Developing and using technology for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is filled with complexities; understanding these complexities requires being able to navigate through the standards and protocols and related software requirements.
This special report covers topics from time-sensitive networking (TSN), the purported next step toward realizing an IIoT, to OPC Unified Architecture (OPC-UA), which could be the universal translator that connects machines to the IIoT. We also cover standards being set by The Smart Factory Task Group and delve in to the software required to meet the growing need for machine designs with more flexibility and new mechatronic approaches.
This special report brings together some of the most recent information on how control software, standards and protocols are being shaped by and in turn shaping the IIoT. Click here to read the special report.
