Also known as the Industrial Internet, IIoT incorporates machine learning and big data technology, harnessing the sensor data, machine-to-machine (M2M) communication and automation technologies that have existed in industrial settings for years. The driving philosophy behind the IIoT is that smart machines are better than humans at accurately, consistently capturing and communicating data.

This data can enable companies to pick up on inefficiencies and problems sooner, saving time and money and supporting business intelligence efforts. In manufacturing specifically, IIoT holds great potential for quality control, sustainable and green practices, supply chain traceability and overall supply chain efficiency. United Technologies IoT Industrial Automation Infrastructure solutions adhere to network architectures such as CPwE, providing a reliable end-to-end network physical layer infrastructure—from the enterprise to the edge.

Our integrated physical infrastructure building blocks, tools and design services simplify network deployment for better equipment optimization and broader risk management. We will help you assess, design, deploy and manage a network infrastructure built around IT and OT physical layer standards that ensure performance engineered for fast, repeatable, and high-quality installations.
