October 2018 News

This year’s Solutions Breakfast focused on the IIoT and its growing importance in all facets of business operations.

Robert Wright, founder and managing director of RJ Connect, presented insight into the workings and complexities of the IIoT.

Wright explained the IIoT as: “A universe of intelligent industrial products, processes and services that communicate with each other and with people via a network.” He discussed the changes that the IIoT will bring for enterprises, system integrators and equipment manufacturers, as well as the fact that a massive 81% of businesses have not yet invested in the IIoT due to barriers such as cybersecurity, lack of standardisation and the often significant upfront costs involved.

Delegates enjoyed in-depth demonstrations of the latest IIoT Moxa products, presented by RJ Connect’s experienced field application engineers and sales team, while enjoying cupcakes to celebrate the company’s 21st birthday.
