• Industrial IoTInternet of Things


Wikipedia defines the – Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of physical objects or “things” embedded with electronics, software, sensors, and network connectivity, which enables these objects to collect and exchange data. [1]The Internet of Things allows objects to be sensed and controlled remotely across existing network infrastructure,[2] creating opportunities for more direct integration between the physical world and computer-based systems, and resulting in improved efficiency, accuracy and economic benefit.[3][4][5][6][7][8] Each thing is uniquely identifiable through its embedded computing system but is able to interoperate within the existing Internet infrastructure. Experts estimate that the IoT will consist of almost 50 billion objects by 2020.[9]

The proliferation of technologies including Internet, Web, Google, WiFi, SmartPhones, GPS, and Smart Devices has lead to the acceptance and even the expectation of smart and connected objects devices in all aspects of our lives.

Industrial IoT is the term of use of IoT technology in industrial application such as Manufacturing, Infrastructure, Oil and Gas Production, Pipelines, and Mining.

IoT technology used in Industrial Applications is often termed “Smart” or “Digital” as in:

The characteristic of Industrial IoT are:

  • Integrated – User Access to Information
  • Ubitiquous – Pervasive
  • Connectivity
  • Ease of Use
  • Intellligent – Cost Savings
  • Cost Effective


Industrial IoT devices must be pervasive.


Wired or Wireless IoT devices must be Network Connected directly or indirectly via Gateway. Web Access. Wireless can be short distances (Bluetooth), medium distances (spread spectrum radio) or very long distance (Satellite)


The IoT technology should lead to costs savings, increased safety, and more efficient operations.  It should not be considered a novelty.
