Today’s passengers traveling via bus, coach or train expect their travels and commutes to be fast, convenient and safe. As it so happens, these are the same considerations and standards that we as consumers expect of our internet and cellular connections.

As internet access and wireless connectivity becomes less of a luxury and more of a necessity, how is the transportation industry responding to not only meet the needs of its passengers, but its own growing expectations?

Read more below about how transportation companies are applying wireless technology solutions to their existing operations and improving their standing with consumers, as well as within their industries.

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.

Companies everywhere are being swept up in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) hype – and they are starting to move toward holistic connectivity. Wireless technology offers reliability, flexibility and security – a powerful trifecta that is playing a crucial role in equipping these companies for becoming a smart factory in an IIoT world.

To get the most out of IIoT, teams should consider several factors when selecting and implementing wireless communication solutions. Learn what questions you should be asking first, and download a new case study to uncover how one company used wireless technology to bring more value to its customers by automating simple fine-tuning tasks.

Read on for more details.

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.

Demands on public transportation infrastructure continue to grow as cities expand and sprawl into suburbs. This shift ultimately affects capacity needs (i.e., more passengers) and physical needs (i.e., more roads and rails).

To meet these growing demands, a previously innovation-averse industry has shifted into an era of true pioneering. This has been exciting and rewarding to witness.

However, this escalating demand – coupled with growing expectations for safety and reliability – is creating challenges for the transportation industry. This is especially true for choosing the right networking equipment. Read on to find out about what to consider when evaluating train-to-ground communication systems.

Around the world countries are trying to combat their dependency on oil and reduce their carbon emissions. A key strategy for achieving this in some regions is a focused effort on dramatically improving rail infrastructure.

As a result many rail operators are striving to improve capacity without having to take on expensive and disruptive civil engineering projects. One solution is Communications Based Train Control (CBTC) systems which increase utilization of existing rail infrastructure.

Let’s consider the architecture of CBTC applications and the wireless infrastructure needed to support these train control systems.

People in many countries take reliable electricity service for granted. That’s because over the years large, mature, highly connected electric grids have been built out.

These electric grid systems used to operate perfectly well with one-way communication from the central stations out to the ultimate users. In the last two decades though, the addition of renewable and stored sources of power made bidirectional communications a necessity.

Furthermore the drive for efficiency and resiliency has led to a demand for smart grid applications such as grid visualization, real-time load monitoring, asset monitoring, smart metering and consumer load control.

Providing two-way communications over a vast grid is a daunting challenge. Fortunately there is a straightforward and cost effective solution. Public cellular networks along with the right network design and routing equipment can be combined to deliver reliable, high data rate solutions.

Let’s examine how to develop industrial wireless networks for today’s smart grid applications.

Keeping up-to-date is difficult when our jobs are demanding. Since you might just have missed one or two of our top Industrial Ethernet blog articles last year, I took a look at the topics that resonated most with our readers. I also reviewed our white papers and other documents to see which were downloaded most frequently.

The results show that the top industrial networking and cable/connector themes were:

1. The future of industrial systems as envisioned by the Smart Factory concept
2. Related to above but more hands-on in nature, how to build industrial Ethernet infrastructure today that is designed to grow for the future
3. How to select Ethernet cables for 600V environments
4. The benefits of high performance VFD cables for powerful motors and drives

If any of these topics are of interest to you, or you want to make sure you didn’t miss any of our top white papers, read on.
