5 Benefits of Smart Assets for IIoT

Manufacturers are always looking for new ways to improve their bottom line and extend the life of their critical assets. Today’s technologies built on the industrial internet of things (IIoT) now make it easy for manufacturers and service industries to improve operational efficiencies, reduce equipment downtime, ensure the safety of all factories and reduce overall…

Telehealth

Part 1 Mini-Series: Telehealth

We’re kicking off a mini blog series dedicated to Telehealth. For those of you unfamiliar with this concept, telemedicine (also known as telehealth) is the practice of medicine using technology to deliver care at a distance. Essentially, a physician in one location uses a telecommunications infrastructure to deliver care to a patient at a distant…

The Importance of Bluetooth for Condition Monitoring and Predictive Maintenance in IIoT

Condition monitoring and Predictive Maintenance (PdM) form the foundation of what we now know as Industrial IoT (IIoT) or Industry 4.0. It’s common to assume that both terms mean the same thing, but the reality is, they are very different. Condition monitoring involves monitoring a specific parameter (vibration, temperature, pressure, etc.), to identify any significant…

PdM Vibration Data Delivering High-Resolution using Enterprise Bluetooth IoT

     The following case study describes how SpaceSense 5.3kHz wireless predictive maintenance (PdM) solution gathers high-resolution PdM vibration data from Bluetooth low power sensors while retaining long battery life; and employs Cassia Networks enterprise Bluetooth IoT connectivity to deliver predictive maintenance (PdM) with a high return-on-investment (ROI). Figure 1 – PdM BoP Solution As a…

Bluetooth IoT – A Rising Tide

Enterprise Bluetooth IoT is a rising tide and an important development in the evolution of the Bluetooth® protocol. Traditional Bluetooth constraints – short-range, one-to-one connectivity, and lack of remote management – often relegated the protocol’s use to personal area network (PAN) applications. As a result, the overwhelming advantages of the Bluetooth protocol – very low-cost,…
