Although the MQTT protocol has been around for nearly three decades, the design of the protocol makes it ideal for IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) applications, the latest trend in automation engineering. This is particularly true for applications that stress “active notification,” in which devices provide data only when needed, as opposed to “passive notification,” in which devices are polled at regular intervals.
Challenges of networking the smart oil field
Falling global oil prices continue to have a back-breaking effect on cost-intensive upstream oil operations and the economies that are heavily dependent on oil production. As prices fall below 50% of those experienced in 2014, oil companies are feeling the pressure to finally implement modern cost-cutting networking technologies throughout their operation.
