Hoske, Control Engineering, CFE MediaFred Yentz, president and CEO of Telit IoT Platforms, talked about the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) at the 20th Annual ARC Industry Forum on Feb. 8 in Orlando. Yentz talked about the formation of Telit's IoT Factory Solutions business unit and how they're working on helping customers to take advantage of the IIoT. Their goal involves multiple paths to deployment from one scalable platform designed to provide secure, robust shop floor access to the top floor and a connected ecosystem of original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), suppliers and customers.

Yentz said Telit is working to simplify connections with deviseWise, an industrial automation platform that seamlessly connects any manufacturing asset to any enterprise system, vertically and horizontally, without programming. deviceWise is designed for manufacturing verticals such as automotive, pharmaceuticals, machinery, oil and gas, electrical power generation, water and other industries.

"Companies recognize the value of the Industrial IoT, sometimes referred to as Industrie 4.0," Yentz said. "The challenge has been securely connecting high-value production equipment to enterprise systems as well as to the information consumer outside of the enterprise."

This focus is a key component part of Telit's vision of connected factories, connected machines, and connected consumers and ties directly into its core IoT business.

"Yentz said Telit is working to simplify connections with deviseWise, an industrial automation platform that seamlessly connects any manufacturing asset to any enterprise system, vertically and horizontally, WITHOUT PROGRAMMING."

I am excited to know how deviceWise would communicate with other device (Ex: Mobile App for notification) using cloud if not by programming.
