As we move toward industrial things being digital and connected, putting in place the right communications infrastructure is a critical piece of the Industrial Internet of Things equation. Connectivity is required to ensure that data is meaningful and actionable.
There are a lot of network communication protocols (proprietary, legacy, variants of IEEE’s wireless 802.11, 802.15.4 standards, public and private long-term evolution LTE, etc.), but IP-based standards are the best option to ensure interoperability, scalability and future-proof investments.
At Paradox Engineering we’re always investigating and developing cutting-edge technologies. Today, we offer the best possible interoperability at gateway level by endorsing 802.15.4 / 6LoWPAN.
