IIoT FAQs

Click below for answers to some frequently asked questions.

What is the difference between IoT and IIoT?
First, the IoT and IIoT are both part of what’s called Industry 4.0. Since the industrial revolution began in the late 1700’s, there have been four iterations of industrial transformation.

Industry 1.0 was marked by the transition of hand production to the use of steam powered machines. Then, in the late 1800’s, Industry 2.0 included technologies such as the telegraph and electricity.

Next, Industry 3.0 occurred during the second half of the 20th century. It saw the creation of digital advancements like widespread computer use. Finally, Industry 4.0 is the current stage of industrial transformation and includes connected devices and cloud computing.

 
Both the IoT and the IIoT connect physical objects to collect data. But the Internet of Things (IoT) refers to internet-connected consumer devices.
 
For example, billions of devices are IoT connected. These IoT devices include phones, fitness trackers, or even some smart home appliances add connectivity.
 
Also, some smart cities are coming on-line. These cities are using sensors to collect data. In turn, the data is used to efficiently manage assets and resources.
 
In contrast, the IIoT refers to the Industrial Internet of Things which focuses on industrial applications. Connected machines and systems provide vast amounts of data.
 
The purpose is to improve business outcomes. Namely, IIoT technologies improve connectivity and efficiency or add time or cost savings.  These can include sensors or intelligent machines used to gain data analytics. 
How is IIoT transforming the supply chain?
 
Many factors present challenges to today’s complex supply chains. For example, theft, IT failures and more can work to undermine production and raise costs. But, the addition of control systems through the IIoT can curtail these risks.
 
IIoT connected devices generate large amounts of data. This “big data” can be collected and analyzed to improve processes. Big data analytics is the process of examining this data. Ultimately, the goal is to discover information that can help companies make informed business decisions.
 
For example, sensors added to shipments can track temperature for perishable products. Also, sensors aide in keeping track of reliability and condition of production equipment. Then, data analytics systems use this data to track downtime, maintenance schedules and more.
What is the difference between machine learning and IoT?
 
In short, the IIoT gathers real-time data from connected devices. In contrast, machine learning analyzes that data to identify patterns. Then, it is able to make predictions based on those patterns.
 
For example, machine learning algorithms may perform “predictive maintenance.” As a result, the data can predict device failure or remaining equipment life.
