Terms such as the Internet of Things (IoT), “Industry 4.0” and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) are omnipresent. Now, connecting all devices and machines by the means of a TCP/IP based protocol is a concept which is rapidly becoming universal as well. This concept is present in many vertical markets and applications, including smart factories, smart oil and gas fields, smart meters, smart sub-stations, smart ships, Internet of Vehicles (IoV), smart hospitals, etc.
Although most aspects in IoT are software related, many applications put high requirements on hardware. Reliability and performance in particular are important, but also the total cost of ownership of a system needs to be as low as possible.
