Use right network technology for right purpose

Many of us is thinking every now and then, would it make sense to throw away other network technologies and just use Ethernet or WiFi for everything? It sounds attractive, that single network does everything, only a single tool chain is required and only single technology needs to be learned. At a first glance the answer is ”of course”, but after thinking a while, the answer turn into ”of course not”.

Does your instrumentation support the new IoT services?

New core services in the domain of IoT concentrate on early detection of various exceptions in the target process. The earlier detection shall work, the smaller deviations shall be detected. Reliable identification automatically requires significant improvement in measurement accuracy. Most automation engineers have not identified, that the basic instrumentation needs to upgraded before the all new analytics can work as designed.
