Mike Fahrion - IoT on the Beach

Mike Fahrion

I hope you found the 2015 M2M Evolution conference in Miami as rewarding as I did. I escaped winter in Illinois to spend a week mixing it up with thought leaders from every aspect of industrial IoT.


I came away with a lot of new ideas, but I was also reminded that many people still expect industrial IoT to be a single, light switch event that will instantly make all of their network infrastructure obsolete. That’s a scary thought. Thankfully, it’s also inaccurate. In fact, many companies have already begun reaping the rewards that IoT information streams can provide, simply by implementing IoT tech that is already available. They’re not uprooting their existing infrastructure. They’re simply adding some IoT tech to the mix and acquiring some exciting new capabilities.

Every company will migrate to industrial IoT at its own pace, deploying appropriate IoT technologies when they see opportunities to cut costs, increase efficiencies and improve processes. B+B SmartWorx can help. If you have any questions or comments about industrial IoT, I’d love to hear from you.
