Industrial IoT (IIoT) is a network of smart interconnected devices that are used to monitor and improve operations in an organization. IIoT is playing a great role for organizations to achieve quality management, improved supply chain traceability and operational efficiency.
IIoT achieves all of this with the help of real-time data collected through the sensors which is then analyzed to achieve actionable insights. The value derived from an IIoT framework helps businesses grow efficiently and in accordance to actionable data insights. On a bigger scale, the Industrial IoT is a key component of Industry 4.0, smart manufacturing plants and rising levels of automation.
Use of Industrial IoT across industries
The industrial IoT is playing an important role in connecting the various aspects of digital supply chains spanning across multiple sectors of industries. Industrial IoT is being leveraged extensively in sectors such as manufacturing, oil & gas, mining, transport, logistics, healthcare, agriculture and others.
According to IDC Research, although IIoT is being used across many industries, the top three are manufacturing, transportation and utilities. Manufacturing leverages IIoT with a primary focus on asset management; transportation's main use of IIoT is for fleet management; and utilities deploy IIoT primarily for the monitoring and maintenance of smart grids.
IIoT for maintenance, asset tracking and optimum use of resources
The most ideal IoT solution is one which can help manage and control IoT devices from anywhere around the world. Organizations should be able to constantly check device performance and the environment by means of live data visualization tools for mission-critical applications. The should be able to remotely configure devices, detect precisely the issues present in equipment with the help of alerts and notifications, and fix them from anywhere.
The actionable insights achieved with IIoT include equipment maintenance, asset tracking and the optimum use of resources. It also leads organizations to continually improve their products, both in terms of design and technology.
Empowered with IoT, separate pieces of a product line can speak with one another in real time and make operations a lot simpler to manage. Industrial IoT is also a key factor in predictive equipment maintenance, thus optimizing costs and making operations efficient for enterprises.
Digital twins is another revolutionary technology made possible with the help of industrial IoT. By collecting the entire set of information from their products using IoT sensors, businesses can re-create their 3-D digital models, helping them to monitor the products through their entire life cycle. The information collected through the products’ lifecycle is then utilized for better product design and innovation in future.
Remote management of IIoT using TeamViewer
The most ideal IoT solution is one which can help manage and control IoT devices from anywhere around the world. In this context, TeamViewer IoT is one of the leading solutions and can be utilized across various industries to create smart IIoT frameworks.
The solution by TeamViewer helps enterprises with real-time data visualization through remote control session on IoT cloud dashboard. Organizations can also access any device securely by means of TeamViewer IoT Live Remote Control.
Using TeamViewer, organizations can constantly check device performance and the environment by means of live data visualization tools for mission-critical applications. They can remotely configure devices, detect precisely the issues present in equipment with the help of alerts and notifications, and fix them from anywhere.
The new version of the TeamViewer IoT has the ability to retrieve data from OPC Unified Architecture (OPC UA) servers, log files and support from custom monitoring plug-ins. The IoT solution comes with support for Raspbian, and with the new release it has been extended to include multiple platforms including Ubuntu, Windows, Intel and Samsung Artik.
This ensures remote management of virtually all IoT devices, including gateways, PLCs and specialized industrial machinery, making TeamViewer a perfect tool for complex digital supply chains and connected infrastructure.
