Industrial IoT (IIoT) is being championed as the next pillar of the Industrial Revolution, going by the name of the Fourth Industrial Revolution or Industry 4.0. The ability to collect data from hundreds upon thousands of endpoints and transforming that data into action and results is going to bring about myriad benefits to manufacturing.
One of the key distinctions in Industry 4.0 is Big Data versus intelligent data. Being able to take data collected and turning it into a solution is how IoT solutions earn their ROI. When built and optimized properly, IIoT can mitigate some of the largest hurdles in manufacturing.
One way to future-proof existing digital operations or adding IIoT is to move from a Wi-Fi or LAN-based approach to cellular. Cellular connectivity for manufacturing has multiple benefits:
Leveraging cellular connectivity is an affordable way to help mitigate hidden costs from IT support and infrastructure, network downtime, and security intrusions. Security, in particular, is becoming a bigger threat to manufacturers.
According to the IBM X-Force Intelligence Index 2021, manufacturing has moved up to the second most-attacked industry in 2020 – up from the eighth slot – and second only to the financial industry. The report states that the main attack method was ransomware.
Implementing new technology can create hurdles, especially when it comes to manufacturing, which has an extremely low tolerance for downtime. Several distinct hurdles crop up when transitioning to Industry 4.0.
