Creating and Deploying Industrial IoT Solutions in Enterprise Environments

This paper focuses on enabling and leveraging computational power at the edge

The first paper in a short series on the Industrial IoT (IIoT) focused on the intrinsic need to decouple data generation from data usage, functionality that is enabled by replicating the decoupled ICT architecture of enterprise environments. This is needed in order to allow data to be shared between apps, enable interaction, interoperability and resource sharing. These are mandatory parameters: without them solutions cannot deliver the multi-faceted IoT vision.

One of the primary goals of that vision is the generation of business intelligence that makes business processes more efficient, that saves time and can be the basis for new business models and revenue streams. Its foundation is an architecture that enables interaction between sensors, actuators and devices in the field with business applications in the enterprise and IoT. This is realized by layering IoT/M2M building blocks on top of each other, without creating dependencies between them, in order to realize a complete, end-to-end “stack”.

This paper covers the functionality of these building blocks and chapter four will show how they can be assembled in order to enable the creation of future-proof, customized industrial ioT solutions. In addition the authors of the white paper demonstrate how IoT stack enables the efficient, fast development of applications and the relative ease with which they can be deployed and managed in networks comprising hundreds of thousands of distributed end points.
