Industrial Internet of Things (Industrial IoT or just IIoT for short) uses Internet of Things technology to assist in improving modern manufacturing and industrial procedures. These processes increasingly require connected apparatus to perform their tasks effectively.
Data generated over the Web of Things is growing exponentially faster than the traditional cloud environment where data is saved, so just the amount of data can justify the acceleration.
In addition, from the cloud as the destination, issues related to data transfer (delay and bandwidth) happen, so travel speed is the main issue. This advantage is necessary as a solution to the inefficiency of IIoT to Cloud architecture.
Perimeter (edge) computing architectures bring computing processing closer to the consumers and devices that need it, rather than centrally processing it in a local data center or public cloud.
This advantage is important for modern manufacturing and industrial processes that use large amounts of data that need fast reaction times and tight protection.
