5 ways to improve reliability in iiot systems

Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) applications are extremely complex and require sharing data across hybrid networks on the edge, in the fog, and to the cloud. Reliability in these systems is a challenging yet critical requirement. To meet the demands, the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) recommends that IIoT applications implement the new Layered Databus Architecture Pattern. 

Key characteristics of the Layered Databus Architecture Pattern are: (a) devices and applications directly interface with the operational data; (b) its implementation interprets and selectively filters the data; and (c) its implementation imposes rules and manages Quality of Service (QoS) parameters, such as rate, reliability and security of data flow.  Many real-world applications from connected healthcare to autonomous vehicles have started to apply the Layered Databus Architecture Pattern. It is a proven architecture pattern for distributed real-time and embedded systems and is the foundation of next-generation IIoT systems.

Watch this webinar to learn specific ways to improve the inherent reliability of your next IIoT application using the layered databus architecture pattern. Specific use cases will be discussed covering applications in autonomous vehicles, connected healthcare, aerospace and more.
