We have all heard of the internet of things and how it is beginning to transform businesses and smart cities are starting to take shape. But what about traditional industries such as oil, gas, and agriculture that are stuck in remote locations with extreme weather?
These traditional industries have been blamed for clinging to an antiquated and inefficient approach. But despite the technological challenges of these remote locations, companies are turning to the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) to maintain assets and collect data in real time and improve operational efficiency.
In today's tech podcast episode, I want to explore how technology is transforming traditional industries and highlight challenges that you didn't even know existed.
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) shows no signs of slowing down -- the need for real-time data processing, analytics, and rapid response is a top priority across industries, including oil & gas, wastewater, precision agriculture and others.
Meeting these priorities can be problematic through a cloud-based service provider especially in remote locations where internet connectivity is poor. Real-time data processing and analytics are a top concern for IIoT success; the option of embedded intelligence and fog computing must be considered when the cloud is not fast enough.
With over 20 years of RF innovation under its belt, FreeWave Technologies is the undisputed leader. Millions of their best-in-class, outdoor, ruggedized radios have seen action in some of the harshest and most dangerous places in the world.
I chat with Scott Allen, from FreeWave Technologies to discuss how to scale intelligent networks and what software engineers should be focusing on when it comes to designing, developing, deploying and operating industrial apps in real time at the edge of IIoT networks.
