Industry 4.0 and the Smart Factory

Smart manufacturing drives greater efficiency and productivity in manufacturing across industries. This digital transformation’s backbone consists of industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) systems.


IoT Applications for Smart Factory


IT/OT Integration

IIoT platforms integrate traditional IT functions with those of operational technology (OT) to transform factory floor operations. These platforms integrate legacy machines and sensors into IT systems and introduce edge intelligence. 5G accelerates this transformation by eliminating cabling and enabling ultra-reliable, mission-critical wireless communications.

What Is Industry 4.0?

Industry 4.0 (the Fourth Industrial Revolution) is the next step in the evolution of technology in industry. In the last century, manufacturing technology progressed from Henry Ford’s assembly line to computerization — taking physical data and digitizing it. Then automation was introduced. Now, with Industry 4.0, value is being added through artificial intelligence (AI) and analytics.

How the Smart Factory Improves Quality Control

When it comes to the smart factory, manufacturers need solutions that provide vertical and horizontal integration. This integration makes it easier to connect the factory to inbound and outbound supply chains. Telit IIoT data orchestration, device management and enterprise system integration solutions are suited to all manufacturing verticals, including:
