The Internet of Things is creating tremendous hype, sometimes with seemingly little substance. There is real power and value to the concept, but it requires a new approach to make it work.
- Traditional client-server network protocols and master-slave industrial protocols don’t scale to the IoT
- Existing network infrastructures aren’t ready for the numbers of connections that are forecast
- And the best kept secret of the industrial IoT, over 85% of the billions of new connections that are forecasted are devices and assets that are already deployed
The webcast will present the concepts and architectures required to achieve the aspirations of the Internet of Things where intelligence must start at the networks edge.
