INSIGHT webinar preview: Strategies for smart communication

Nov. 17, 2022
There is a surprising complexity to communicating data between an IoT device and the cloud enterprise.

On Friday we connect with Patty Felts, principal product manager with u-blox,  for the fall INSIGHT webinar “How To Streamline Communications & Generate Quick Wins With Your Cloud-Based Industrial-Monitoring Strategy.” Today we preview that presentation with a chat about digitally assisted communication, the speed benefits of cloud computing,  and emerging opportunities for manufacturers who capitalize on smart new approaches.

Take a look…

Smart Industry: Are communications getting clearer or more convoluted in the digital era? 

Patty: On the surface, it seems simple. But when you take a closer look, there is a surprising complexity to communicating data between an IoT device and the cloud enterprise. As designers and engineers, you may not have the luxury, proficiency, or time to solve this. You need quick results. A pro tip to streamline communications in the industrial space is to ask yourself, ‘’Who can help?’’ In the digital era, it’s easier than ever to rely on expert partners who make it easy to connect and locate everything. With IoT communication solutions, you can move right through that complexity into a digital transformation.  

Smart Industry: What is a key component to the rapid deployment of a cloud-based industrial-monitoring application? 

Patty: Smart selection of messaging protocol is a key component to rapid deployments in industrial monitoring. Back in the stone ages, deployments were customized, proprietary, and heavy to maintain. Today, it’s a no-brainer to select secure, efficient, scalable, and standards-based communication solutions that are already embedded in most connectivity modules. It’s a key decision that generates quick wins and also pays dividends through the life of the implementation.

Smart Industry: What most excites you in this space moving forward? 

Patty: What’s most exciting is how vast the opportunity is for industrial markets. We see varying applications such as manufacturing, processing, instrumentation, energy management, survey monitoring, asset tracking, condition monitoring, remote control and monitoring systems.
