Report finds digital solutions crucial to IIoT growth

Report finds digital solutions crucial to IIoT growth
Due to the need for capital efficiency, asset efficiency and resource efficiency, tectonic shifts are underway across process and discrete industries. These trends are nurturing the growth of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), Industry 4.0. The convergence of algorithms, cloud, data, devices and networks drive a creative destruction and expansion of traditional business models. Further, the directional shift from CAPEX ◇ OPEX cycles will see the market focus more on brownfield assets/modernisation-driven projects in short-term.

3D integrated circuits enhance signal speed

As 2D integrated circuit (IC) technology nears its scaling limit, there is a need to scale up vertically to cope with the breakneck pace of advances in digital technologies. However, the progress made by the digital components has not been matched by the advances in microelectronic components, which has resulted in hindrances such as memory wall. In this scenario, 3D IC technology’s ability to help create high-performing, low-power-consuming microchips is proving invaluable.

SON, LTE & HetNets proliferation to drive growth

Network operators are likely to face new challenges in achieving optimal network utilisation as LTE and HetNets (Heterogeneous Networks) will continue to grow. The multivendor nature of HetNets could give rise to interoperability issues between cellular sites, thereby negatively affecting the quality of service experienced by the end user. The higher degree of automation apparent within Self-Organising Networks (SONs) will help enhance network utilisation significantly. This implementation of SONs by network operators, in turn, will translate to greater uptake of SON-specific testing and monitoring solutions.
