Gartner says, “Wireless communications will be pivotal enablers of Industry 4.0 and smart factories. To capitalize on the market potential, product leaders at CSPs should prove how the distinct capabilities of wireless communications can augment business outcomes of emerging use cases in manufacturing industries. With smart factories, manufacturers want to reduce cost by optimizing operations, improving the quality of manufactured goods, improving worker’s safety and user experience and creating new value in the long run. Here, wireless technologies will be a key enabler with technologies such as 5G.”
In this research, we believe, Gartner is exposing three strategies to enhance the wireless connectivity product roadmap for smart factories that product leaders in CSPs can use.
Actility sees the Industrial IoT as a fast-growing field of application of low-power wide-area (LPWA) networks like LoRaWAN®, due to its exceptionally low power capabilities perfectly suited for the industrial automation world, enabling innovative services for improving efficiency, reliability, and availability of industrial processes and products. Actility, being at the heart of an ecosystem of IoT sensors and applications makers, offers an IoT connectivity platform, ThingPark, providing its LoRaWAN network server and software to manage both private and public networks, under a unified, scalable, multipurpose IoT network infrastructure. Industrial IoT solutions for smart manufacturing, powered by Actility’s LoRaWAN™ technology, allow to harness the power of data in order to streamline operations, reduce maintenance costs and ensure quality in the manufacturing process.
