Digital technologies underpinning the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) have ushered in an era of smart factories, hyper-efficiency and limitless productivity. Already, manufacturers face the pressure of fulfilling customer requirements more rapidly and with a higher degree of flexibility and customization than ever before, but traditional manufacturing models lack the agility and intelligence to meet these demands.
Digital transformation in manufacturing requires companies to fundamentally alter their business model and operations. This whitepaper provides hands-on guidance on how manufacturers can implement cloud-native industrial solutions on Microsoft Azure. The approach is based on the adoptions of open standards to innovate and connect the dots between manufacturers’ partners’ systems and their own—within the well-proven requirements of the ISA-95 environment.
Microsoft created the IoT Signals series of reports to give the industry a holistic view of the IoT ecosystem providing insight into adoption rates as well as benefits and challenges. The goal of these reports is to better serve our partners and customers, as well as help business leaders develop their own IoT strategies, and to provide the most up to date research on IoT use across countries and industries.
Furukawa Electric LatAm, part of one of Japan’s largest industrial groups, has selected Quectel Wireless Solutions to provide IoT modules that enable stable, secure, long-range connectivity for devices in the utilities and agribusiness markets in Brazil. The company chose Quectel’s EC25-AU LTE and BG96 Mini PCIe Cat-M1 communication modems to enable radio access technology (RAT) functionality for Furukawa’s solution access terminals.
Quectel’s latest white paper examines some of 5G’s first enterprise use cases in IoT, across six key verticals – agriculture, automotive, healthcare, manufacturing, media and smart cities – and explores some of the advantages and challenges 5G poses for each. If your organisation is considering a move into 5G for IoT, download your free copy now to discover how these industry pioneers have overcome barriers to adoption to be among the first to draw on 5G’s extraordinary potential.
LvLogics provides accurate and reliable silo levels as-a-service to end users, distributors and manufacturers of animal feeds, wood pellets or any solids or semi-solids. The patented solution enables low-cost sensors to be used in dusty environments and solves the issue of constant maintenance, manual workflows and unreliability due to dust in an aggressive environment.
Introducing the intelligent power suit from German Bionic, underpinned by global BICS IoT connectivity. By combining human intelligence with machine power, the suit, worn on the body like a backpack, supports and enhances the wearer’s movements, reducing the risk of accidents and excessive strain. Embedded sensors and built-in IoT connectivity enable ongoing improvement and integration with smart factory systems.
A farm can’t function without water. In order for a farmer to keep an eye on supply, water tanks, troughs and pumps must be checked at every opportunity. If not monitored, thousands of dollars can be lost in revenue, electricity and wasted water if a leak develops on the property’s supply infrastructure.
Agrint is an exciting new company using smart sensors to help detect the infestation of the Red Palm Weevil and similar insects. Agrint has developed a low-cost and low-energy IoT (internet of things) system which can transmit early detection notifications about infestation of a tree.
The Trans-African Hydro-Meteorological Observatory (TAHMO) is an application that recognizes the great humanitarian and scientific potential of the IoT. Partnered with Oregon State University and the Delft University of Technology, the organization aims to create a socially driven network of 20,000 connected weather monitoring stations every 30 km across the continent, to accurately measure previously undocumented weather systems, and leapfrog Africa to one of the best monitored continents in the world.
