Engineering The Internet of Things: Industrial Equipment - Industry Brief

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is changing the way the world designs, connects and optimizes machines. The advent of the IIoT brings together the things of the industrial sector, (countless pieces of industrial equipment, machines, production facilities, plants), with a network (high speed routers, switches and gateways), and the cloud, which hosts the software and analytics for making decisions based on data from the things. In effect, the IOT is connecting IT, product design and operational technologies together.
