Industrial Real-time Communication from the Sensor to the Cloud in Converged Networks - OPC UA TSN

Wednesday, 15 September 2021 9:00 AM EST

Presenter: Dietmar Brucker, B&R Industrial Automation

Abstract: The industrial communication market is dominated by Ethernet-based fieldbus systems. Although they share similar requirements and market segments, their implementations and ecosystems differ considerably. As a result, end customers and device manufacturers are faced with a multitude of technologies that need to be produced, run, diagnosed, maintained, and kept in stock. Although the availability of products and services is largely satisfactory, dealing with multiple solutions generates high costs and limits IoT capability and interoperability. This webinar introduces Open Platform Communication Unified Architecture Time-Sensitive Networking (OPC UA TSN) as a new technology and presents the current state of standardization and deployment. This time, the industrial prospects of fulfilling industrial communication requirements while leveraging the cost benefits of standard Ethernet hardware in the midterm are in reach. We anticipate that OPC UA TSN will reveal itself as a game changer in the field of industrial automation, being a candidate for establishing a holistic communication infrastructure from the sensor to the cloud.

Complimentary Tutorial 

The IoT Revolution: Challenges and Opportunities

The Internet of Things (IoT) will bring about tremendous improvements in user experience and system efficiency. It will have a transformational impact on all industries and re-shape business models and industry configurations. An estimated 50 billion connected devices will be deployed by 2020 and the total IoT revenue is expected to grow to $1.2 trillion in 2022. As a result, IoT services are expected to be a key driver for growth in the telecommunication industry. The focus of this tutorial will be on the evolution of cellular technologies to support low-power wide-area IoT services, related requirements, commercial use cases, field experiments and performance results.

IEEE ComSoc Webinar: 5G's Role in the Internet of Things 

IEEE Communications Webinar Series: Three Key Challenges for 5G 

This series of IEEE Communications Society webinars will highlight three areas of intense technical interest that require substantial development to make 5G a reality and realize its promises for the Internet of Things.

The Internet of Things is expected to be the main driver of demand for the higher information rates and lower latencies of 5G, and it will be a different world. The current LTE framework is built around the base station. It’s not clear yet how 5G, WiFi, Bluetooth, and other communications modalities will divide the IoT communications pie, or how they will interact in practice. Will high-bit-rate, short-range communications in ranges above 6GHz bypass the bases-station take on the local device-to-device load. Will backers of different protocols go to war over staking claims to the expanding spectrum? How will IoT networks coordinate among devices that may rely on different communications protocols? How much data will have to be referred through the backbone for central coordination, and how much will be allocated and adjudicated out on the edge?

GigaOm Podcast Interview with Oleg Logvinov on IoT and Power Efficiency

In this podcast interview (10/21), Oleg Logvinov paints a picture of how and where power will be consumed, and ways we can build a more power-efficient Internet of Things. If our society will have 50 billion connected devices in our future, then we need to start thinking about energy efficiency, not just in terms of silicon efficiency at the device level, but all the way up to the networking technologies, to how we design our apps to talk on the most efficient networks.
