It’s all about the things.
In IoT jargon, a thing is an entity or physical object that has a unique identifier, an embedded system, and the ability to transfer data over a network. Therefore lots of things are things! For IIoT we tend to think of things being, machines, equipment, vehicles, buildings, appliances, computers, and even people.
These are things that you can observe and control. IoT facilitates monitoring health, safety, and security of things; see status, helps to make plans based on how healthy they are, or where they are, and to compare and contrast allowing insightful decision-making. IIoT technologies allow Mtell to learn normal and failure behavior on a machine and transfer those signatures to a similar machine across the globe. Also, IIoT technology is the foundation for Mtell’s remote monitoring (datacenter) Reservoir and Summit products, allowing things to be viewed managed remotely, to be gathered into similar groupings for federated viewing across sites and potentially across customers, and for more intense and more accurate learning of behaviors of similar things regardless of disparate locations.
