enabling industry 4.0 via the fog computing approach at the edge of the cloud

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to enable many new business models. In industrial markets the concepts of IoT, or Industrial IoT – IIoT is already gaining traction. At the simplest level, for example, it is providing the ability to more closely monitor a production line in near real time, or, in another example, manage buildings and their associated plant more efficiency, but for some the ability to radically change their whole business approach is attractive.

 

This whitepaper will illustrate the concepts between IIoT and dependence on a cloud-based computing approach. Taking this a stage further, the paper will introduce the concepts behind adopting a fog computing approach where a cloud platform delegates some aspects of control to local infrastructure elements.

 

How does Fog Computing enable Industry 4.0?

  • Increased operational efficiency
  • On-premise communications management
  • Reduced risks from internet failure
  • Overall automation management improvement
  • ...and much more!
