Industrial IoT (IIoT), particularly the manufacturing segment, is the biggest part of IoT right now, according to Fortune Business Insights, and it is only going to continue to grow.

According to Grand View Research, the global IIoT market size is estimated to reach $1.11 trillion by 2028, and that means the manufacturing industry must be able to process billions of events per day in real-time and ensure consistent and reliable data processing and correlation across machines and sensors.

With that in mind, and to meet the coming challenges of scale, manufacturers are investing in smart factories to gain better control and visibility of their equipment and data. Moreover, the entire supply chain is becoming ever more critical to successful operations and meeting societal needs, as we’ve seen during the global COVID-19 pandemic. 

From predictive maintenance and increased machine uptime to providing end-to-end visibility for the supply chain, IIoT provides manufacturers with solutions that save you time, cost, and resources. An IoT investment allows manufacturers visibility inside, outside, and on the road.

There’s a lot to learn, and the curve is steeper than ever. To help IoT professionals stay ahead of the challenges, KORE is hosting a free webinar on August 26 entitled “Industrial IoT: Inside, Outside and On the Road.”

The webinar will help attendees understand how technology within factories is transforming the manufacturing segment through IIoT implementation, some of the advantages of investing in IoT for manufacturers, and how they can streamline their supply chains to optimize shipments and deliveries. IIoT provides manufacturers with solutions, and this webinar will help you learn how to access those solutions.
