5 Industrial connectivity trends driving the IT-OT convergence
IT and OT both started on individual paths in the 70s and slowly converged in the 90s and 2000s to form today’s widely accepted 5-layer architecture. Over the past few decades, hundreds of successful companies such as Wonderware (SCADA/MES), Modicon (PLC) and Keyence (I/O) began providing products and services for each of the different layers in the 5-layer stack. As we head into 2020, the clear...
5 Key Insights from 350 Smart City IoT Projects
Smart City IoT projects are becoming fundamental for city development. The EIP-SCC (European Innovation Partnership for Smart Cities and Communities), for example, is spending up to €1bn to develop 300 smart cities in Europe by the end of 2019. The opportunity is evident for IoT solution vendors - in an analysis performed by IoT Analytics in Q1/2018, Smart City was the #1 implementation area of...
How 5G, AI and IoT enable “Intelligent Connectivity”
Developments in 5G, artificial intelligence (AI) and IoT technologies are leading towards what is being hyped as the era of intelligent connectivity.
