Interoperability: The rise of Single Pair Ethernet in IIoT
Traditionally, the networking architectures used within the industrial domain have been many and varied. With its established enterprise IT roots, Ethernet was always going to be the backbone network of choice to link the worlds of operational technology (OT) and information technology (IT) together.
Since the arrival of Industrial IoT (IIoT), connecting all the production assets, such as sensors, actuators, robots, and the myriad of other equipment, typically involved proprietary, vendor-specific networking. The availability of single-pair Ethernet (SPE) looks set to change this legacy approach. What is SPE technology, what are its advantages and benefits, and how can it enable cloud to sensor connectivity using a single protocol stack?
