Telit's IoT Factory Solutions Lets Manufacturers Cash in on IIOT

By CIOReview | Thursday, February 11, 2016

FREMONT, CA: Telit Communications has established a new business unit, IoT Factory Solutions, enabling manufacturers to leverage the opportunities in Industrial IoT (IIOT), otherwise known as Industrie 4.0. IoT Factory Solutions, built on top of Telit’s scalable platform, blends the real and virtual worlds of manufacturing, via IoT. The solution connects all the elements of a production process–people, machines, systems, and products.

deviceWISE for Factory and secureWISE for the semiconductor industry, are the platforms that make up the IoT Factory Solutions, powered by Telit’s IoT Portal. The IoT Portal facilitates IoT onboarding, while reducing risk, time to market, complexities, and costs for asset tracking. The Portal also offers remote monitoring and control, telematics, and automation across industries and vertical markets worldwide.

“Telit IoT Platforms, formerly ILS Technology, is a leading pioneer in seamlessly connecting factory equipment to enterprise applications,” said Craig Resnick, Vice President, ARC Advisory Group. “Forward-thinking companies embrace Telit’s single, scalable solution for seamless integration of their back office with both production machines on the plant floor and remote assets in the field. Additionally, companies rely on Telit’s platform to streamline their value chain, exchanging relevant information in real-time with suppliers, field personnel, sales and customers – via the secure IoT Cloud connection.”

IoT Factory Solutions’ deviceWISE for Factory platform operates within the “four walls” of the enterprise, connecting and integrating production machines and processes with existing Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Manufacturing Resource Planning (MRP) systems and SCADA applications. The platform can be incorporated into diverse manufacturing sectors like automotive, pharmaceuticals, machinery, oil and gas, electrical power generation, water and others.

In contrast, secureWISE provides valuable operational insights, mission-critical performance, substantial time and cost savings, and new revenue opportunities to manufacturers in the semiconductor industry. It offers OEMs role-based, real-time access to their equipments installed at various production facilities around the world, by means of configurable end-to-end remote connectivity over private networks. The platform also allows FAB process engineers and managers on-demand connectivity to systems data along with real-time visibility to enhance process management and capacity gains to the existing machines.
