IIoT

Control Engineering, Oil & Gas Engineering and Plant Engineering are hosting a series of educational webcasts in 2015 covering the critical aspects surrounding the latest revolution in manufacturing—the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT):

IIoT webcast three: Integration considerations

Tuesday, November 3, 2015 at 11 a.m. PST/1 p.m. CST/2 p.m. EST
One (1) Certified Professional Development Hour (PDH) available for all attendees.

Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) promotes intelligent devices and systems by sharing information and awareness among systems and the humans that use them. Integrated networking, security, cyber security practices and technologies help enable these connected systems. Learn from industry experts.

Learning objectives:

  • Understand why Ethernet, originally viewed as unsuitable for industrial networking, is emerging as a key to IIoT
  • See how software technologies used to provide commercial cloud services are relevant to industrial applications
  • Learn about important attributes in technologies that help software engineers write mobile applications for industrial projects
  • Understand IoT hype and IIoT
  • Compare IIoT vs. Industry 4.0 and the future of IIoT
  • Examine IIoT deployment considerations, with sample IIoT successes and failures
  • Assess practical IIoT recommendations for increasing productivity
