Wireless Devices are a Crucial Component of Industry 4.0 Initiatives
Industry 4.0 is founded on the premise that connected and smart technologies can interoperate and revolutionize industrial and manufacturing production. It encompasses the rise of the next industrial revolution, the fourth such transformation in the history of manufacturing. One of the most important elements of Industry 4.0 includes 802.11 Wi-Fi IIot. This concept has gained traction throughout industrial and manufacturing operations, and embraces a wide range of connected technologies, including high-quality monitoring sensors, more reliable and powerful Wi-Fi networks, high-performance computing, and robotics.
Mobile, stationary, and wearable devices are increasingly being developed with Wi-Fi connectivity to streamline efficiencies, enable operator autonomy, and drive faster decision-making. Deployment of IIoT devices can significantly reduce labor and data entry requirements, while wireless sensors affixed to equipment or materials can feed critical information, such as energy usage, machine speed, maintenance or inventory, to mobile devices and enterprise IT systems. Having reliable, secure “always on” Wi-Fi connectivity to stream data and provide alerts is crucial.
