to the control and safety networks.
New IIoT gateways include more efficient processors, small-footprint software, and new message queuing protocols that can tolerate limited network bandwidth. This new smart connected ecosystem focuses on delivering actionable information to engineers and managers when and where they need it.
The Importance of Capturing and Sharing Operational Knowledge
With analytical tools and domain expertise, the smart connected device ecosystem is making it possible to address energy, reliability, personnel safety, and environmental problems that have yet to be solved by traditional approaches. It is possible to securely get the right information into the hands of expert problem-solvers wherever at their location.Contact Us
