Industry 4.0 has been well and truly explosive for the last decade, and its growth doesn't seem to be stopping. The Global System for Mobile Communication Association (GSMA) predicts that, by 2025, there will be more than 25 billion Internet of Things (IoT) connections globally. While IoT has transformed industry, there are still challenges when it comes to streamlining deployment. Here, Amr Houssein, Managing Director of eSIM pioneer Mobilise, explains how eSIMs complete IoT connectivity.
In short, the IIoT enables Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communication, making manufacturing facilities smart and digitalised. By using sensors to capture factory floor data, manufacturers gain a comprehensive overview of their facility to optimise processes, improve machine performance, reduce waste and energy consumption, and result in less unexpected down-time. But what is the technology behind getting connected?
