In this lead-off class, we will look at the history of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and the growing market it entails. We will look at the economics and advantages of the connected factories and communities as well as the challenges they will face. We will look at the building blocks of the IIoT including connectivity and infrastructure. For example, how can we add the advantages of the IIoT to existing networks that may currently use everything from 4-20ma current loops and serial or even proprietary communications? How can we integrate myriad data structures? And most important – how can we assure safety, reliability, and security? Join us as our instructor will discuss solutions to these issues and more.
