To achieve the full benefits of IIoT edge, providers must focus on the customer's specific use case, according to a panel of experts from IOTech, Eaton, Mitsubishi Power, and Schneider Electric
EDINBURGH, Scotland - May 25, 2022 - PRLog -- The benefits of an Industrial IoT edge solution range from helping an enterprise achieve maximum profitability and uncover new revenue opportunities, to reducing energy consumption, and ensuring a level of quality. A panel of Industrial IoT experts from IOTech, Eaton, Mitsubishi Power, and Schneider Electric recently discussed these benefits, innovation success and challenges in IIoT edge computing systems during a recent webinar.
Coordinated by IOTech and moderated by company CTO Jim White, the webinar brought together Industrial IoT leaders to discuss how industrial sector companies and OEMs are producing real world edge solutions to disrupt the marketplace, create new revenue streams, save precious resources, and lead their sectors in innovation.
Key insights delivered during the session included:
- The industry is now entering a phase where IoT is actually creating savings for enterprises, specifically related to maintenance and reducing the downtime of assets
- The ability to analyze data at the edge combined with machine learning is creating new predictive maintenance opportunities, which ensures a level of quality for enterprises
- With a clear return on investment, Industrial IoT has moved from proof-of-concept to full scale deployment
- Security remains a focus, but it is now managed as part of the development and product life cycle. It's an ongoing process to maintain the required level of security
Predictive maintenance, energy consumption, standards of quality, new revenue sources and optimized profits were a few of the items discussed. Panel members reiterated that the key to any successful IoT edge deployment is to focus on the customer's use case.
"It's all about focusing on the problem the customer is trying to solve or the performance the customer is trying to achieve," White said.
Some of the challenges discussed by the panel of experts included brownfield deployments, legacy equipment and protocols, heterogeneous systems, and the cloud-edge relationship.
