Stay at the front of the IoT pack

The Internet of Things changes everything. Devices need to be more energy efficient. Access points must support many more devices. Wireless communication, via both cellular-IoT and wireless standards, must be secure and reliable in real-world deployments - even in remote and hard to reach locations.


IoT and the digital twin

Industry 4.0 or the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), describes the application of IoT in industrial processes and manufacturing. By implementing solutions related to big data, machine learning, digital twin, artificial intelligence (AI), predictive analytics etc., manufacturers aim to achieve the optimal level of responsiveness, adaptiveness and fully connected processes. Joe Lomako, Business Development Manager (IoT) at TÜV SÜD explains.
