Architecting the Industrial Internet

By: Robert Stackowiak, Shyam Varan Nath, Carla Romano

Overview of this book

The Industrial Internet or the IIoT has gained a lot of traction. Many leading companies are driving this revolution by connecting smart edge devices to cloud-based analysis platforms and solving their business challenges in new ways. To ensure a smooth integration of such machines and devices, sound architecture strategies based on accepted principles, best practices, and lessons learned must be applied. This book begins by providing a bird's eye view of what the IIoT is and how the industrial revolution has evolved into embracing this technology. It then describes architectural approaches for success, gathering business requirements, and mapping requirements into functional solutions. In a later chapter, many other potential use cases are introduced including those in manufacturing and specific examples in predictive maintenance, asset tracking and handling, and environmental impact and abatement. The book concludes by exploring evolving technologies that will impact IIoT architecture in the future and discusses possible societal implications of the Industrial Internet and perceptions regarding these projects. By the end of this book, you will be better equipped to embrace the benefits of the burgeoning IIoT.

Government and public institution compliance

Data sovereignty means data that is gathered, transmitted, and stored in edge, networks, and backend components is subject to the laws of the country in which it is located. Many countries have established specific compliance standards and certification processes, especially relevant for government agencies and for the backend components present in their IIoT architecture. These standards also make their way into the private sector in these countries. Many of these requirements are based on the international standards we just described.

There is no single United Nations resolution, European Union mandate, or international trade agreement to dictate one blanket set of data sovereignty requirements for all stakeholders and nations to follow (The EU's General Data Protection Regulation, GDPR, focuses on protecting personal data). So, laws covering data privacy and data hosting often differ by country and states. As companies adopt more cloud-based...
