Digitally Transforming Industrial Automation
Also known as the Industrial Internet or Industry 4.0, Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is reshaping manufacturing processes and products themselves via harnessing sensor data, machine-to-machine (m2m) communication and automation technologies that have existed in the industrial setting for years. This way, IIoT transforms a semi-automated factory of today into a digitally active, synchronised and self-automated production facility.
WolkAbout IoT Platform understands m2m data flow process and serves as a backbone of modern, connected industrial systems. Since it is hardware and communication protocol agnostic, it is easily connected with a broad variety of sensors, controllers, industrial PCs, device gateways and legacy control systems, allowing interoperability and orchestration, while enabling secure integration of these assets with company’s operations and business systems. This allows different parts of a factory to communicate with each other in near real-time and makes the entire production process much easier to monitor, control and automate by using mobile or web applications. Finally, WolkAbout IoT Platform is fully capable of comprehensive process data analytics based on real-time performance. An enormous amount of data which is produced and stored on the Platform helps in identifying failures and inefficiencies rapidly, which then leads to improvements in efficiency, quality, sustainability, more targeted distribution, and supply chain traceability. Applications are numerous, diverse and easily customisable to specific business eco-systems.
WolkAbout IoT Platform is used for a wide range of connected industry use cases:
- Unified factory-wide interconnectivity
- End-to-end operational visibility & process automation
- Multi-site remote asset monitoring
- Remote equipment management
- Real-time workforce tracking
- Failure mitigation & safety control
