We also exhibited at the IoT Summit last year. It’s a great chance to connect with the Linux developer community and get their perspective on things, since it’s so much different from what a typical industrial automation professional is exposed to.
In a recent developer survey conducted by the Eclipse IoT Working Group, IEEE IoT, and Agile IoT, 40.8% of respondents indicated the Internet of Things (IoT) solutions they were either currently building or planning to build were IoT platforms or IoT middleware.
Almost every large IT or OT company today has some form of IoT platform or middleware, with the current number of self-described IoT platforms exceeding 150.
Almost everyone in the industrial automation, process control, and factory automation industries is concerned with keeping their equipment up and running.
Overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) is a key metric for understanding how the factory is performing. And part of keeping things running is keeping things communicating.
Did you watch the Big Game on Sunday, February 5?
Not only was it a great game, with the outcome in doubt till a first-ever overtime settled it, but also... power for the Fox Sports television broadcast never failed.
Pretty important, right?
As the Internet of Things (IoT) gains momentum, this conference brings together system architects, firmware developers, software developers, and application developers.
Our developer.opto22.com site gets a lot of traffic from developers working with SNAP PACs, groov, Node-RED, and industrial I/O for Raspberry Pi.
Since all Opto 22 products are designed on open standards, you have a variety of ways to interact with them and integrate with other systems. The developer site helps you do that.
As noted in Opto 22’s recent edge computing technology primer, one of the key problems currently facing the IIoT is Internet bandwidth limitations. We’re talking about connecting billions of sensors to networks that were never designed to handle that kind of traffic.
I can remember the painful days of dial up Internet connectivity when millions of people started connecting their PCs to the Internet through tiny little phone lines, watching file transfers drag on and on for hours.
Opto 22 will exhibit and present at ELC + OpenIoT Summit North America
About the Show
This month Opto 22 is exhibiting and presenting a technical workshop at the Open IoT Summit in Portland, Oregon.
It's a great opportunity to take a look at some of our new products and solutions that leverage open technology—like a REST API for an industrial controller and Node-RED running on our groov Box.
Although we may think of Middle Eastern countries as being oil-rich, that description doesn't always apply. The country of Jordan, for example, has typically imported 96% of its energy from neighboring countries.
But Jordan has plenty of sun, and the government is committed to investing heavily in renewable energy.
You'll find the answer in our new technical note, Communication Tools & Protocols for Opto 22 Products.
