The manufacturing industry is entering Industry 4.0. In the quest to automate production and make machines wireless and operations smarter, petabytes of data are being generated and streamed for analysis. Safe and sustainable management of data and devices is therefore a challenge. Intelligence is being moved from the devices into the cloud for increased performance, cost-efficiency and flexibility. The requirements for intelligent automation and concepts like digital twins in the production line call for a fast, stable, secure and simple connectivity solution.
Massive IoT means millions of devices like sensors, requiring a simple and secure way of adding, activating and managing new device connections.
With more connected and wireless devices comes a higher risk of issues & cyber breaches. Secure transmissions, updates and ways to verify assets & data will be crucial.
Critical IoT use cases require low latency and instant feedback. Processes will be orchestrated and controlled remotely from the cloud and need a stable and resilient connection with SLA guarantees.
