Industrial IoT requires edge computing

Industrial IoT requires edge computing
The industrial IoT (IIoT) differs from the consumer IoT and is probably more important as it helps improve efficiency of industrial processes and optimises resources. It is, in fact, fast becoming a must-have for manufacturing companies – as there is a direct and easy-to-measure return on investment (ROI) based on the higher cost efficiency of their operations.
