Telit cooperates with Wind River to foster IIoT adoption
Wind River portfolio enables addresses use cases for aerospace, defense, industrial, medical and transport verticals
IoT specialist Telit announced it is collaborating with Wind River, an Intel company, to accelerate industrial internet of things (IIoT) adoption. Through this collaboration agreement, the two firms are reducing the complexities of IoT device management, helping companies to adopt IIoT strategies.
Wind River is utilizing Telit’s IoT platform technology for its device management platform. The latest release of Wind River Helix Device Cloud allows enterprises to capture data on-premise or in the cloud, providing enhanced system analytics and remote device management. Wind River said that Device Cloud helps perform informed business intelligence to protect investments, utilize infrastructure, improve processes and generate new revenue streams.
The company’s edge-to-cloud solution portfolio enables a wide variety of IoT use cases across critical infrastructure market segments including aerospace, defense, industrial, medical, networking and transportation.
“Telit and Wind River see an addressable opportunity of millions of connections on the platform in the coming years, and through this collaboration Wind River will be able to offer a ready-built platform for developing and deploying device-to-cloud IoT solutions allowing customers to digitally transform their businesses,” said Yosi Fait, interim CEO at Telit.
“Wind River’s collaboration with Telit will accelerate the delivery of IIoT solutions to the global market,” said Keith Shea, general manager of Helix IoT Solutions at Wind River. “Together we are addressing the industry needs of our customers who know IoT solutions are no longer optional, but required to increase the competitiveness of their products and services.”
Telit’s deviceWISE platform offers a set of connectivity management, device management, data management, edge, cloud and enterprise ready-to-use connectors and services that reduce the risk and time-to-market of IoT by collecting, managing and analyzing critical device data.
Emerson says manufacturers are facing challenges to implement IIoT strategies
In related news, manufacturers are convinced the industrial internet of things (IoT) will help them improve operations and profitability by 10% or more, but most are struggling to develop the right plans to take advantage of the technology, according to a new survey sponsored by Emerson.
The survey revealed that about 60% are exploring or investing in Industrial IoT pilot projects, but only 5% are investing against a clear business case for how to best implement IIoT. The vast majority of IIoT investment today is in the early stages of plan development and small-scale trials, often as part of a larger operational efficiency program, Emerson said.
“Early IIoT successes demonstrate that manufacturers can achieve operational improvements that significantly impact the bottom line, but this survey shows that adapting to advancing technology is a significant challenge,” said Mike Train, executive president of Emerson automation solutions.
