NXP sees the Internet of Things (IoT) as billions of intelligent connections that will encompass every aspect of our lives and make our world smarter, greener and safer. They believe that the biggest opportunities within the IoT will be in the transformational shift from the computing nexus to highly intelligent nodes - when intelligence massively scales, and the nodes have the power to learn, adapt and communicate. NXP are a market leader in microcontrollers with a broad portfolio of ARM-based MCUs with a low power, high security and small footprint – all ideal for IoT. They are a leader in IoT infrastructure with embedded processors for wired and wireless applications. From the end node to the cloud, NXP provides an unrivaled portfolio for supporting the incredible growth of smart, connected solutions including microcontrollers and microprocessors, security, connectivity, analog and sensors, and RF.
The purpose of Industry 4.0 is to make manufacturing more flexible, efficient and sustainable through communication and intelligence, thus increasing the competitiveness of German industry. One major component of this approach is control technology, which is still far from reaching its full potential. Improved communication methodologies and the rising convergence of information and automation technologies will deliver significant progress – something Beckhoff has always focused on with its PC-based control technology and fieldbus communication. Beckhoff provides the foundational technologies and tools needed today to implement Industrie 4.0 concepts and Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity, all via PC-based control. TwinCAT engineering and control software packages are available for the creation of applications such as Big Data, pattern recognition as well as condition or power monitoring, in addition to traditional control tasks – which can sustainably increase production and engineering efficiency as a result.
In the near future, billions of pieces of equipment will be connected to one another and massive amounts of data will pouring in. Advanced algorithms, high-powered computing, better connectivity and cloud storage all facilitate the emergence of smart systems. Knowing how to leverage the respective opportunities, however, requires a unique set of skills. Siemens has the engineering, domain and digital know-how to generate performance improvements across the entire value chain, from design to production and operations to maintenance. Digital simulation technology accelerates the plant design, the installation and commissioning as well as the entire product design and production planning process. Multiple components in systems and plants can be intelligently networked to communicate with each other and exchange real-time data. Machine Learning makes complex systems more efficient without human intervention. The intelligent analysis of operational data helps identify patterns and predict potential downtimes. Minimum downtimes boost reliability thanks to lifecycle services.

The Internet of Things
(IoT) will have a profound impact in the future. Enabling anything to be connected and providing ’smartness’ to these connected things will bring value across a number of sectors in the Networked Society.
Ericsson is engaged with a number of partners from industry and academia in an EU-funded research project called the IoT Initiative with the objective of increasing the benefits and possibilities of IoT, but also identifing and proposing ways to tackle the challenges.
The project analyzed about 150 application scenarios of strategic importance. A selected subset were tested in surveys which went out to a number of users and professionals within the ICT community.
Smart Connected Operations is a future looking vision that describes what the factory or production line of the future will look like. It will involve Industrial Internet of Things
(IIoT) enabled MOM applications integrated with IIoT enabled assets and IIoT enabled business systems. It is an elemental part of creating the Smart Connected Enterprise and is often where companies have breaks in the strands of the digital thread.
In moving towards this vision, both solution providers and manufacturing organizations are going to have to up the game when it comes to investing in IIoT. These investments will include the creation of new organizations that bring together IT, OT, and business leaders, new technologies that enable connectivity, cloud, big data analytics, and the development of new applications, along with the foresight to see that small pilot projects today could transform entire industries tomorrow.
