Industrial Internet of Things
IIOT, is embedded into devices that require connection via communications technologies to monitor, collect, exchange and analyze data–delivering valuable insights that enable industrial companies to make smarter business decisions faster.
IIOT goes beyond the normal consumer devices and internetworking of physical devices usually associated with the IOT. What makes it distinct is the intersection of information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT). OT refers to the networking of operational processes and industrial control systems (ICSs), including human machine interfaces (HMIs), supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems, distributed control systems (DCSs), and programmable logic controllers (PLCs).
