Through the first half of 2015 there has been a flurry of activity in the magazine press relating specifically to PROFINET, PROFIBUS and of course IIoT. Here’s a recap of those articles to stay up to date on the latest coverage.
Standards and Protocols for the Industrial Internet of Things — Automation World magazine
A look at how open data access protocols like Profinet can be used to provide data for Internet of Things deployments.
Industrial Internet of Things needs data, clouds, and analytics — Control Engineering magazine
Without data there can be no big data, clouds, or analytics. The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) differs from the Internet of Things (IoT); IIoT’s things make IoT’s things. Open standards are an important requirement for IIoT, and Ethernet and software standards are available to deliver data for control and information for decision making.

The Industrial Internet of Things Is All About the Data — Automation World magazine
A look at how the industrial application of the Internet of Things concept makes for a very different use of data than the consumer Internet of Things, and how Profinet sources the industrial data needed via an open standard.
The Internet of Things Inside Grain Operations — Automation World magazine
Riceland Foods deploys a Profinet system devised by TempuTech that monitors hundreds of sensors to boost operations and safety, reduce downtime, and deliver operating intelligence for continuous improvement.
IT/OT guide to deploying Ethernet on the plant floor — Industrial Ethernet Book
There are numerous advantages to using Ethernet on the plant floor, and also critical issues to consider for a successful implementation: migration strategies, communications differences, security needs and the need for industrially hardened devices. IT and OT personnel need to work together to deploy networks.
Profibus and Profinet troubleshooting, Comprehensive guide — InTech magazine
One of the strengths of fieldbuses and industrial Ethernet protocols in general, and Profibus and Profinet in particular, is the diagnostic information. This diagnostic information can prevent downtime and accelerate troubleshooting. Includes a link to www.PROFIdiagnostics.com.
