Factories and Warehouses

The flow of materials must be monitored and optimized for efficiency. Location sensors are embedded in components moving through assembly lines and inventory systems. The locations of forklifts, pallets and workers are tracked as well, while centralized software directs and redirects the activity in real time to effectively respond to customer requests.

By implementing predictive maintenance along with quality control IoT, BMW reduced auto-warranty costs by 5 percent and reduced the scrap rate of defective vehicles by 80 percent.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is not just the connected refrigerator. It's thousands of medical devices in hospitals, smart utility meters, GPS-based location systems, fitness trackers, toll readers, motion detector security cameras, smoke detectors, and last but not least, embedded systems. Each of these IoT end nodes requires connectivity, processing and storage, some local and some in the cloud. This means scalability and application elasticity to adapt to dynamic requirements and ever-changing workloads.

To support and accommodate all the devices, sensors and other network-connected gadgets that will eventually become part of the IoT, network designs will need to adapt and become more application centric, according to KEMP Technologies. From health care to automotive and manufacturing to consumer electronics, the Internet of Things is a quantum revolution in how we think about application data activity. Is your network ready for the application onslaught that's coming?
