For passengers traveling by bus or coach, there are three standard expectations that need to be met: to be safe, to have reliable and punctual service and for the journey to be productive (have ample on-board WiFi, entertainment options and journey information).

Part of bringing passengers a safe and pleasant experience requires the use of things like regulation-approved seat fabric and Ethernet components, e.g., jacketed cabling. While these are not features that come to mind for travelers, they are critical considerations for network engineers. A full-fledged on-board Ethernet portfolio allows teams to enable their vehicles to safely and efficiently operate on today’s congested road networks. Check out how in this blog.

Part of the vision of the IIoT is that all relevant data will be available in real-time, leading to faster and smarter decisions. This in turn will lead to the design of more flexible and efficient processes. Many of these industrial processes will use specialized devices with sensing technology to perform automated tasks with efficiency and precision.

But with the increase in complexity of automated processes comes the opportunity for things to go wrong. As human presence in industrial settings becomes increasingly limited, the ability of these devices to provide diagnostics and immediate, accurate feedback has become critically important. The key to keeping such complex processes as simplified and as secure as possible is through secure remote access.

How does it compare to traditional VPN solutions, and how do you know if it’s right for you? Click Read More below to find out.

The competitive situation to produce higher quality goods is increasing in all kinds of industries, which also increases the need for greater efficiency in monitoring the production process. Performing diagnostic reviews and monitoring machines is known as “condition monitoring.” As technology continues to advance in this digital age, new applications and solutions can be utilized to improve this process and deliver higher machine uptime.

Wireless connectivity, therefore, has become a key technology enabler to change business models for machine builders. Predictive monitoring and less downtime are just some of the added benefits. Is wireless condition monitoring a good fit for your operation? We’ve outlined the process and provided some key considerations to make before deciding.

Time-sensitive networking (TSN) is a highly anticipated and widely discussed set of IEEE Ethernet standards for the industrial world. However, end users oftentimes express a certain wariness due to the perceived configuration complexity of TSN.

Although not considered a plug-and-play technology, several standardization groups are taking steps to simplify the TSN configuration and integration process. Key aspects of these important activities for end users are finding the right level of abstraction for human operators and automating the low-level configuration details underneath. These steps ultimately enable a user-friendly experience when applying TSN technology to industrial networks.

Read on to learn more about these ongoing TSN activities and best advice when thinking about TSN configuration in the future.

Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems have long been used in industrial automation applications to control and monitor data from automated processes. But, what most teams think of as SCADA today is considered outdated.

As big data, IIoT, analytics and the cloud become even more pervasive in industrial settings, SCADA systems are becoming smarter. Now engineers have a visual interface into their control networks, leading to more confident decision making because of the feedback offered through being able to see the big picture of the network.

Industries like oil and gas, transportation, water-wastewater, manufacturing and energy are all benefiting from SCADA, as it allows teams to see everything live, including where failure occurs, and puts control back in the hands of the users.

Read on to learn more about how SCADA is being used in substation automation and the benefits teams can receive through these systems.

Are you ready to embrace the benefits of an Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)-based system? One key component that will impact your ultimate success is security. Proper security measures and protocols play a critical role in not only protecting sensitive data, but preventing damage to your systems, facilities, employees, the environment – and even your company’s reputation.

To learn more about the importance of security in the deployment of an IIoT system, read more from guest blogger Fabrice Jadot. Fabrice is chief technology officer at Schneider Electric, a Belden partner. He’s also a board member of ODVA, an international association comprised of members from the world’s leading automation companies. Here, he shares his perspective on how security challenges affect the different aspects of an IIoT deployment.
