Reduce IoT Cybersecurity Risks with Standards

Widespread IoT adoption creates more entry points into corporate networks, inherently expanding the cyberattack surface. Due to their specialized nature and limited computational ability, IoT devices are highly vulnerable, which hampers the integration of adequate security measures. To help protect networks, TIA published the first-ever global Cybersecurity and Supply Chain Security Standard (SCS 9001), to verify that networks and their supporting hardware and software components and subcomponents meet critical security benchmarks to mitigate the risk of cybersecurity attacks. 

Intelligent build solutions are key to the success of future network deployments

We currently find ourselves in a period of unprecedented demand for network infrastructure. The rapid adoption of digital technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI), predictive analytics and the internet of things (IoT), have further heightened this trend. As the digitization and virtualization of business and society continues, more and more demands are placed on the data center because of the immense amount of potential it holds. For data center companies to realize this potential, they must operate more efficiently. To operate more efficiently, the industry must undergo a transformation—a digital transformation, that is.
No longer is funding the main constraint to deploying digital infrastructure. A constrained labor market, challenges in the supply chain, lack of real-time visibility into project execution, difficulty in auditing daily project results, lack of data integrity and more are all roadblocks to digitizing a network as each results in network inefficiencies and costs.

Single Pair Ethernet: The Future of IIoT

Just as using a ‘codified and universal’ language enables the seamless exchange of ideas between people, in the manufacturing and cable industry, this is precisely what single-pair Ethernet (#SPE) does for the automation systems in industries. It allows for continuous real-time data transfer right up to the field level and helps bridge long distances in large plants like chemical industries.
