IoT/IIoT Connections in Unforgiving Environments

IIoT environments will expose networks to more extreme environmental factors including mechanical forces (e.g., crushing and vibration), ingress of liquids and dust, chemical or climatic issues (e.g., temperature and corrosive solvents), and electromagnetic interference (EMI). While industrial environments and IIoT devices are most often associated with these factors, the proliferation of IoT means that devices communicating via standard commercial Ethernet may also be located in more unforgiving environments than ever before.

Allied Ask the Expert: How Single Pair Ethernet Enables a Future of Innovation in IIoT

SPE technology is designed to connect multiple devices and/or machines to a network and eliminate the need for “translation,” which previously would occur within the gateways. SPE enables full, real-time communication from the sensor to the cloud in a native language without losing information. The technology not only simplifies machine connectivity and data transmission but, in a broader view, facilitates an open ecosystem, with real-time and high-speed communication in a much more cost-effective way.

Multitenant data centers are key to managing data without breaking the bank | Optical Communications | Corning

A multitenant data center (MTDC), also known as a colocation data center, is a facility where organizations can rent space to host their data. MTDCs provide the space and networking equipment to connect an organization to service providers at a minimal cost. Businesses can rent to meet varying needs—from a server rack to a complete purpose-built module. The scalability of usage provides the business benefits of a data center without the high price.

Digital Building Technologies: shaping our future as Human Sensors

Digital building technologies are developing faster than designers, users, and other stakeholders are used to assimilating. PropTech is an emerging set of tools that makes buildings intelligent, enabling them to communicate with each other, their components, and contained objects. They automatically collect data about their users, aiming to improve their performance. One example is Digital Twins: Technology that creates a virtual representation of the physical assets, from buildings to contained objects, facilities, and interacting users.

Introducing SPIRE a holistic assessment program for Smart Buildings

Built by TIA and UL, SPIRE is the industry’s first smart building program that holistically measures building technology and performance. Available now, the SPIRE Self-Assessment online tool can evaluate building intelligence based on an expertly curated, objective framework. And coming soon, the SPIRE Verified Assessment and Rating offers a complete smart building evaluation with the opportunity to earn a Smart Building Verified Mark.

Webinar:Delivering Power over Single Pair Ethernet

Single pair Ethernet is coming to a building near you. This webinar will discuss 802.3cg industrial and intelligent building targets, provide an overview of SPE use cases including industrial process control, intelligent building connections, sensors and building controls. Our speakers will then address PoE, PoDL, cable heating considerations, and SPE vs. batteries and wireless. The webinar will wrap up with a discussion on SPE testing
