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
