Aeris_Blog_IIoT.jpgThe Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is a classification of Internet of Things monitoring for large-scale machinery used in manufacturing and industrial applications. IIoT allows businesses to manage their machinery workforce more efficiently and safely. These applications can range from surveying oil well equipment to tracking HVAC conditions in large buildings and warehouses; virtually any piece of heavy machinery can be monitored with IIoT.

Compared to consumer IoT, IIoT is more demanding and requires the strongest, longest-lasting monitoring and connection tools available. If you go out for a jog and use an IoT fitness program to track your exercise progress, you can always restart the app if trouble arises and continue on your way. IIoT must be dependable without user intervention due to safety concerns and the sheer size of the machinery itself. It is safer and more productive to receive real-time alerts on operating conditions directly from a wind turbine than to send an employee out to check it directly.

Aeris_Blog_Aviation.jpgMany Internet of Things applications for industry occur on the surface of planet Earth, such as improving agriculture yields and treating sleep apnea. But IoT applications are being used to address major planning, maintenance, and fuel saving problems that commercial airlines are currently facing. In 2014, the International Air Transport Association (IATA) reported that passenger numbers are expected to reach 7.3 billion by 2034, and smart IoT monitoring and cataloging solutions need to be implemented to keep track of an ever increasing fleet of planes in the sky.

IoT/M2M SIMsSubscriber Identity Module (SIM) cards are essential for Internet of Things and machine-to-machine operations because without them no data could be collected and catalogued over cellular networks, of course. Since the objective of IoT is to remotely gather information from objects not typically connected to digital monitoring and internet access, IoT could not exist without SIM card technology. The range of applications for IoT/M2M SIM cards spans the entire physical world. Any object requiring attention and study can be tracked with a SIM card. Here are some of the most common uses of IoT/M2M SIMs.

IoT Sleep TherapyOne of the Internet of Thing’s largest contributions to individual welfare is via technologies used for healthcare monitoring. IoT-connected devices can provide more accurate information than self-reporting to a doctor, since using cellular, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth connectivity provides a steady flow of data from the device to a central point. Analyzing this information automatically and by medical professionals can pinpoint trends in health or disease.
