Systems are only as reliable as their weakest link and when it comes to M2M wireless, the weakest link is poor, intermittent signal strength. Low signal levels result in poor system performance, slow response times and reliability issues. For system installers and other M2M vendors, how do you ensure the very best cellular signal strength?
Data security is a hot topic with cyber crime seemingly growing exponentially and many high profile failures being reported in the press. Whilst much is written about consumer/retail world, the industrial world is now being targetted. So, what are you doing to protect your valuable assets?
We know the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is rapidly evolving, low power / high processing power, and reducing price per connected device, all driving the advance. IIoT endpoints create the connection to real world sensors and actuators thereby creating a wealth of information to be available. Add cloud services to the mix and the wealth of information is made available online from anywhere. IIoT endpoints typically use Bluetooth/WiFi/Short range wireless to connect but what if your site is truly remote?
