The 'industrial Internet' is a term to describe the ability to track and understand machines and equipment in factories or in the field.

The M2M opportunities for CSPs in the industrial Internet
Table of contents
About this report
Executive summary
Three Industrial Internet scenarios present unique opportunities for CSPs
Definining the industrial Internet
Longstanding trends in the telco, industrial and technology sectors are merging as the industrial Internet concept takes shape
CSPs play a limited role in the computerisation of manufacturing plants but should size the opportunities for greenfield sites and dispersed assets
CSPs are not adequately engaging with industry groups that have emerged to promote industrial Internet applications
Big data represents an opportunity for CSPs to help clients use machine data
Connecting the factory and industrial environments
Industrial environments consist of fixed assets in production facilities and dispersed industrial equipment located remotely in other environments
In industrial environments and production facilities, proprietary technologies dominate and lack of interoperability is a challenge
Cellular has yet to make a significant contribution to industrial Internet applications in manufacturing plants, but this could be changing
Pipeline monitoring and heavy equipment monitoring represent key opportunities in dispersed equipment monitoring
Smart farming consists of the production facility and the dispersed asset model, but barriers to growth include coverage
Industrial Internet activity has been concentrated in developed markets but the impact of the Industrial Internet will ultimately resonate worldwide
Servitisation of industrial business models
Many firms are transitioning from product-based transactional business models to service-based relational business models, or servitisation
M2M is an enabling technology for servitisation, because it provides the means to deliver services and the context to make those services valuable
Smart connected equipment will open up new business models that will redefine industries and transform firms
The elevator and escalator industry is an example of an industrial sector that is set to embrace the new business models enabled by M2M
The mining equipment industry is another example of an industrial sector that is set to embrace the new business models enabled by M2M
