WHAT IS IoT (INTERNET OF THINGS)?:
The Internet of things (aka IoT) is the inter-networking of physical devices such as vehicles, buildings, software, sensors, actuators, and network connectivity. These devices are also called “connected devices” and “smart devices”. These devices enable the objects to collect and exchange data from each other. The IoT allows these devices to be controlled by a remote. They first obtain a remotely across existing network infrastructure by creating a particular environment for the physical world into computer-based systems. As a result, the IoT provides us improved efficiency, accuracy and economic benefit which reduces human intervention.
WHY WE NEED IoT?:
We need Internet of Things (IoT) because it makes our world strongly connected with us. Nowadays, we all having internet access and almost have internet infrastructure. IoT always try its best to establish advanced connectivity among these devices or systems or services in order to makes automation in all the areas of a particular location we want. Also, we can use this facility wherever and whenever. There are some of the Embedded Computing Devices like MP3 players, GPS even heart monitoring, washing machines and dishwashers, MRI, traffic lights, microwave ovens, implants or bio-chip etc which would be exposed to internet influence.
IoT Provides 8 main subjects to work:
1. Environmental Monitoring
2. Transport Systems
3. Large Scale Deployments
4. Energy Management
5. Industrial Applications
6. Medical and Healthcare Systems
7. Building and Home Automation
8. Infrastructure Management
Some basic requirements for industrial IoT before get started:
1. To merge your IT/OT teams:
As we know, there is a lot of scope and interest from the industry on IoT’s merger teams as well. Here, we will tell you how IIoT (Industrial Internet of things) will be used to purchase the value of converging Operation Technology (OT) & Information technology (IT) space. Manufacturing world is keen on building connected products that are smarter. Also, it means that we need to assess the world of Operational Technology and the Information Technology from two angles. One angle is from where the whole IT systems and professionals and the another angle is from business heads imagining new products for the industrial internet that are IoT-enabled at birth.
2. Just Integrate your systems:
The second step before you start is just integrate your systems; that is; IMS. An Integrated Management System (IMS) integrates all of an organization’s IT systems and processes into one complete network framework. It should be working all the time and provides complete connection to the users. By enabling an organization to work as a single unit with undefined objectives. But there organizations often focus on management systems individually often in silos and sometimes even in conflict. System integration is defined as the process of bringing together the component subsystems into one system and ensuring that the subsystems function together as a system.
3. Industrial IoT Exploding:
The Internet of Things (IoT) has been labeled as “the next Industrial Revolution” because it will change the way of people lives, work, entertain, and travel, as well as the way how governments and businesses interact with the whole world. Also, the revolution is already starting about IoT. Those smart home devices that let you control the thermostat and play music with a few words? Internet of Things. That brand new car that comes pre-loaded with a bunch of apps? Internet of Things. That fitness tracker on your wrist that lets you tell your friends and family how your exercise is going?
4. Lets Modernize your Equipment(s):
It is regardless of size and complexity, most offices encounter hurdles and issues. With the advancement of Internet technology, it has become easier to solve complexity into simplicity. Cloud computing, analytics, and automation have already put humans on ease with efficiency so far. As far as effectiveness is concerned, we need human input to manage and monitor the smart technology systems – that’s where the human role comes on priority.
