An Ecosystem for Proven, Open Industrial IoT Solutions
Intel collaborates with a vibrant ecosystem of leading technology partners to develop secure, interoperable, integrated solutions for IIoT. As part of the Intel® IoT Solutions Alliance, partners who demonstrate solution leadership can qualify as Industrial Solutions Builder Specialists and offer Intel® IoT Market Ready Solutions.
IT/OT Convergence to Reduce the Cost and Complexity of IIoT Deployments
The shift to software-defined infrastructure (SDI) makes it possible to add new functionalities to industrial systems simply by adding software applications. Intel is enabling this convergence of information technology (IT) and operations technology (OT) with open, standards-based computing platforms. We provide the hardware and software building blocks and specialized technologies that let you consolidate discrete functions—including process control, visualization, and data acquisition—onto a single system at the edge. With fewer individual, proprietary systems to purchase and manage, you can reduce capital expenses and lower operational costs for downtime, waste, and management.
Intel delivers the high performance that lets you scale up to accommodate your most demanding workloads—like machine vision—or run multiple inference applications on the same hardware. Realize amazing efficiencies with specialized Intel® technologies that let you virtualize applications, improve safety, and synchronize networks of devices.
Intel continues to advance strategies that include containers, orchestration, and hyperconverged infrastructure. As a result, you can consolidate data and applications, further streamline management, maximize uptime, and, ultimately, converge your IT and OT to increase the value of your technology investments.
Frequently Asked Questions
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) relies upon a diverse set of technologies to connect industrial equipment and systems so that data can be collected and analyzed. By adding compute to industrial endpoints, data can be processed at the edge, enabling near-real-time analytics and workloads like machine vision. Edge computing can also support production control, manageability, and security.
IIoT technologies are used for a vast range of applications across industrial sectors. These solutions enable equipment monitoring, predictive maintenance, quality monitoring and defect detection, behavior and production monitoring, and much more.
By adopting IIoT technologies, businesses can create smart factories, automate shipment tracking, improve worker safety, build smart grids, reduce energy consumption, and more. Many IIoT solutions are designed with the ultimate goal of reducing operational costs and enhancing productivity.
