With the shift to the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Ethernet-based protocols enabling the collection of more data than ever from traditional OT-based devices and machinery, businesses are rapidly realizing the value of leveraging OT information to make informed business decisions. OT in turn can leverage IT data and analytics to improve productivity and efficiency, and reduce downtime and maintenance.
IoT News – The IoT, Together With the Evolution of 5G and Edge Computing, Is Driving Industrial Innovation
By connecting machinery and tools, the Industrial IoT (IIoT) enables manufacturing companies to improve the visibility of their production in real time. The huge amount of data generated by Industrial IoT devices constitutes the fuel for optimizing production, improving the delivery quality, introducing predictive maintenance, automating the supply chain and much more.

Single Pair Ethernet will become a key technology in smart buildings. It is the missing link for connecting devices up to sensor/actuator level by means of a standard Internet protocol (IP). It has the potential to replace existing field bus systems in the Internet of Things (IoT) in buildings or the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) in smart factories.
When it comes to total cost of ownership for industrial-grade cables, there are four factors to consider: The cost of the initial system, the cost of maintenance, the cost of unplanned downtime, and the cost of non-compliance.
Single-pair Ethernet (SPE) is a case where less is more: an Ethernet connection with one pair of streamlined wires rather than two or four pairs. This means power and data can digitally […]
Single Pair Ethernet is taking us toward the IoT goal of Industry 4.0 connectivity in the automation world. Using SPE, endpoint data can be delivered from physical devices to data centres in a super fast and reliable way.
Single Pair Ethernet is a key development and the infrastructure that will make another level of IIoT and Industry 4.0 connectivity possible. For the reliable establishment of the entire future SPE ecosystem, standards for transmission protocols, cabling and device components are all being jointly developed by a broad coalition of industrial automation and control suppliers.
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.
WiseUp talking with Panduit legend and Senior Principal Engineer, Bob Voss. In addition to his decades of service at Panduit, he finds time to sit on the Ethernet Alliance Single Pair Ethernet (SPE) subcommittee, amongst being active in several other industry groups. Tune in and WiseUp to what Panduit has going on. Whether you work in data centers, building automation or automotive and manufacturing you should check out this episode.
The Ethernet Alliance announced it will be hosting a virtual booth at the online BICSI Fall Conference & Exhibition, Sept. 29-Oct. 1, 2020. The global consortium dedicated to the advancement of Ethernet technologies seeks to connect with the BICSI professional association’s information and communications technology (ICT) experts focused on building infrastructure, and engage them in its activities in areas such as operational technology (OT) networks and Power over Ethernet (PoE).
