The Wireless Internet of Things (IoT) Is Destined to Make Factories Smarter

High costs, the use of old technologies, broken supply chains, a lack of production visibility, incongruency on what to measure and a lack of IT/OT integration are just a few factors keeping factories from running at full capacity.
To overcome these inefficiencies, companies are looking for new technologies and new processes to improve performance. Enter the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).
Industry 4.0 takes advantage of IoT to deliver predictive and prescriptive maintenance programs, self-healing production lines with near zero downtime, remote control processes, autonomous robotics, and augmented reality systems. These capabilities require better connectivity throughout the factory floor.
As result, wireless connectivity is becoming even more business and mission critical, leading to more stringent requirements regarding reliability, latency, and security. Not all wireless technologies today meet the increasing demands of smart manufacturing, leaving an opportunity for 5G to fill the void.
This whitepaper by James Brehm & Associates discusses the challenges plant operators face on their production floor and how wireless technologies can make today’s factories more efficient. Furthermore, it talks about the importance of Radio Frequency (RF) testing on the factory floor.
Effective Remote Privileged Access for MSPs
1/26/2021 8:47:12 AM
The massive rise in remote working fuelled by the COVID-19 pandemic has lead to an increased number of endpoints for MSPs to manage, while at the same time Cyber attacks on MSPs are escalating, so the need for secure privileged access has never been greater. This paper explores how secure endpoint management can be made simpler, while at the same time allowing MSPs to differentiate themselves in the sales process and generate additional revenue.
A New Approach to Zero Trust Privileged User Access
1/26/2021 8:42:03 AM
Our hyper-connected world is making traditional security perimeters increasingly vulnerable. The growth of cloud, mobile and virtualization are blurring security boundaries, IT departments are increasingly working remotely, and independent contractors, managed service providers, and freelancers all require privileged user access, leading to the perfect cyber security storm. This is creating huge opportunities for threat actors and cyber security threats to companies have never been greater.
This paper discusses:
• The risks presented by privileged user access, especially for MSPs
• What you should look for in a remote tool to access and manage your customers’ networks
• How to solve your remote privileged access needs, including how to use just one tool with all your customers

5G for Enhanced Mobile Broadband is Here
12/7/2020 2:52:27 PM
As part of the transition to 5G, enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB) for the IoT is becoming a reality. 5G cellular networks are evolving quickly with the deployment of more 5G spectrum bands, Dynamic Spectrum Sharing (DSS) in low bands, and the evolution from Non Standalone (NSA) operation to Standalone (SA) operation. All this serves to deliver high-speed data wherever people want it, but because the evolution of cellular networks is ongoing and complex, it can be hard to anticipate how these changes will affect the expected performance of a design.
Our common-sense guide to 5G for eMBB cuts through the noise and guides you through this evolution, so you know what’s here now and what’s still on the horizon.
