RTI Presents: The Rise of the Robot Overlords: Clarifying the Industrial IoT Part 2. Complimentary Webinar

RTI Chief Executive Officer to Discuss the Importance of the Industrial Internet Connectivity Framework (IICF) in Relation to the Industrial IoT

SUNNYVALE, Calif.— June 14, 2018—Real-Time Innovations (RTI), the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) connectivity company, today announced it is hosting a complimentary webinar, "The Rise of the Robot Overlords: Clarifying the Industrial IoT Part 2."

The smart machine era will be the most disruptive in history. Medical treatment systems, the power grid, manufacturing lines, process control and transportation systems work today the same way they did 20 years ago. But in the next few years, clever engineers in every industry will find a way to leverage the amazing change in compute power and networking. That feat will threaten everyone and everything that does not respond.

For designers, the challenge is to look beyond today's experience into a future, the future dominated by intelligent distributed computing…the Robot Overlords.

In the second webinar of this series, RTI’s chief executive officer, Stan Schneider will examine the key issue of connectivity, which is perhaps the most important aspect of the Industrial IoT. The Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) developed the Industrial Internet Connectivity Framework (IICF) to help designers understand the many standards and choose the right one for their applications. This webinar expands on topics presented in Schneider’s new eBook, “The Rise of the Robot Overlords: Clarifying the Industrial IoT.” To download the eBook, please visit:

The IICF analysis found that the Industrial IoT space is so big that the leading connectivity technologies - Data Distribution Service™(DDS), OPC Unified Architecture (OPC UA), Message Queuing Telemetric Transport (MQTT), Representational State Transfer Hypertext Transfer Protocol (RESTful HTTP), One Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and Constrained Application Protocol (CoAP) - essentially do not overlap. Thus, by understanding the use cases, architectures and target end users, it is possible to select a best-candidate connectivity standard for most problems.

This webinar uses the IICF results to present a simple set of yes-or-no questions. Answering them will make it easy for system architects to choose the right standard for their IIoT application. The IICF provides the background needed to understand exactly why this choice will fit. The resulting practical advice should help guide ensuing designs.
