As demand for mass transit increases in densely populated urban areas, so do passenger demands for more entertainment, on-time delivery and safety. The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and impending technologies like Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) are making this possible.

TSN is a novel technology, currently in development at the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), that offers an entirely new level of determinism in standard IEEE 802.1 and IEEE 802.3 Ethernet networks. Standardizing Ethernet networks with TSN will deliver an important capability: deterministic, time-critical packet delivery.

It represents the next step in the evolution of dependable and standardized automation technology and is certainly the next step in improving railway communication. Click “Read More” below to learn more.

Are you new to industrial Wi-Fi and worried about perceived reliability issues?

Many companies worry wireless local area networks (WLANs) are unreliable or only for new equipment and state-of-the-art applications. Wireless technologies are no longer a luxury or bonus. They’re mandatory for modern industrial networking. As the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) drives changes on the factory floor, wireless infrastructure is the central nervous system that keeps everything functioning.

Read more to find out how you can identify why your WLAN isn’t delivering the reliability you need and what you can do about it.

The evolution of electronic cable is similar to the evolution of technology in general – everything is simply getting smaller.

It’s happening in almost every industry. Size is becoming more and more crucial in the age of technology with TVs and cell phones becoming smaller. It’s happening all around us.

Industrial manufacturing is no different. In the manufacturing setting it’s called miniaturization. Customers are demanding the benefits of smaller machines. What does this mean for machine builders? Find out by clicking “read more” below.

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.

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.

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.

Wireless technology is a part of daily life. Odds are, you’re reading this very blog post on a smartphone, laptop or tablet connected to Wi-Fi, right? Before that, you likely checked your email, favorite news sites or other sources of information without giving a second thought.

It’s true, the days of landlines and DSL have largely disappeared from our daily lives.

But I’d venture to guess that if you are reading this in an office setting – on a desktop computer or a docked laptop – you are still “plugged-in” to a wired internet connection.

In an age where you can turn your home thermostat up while you’re sitting miles away in your office, why are businesses so hesitant to take advantage of these advances, especially in industrial settings? Read more to find out.
