The Internet of Things (IoT) is all about connecting objects to the Internet in order to collect & exchange data in an effort to create new value. The basic concepts behind the IoT initiative involve the thousands of devices that already and will soon exist in the world that are connected to the internet to facilitate data exchange to drive visualization, optimization and autonomy of those devices.

Applying IoT technology to industry, the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is the next evolution of existing technologies, but now taking advantage of lower cost connectivity, cloud and mobile capabilities to enhance operations and resolve functional gaps.

In this 3 part video series, we’ll walk you through the main concepts of Industrial IoT including the four tiers of IoT adoption, an explanation of Dark Data and provide you with examples of how Industrial IoT is being applied today.
