The use of IoT technologies in manufacturing is what simply constitutes Industrial IoT. The concept relies heavily on the use of big data technology and machine learning, making use of sensory & communication data to automate different processes. Without Industrial IoT monitoring, operations managers, plant managers and logistics coordinators throughout the manufacturing & distribution fields would lack the ability to make real-time decisions based on their assets’ health.
There was a time when phrases such as Internet of Things, Smart Factory and Industry 4.0, were nothing more than distant concepts. That time is far gone now. The fourth industrial revolution is here, and its being led by automation gained through increased interconnection of devices.
The eWON Flexy is a device that plays a crucial role in connecting your workplace. Being an industrial modular router, the eWON Flexy is built to allow OEMs and system integrators get closer to their goal of total automation and remote monitoring through top-drawer, blazing fast and ultra-secure communication.
Built to supplement eWON Cosy VPN routers, Talk2M is the first industrial IoT connectivity service that offers cloud capabilities for location-independent operations. Over 100,000 eWON routers are already in service while over 70+ TB of data has been transferred over 8 million VPN connections.
For the past two years eWON has been rated as #1 by Control Design Readers in the Machine Remote Access Category, and now for the third time in a row, eWON has been recognized as the industry leader once again.
The manufacturing industry has been keen on getting on board with the Industry 4.0 trend, and while the entire idea is enticing, the details aren’t that simple. The Smart Factory promises intelligent decisions based on the data connected from various devices and assets. This is both a blessing and a curse since interconnectivity introduces greater complexity, need for greater management and foolproof network security requirements.
