IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) Webcast Series

Upcoming Webcasts:

The The 2017 Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) Webcast Series

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is a transformational strategy that is revolutionizing manufacturing operations across the world. CFE Media publications take an in-depth look at IIoT-related issues, strategies, and opportunities. Building on the past IIoT Webcasts, the 2017 four-part series will examine concepts, technologies, applications and case uses for IIoT and of interest to engineers, managers, and technicians across the production industries. Click here to register for the full webcast series.

Webcast One: Get your head into the cloud 
Thursday, April 13, 2017 at 11 a.m. PT/1 p.m. CT/2 p.m. ET/7 p.m. GMT


Automation technologies are converging with information technologies. To handle growing volumes of data generated by IIoT-enabled devices, companies will need powerful data processing capability. Cloud-based environments transform how process-automation projects are engineered and instantiated, replacing client/server. This Webcast focuses on how emergent IIoT technologies change the way process and automation engineers execute projects and sustain productivity in today’s, and tomorrow’s, cyber-physical world. Click here to register.

Webcast Two: Sensing and control at the edge: Microcontroller kits 
Thursday, June 8, 2017 at 11 a.m. PT/1 p.m. CT/2 p.m. ET/7 p.m. GMT

Microcontroller kits emerge as a go-to tool in IIoT-based industrial automation

In an unforeseen instance of innovation, microcontroller kits are being used to build IIoT digital devices and interactive objects. The industrial-automation industry has taken note of these commercially available edge-computer, board-level embedded controllers. What began as an easier way to program microcontrollers evolved into an open-source, electronics-prototyping platform and today microcontroller kits, such as Arduino and Raspberry Pi, are a force in do-it-yourself home automation. In a range of industrial environments, engineering teams already are evaluating the suitability of these kits and kindred solutions for process control and automation in production plants, factories and facilities. Click here to register.

Webcast Three: IIoT transforms predictive maintenance 
Thursday, August 24, 2017
 at 11 a.m. PT/1 p.m. CT/2 p.m. ET/7 p.m. GMT 

Manufacturers exploiting the latest IIoT industrial-connectivity and analytics advances are melding operations and maintenance data to spot trends that lead managers to contextualized, actionable insights.  At the same time, they are building the plant-floor technology infrastructure of the future. Connecting complex machinery and equipment to operations and enterprise systems enables machine learning, predictive maintenance and secure monitor and alarm. IIoT addresses significant integration challenges posed by the unique data types generated by the many kinds of machinery and equipment found in plant environments, from CNC machines to robotics. Click here to register.

Webcast Four: How IIoT helps cybersecurity efforts 
Thursday, October 19, 2017
 at 11 a.m. PT/1 p.m. CT/2 p.m. ET/7 p.m. GMT

Cybersecurity is a threat to enterprises large and small, at risk of being attacked from unexpected sources both inside and outside the enterprise. IIoT can reduce the cybersecurity risks inherent in legacy automation, instrumentation, equipment, and devices. The Industrial Internet Consortium has released a technical report for an industrial Internet security framework. The intent is to give all interested parties, including device makers, application developers, systems integrators and executives the guidance needed to deploy IIoT systems with best practices built in. The report will be the starting point for this Webcast presentation and discussion. Click here to register.
