Edge Programmable Industrial Controllers/Computer for Advanced IIOT
The Basic Ignition IIoT Architecture: With Ignition, you can publish data from virtually any device at the network’s edge to an MQTT server located in the cloud or on-premise. The Ignition gateway can then publish or subscribe to any data from the MQTT server and use that data to build and deploy industrial applications across an enterprise.

IIOT Industrial Internet of Things

The IIoT is part of a larger concept known as the Internet of Things (IoT). The IoT is a network of intelligent computers, devices, and objects that collect and share huge amounts of data. The collected data is sent to a central Cloud-based service where it is aggregated with other data and then shared with end users in a helpful way. The IoT will increase automation in homes, schools, stores, and in many industries.

The application of the IoT to the manufacturing industry is called the IIoT (or Industrial Internet or Industry 4.0). The IIoT will revolutionize manufacturing by enabling the acquisition and accessibility of far greater amounts of data, at far greater speeds, and far more efficiently than before. A number of innovative companies have started to implement the IIoT by leveraging intelligent, connected devices in their factories.

IBM Watson

The IBM® Watson IoT™ Platform is a great way to get started, providing cloud-based analytics for your data. And since Opto 22 is now an IBM Watson IoT partner, you have an end-to-end toolset to connect your existing equipment to IBM Watson.

Opto 22 SNAP I/O connects directly to your sensors and equipment, converting their electrical signals into the digital data computers understand.

SNAP PAC programmable automation controllers not only provide local I/O control and edge data processing, but also include a RESTful API for exchanging data with cloud services like IBM Watson IoT.

Opto 22's groov lets you easily visualize and interact with your system from anywhere, using a simple operator interface on your smartphone or tablet. So when Watson IBM IoT spots a problem and a work order is sent out, your technician gets it right away.

What are the Benefits of IIoT?

The IIoT can greatly improve connectivity, efficiency, scalability, time savings, and cost savings for industrial organizations.

Companies are already benefitting from the IIoT through cost savings due to predictive maintenance, improved safety, and other operational efficiencies. IIoT networks of intelligent devices allow industrial organizations to break open data silos and connect all of their people, data, and processes from the factory floor to the executive offices. Business leaders can use IIoT data to get a full and accurate view of how their enterprise is doing, which will help them make better decisions.

IIoT Protocols

One of the issues encountered in the transition to the IIoT is the fact that different edge-of-network devices have historically used different protocols for sending and receiving data.

While there are a number of different communication protocols currently in use, such as OPC-UA, the Message Queueing Telemetry Transport (MQTT) transfer protocol is quickly emerging as the standard for IIoT, due to its lightweight overhead, publish/subscribe model, and bidirectional capabilities.

Challenges of the IIoT

Interoperability and security are probably the two biggest challenges surrounding the implementation of IIoT.

As technology writer Margaret Rouse observes, “A major concern surrounding the Industrial IoT is interoperability between devices and machines that use different protocols and have different architectures.”

Ignition is an excellent solution for this since it is cross-platform and built on open-source, IT-standard technologies.

Companies need to know that their data is secure. The proliferation of sensors and other smart, connected devices has resulted in a parallel explosion in security vulnerabilities. This is another factor in the rise of MQTT since it is a very secure IIoT protocol.

Ignition IIoT by Inductive Automation

is an end-to-end Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) solution that combines the amazing efficiency of the MQTT data-transfer protocol with the unlimited data acquisition and development power of the Ignition industrial application platform.

With Ignition, you can easily connect to plant-floor and field devices at the edge of your network, and push data from thousands of devices across numerous sites through a central MQTT infrastructure to both industrial and business applications.

The Future of the IIoT

The IIoT is widely considered to be one of the primary trends affecting industrial businesses today and in the future. Industries are pushing to modernize systems and equipment to meet new regulations, to keep up with increasing market speed and volatility, and to deal with disruptive technologies. Businesses that have embraced the IIoT have seen significant improvements to safety, efficiency, and profitability, and it is expected that this trend will continue as IIoT technologies are more widely adopted.

The Ignition IIoT solution greatly improves connectivity, efficiency, scalability, time savings, and cost savings for industrial organizations. It can unite the people and systems on the plant floor with those at the enterprise level. It can also allow enterprises to get the most value from their system without being constrained by technological and economic limitations. For these reasons and more, Ignition offers the ideal platform for bringing the power of the IIoT into your enterprise.

What could cognitive computing do for you?

Cognitive computing involves analyzing huge quantities of data and spotting correlations and patterns that are valuable—similar to what a human brain can do. But computers can analyze lots more data, much faster.
So predictive analytics and data analysis through cognitive computing can do things like:

Anticipate part failure and order replacement parts before there's a problem

Determine safer ways for technicians and operators to work

Improve manufacturing efficiency against a standard
And much more

Reviewing the literature it shows that LV is well support to become an MQTT server.

Several Libraries are avilable and there is a huge Blod and Forum discussion on this.

This LV MQTT library seems to be the flavour at present.
