It’s become quite clear that the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is the future of industry. By now we’ve well and truly covered the point that IIoT is, in fact, not hype.

For end users and OEMs, the IIoT, cloud and big data analytics are creating very real business opportunities. IIoT not only enhances the communication between machines and people – it is facilitating the next wave of value-added customized business services.

To read more about the key benefits the IIoT, specifically its impact on the field worker, his boss, the business and its suppliers, read more from guest blogger Greg Conary. Greg is senior vice president of strategy at Schneider Electric, a Belden partner. Here, he shares his perspective on what this can mean for you.

Deploying a new fiber cabling system can be time consuming and expensive – especially if troubleshooting or re-terminations are necessary. Splice-on connectors help installers get jobs done right in less time, combining the benefits of fusion splicing with the simplicity of field-installable connectors.

Sometimes you can’t find exactly what you need. You find something close, but it doesn’t meet your requirements. Or it may compromise a performance aspect of your network or data center: speed, reliability, futureproofing or uptime, for example. As data center and network requirements continue to grow, and these changing requirements are adopted at each organization’s own pace, the need for fast, reliable and customized solutions will also grow.

While they don’t look like traditional industrial settings, outdoor sporting venues face similar harsh, environmental conditions to utility and manufacturing sites. The similarities don’t end there. The communication in these stadiums is also considered mission-critical – ensuring patrons not only have an enjoyable experience during the game, but that they enter the arena in a systematic, timely and safe manner.

To accommodate the growing numbers of fans at sporting events, stadiums need a fast, reliable and robust network communication structure that can operate under harsh conditions, such as extreme temperatures and exposure to moisture, noise and vibration. The ability of sporting venues to withstand these conditions, while also quickly transferring large quantities of data, is critical for avoiding long lines, improving visitor safety and seamlessly broadcasting the games to viewers worldwide.

Belden recently worked with VfB Stuttgart, one of the largest soccer stadiums in Germany, to upgrade its communication infrastructure for better control of the entire sporting facility.

Read this case study to discover how this type of industrial automation can help enhance data speed and reliability.

Using Internet protocol (IP) technology as a communications method, security cameras, digital signage systems, lighting, HVAC and building controls, wireless access points, desk phones and access control devices are uniting on one common infrastructure. These previously unrelated, standalone systems are now connecting to the IT network. This is why we’ve declared 2017 as the year of the digital building.

Fairly new on the data-transmission scene, silicon photonics is an exciting technology that promises inexpensive, mass-produced optical components through photonics integration – it transfers data among computer chips by optical rays that carry more data in less time than electrical conductors. Since the first commercial product was introduced in 2005, the last decade has seen significant progress in technology and development.

As more factory machines are connected through the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), companies could soon run into a major problem. The promise of improved productivity from these connected machines producing more data requires additional power and space on the factory floor.

You’ve probably felt this shift; more and more of your machines are connected, your data volumes are rising and you have even more pressure to increase productivity.

That’s why the M12 L-coded Power Connectors have been selected by the PROFINET User Organization as the new standard for 24-volt power supply systems used in PROFINET devices.

Read more to find out what this new standard will mean for you.

As recent test results show, category cables – which are optimized for Ethernet traffic – often struggle with the HDBaseT signal. The characteristics of category cables are, at times, overkill for HDBaseT applications; other times, category cable characteristics are not sufficient to guarantee a good signal. HDBaseT is a different type of signal, and 4K video is pushing that limit even further.
