Discussions about the industrial market today are often focused on the vast potential in the industrial IoT (IIoT). The huge potential for innovation offers the promise of significant productivity gains, operational efficiency and bottom line revenue increases, but only if it’s enabled by a supply chain based on reliability, stability and longevity.
These values will be even more important as manufacturers and system integrators adopt greater levels of automation, connectivity and autonomy—all with faster design cycles and more competition increasing the pressure to get to market quickly. The interplay between these requirements is what defines the industrial marketplace and the innovation developers will contribute to it.
The IIoT can add greater levels of automation, machine vision, connectivity and robotics to smart factories when built on reliable, stable solutions
