Its product innovations, successful acquisition strategy, and ability to provide "one-stop shop" service have made Vishay a global industry leader.
As microprocessors get ever smaller and more power efficient, smart devices will penetrate our lives like never before. MediaTek is on the forefront of creating platforms for intelligent Wearables
, watches, trackers, home and office appliances, connected facilities, utilities and more. This will allow a revolution of connected devices, giving people and business’ the ability to track, manage and control their environments in a way that they never before had access to, allowing better understanding to improve their lives via better usage, performance and power efficiency.
The Internet of Things
(IoT) is an expansion of internet use that enables people, machines and elements including workpieces and objects to make use of new technological possibilities. All participants, computers and machines require distinct identification and communicate on the same basis. This makes the exchange of information (identification, addressing, data formats, transfer) standardised and uniform. Established technologies (hardware, software) from the IT domain can thus be used in new domains such as production processes and logistics chains.
Rittal is helping many companies participate in the Industrial Internet of Things
(IIoT) connectivity to reach Industry 4.0
integration, by adopting the modular structures necessary to help smart factories stay functional.In the Industry 4.0
era, data-controlled equipment and automated systems not only give managers visibility of what’s happening in their enterprises down to individual work cells, but also the power to effect change and avert disasters when necessary. Companies without an Industry 4.0
philosophy are more likely to be forced to deal with the after-effects of outages and miscommunications caused by data disconnects.
From monitoring the energy efficiency of our homes to finding more productive ways to feed the global population, harnessing these connected “things” and turning massive amounts of raw data into actionable insights will have a transformative impact on society. However, both technical and business challenges are slowing IoT adoption. Decision makers within companies are trying to gain a better grasp of expected ROI, cost, and scalability, while IT managers struggle with integration, Interoperability
, management, and the need to tailor to specific verticals.
Intel is addressing these challenges by offering open and scalable products, fostering a thriving ecosystem, and showing what is possible with pilots and use cases that demonstrate the potential value and ease of deployment. Intel offers a comprehensive portfolio of end-to-end hardware and software with built-in security.
To make IoT simpler to deploy and scale across applications quickly, Intel offer the Intel IoT Platform, a design blueprint that details how to securely connect and manage a fleet of “things” from small sensors to huge server farms that make up the cloud, while using various analytics tools and technologies along the way.
